Subject: Great grandparents

I wonder if you may be able to help me.

I was born in Kensington, in 1955. We moved to the Wirral in 1963, and I left there in 1974.

Iíve been researching my family history for the past year, but have come to an impasse.

The first record of my great grandparents in Liverpool is in 1908, at 138 Athol Street. Their surname at this time is Hansheldt, and they are recorded as grocers; their country of origin was Holland.

I know that they had at least one son, Thomas, who married my grandmother, Margaret (nee Bolger, of Flinders Street) in 1923. Thomas died in about 1943, and Margaret went on to run many pubs in Liverpool, including the Central Hotel.

My great grandparents changed their surname to Henshaw during the First World War, when the locals misinterpreted their Dutch surname for German.

Is there any way I could find out if my grandfather had any brothers or sisters?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Patrick,
In the R.C. Church Our Lady of Reconciliation
were 1st Communion and Confirmations records kept?

My father was born: October 19, 1899 (not sure if he was baptised
there, never looked.)

John Joseph Stewart, born to Mary Ellen Magee/McGee and David Ogilvy

Any records existing for these religious occasions?

Hello,

I hope you can help. I have for ages tried to find which part of Ireland our
family comes from, but with no luck. My mother's side seem to be very
elusive! I have finally found a wedding certificate for John Downey and Mary
Ann Kearns
that took place on the twenty third of October 1867. Both Mary
and John were born in Ireland and although it states both their fathers
names, all other avenues have drawn a blank.

I stumbled across you web site, which has given a little bit of hope. I
would be grateful if you could provide me with any further information. We
are trying to get the information for my mum's 60th birthday to enable us to
do a 'This is your ancestors' type of 'This is your life'. Her wish has
always been to track down the area in Ireland that we originate from, so you
can imagine how frustrating it has been.

I do hope you can help.

I was hoping that you might be able to give me some advice I am looking for the baptism of Andrew Thomas Smith c1855 parents Owen Smith and Rose. Owen was a tinsmith and in 1861 he was living in Thirlow Street in the St. Anne's district of Liverpool. Which church would be the best place to start a search? I have been unable to trace the birth certificate for Andrew and I suspect it may not have been registered. According to the census information Andrew was born in Liverpool but his parents Owen and Rose were from Ireland

I would be grateful for any help or advice, a point in the right direction

Thank you in anticipation

Susan Brugnoli

Answer sent Tuesday 14th August 2007

Hi Susan,

I could not find Thirlow Street in the Liverpool A-Z. I suspect it may have been close to the Old Swan area of Liverpool in which case the best church to start your search would be St Oswald's, Old Swan.

The Baptism registers for St Oswald's are held at the Liverpool Record Office (LVRO):

Hi Patrick,

Thank very much for your efforts in locating my Fathers plot. I have made an on-line donation as requested, see below for receipt.

I also wondered if you could find out any information on my late brother, Patrick Lundon. He was killed by a coal lorry in Victoria Square off Scotland Road. We believe that he was two and a half when he died sometime between 1952 and 1954. Our parentís names were James and Annie Lundon of 203 Victoria Square.

Unfortunately we cannot find any more details and have been unable to get back to the UK to do any sort of search ourselves.

Thanks again for your help,

Cathy Nicholson

Hi Patrick.
Hope you can help me. I am trying to find out were the following children were buried:


James Matthews, died November 1877 Liverpool, aged 18 months.

David Matthews, died April 1879 Liverpool, aged 13 months.

Catherine Matthews, died about 1873-1875 Liverpool, aged about 13 or 18 months.

All of the children were Catholics so I guess it might be Ford or Yew Tree.

And possibly the last member of the family to be laid to rest was my aunt. Her name was Patricia Hodgson. She died in 1968. Her age was between 40-45. Her parents name (my grandparents) were Robert & Catherine (nee Kehoe) Hodgson. I'm sorry if I sound a bit vague, but my father came to Australia in 1950.

Hi Pat - I had emailed you some time ago regarding the possibility of finding the interments of Anna BUKOWSKY and/or her sibling twins Maria & Andrew. You found Anna for me in Public section X, plot 300, June 21,1904. Today, I received word that Maria is in Section X, plot 307, June 28, 1904. Her surname was misspelled as Bakarsky. Her death certificate say Bokasky. I don't know, if you like to cross reference, people or double check the "errors", but I thought I'd let you know, just in case.

Little Andrew turned up in Anfield Cemetery. Section RC7, plot 1101 August 19, 1904. His name there is Bogasby. Their ages and parents' names are correct, so I know I have the correct children cross referenced from the workhouse. One entry there has them as Bokovskay (which is actually the way it's pronounced.) No wonder they are so hard to trace.

Please, keep up the good work and God Bless!

Hello Pat

I am searching for the death of Patrick Stafford shown as born about
1825 and recorded in the 1881 census as a widower living at 4 Soho
Square, Liverpool together with sons Patrick and William. He does not
appear in the 1891 census. His son Patrick married in May 1891 and his
father is recorded as being deceased. I have been unable to find
Patrick senior in the death indexes. There is a Patrick Stafford who
died in 1883 but he is not mine and the informant is Catherine his
wife. The wife of my Patrick (also Catherine) died in 1878 in Soho
Square. This information is pretty sparse and I have no idea where
Patrick was buried. If it poses too much of a problem for you please
let me know. I do not expect you to spend a lot of time searching with
so little information. Any advice that you could give me would be
gratefully received.

Regards, Bill Spears

Answer sent Friday 17th August 2007

Hello Bill,

There are 8 X Patrick Stafford's in the Liverpool RC Burial Index, but none were interred between 1881 & 1891.

I' suspect St Francis Xavier's and St Anthony's were the closest RC churches to Soho Square, but the burial service register for SFX did not start until 1891, see:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hibernia/records/rchurchrec.html

If you can get to the Liverpool Record Office, it might be worth going through the burial service register for St Anthony's and the Trade/Street Directories between 1881 & 1891.

The records for the church are held at the Liverpool Record Office:

hi Patrick,

I finally got to Ford Cemetery yesterday, and went to the AH section to visit the Monaghan grave, but without success. Just wondered, I don't suppose your records say whether a grave has a stone or not? - or, alternatively, if there is a more detailed map of the cemetery that shows plot numbers - in this case 762. I'd say about 90% of the graves had stones - and of course there's always the chance we managed to miss it...!

There are no detailed maps that I am aware of. If you go to the cemetery during the week, I'm sure the grave diggers could locate the grave. Or I could ask my son to check the next time he goes to Ford Cemetery.

Hello Pat, I am trying to locate the grave of my grandfather John Taylor.
He died and was buried in the family grave in Ford Cemetery in 1950?
His wife my grandmother was also interred in this same grave many years before his death, her name was Ellen Taylor. He was a retired dock worker and at the time of his death he lived at 96 Carr Lane East, Liverpool 11.
I don't know his age when he died or her's. I believe there may be another family member in this same grave her name was Nelly (Probably Ellen too). And she was quite young when she died.
They at one time lived in Luton St. Kirkdale. Liverpool many years before his death.
As I now live in Canada it is not possible for me to search the cemetery to see if I can find their grave.
Any help you can let me have I would be most appreciative of.
I hope to be in Liverpool later in 2007 for a very short visit.
