1891 Census Andrew CHRISTY / CHRISTIE
« on: Friday 01 April 05 00:26 BST (UK) »
Hello,

If it's not too much trouble, may I request another look-up, please?

I'd like to see Andrew CHRISTY (born 1844, Bolton, Lancashire) and family in the 1891 census.  They would probably be in West Kirby.


This is the CHRISTY family in the 1901 census:

Hoylake-cum-West Kirby, 60 Birkett Rd., Wirral, Cheshire

Andrew CHRISTY, 56, shoemaker, bootm, employer, born Lancs. Bolton
Georgina CHRISTY [nee SALISBURY], 40, born Ches. Birkenhead
Arthur CHRISTY, son, 17, bootm., employee, born Ches. West Kirby
William CHRISTY, son, 16, plumber, born Ches. West Kirby
Elizabeth CHRISTY, daughter, 15, shop assistant (stationers), born Ches. West Kirby
Mary CHRISTY, daughter, 13, born Ches. West Kirby
George CHRISTY, son, 11, born Ches. West Kirby
Thomas CHRISTY, son, 9, born Ches. West Kirby
Anne CHRISTY, daughter, 8, born Ches. West Kirby
Malinda [should be Linda] CHRISTY, daughter, 5, born Ches. West Kirby
Florence CHRISTY, daughter, 3, born Ches. West Kirby
Ada CHRISTY, daughter, 1, born Ches. West Kirby

[They might have had twins born some time after the 1901 census.]


This is the CHRISTY family in the 1881 census:

36 Bury Old Road
Tonge With Haulgh, Lancashire

Andrew CHRISTY, W[idower], 36, born Bolton, Lancashire, Boot & Shoe Maker
Robert CHRISTY, Son, 8, born Seacombe, Cheshire, Scholar
Fred. CHRISTY, Son, 5, born Seacombe, Cheshire, Scholar


Family lore has it that Andrew CHRISTY was married three times and had 17 children.  (I have Georgina SALISBURY's maiden name from their daughter, Linda CHRISTY's, birth certificate.)  A family member thinks that Andrew CHRISTY's cobbler shop was preserved as a historical building but we haven't been able to confirm this.

Linda CHRISTY married William Francis HOLLAND in Cheshire in 1922 and they later came to Canada.  They were my husband's grandparents.  Linda's sister, Florence ("Flo"), moved to Australia.  Some of their siblings might have gone to the United States.

Thank you for any help or information you might be able to give us!

Regards,
Josephine

Tricia Q,

Thank you very much for your help!

Regards,
Josephine

P.S.

Thanks to you, I now know about another son of Andrew CHRISTY and his (first?) wife:  Albert CHRISTY, born 1879.  Albert is listed as a nephew in the HUGHES household in the 1881 census, so it looks like Andrew CHRISTY had a sister named Sarah:


1881 Census:

31 Demesne Street
Poulton Cum Seacombe, Cheshire

James HUGHES, 35, born Bolton, Lancashire, Labourer In Iron (Manuf)
Sarah HUGHES, 34, born Liverpool, Lancashire
Albert CHRISTIE, Nephew, 2, born Seacombe, Cheshire

Ireland: Carson; Colbert; Coy; Craig; McGlinchey; Riley; Rooney; Trotter; Waters/Watters

Have you seen this marriage reference?

Marriage quarter ending March 1869
Andrew Christy
Bolton
8c
258

Unfortunately there are 2 males and only one female on the same page and as I haven't been able to trace Andrew on the 1871 census you will need to send for the cert to find out who he married. (The female is Rachel Benbow)

Birkenhead is correct registration area for his birthplace. This will give his mother's name 
 
Christy, Albert
 Births Quarter ending March 1879 Birkenhead 8a 565

Also:-

Fred Christy
Birth Quarter ending March 1876
Birkenhead 8a 578

Haven't given birth details for Robert as there were 2 born the same year, same area.

Tricia Q,

Thanks again for all of your help!  We can't afford to send away for the birth and marriage records right now but hopefully one day...  ; )

It's interesting that you weren't able to find Andrew CHRISTY / CHRISTIE in the 1871 census.  Just for my future reference, were you looking only in Cheshire?

Thank you!
