Hello, I sent a letter in the mail asking for Maria McQuade to contact me
via email regarding my search for the marriage of John Mcalinden and his
wife Mary Jane. There was a reference I had sent her from a parish in
Liverpool. I wanted to know what kind of search services she could
provide. Can you ask her if she will contact me. She has no email listed
on the marriage index page.

Thanks,

Blaine Scott

Hi, 

I an inquiring if you in your research have come across an
ancestor of mine:

HAMPSON, William Jerome +1867-08-29
William Hampson was born at Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire, in 1802 and came
to Ampleforth in 1813. He took the habit and the name of Jerome 22 December
1818, and was professed 23 December 1819. He received orders as follows: - Minor
25 January 1819, Subdiaconate 10 June 1822, Diaconate 1 August 1823, Priesthood
1826. On the departure of Prior Burgess & his companions for Prior Park (May,
1830) he took up the Procurator's duties, and for a short while, until the
election of Prior Towers acted as Subprior. 

He passed to the Mission in 1834 and had the following series of
appointments:-
Brandsby 1834-5, Keighley (not a Benedictine mission) 1835-6, Little Crosby
1836, Knaresboro' 1838, Lawkland 1856, Woolton 1862. At this last mission
his health failed and he became an invalid. In the latter half of 1866 he
retired to Ampleforth, where he died in the following year. He was buried in the
hillside cemetery.

It seems he was at Knaresboro' for 18 years. Can you tell me something of
the history of the Catholics in that time.

Kind Regards

Jeff Hampson

 (Australia)

Answer sent on Wednesday 7th September  2005:

Jeff,

I am no expert on Catholic history. I can tell you that Lancashire has always had a very strong Catholic tradition. The little knowledge I have is of the Irish Catholics in Liverpool between 1800-1900. I will add you email to the Hibernia site and if anyone contact me about it, I will forward them to you.

Books that might be of interest:

Catholic Missions in Lancashire (I think) by Michael Gandy
Burkes Catholic History of Liverpool
Sectarian Violence The Liverpool Experience 1819 -1914 by Frank Neal

Plus check out the book list at:

You might be able to order from via your local library.

Many  thanks,

I hope I'm sending this to the correct source. If not, if you have any
idea as to where I can direct it I would appreciate your letting me know.

I have in my possession, through an uncle Arthur Patrick Fagan born 29
July 1898 in Liverpool [now deceased] , a lady's diary that was presented to
Alexvina (?) Leonora Dornford by her father on October 15, 1846.  It
measures about 4.5 x 7.5 inches and the embossed cover [and back cover]
seems to have originally been a dark blue with gilt-edging and the word
"Album" on the spine. It's approximately 3/4 inch thick. Inside, in
addition to mostly religion-themed entries which seem to continue to the late
1870s, there are dried plants/flowers [including "seaweed gathered in Ireland
July 1877"], sketches of a waterfall {Cardiff May  1857?], the "Fall of the
Lyd?",  a beautifully-rendered coloured picture of a house near a river,
another of a different house with what appears to be a castle remain in
the background dated August 1853,  a parrot [including a feather - Leonora's
pet], dated June 1850. 

Other material accompanying the diary include a small "In Memorian" card
which relates to the death of Alexvina Leonora Smart on September 20,
1873. Whether this is the same woman or not, who married someone named Smart,
I can't tell from the jumble of papers and letters. However, another name
which appears in the diary is that of Emily Leonora Smart who, I
believe, was the mother of Arthur Patrick Fagan, and who came to Canada with
Uncle Art in the early 1900s, bringing the diary with her.

Other material is an homage to Mrs. William Smart "of Madeira"
[postcards and other material seem to indicate that part of the family resided
there], who was "a great friend of Sailors" and who was born in Funchal on
February 25, 1843 and who "entered into rest 2nd November 1930."  This was
written by Duncan McIntosh, Chief Steward, S.S. "Monte Videan" 541, New City Road,
Glasgow."

