Lancashire / Who lived at 36 Carter Street Liverpool 1914 and 1915?
« on: Tuesday 18 January 22 07:08 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find who was living at 36 Carter Street Toxteth Park Liverpool in 1914 and 1915.

Also who else was living at 1 Ampthill Road Aigburth Liverpool in 1914 and 1915, beside Henry Benson, Caroline Augusta Benson and William Kitchin Benson.

I am specifically interested in the years 1914 and 1915 only for both addresses.

Thank you

Margaret  :)

Pity you couldn't find a family connection brigidmac.

The photos belong to a cousin of my husband, David (discovered through DNA) He is descended from Janie's brother John Joseph Cain who emigrated to New Zealand.

Yes. Kudos to everyone who has contributed.  8)

Thank you brigidmac for taking the time to read all of this - my husband and I thought at first the same thing about Albert being the relative who owned the sweet shop in Liverpool where Edna took Terry for visits, however sadly, Albert died in 1936.

From what I can piece together it is probable that Janie and Albert met in the Isle of Man and then she came to Liverpool to give birth to Edna perhaps earlier as Albert had enlisted in the Army and was stationed at Seaforth Liverpool with the Kings  Liverpool Regiment before heading off to billets then battle on 6th March the day before Edna's baptism on 7th March 1915 in Aigburth, see below link:

Albert was fighting overseas until at least 1920. In the 1921 census he was living with his parents and elder sister at 54 Loch Promenade Douglas Isle of Man -  6 year old Edna was living with her adoptive parents Hugh and Lydia Williams at 6 Piercy Street Failsworth and I can't find Janie on the 1921 census. She did not return home to her father and step mother who were living in Strang, Braddan  Isle of Man in 1921 and both sets of her grandparents had died. I thought I found a death for her in 1918 in Birkenhead Cheshire and bought the certificate - the informant was M. Murray sister. Janie's only sister was Mary Catherine 'Katie' Cain who was single when she married Arthur Quayle in 1920 in Braddan Isle of Man.

Albert married Nancy Annie Katherine Todd  in 1926 at Douglas IOM however sadly she died in 1928. He married Kathleen Garnett Ore in 1934, There were no children from either marriage.

Al died 19 June 1936 in Douglas IOM. See newpaper obituaries included in link above.

It's interesting that you also have Cain(e) family from IOM and near Liverpool. My husband has a public tree on Ancestry that I manage if you want to take a look - it would be great if you found some family in common.

Caine Edna
Birth 20 Feb 1915
Baptism 07 Mar 1915
Residence   1 Amphtill Rd

Gore's Directory for 1914 shows that Caroline Benson was already the occupier of 1 Ampthill Road by then.

Shaun, I was wondering if Gore's directory has entries for 1915 and if Jane Elizabeth Cain (Elizabeth Jane Cain) or anyone else was listed as living with the Benson Family at the above address?  It's just that I can't find any trace of Janie after 1915. Caroline and Henry Benson had a son, William Kitchin Benson who enlisted in the Army in 1915 giving 1 Ampthill Road as his address also.

Thank you Margaret
