Hi,

I am researching a branch of my family who lived in the Liverpool area in the 1830s to 1860s and wondered if you knew if any records still survived of sailors/mariners whose home port was Liverpool and if so where I might find them. The kind of thing I think I am talking about are the papers they produced when they signed on, but as I don't know a great deal about this subject I am guessing.

With kind regards

Sandra Jenkinson

Hello,

I've tried to find family graves at Ford RC Cemetery, in SJ and SV areas as indicated on plot maps of the cemetery it's self. However these whole plots are now missing, Together with headstones, and these areas are indicated on the Maps on your web site.

Do you know what happened, and why there is just empty spaces?

Thank you in advance for your help

Dear Scottie Press
We are here at the other end of the world, trying to research an ancestor Peter Ashcroft from Billinge, he was Major Commandant of the Prescot Independent Volunteers in 1798, and early in the 1800s he moved to Liverpool.
We have not been able to trace him in Liverpool, and the Prescot Independent Volunteers seem to be invisible.
Any hints or help would be appreciated

Hi Patrick

Can you please do a look up of a grave in your own time. The grave is my great grandmother Bridget Manley who died in 1881 approx 42 years old and I assume is buried in Ford Cemetery as she was a catholic she was the daughter of James and Julia Walsh, she was the wife of Owen Manley but I don't think he was buried with her as he remarried again in 1884 to Elizabeth Corrigan. On the 1881 census the Manley family lived in 55 Henry Edward street 2 in court 17 their children were Patrick Catherine, Michael, Mary, Julia, James, Bridget, Anne and Thomas

Patrick this is only one of my relatives, if you are successful I will give my donation to Cafod

Hi,

I was looking for a marriage between Mary Leather and James Tipping which I think I might have found from browsing the RC pages. The code for the marriage was PET, and I would expect the marriage to have taken place around 1838-1839. I would be grateful if you could provide further information on this marriage if possible.

I also noticed a marriage between Isaac Leather and Sarah Worral, the code being PAT. I was also wondering if I could get info on that as well, as Isaac may well be Mary's son, and therefore might offer further clues.

subject Marriage at Our Lady of Reconciliation, Liverpool.

Hi Pat,
I've been trying to get information on my Father's family. My great grandparents arrived in Liverpool from Ireland in the 19th century. I am unsure where and when they were married, but I notice a couple with the same names (Michael Clarke and Mary Murphy) on the list of RC marriages in Liverpool. The church was: Our Lady of Reconciliation, Eldon Street.

I would be greatly obliged for any information you can provide me with. I would imagine the marriage would have taken place between the late 1850's and late 1860's.

I will gladly send a donation to CAFOD.

Thanking you in anticipation. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, I have just visited your Liverpool genealogy site and found, after much searching elsewhere, marriage details for Jacobum (James) Deegan and Juliam (Julia) Dunn in the Our Lady of Reconciliation records for 3 February 1856 until 2 October 1895. I understand you can give me further information and may be able to tell me where in Ireland they came from. I look forward to hearing from you and promise faithfully to make a suitable donation to a Famine Relief charity. I think the site itself is very helpful and informative and was especially interested in the details/photographs of the church itself.

Dear Patrick
I wonder if you would be kind enough to direct me to someone who could find any more information on one of my early ancestors? My G.G.Uncle Peter Shandley, born 8 June 1831, was Christened 12 June 1831 in Your Church. I do not think that this was a random Christening, but believe His brother Christopher, born 1829 was also Christened there. I suspect that two further Shandley's were also Christened in this Church. Your guidance would be most appreciated.

If this part of the puzzle is solved we can move on.

We can not trace a birth for my G grandad or anything of him in the census. The only one we pick up refers

subject Irish immigrants arriving in Liverpool

Hi Pat,

I have emailed you before and you have been a great help. I haven touched my tree for a while now and I'm looking to start it back up again. I need to try and find out where my ancestors came from in Ireland when they arrived in Liverpool from Ireland ( between 1845/1850). If there is a record of them arriving in Liverpool then this may help or give me some indication on where in Ireland they come from. Is there any dept or office in Liverpool which may hold records of all people coming into the city and where they have come from?