There is also a photograph of a headstone for Edward Rowland Smart who
died January 17, 1923, and a newspaper death notice for a Mr. Patrick Fagan
[Art's father] who died October 4, 1908 [funeral director Mr. W. R.Williams,
25, Great George's Place, and 112 and 114 Smithdown Road, Liverpool. In
addition to wife and son the "chief mourners" were "Mesdames Murray,
Cunningham, Rogers, Barrett, Aldridge [daughters], Messrs. J., A., T.,
T. and H. Fagan [brothers],  Mrs. McLeaney and Mrs. Rooney [sisters],
Messrs. Murray, Rogers, Barret, Aldridge and Cunningham [sons-in-law],  Messrs.
Murray, jun. and Cunningham jun. [grandsons], Miss B. Cunningham
[granddaughter], Messrs. T. Newby, Calange, and J. Fagan [nephews], Mrs.
McKemer, Mrs. Webb and Mrs. McCale [nieces], Miss K. Fagan [cousin].
 
The latest piece of correspondence addressed to Art here in Canada is a
latter dated January 15, 1958 from a Gertie Gillam [a relative by the
tone of the letter] who lived at 55 Monkfield Way, Spike, Liverpool 19.

My purpose in writing is to hopefully locate living relatives of Uncle
Art in Liverpool who may wish to have the diary and accompanying papers,
etc. After seeing TV shows like Antiques Road Show I realize such things may
have some value, although I hasten to say I am seeking neither reward
nor and other sort of financial remuneration. I just would like to see
something so old and clearly treasured in the hands of someone  who would
appreciate its sentimental and historical value. There is also a small book
[needing cover restoration] of Sir Walter Scott's The Lady Of The Lake published
in 1838 by T. Allman, 42, Holborn Hill, London.  It's inscribed Leonora A.
Dornford from her affectionate sister Franny [or Fanny] dated October
15, 1840 . Emily Leonora Smart inserted her name below that in 1873.

I apologize if I have misdirected this inquiry. If so, perhaps you might
give me some idea as to where I might direct it. Thanks

George O'Leary,
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Answer sent Monday 13th June 2005

George,

Thank you for your email. Let me think about what I can suggest you
can do with the treasures that you have.  One thing seems a bit
strange, the address 'Monkfield Way, Spike, Liverpool 19, does not
seem right. As L19 is an area called Garston. In Garston, there is a
street named 'Monkferry Walk'. Not far from Garston is a district call
'Speke'. I know Speke very well as I lived there for many years. I
don't think there is an address in Speke, that sounds like Monkfield,
so I think it should be Monkferry Garston L19.

Regards,
Patrick

Thanks for responding Patrick. And you're no doubt correct. I found it
difficult to decipher the handwriting and that was the way I saw it.
That's  also why I put a ? after the name "Alexvina" The "v" may or may not be, in
 fact, a "v" at all. One is in handwriting, the other [the In Memoriam
card]  is in some fancy script, both hard to determine. Again, thanks for your
efforts.

George

Hi Patrick - further to our previous exchange of correspondence, attached
are some pictures of three pages from the old diary and some of the sketches
that accompany it for your information. The parrot was her pet and there's
an actual feather from it included.

Dear Sir
 
I am trying to trace family who were based in the Liverpool area in the late 1800's.  I know they were Catholics who attended the Sacred Heart Church in Liverpool.    I have two families I would like to trace, McVey and Molloy.  I have some birth details but very few details of their deaths. 
 
I was wandering whether you could tell me what  information you can provide and what details you need from me in order to locate family buried in Liverpool.
 
I look forward to hearing from you.

Answer sent on Thursday 8th September  2005:

Fiona,

I have on microfiche the combined index to FORD, YEW TREE & AINSDALE RC Cemeteries 1859 - 1989 and the plot records. The index contains over 250,000 names, mostly of Irish descent. I am willing to search these records,
I require the following:

  • The full name (ONLY ONE INDIVIDUAL AT A TIME, PLEASE).
  • Cemetery, if known.
  • Approximate date of death/burial.
  • Approximate age or date of birth.
  • If you have an address, that might also be of help.
If I am successful, all I ask is that you send a donation to CAFOD (Catholic Fund for Overseas Development) or any famine relief charity of your choice.

Dear Patrick,

You may be able to help me. My father Joseph Foley had an aunt called
Julia Foley and as a result of a family dispute Julia left Co Waterford
never to return. The last we heard of her was that she was living in
Liverpool.

