Mandy

Thanks, Mandy.
I've got 1936, which will probably be very similar to 1938.

On a similar subject, I've got a huge collection of photocopies of maps, and can do requests.

Hi Jacky
I'm sorry I should have explained what they are.:)

A street directory is similar to a modern phone book ,it usually lists the main house holder, their occupation address & phone number if they have one

I can search by address or name

not all addresses are listed & I have only found one of my relatives :PDT_Xtremez_12: court properties seem to have been ommitted
but they are useful for checking where a family was after the 1901 census

Hi Phil where do you get the 36 and 69 directorys from?
Mike

I got both of mine through acquaintances.
Mandy can say where she got hers from.
I think they're on CD's.
Keep asking in second-hand bookshops, but expect to pay anything up to £75 for Victorian ones. (I see you're in Australia, but this advice is aimed for everybody).
Not that I know anything about eBay, but I suppose that will be the main source these days, but with the paper being very fragile, I wouldn't like to buy one by post (and they're so heavy, the postage must be costly).

1936. John William Reid was at 29 Irving Street.
There were no Hindle's in Litherland

Irving Street is not listed in 1968, and doesn't exist now.
It was close to Seaforth & Litherland Station.

Yes:
Williams Mrs. Sarah Eliz. statnr
Town Sub-Post, Money Order & Telephone Call Office

Many thanks Philip. In 1938 it's Mrs Eliz. Williams - presumably the same person as the one you found in 1936. Yet the contemporary phone books show S.E. Jones as the subscriber for that business throughout that period. Strange.

The Samuel Ernest Jones that I am interested in lived round the corner from Myers Road East at 24 Caithness Drive. He is listed there in Kelly's 1938 and described as a sales manager. Interestingly the phonebook listing for that address from 1937 to 1950 is in the name of his son who was just 21 in 1937.

PhilipG
07-23-2007, 01:42 PM
I suspect phone books weren't as up to date as directories, or amended as often.
(Where are these phone boooks, BTW?).

21 of course, was the age of majority.

In 1936, 22 Caithness Drive is listed, after which "Westland" has no number.
It was occupied by Robinson Wm. who. fruitr.

ShaunJ

(Where are these phone boooks, BTW?).




Thanks again Philip for the 1936 info. To answer your question I am accessing phone book images 1880-1984 via my Ancestry.co.uk subscription. It's a fantastic resource but searching for Joneses isn't terribly easy!

Philip ...

Anything from 1881 onwards I guess, as I have no idea how long the family remained in the Liverpool area but know George Haycock was aboard HMS Carysfort during the 1881 census taking.

He married Frances Prince in 1888 in L'pool, so must have moved there between 1881-1888.

Anything you can dig up will be very much appreciated!

PhilipG
09-10-2007, 12:05 AM
Hello Scruffy.

1936 is the earliest directory I have and 86 Brisbane Street was occupied by John Farrell.

Haycock:
George. 3 Browning Road, Wallasey.
George. 86 Blythswood Street, L17.
John Albert. 19 Peel Street.
John William. 107 Ritson Street, L8.
Joseph P. 40 Sandstone Road, Old Swan.

There are also Haycocks.

Scruffy
09-11-2007, 05:33 AM
Hi Philip.

I'm sure some of these Haycocks are relatives, but as I don't have the exact names of George's children, I can't figure out which ones :disgust:

Anyway, thanks for looking into this for me, I appreciate it!

I'm sorry Walgrave Street isn't listed so I checked for Alec Webster but he isn't listed either

Thought you'd like to know that the 1936 directory shows Alex Webster, tramway inspector, at 189 Waldgrave Road.

The Record Office have Electoral Registers.
Everybody over voting age should be listed for the address.
They also have all the street directories, so you can find out how long they were at any address.
BTW. It's Waldgrave Road, not Street.

Hi. Could you look up 1. Edge Hill West Derby for me. I have a census entry for 1851 but they may have been there later. My relative is John JAckson shown as a Beer House Keeper. Is this address a pub?
Thanks. Lis

Welcome to the forum Joe. If you live in Liverpool, you can access all the street directories up to about 1970 at the Liverpool Record Office on the 4th floor of Central Library, William Brown Street. They also have the electoral rolls listing those of voting age who live in a given street each year.

