A little more firkling shows that there was a death notice for Frank in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.
http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/NBL/DeathNotices/deaths_DUNS on 27th June 1903 which will probably give details of when and where he was buried - if you don't already have that info.
I can't help with that as the Chronicle not yet in the database I have access to for 1903 and am too far away to nip to the library, but a request for a look up may find someone who is going to the library and has time to transcribe it for you.

 that's super - and super fast too!
I am impressed as ever by your kindness and ability to seemingly 'beam up' to the Library!

So now we know what the Chronicle said and where he is buried :-)

Thank you so very much for this.

So, last night I emailed Pete Wood the author who wrote the book on the Elliott's of Birtley, and he replied speedily. He told me this; 'He was left at the door of a public house wrapped in expensive clothes, and was taken in by the landlady, who was called Taylor. ' and that there is more in the book. So, now I will be checking the mail 6 times a day waiting for the book ;-)

He is also in touch with Doreen Elliott, who will be 90 next month and has passed on my details to her.

I think you might need a male descendant of Frank and a male Liddell to agree to a yDNA test to see how the results stack up to try to prove your theory.  :-\

Interesting story but without any kind of proof it is all just hearsay ... after all you are talking about a birth around 1832, and unless there are contemporary reports of Frank being abandoned as a baby, you won't know if there is any truth in the foundling story.

Proving his parentage is a whole other matter ... there are a multitude of possible scenarios.

I know DNA is not the be-all and end-all, but it might give you some clues.  :-\

He married as Taylor it seems

Francis Taylor
Marriage date   25 Oct 1851
Marriage place   Gateshead, Durham
Spouse Margaret Ridley
Record set   England Marriages 1538-1973

Cas

It would be interesting to know who he says his father is.

I went to the local LDS Family history centre today and looked this up. He didn't declare who is father was, or fathers occupation. It did tell me who Mgt Ridleys father was, so not a wasted trip :-)
