Cheshire / Coroners report 1949
« on: Wednesday 02 October 13 19:45 BST (UK)  »
Hi My Father was killed in an accident whilst installing a refrigeration plant in a dairy in Chapel Lane, Chester.
His name was Maxwell Richard Franklin and he died 28 June 1949. The inquest was 15 July 1949 City of Chester coroner David Hughes recorded a verdict of accidental death. I have contacted Cheshire Archives and I am awaiting a reply but I was wondering if there would be any newspaper reports and where would I find them also what newspapers were around at the time.
Warmest regards
Dave ???

Can you give us a bit more information on your Mom and the Murphy's to see if we can find e a connection, did your Mom go to an orphanage, did she have any brothers and sister if so what happened to them

Hi Margp my GF Elijah Galloway b. 1885 d. 1916 my GM Catherine Cairns b. 1882 d. 1919 My mum Joyce Wilhelmina Galloway b. 1914 d. 1992.
I haven't started researching the Murphys yet but my GF James William Murphy b. 1893 d. 1972 Gm Sarah J S (I don't know maiden name) My Mum had 1 brother Robert Cairns Galloway b. 1909 d. (He died young but I'm unable to find out where or when) She also had 2 sisters Margaret E Galloway b. 1910 d. 1915 & Catherine Galloway b. 1913 d. 2010 that's about all I have at the moment. Many thanks for your interest Dave

Northumberland / Adoptions before 1926
« on: Saturday 01 December 12 13:21 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all
What was the usual way in which adoptions took place prior to it being legalised in 1926 the reason I asked is because my Mum was orphaned in 1919 in Willington Quay and was adopted/or taken in by the Murphy family in Welfield but as far as I can see there was no previous connection between the families. I was wondering if there are any avenues I could research to find out how this took place.

Northumberland / Foster Lowery Galloway
« on: Sunday 28 February 10 17:14 GMT (UK)  »
Hi my GF Elijah Galloway b.1885 d. 1916 was one of 12 children who lived in Willington Quay.
Some of his brothers had middle names of Foster Lowery. ::)
Whilst I know the Foster part comes from my GGM Elizabeth Jane Foster b. 1847 I am unable to link the name Lowery I don't think the name comes from the Galloway side of the family. Can anyone help ???