(MURRAY, JOHN & JULIA FOLEY, St Patrick's, Park Place, L8)

Would it be possible for you to check the records and see if my great
grand father's name appears on any of the relevant marriage certificate?

His name was William Edward Foley and his address would have been either
Co Waterford or Co Kilkenny. They lived on the border of the two
counties.

We have a painting of this lady at home and as a result of this the
family are curious to know what happened to her.

I hope this is not too much of an inconvenience.

Thanks a lot

P.s. I tried to contact Marie but her mail box was full.

Hi I am looking for a Roman Catholic Church in West Derby around 1848. I am searching for the baptismal record of Patrick James Doyle all I know is that he was born in 1848 to Michael and Emily Doyle who came to England from Ireland. Where in Ireland I do not know I am hoping it will tell me on the baptismal record. The family did not stay in Liverpool by 1850 they were in Longton Staffordshire. and by 1861 they lived in Nantwich Cheshire. Hope you can help and advise me where I can get the baptismal record. Do you also know if there are any lists of Irish families who came to England during the famine years?

If you check out the list of Liverpool RC Churches at:

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

You can see when the baptism registers started. Most of the churches outside the city centre and Toxteth were in the district of West Derby. I would need a better address before I could tell you which church to check.

There are over 15 x Andrew Kelly's in the RC burial index, without a date of death it is very time consuming to check through all the different plot records on micro fiche.

Dear Patrick

I realise you are unable to do look-ups between June/September so will not
expect a reply for a little while.

I would be grateful for the details of the marriage of Thomas Bolton Howard
and Margaret Cardwill at St Anthony's who I believe may be my husband's
gg.grandparents.

I came across your site by chance and was delighted to find this marriage
because there are so many Howards in the Liverpool area it is difficult to
verify events or obtain certificates with any confidence that they are the
correct ones. The 'Bolton' middle name is an enormous help on the few
occasions it appears in records but I've yet to discover the background for
its use by this branch of the Howards.

My husband and I grew up in Widnes and I'd love to help with transcribing
etc in the North West which, together with Ireland, is my main area of
interest but we live in the W. MIdlands which makes it well nigh impossible.
I've been transcribing for FreeBMD for about two years but it's all quite
anonymous and impersonal.

Subject: Re: look-up

Patrick,

There are several but the one that's on my mind at the moment is Agnes Spencer born in 1864 in West Derby, daughter of John Spencer and Agnes Marie (Cox). I think I see the family in the 1881 census in Lancashire but the Agnes is widowed and the family history I've heard reported says that it was John who was widowed and who later remarried in the 1880-90's. The Agnes Spencer with a daughter Agnes  in 1881 also had a son James and Agnes had a James Spencer as a witness at her wedding to  Patrick McAlinden in 1889 so the 1891 census she will be listed with Patrick.

If I can find her in the 1871 census with other siblings it should clear up where she is in 1881 - if indeed she is the one with her widowed mother or if she is the Agnes with the Edmund and Mary Spencer  in the 1881 (John and Agnes could have used their second names for that family).  If it appears Agnes had older siblings and Agnes and John were married before 1861 I would also hope to  find out about the family at that time. If time I would also be looking for John Spencer and Agnes Marie Cox in 1851 and 41 if they were alive at those times.

The Spencer's in the 1881 may provide some sort of comparison, this and Agnes birth date in 1864 are all I've got at the moment.

Thanks very much.

Hello Patrick I was at Ford cemetery today and found the graves you kindly
looked up for me. I wonder if you could look the  the following one up,
since being in touch with you  I have learned a lot more than I knew about
my ancestors, thanks to you, but a good way to go yet!
The one I am looking for now is as follows:

John Mullen
Died 01/01/1890
Age about 32
7 Hornby Street

I will continue to give extra donations to CAFOD starting at mass tomorrow Sunday
Thanks again
Marie

Answer sent on Wednesday 14th September  2005:

Marie,

I did not find a JOHN MULLEN in the Liverpool RC Burial Index. But I did find a JOHN MULLIN

Ford Cemetery:
Section: SV
Public Plot: 2866

John Mullin
7 Hornby Street
Age: 32
Interred: 5/1/1890

With it being a Public Plot (Pauper Grave), there will be no marker.

