Thank you, Mo and Darcy your help is much appreciated.

Mo, l think yours could be the one as Mary and Thomas had a son called abraham along with a few others Thomas, william, Richard and my grandfather John, so will search that family further.

Darcy, l will not give up on yours, who knows when doing family history weird things happen ::)

cheers

Could anyone say what sort of accommodation 62 Morpeth Buildings, Birkenhead, was like in 1871 census. Ancestor Thomas Green, 60, boatman, born Runcorn, wife Louise 45, born Bethnal Green and Annie Ellen Morgan aged 7 stepdaughter.
Thank you for any help.