I have hit a brick wall in trying to find out the locations in Ireland from where my family come from. All that is on the census is Ireland, this is on the 1851 census.

Any ideas ?

Many Thanks

As Ireland was part of Britain in the 1800's, there was free movement between Ireland and  England, so no records exist.

Can You Point Me In The Right Direction?

Hello Pat,

I am looking for a possible marriage for Michael Walsh and Jemima/Jamima
Dawson
. They had at least one child baptized at St. Patrick's on 6 Jan
1855 (dau. Ann Elizabeth Walsh - my husband's great grandmother). So I
wonder if they had other children baptized and if they were married there?

Thanks for checking,

subject Liverpool Area R.C. Marriage Indexes

Dear Pat
Your email address has been given to me by a family member in New Zealand who is researching our Tobin family with me. Her name is Shirley, email address: gagdetnana

My grandfather was a Michael Tobin, married in St Austin's R.C. Church, Grassendale, Liverpool, to Bridget Drury in 1870. They went from Liverpool to Orange, New Jersey, USA, went back to Liverpool in about 1874, then emigrated to NZ, arriving in Auckland in December 1876 with 3 children. They had 10 children in NZ, my mother being the youngest of them, born in 1894.

I have the "Liverpool Area R.C. Marriage Index" for Tobin's. What I would also like to obtain is a list for members of the Concannon family, also the Burke family - is there any chance that you could help me with providing those lists please? Or can you advise me how I would access the Marriage Indexes generally?

One more question, is there a key to the abbreviations for the churches in the Index? The only one I am sure of is "Aus" for St Austin's where my grandparents were married and two of their children were baptised.

I would appreciate any information and guidance you can give me.

Kind regards

FAO Pat Neill.

My mum & dad (Tommy & Rose) recognised your name from Clann meetings some time ago. I've been having a look on the internet trying to help them with our tree.

Here's a copy of what I recently posted on genforum.genealogy.com

"I'm helping my parents work through our family tree.

My great-grandad Edward "Ned" Kavanagh was born in Worthington Street off Stanhope Street in 1877.

Ned married Bridget Brannen in at St Patrick's Chapel in 1898, moving a few streets up the other side of Stanhope to Brassey Street.

Ned's parents were Patrick and Ellen (nee Power). We're interested in finding out exactly where they were from and when they came over to Liverpool and would appreciate anybody getting in touch with any information.

My mum & dad have various birth, death and marriage certificates from Ned onwards and would be happy to provide details from these to help anybody else with their own searches."

I appreciate you wouldn't know anything about our line but I would be grateful for any advice or hints you can give.

Given the history of the Irish in Liverpool its a shame that its not more widely celebrated or indeed known about than it already is!

Thanks for any time you can spend helping

I recommend that you check through the Marriage and Baptism Registers at the Liverpool Record Office. You may find Kavanagh's that give an address in Ireland... I suspect they will be from Co Wexford, so you need to find out the father's names of: KAVANAGH, PATRICIUM & ELLENAM POWER and see if you can find them in the Griffith Valuation.

Dear Patrick,
I just wanted to say how pretty I think the pictures are on your website of this Catholic Church. I am not Catholic however I have be doing research on my family and months ago my aunt showed us some papers from her parents and their parents. Among these papers is a Certificate of Baptism of my great Grandpa his name was James McCann which was done in this church. This baptism took place in the late 1800's. Do you know if there is any chance if this church would have records on my great grandpa's brother's if they were baptized there too ? If so do you know what the best or easiest way would be to find out ? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Dear Patrick can you please help me.  I am trying to trace my fathers roots all I have is his baptism certificate. This says he was baptised on the 13th of Feb 1906 at St Patrick's his birth date was the 9th of Feb 1906. His name was John Jones his father was Thomas Jones and his mother was Alice Kavanagh. The name of the priest was father William Barnes.

Shortly after the baptism, I am told Thomas died at sea and then Alice also died my father was placed in an orphanage.
My father never spoke of this but I am sure it affected him deeply.

Could you please shed some light on what happened to my grandparents and my fathers early life. Or point me in the right direction on where to look. The name of a ship has been mentioned this was the Pengwern which was sunk in 1907 with all hands lost, one of the crew members was a Thomas Jones but was this him?