Hi Joe
no_one called Alf but that may have just been a name he was known as. (my gtgrandpa was called Abraham, but everyone knew him as Jack). So I've copied down the 1966 list as that was the only one available at the time. LRO was quite busy today. Maybe you'll recognise the surname.

Odds first...these are as in the book...Where numbers are missing they'll either be vacant houses or were possibly bombed during the war...in caps so they are clear to read....

you're very welcome. always happy to help if I'm able.
I'm with those 2 sites too. My distant cousin in Wales got in touch through Genes, so I was able to find out about my Welsh ancestry there. :034:

I have a break every now and again when I hit mini brick walls. I've just found out my gtgrandad was married twice so have been going through relations I didn't know I had. fascinating stuff.

my Nan is 92 and she's finding it all very interesting. Just wish my dad had lived long enough. he got me into genealogy and he'd have loved to go through the info available these days.

For 1911 and 1938, I am looking for a reference to James Teese and also John King and a furniture shop/manufacturers by the name of King. I would think the shop would definitely be listed.

Hi Mandy,
could I ask what the condition is? It's just that I know of a couple of babies,who seem to have a similar chest/respiritory symptoms! Liverpool has one of,if not the highest incidence, of asthmatic type cases,in young children,but nobody seems to know why?

Does anyone know how to trace Music Hall Artistes and Agents from early 1900s in Liverpool?
I am googled to frustration.
I have 2 Fredericks, going by 2 surnames of Fellows AND Poole (depending on which census you look at). I'm thinking that Poole may have been a stage name. In 1901 they are both listed as "music hall artistes", but from 1908 they seemed to be either Music Hall Agents, artistes or Licenced victualers. There is a reference to one being a comedian and also family stories of dog performing.
They were living at 67 Rokeby St, Everton and then moved to 33 Rupert Hill.
I'm hoping someone may know something I don't, or at least steer me in the right direction.
Thanks

Frederick Fellows Poole, Licenced victualler, 9 Goree Piazzas (this is Fred Jnr)

and

Frederick Fellows Poole, Holdsworth Ernest & Co Commission Agents, 23 Washington Buildings Lower Castle st (this is Fred Snr)

Does anybody know if either of these chaps or businesses are listed anywhere else?
Did the Holdsworth Ernest Company exist prior and was it owned by somebody else? The name does not seem familiar in any way.
What is a Commission Agent? Both Freds were either in the pub or music hall business.

Any help most welcome.
Thank you

Hi Norm, one of my ancestors was a shipping commission agent in the 19th century. I think he was probably a shipping agent or worked for one.

I have just googled the following,

The description is failry broad but they acted as agents for other parties in this way.

If Mr A was in London but wanted to import tea, for instance, in Bristol he would want his interests looked after and would employ an agent to do this for him locally in return for a fee or commission. In this way he did not need to be in Bristol but was not at the mercy of local dock workers and shipping agents who might rip him off.

The term applied to all kinds of work, not just shipping, but was simply the employment of a local agent to look after your interests.

Hi Mandy, I am a newbie and hope that this is the right place. I am looking for my paternal grandparents and beyond. Their name was Murphy.
My father, William Murphy, was born at 29 Spurgeon Street and he had 4 siblings;Letitia, Lesley,John and Frederick
My grandfather was also William Murphy (married an Elizabeth Hamilton) and it is thought he was born in Limerick.
My great grandfather was also called William and it is thought he worked as a builder and had some connection with George Henry Lee's(possibly helped to build it?).It is thought he may have been from Wallasey.

Grandfather William dies in 1935 and was then living at 35 Knocklaid Road/Street. Had served in WW1 in Kings Liverpool Irish and may well have been invalided out.

I have no further information on residences I' afraid. at this stage any help is most welcome. Merry Christmas, PPym

Hello.
I live in Canada, so research is remote and difficult. I am researching my Great Grandparents, Edward William Becker and Sophia Caroline Becker.. There name was Becker when they arrived in Liverpoo(pre 1878)l. They changed their name to Baker pre 1901. They lived
Becker 1881 Toxteth Park
Becker 1891 9 Stopford Street Toxteh Park
Baker 1901 Toxteth
Baker 1911 46 Isaac Street Liverpool S

All these were taken from Census. Their children were on their own by 1911. Trying to find children around 1911. Unsure of first names. Would this be too large of a task to look up?

