Cheshire Completed Lookup Requests / Kingsley/Frodsham, Cheshire
« on: Tuesday 12 February 08 16:50 GMT (UK)  »
I am hoping someone can provide information(or point me in the right direction) on my Peter Worrall born Kingsley,  Cheshire about 1819ish. (Probably baptised in Overton or Frodsham)

Father Joseph Worrall I have no year of birth or where born for him but it is most likely in the Frodsham area of Cheshire if not Kingsley itself.



I do know that by 1843 Peter is living in Hulme, Manchester. He turns up again in the 1851 census for that area. He gives his occupation as a Carpenter/Joiner

All advice/guidence greatly recieved.

Marjie

I have just gone through that site and unfortunately there is only the Bell Hotel for Lozells Road and a lot of photo's taken at the time of the 1980's riots.

However I do have a contact number(no address) for Handsworth Historic Society on my cell phone, but at the moment cannot find by charger (why doesn't someone invent a phone that doesn't need charging!-just for people like me) ::)

I will post the contact number later today hopefully.

Actually just found their website address and since they have not provided contact numbers I will not publicly post any here. But here is their site link with email contact details.

Yes I was attempting to download a picture but as it wasn't actually what you wanted I won't bother.
It was an image of a pub a couple of doors up on the same street.

If you can get to Birmingham Central Library they have a wealth of photo's covering that particular road. I am surprised so few made it to the above site.

The picture was of the Bell Hotel  60 Lozell Lane(which became Lozell Rd) around the late 1800.
