Thanks for looking into it everyone!
looks like i wasn't going mad after all.

Still seams like a little bit of a loose connection as Albert doesn't appear in many documents apart from when he's about 6 and then again when he's older, with his own family.

I'm very new to this site. I've already posted elsewhere about this so forgive me if you've already read it!!
I'm trying to find out more about my great grandparents. Charles Halsall and Annie Hadwin, both living in Southport in the 1900's upwards born about 1875. Annie, according to my mum was Romany and Charles was a clown. I've traced Annie, whose parents were David Hadwin and Jane Smith, back to Morecambe. On their marriage cert Jane's father is James Smith an Ostler and Jane comes from Kendal. I found a Smith family in Milnthorpe in the 1841 which appear to fit. James Smith is an Ostler at The Cross Keys Inn and his parents are John Smith and Dorothy Bindloss. (The Bindloss are a wealthy family from Milnthorpe/Heversham)
The reason I'm linking this to the Hollands is that living with my great grandparents, Charles and Annie, in 1939 was a 16 year old boy called William Healy Holland, a grocer's assistant. He was taken in my great grandparents and my mum remembers him very well. He married in Southport to a Monica and moved to Crosby. Apparently he was quite musical and my mum said he met or knew The Beatles!! He died quite young in 1982 at the age of 57. I'm quite interested to find out more about him. I know his birthday was 5/4/1925 but don't know where he came from. The interesting fact is that a Walter Holland ran a grocer's shop in the next road in Southport in 1939 and I wondered if there was a link between them.