Thanks for seeking word of Agnes Spencer's marriage Patrick.
I do know when she married.

I don't have my record of request to you to see what records you can search.
Do you check census files?
In any event, could you tell me what areas you can check in and I will send what ancestors I'm seeking that might be in those records. Sorry for the extra trouble identifying what you can look up.

Sincerely,

Blaine,

I sometimes do checks in the Index to the 1851 Census of Liverpool, when I'm not busy, but I'm busy most of the time...

I do a cemetery search service in the Liverpool RC Burial Index, which covers Ford, Yew Tree and Ainsdale Cemeteries (1859 -1989), see:

Cemetery Search Service, Ford, Yew Tree & Ainsdale (over 250,000 names)

I also do a Liverpool RC marriage search service, see:

Liverpool Area RC Marriage Index (over 64,000 names) 1800-1900 approx.

&

Thanks Patrick

I have come across multiple spellings for every thing I have searched, so
you do have the right one. I have another one here that you could possibly
help me with, when you have time, it is Daniel Mc Gookin I have got three
spellings for this one, the other two are  Mc Gukian and Mc Googan

The info. I have:
Daniel Mc Gookin
Died April to June 1920 
Age 38. 
I have not got an address but it could  have been Shadwell Street or Athol Street.

Thanks for all your help Patrick, I promise to keep the donations flowing.

Subject: Ro(d)ger Grady

Dear Pat,

I am searching for the date and place of death of a Ro(d)ger Grady, who I believe died
in Liverpool. He was born in the townland of Tobracken, Ballaghaderreen, Co. Mayo,
Ireland and baptised on 3 December 1858 in St. Nathy's Cathedral, Ballaghaderreen. His
father was John Grady and his mother was Catherine Do(g)herty.

Roger Grady married Ellen Horan on 15  February 1906 in Kilmovee, Co. Mayo. But just
after the wedding he was institutionalised for about 7 years in a Mental Hospital in
Castelbar, Co. Mayo. He was taken out of the Hospital in 1913 by his first cousin
Joseph Grady, who was living in Liverpool. This Joseph Grady was born abt. 1856 in the
townland of Tonragee, Ballaghaderreen.

Yours sincerely,

Charles Grady.

And buried a few days later at Yew Tree

 

Age uncertain but he joined the brigade in 1919 and would have been about 21 years old then, so about 42 on his death. Any help would be appreciated, we would like to photograph the grave if we can find it

If you have any problems finding the plot, let me know and I will get my son (Jonathan) to find it and take a picture of any headstone found.

I run another web site (liverpoolmonuments.co.uk ), because of running this, I have heard that a guy called Gabriel Muise is trying to get a Memorial Garden sited in Canning Place, Liverpool. The main purpose of this is a memorial to Joseph Williamson. Also in the Garden, he wants to have memorials to the Firemen & Policemen of Liverpool & Bootle who have lost their lives while carrying out their duty. I will let you know if he gets anywhere with his plans.

I think I would also like to have section on the Liverpool Monuments web site dedicated to the Firemen of Liverpool & Bootle. Do you have any pictures that I could use or can you suggest any Firemen Memorials that my son could photograph?

Patrick

    I am looking for the marriage of a Patrick Ryan to Ann ? I have found four possible marriages in your index, but have no way of knowing which is the right one. Our Patrick Ryan was a Shoemaker, and according to the 1871 Census, his eldest child was born circa 1859 in Liverpool, so I'm assuming that the marriage took place prior to this.

 
If you could give me the dates of the four marriages, we will look them up at the Record Office the next time we are there.
 
THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS :-
 
Patrick Ryan to Ann Casey                   St Patrick's
Patrick Ryan to Ann Finnerty                St Patrick's
Patrick Ryan to Ann Connerly               Our Lady of Reconciliation

I wonder if you can help me with this one? do you know if people could be
buried or commemorated inside St Peter and Paul's church, Crosby. I am
looking for a possible ancestor Henry Green of Crosby. He died in 1857 and
is buried in the St Peter and Paul. I cannot find a gravestone, but feel
sure that he will have a mention somewhere as in his will he left money to
the church and the priest at that time, Reverend Fisher was the executor to
the will.

I have visited the church twice, but it is always closed. Any suggestions
would be welcome.
