Hi ,
This is my first post

Iím struggling to find  my grandfatherís birth in the GRO records. His parents were Nicholas Brown b.1850 in Wexford and his mother was Catherine Daley and I know they emigrated to England around the time my grandfather was born about 1885/6.

I have found a baptism record for 27/5/1885 for a Joannes Brown at St Johnís church Liverpool, which I think is correct but I canít find anything in the GRO index.
It is possible John was born on the journey over here and I wondered if births at sea are recorded differently or if it might have been recorded in the Irish records.
It might, of course just not have been registered but Iíd appreciate any suggestions which may help.

Cheers, Rose Red.

If that is the correct one it gives names of the godparents which could be a help.

Thanks.  It really could be them., the initials are correct and Aberwyswyth is a very good clue.

Would the 19 year old Miss M Pritchard be travelling with them.

It's mentioned in this book, so am I right in thinking it was the workhouse,  later a hospital

Hi, I'm also descended from Catherine Courtney. How is your search going? Have you managed to track her down? Tim

Montgomeryshire / The Lodge Caersws.
« on: Saturday 10 February 24 16:13 GMT (UK)  »
Michael Finn 73 was buried in Wrexham in 1943.
His abode in the register is The Lodge Caersws.

I can't find anything about this place only a newspaper article in 1904 that suggests that it might have been a workhouse.  Vagrants are mentioned.

Can anyone help.
