Hi,

Been trying to reconcile Robert Ellis's birth place ranging from Gurley, Wales to Cargurly, Ireland to Chester!

Nearest possibility I can see is CAERGWRLE in North Wales. This is a hamlet near to Wrexham and close to the England/Wales border - in fact it is 10 miles from Chester. Maybe in England it would be pronounced as Cargurly?

Hi,

Some more food for thought -

1851 census in Flintshire - Hope - District 2d (which covers Caergwrle) -

Mary Ellis, Widow age 65 - Pauper - born Pulford, Cheshire
Catherine daughter age 27 - born Hope
Robert son age 26 - born Hope (occupation is a Labourer)
Mary daughter age 4 - whose daughter is she? - born Wrexham
Robert Davies visitor

Living in Caergwrle.

Worth exploring more?

They are definitely worth exploring, Alan. I will take a look on a bit. I think I need to widen the net on Mary's potential births as well, if nothing else I can eliminate some options. I have ordered John Emmett's will as well, hopefully he really liked his brother in law or father in law and left them something!

I think the burial indexes for the whole of Liverpool are due to go on Ancestry at some point this year, so if nothing else I will have more options to search through.

Lots of co-incidences with that family Alan, so definitely worth chasing them up in other censuses to track their movements :)