Has anyone come across a John Grogan Murphy shown on his son's marriage cert as living at 1 Bright Street, Everton in December 1917? Attempts to track him down have so far drawn a blank. Thanks, ppym


He's listed at 1 Bright Street in the 1911 directory.

I wonder if you could have a look at Edinburgh Road, L`pool 7 in the 1938 directory - we lived in 56, opposite was an Italian lady I used to visit as a toddler. Not sure if the odd numbers were directly across from the evens - maybe checking on the odds from say 47 to 65 would cover the possibilities - anyone in those with an Italian name, please? ( I used to call her `Mrs.Afternoon`, I think that was the closest I could get to her name!) Many thanks.

Could someone check 35 collins street for a lopano murphy and see where she was born pse?
She appears in the 1881 census with a shoemaker husband called William and the other occpnts being Margaret (19) and John(3). I am wondering if the boy's age is 3mths rather than 3yrs for reasons outlined below.
In the 1871 census William appears with a wife called Joanna(who appears to have died in 1881 and a son John aged 7ys(who is poss. the one who died in1880 aged 17) and a dau.Margaret aged 9yrs. Then shown as living at a 52 ?Toxteh Park
So far I have drawn a blank.
Am I dealing with 2 families or 1? Lopana's place of birth and maiden name would help. Can anyone assist me in solving this conundrum pse? Regards, Pauline

Thank you for the info - perhaps the family moved in soon after, or maybe the lady was a relation/in-law of the householder - I suppose I`ll never know now...

Hi, I am new to researching Liverpool ancestors, my family come from the Sussex area, but now I am trying to trace my husbands family. His gg-grandfather John O'Brien originally came from Ireland to Liverpool sometime between his birth in abt 1821 and the birth of his son Daniel in abt 1850 John's wife Margaret was also born in Ireland and I don't know if they married in Ireland or Liverpool.

The only information I have on John is from the 1861 census when the family lived in 69, Blenheim Street and his occupation is joiner. I know the family were catholic and that some of his grandchildren were baptised in St Joseph's RC church.

I am hoping that maybe you would check your directories for me and see if you have any entries for him - it has been suggested he came from County Mayo but I need some more information to pursue that.

Basically I would appreciate any help with this brick wall. Thanks Cathy.

The only information I have on John is from the 1861 census when the family lived in 69, Blenheim Street and his occupation was joiner. In this census they have 3 other children
Thomas age 5 born in Liverpool Lancashire, Margaret age 3 born in Liverpool Lancashire
and John age 1 born in Liverpool Lancashire

I know the family were catholic and that some of his son Thomas' children were baptised in St Joseph's RC church Liverpool.

I am hoping that maybe you would check your directories for me and see if you have any entries for him - it has been suggested he came from County Mayo but I need some more information to pursue that. If you have any other ideas of places I can look I would appreciate it - I have found the Liverpool history project which gave some great information on baptisms of some of his grandchildren but the coverage doesn't help with John.

Basically I would appreciate any help with this brick wall. Thanks Cathy.

Hi

Frank Young was my wife's father. He was born in West Derby and trained / worked at the Liverpool Echo as a compositer. We strongly believe from birth records that he had a sister Alice born 1916. I suspect that the father was called up in 1916 (when conscription was announced) and sometime thereafter the family moved to a different part of Liverpool as no other births for the Young /Bell partnership can be found for West Derby. During the 1939-45 war, Frank was stationed in Cornwall and also spent time in North Africa. After the war Frank married and settled in Liskeard Cornwall. Frank was very relunctant to talk about his Liverpool past and did not go back or write.
I have traced the father on the 1901 and 1911 census. We would like to know very much about Alice or any other siblings of Frank

Many - would you be able to lookup 60 Lower Harrington Street, Toxteth for 1860? I'm looking for a Kennedy family running a marine store and would be interest to know whether the Harrington Street address was the business or the home address.

Hi there, I'm interested in locating my grandfather who lived in Liverpool in the 1930's. His name was Harry Douglas Cooper (he may have gone by Henry too). He was an accountant I believe.

Thanks,

Hi Mandy,

Thanks.

You can access a number of directories free if you search the Internet or if you go to your local library they have free access to the world version of Ancestry which has a number of Liverpool directories.
