My grandfather Charles Power born 1908 a Wexford man left Ireland
Leaving his wife and two daughters 1948 to work in Birmingham England.
He was never heard from again, where did he go? I do not think he returned to Ireland but l can not find him in England.
I have been looking at passages list to American.
A long shot l know but found Charles Power travelling to New York 1956'.
Could this be my grandfather! The eventual address is Newcastle Ave Chicago does this connect with any Rootchaters.

London and Middlesex / lost aunt
« on: Friday 14 November 14 14:31 GMT (UK)  »
My aunt who served a sentence at Holloway Prison London. 1950/52.  Lost contact with her family no one knows if she continued to live in London and make a new life for herself. She originally came from Dublin but we don't have any conclusive evidence to say she returned to Dublin. If she is still alive she would be 84yr old, and because of this fact l caring give her name.

Dublin / Living in caravan 1940's
« on: Monday 10 November 14 00:29 GMT (UK)  »
My relative's were from family hear say. Living in a caravan at Crumlin Lane Terenure.
I have tried to research this claim without success. My orginal thought was there may have been a caravan site but having contacted the local library they were not aware of a site.
Does anyone have any recollections of site or an area of open land where folks could pitch up.
It's not vital that l get the info it's just interesting as these folk left Ireland to live in England.
Guess the caravan carnt have been of any great value as they left it behind.

It has been pointed out to me that Austin Ward born 1897 in Dundalk.  Father Thomas Mother Bridge, he has two sisters Mary and Cathleen from 1911 census.
I am trying to find Kathleen/Cathleen Ward with father Thomas. If anyone has Austin on their family tree I would be interested to hear from you. There could be a connection.

Sussex / Shoemaker dies aged 27
« on: Wednesday 06 August 14 20:12 BST (UK)  »
My husbands 2x gg father was a Master shoemaker this information I have just obtained from his death certificate 1857. He was born and lived in Brighton but I can not find information regarding his training. I am not sure if he worked for himself or an employer?
I contacted the Keep but was told that records only exist of people who were Paupers and I guess they would have been supported by the church, hence records exist for them.
Can anyone suggest where I may be able to locate training and business information. From the information I have no-one else in the family was a shoemaker. You maybe thinking why did he died so young he had T.B. and had suffered for two years before he died. His name was Richard Murrell his wife Katie Campbell.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Lord Mayor of Leeds ?
« on: Wednesday 06 August 14 19:58 BST (UK)  »
There is a story in the family that there was once a Bolton who was the Lord Mayor of Leeds.
I did many years ago arrange a visit to the Civic Hall in Leeds. Having contacted them explaining the family folk law. The C H did not hold any details of this Bolton, :'( but took me into a room that had large wall boards with the years and names of previous Mayors. Two boards were missing there had been a fire at some point and these two boards had been destroyed. The chap who showed me round said it could be possible that my Bolton was on one of the burnt boards. I do know that the Bolton's came from Warwickshire originally I think they moved for work and were living in Leeds 1851 census in Stanningley Road, well his wife Elizabeth was her husband John and eldest son were working in Newark - but I wont confuse the picture further.
If there any any Bolton folk looking for or know of this Lord Mayor please let me know. I understand that there is usually some truth in these old stories, I just can not prove or otherwise at the moment  :-\

Travelling People / ward travelling family of sothern ireland
« on: Sunday 06 July 14 20:21 BST (UK)  »
I have found my relatives marriage 1931 in Wexford, but can not find birth for her.
Kathleen Ward born 1905 or 1909 ? Her father Thomas Ward tinsmith. Carnt find on 1911 census searched all Ireland.  I have been told that Ward was a big traveller family in southern Ireland? She must have gone to school somewhere as she could read and write.
All seems to point to Wexford as locally where she lived, as she married there and had children in the area. 1st child is registed with Kathleen and her husband as living at Camoln but Kathleen maiden name incorrect when l queried at Wexford archives who gave me original details they said it was a mistake probably make at Enniscorthy Workhouse hospital where birth had taken place. Second child born recorded in Workhouse records but as birth had been outside workhouse staff did not notify records office. ??? I don't know names of Kathleens' siblings so lm thinking if any Ward travellers from Ireland are on Rootchat l am so look eager to learn more.
Ps Kathleen husband Charles Power he has proved to be a mystery too, tinsmith
 turned horsedealer.

Warwickshire / Taylor/Bolton
« on: Tuesday 17 June 14 21:24 BST (UK)  »
Elizabeth Taylor m John Bolton 1831 Aston marriage certificate is scant but it names a witness as Hannah Taylor a sister perhaps? On census 1841 Elizabeth is recorded as having been born in Warickshire all subsequent census show Middlesex London. I haven't found a birth certificate for Elizabeth who l think was born1809. She died Beeston West Yorkshire 1887.
A long shot l know but does anyone have these folk on there tree.
Or suggestions as to how l can trace Elizabeth's birth cert sorry l don't have her parents 1st names.
