Just a thought, but some records relating to stonemasons who've worked on the Cathedral may still be kept in the Cathedral, given the ongoing nature of their work??

As far as I'm aware, there's a team of stonemasons permanently based at the cathedral.


Cheers Jan,

Gave them a call yesterday, and they have various records, so I'll take a trip down there and have a look.

Thanks for looking for me Red!

As it happens, I work in town, and walk down Dale Street every day, so, I'll take a stroll down there....if the rain stops for long enough!!!!

The ancestor in question who lived there was a shipwright and I'm aware that this was a highly specialised occupation, could this mean that they were relatively well to do?

Cheers for your help once again.

It's not looking like this is going to be straight sailing, does it?!

As I said, thanks for your help. First thing to do, I think, is order the 1914 Marriage Certificate. At least that way I'll know Luke's father's name.

Was ranting earlier this evening at my mum over just how little they (She, and her brothers) seem to know about their past!! I say this (in jest of course), as my dad's family openly profess to know nothing about their background, yet, I've got back to roughly 1800 on every line of my Dad's side. However, my mum's side always seemed to be wealthier, closer etc, yet no-one seems to know anything!!!

I'm now starting to wonder whether they (Jordans) might turn up on the 1911 Census (Any idea when this might be made available?), all Irish in origin. I know for certain that Luke fought in WW1, as I have photos, MI...and my uncle has the medals!! Plus, the death index entry ties in with my Mum's recount...and this flippin' questionable census entry!!!!!!!

Hi Mosiefish/Redkop,

Cheers for the help. Will see what I can find from the location description. Redkop: If you do go, and it's not too much trouble, that would be much appreciated thanks.

Not been doing this all that long, thus, not been to the Liverpool Record Office yet. Just building up a list of references I need to check out before committing an afternoon/day to it!

Redkop: Is it quite straightforward finding the information you're after once in the library??



ps. Just realised that my map relates to the North of Liverpool (ie. Everton), and not Central Liverpool, thus explaining why I can't find it!!!

Hi Heywood,

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, this was the line I'd assumed was right, however, there are quite a few conflicting/erroneous details which are now throwing doubt on it all.

Firstly, my mum spoke to her aunty (Luke's [Widowed] daughter-in-law) last night. She confirmed, as far as she was aware, that Luke may well have been born in Ireland...Belfast, from what she can remember. Secondly, she recalled that Luke's father was a Whitesmith, not, as the census entry states, a Sailor (Assuming that's the right family!).

I'd found the family you refer to on the 1891 Census, and also the 1901 Census too, however, I'm told by Luke's surviving daughter (My Great Aunt) that Luke's father left the family when he was an infant...which doesn't tally with the 1901 census. However...!!!!

He did have a brother called Joseph; and (from what my mum's aunty said...) a sister called 'Maggie' (Who ended up working in Argentina as a Governess [?])...which, again, doesn't tie in with the 1901 Census.

Aaarrrgh! What's going on? I am now, seriously confused!!!!!

There is a slight chink of light at the end of the tunnel though...there's a marriage index (1914) which I know to be correct, plus my uncle has his WW1 know he did infact exist!!!

Seriously though, thanks for looking into this, as I'm at a real loss here!! He must have been born in Ireland......

Has anybody any idea where this residential building may have been located in the Liverpool area during the 1840's??

Been hunched over a copy of Godfrey's Liverpool North 1906 Edition and getting nowhere!!!!!



Ireland / Look-up request: Luke Jordan
« on: Wednesday 04 July 07 12:32 BST (UK)  »
Afternoon All,

I was wondering if anybody would be kind enough to look up an Irish Birth for me please?

My Great grandfather Luke Jordan is stated as being approximately 10 months old on the 1891 England Census, however, I can find no trace of him on the England and Wales BMD Index for this time period (Looked back to 1889).

Given that his mother was Irish, and that his father (Who left the family when Luke was still an infant) was most probably Irish, I'm thinking he may have been born in Ireland just prior to their relocation to Liverpool.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just found out that the '47th Regiment of Foot' were indeed station in England between 1872 and 1877, then Jersey and Ireland between 1877 and 1881 at which point they then became 'The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment'.
