    Thanks to everyone who has read my threads. I'm thrilled to say, I've found the family after many years of searching. Lind

    Hi Lind, went went to Garston C E in the 1950s ,and their was a Marilyn Molyneux in my class. The family lived in Seddon road Garston,they may have been been living in the Dingle at one time, as one of Marilyns friends was called Norma Cambell and she was from the Dingle, Beresford Road I think.
    Hope this is of some help to you.

    Hi Jimmy. Thank you very much for replying. All leads are so helpful. The family may well have moved and now I've something else to work on. Thanks again.

    Default Wellington Road, The Dingle.

    Many thanks to everyone who has looked at my message. Despite a lot of searching, I'm sadly nowhere nearer finding the family I'd love to meet. I'm wondering with the passing years if the information I've been given isn't 100%accurate. But it seems definite that the family lived in Wellington Road. If anyone has family members who lived in Wellington Road or Greave Street in the 1940/1950s, or went to school or worked with them, I'd love to hear from you. I didn't realise they'd be so many Molyneux families in Liverpool! But one of these families has to have a connection.

    Thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to look. It is very much appreciated. Lind.

    Default Kirkby

    Hello Linda, I have a freind called Molyneux who lives in Kirkby (just outside Liverpool) I have no idea about his family but will ask him and get back to you. By the way there is also a pub in Kirky called The Molyneux dont know if that has any signifisence but just thought I would mention it.

    Hi Linda

    Good luck to you in your enquiries. I knew a Molyneux family that lived in Wallasey in the Sixties and that were in-laws of my family. Although I have heard that the male line has since died out, there is a daughter who is still alive with a married name other than Molyneux. She may know something that could help you. I will try to get a message to her.

    All the best

    Default Molyneux family

    Hello Mike and Chris. Thank you for your messages and your offers to make enquiries. It's kind of you to take the time to try and help. As the brothers and sisters would be in their 80s/90s now, I could well be looking for their children. Thanks again. Best wishes, Lind.

    Have just found this thread !....we sold a house to a John Molyneux in 1970 he was moving from just across the Park (Dingle Park) in the street that ran next to the Turner Home (I cant remember the name, but if I hear the name I would know it). John was in his 20,s married but I cant remember any children !.The house he bought from my family was 119 Rosslyn Street, Aigburth. Hope this is of some use to you.

    Hi Sqiggs ,
    Small world ,
    The John Molyneux you mention is married to Lynn , they are friends of mine ,
    I started helping Linda out with the Molyneux search , but my dad became very ill & has since passed away ( last week )
    We have almost ruled out "John's " dad being the Molyneux in question his family worked on the Mersey Tunnel ( tarmac)
    but any info is appreciated .

    Karen

    Hi Karen,
    my condolences on the loss of your Dad !, John and his wife where " a lovely young couple" according to my Mum and Dad and that is why they sold their house to them.
    Good luck in the future.

    Thank you so much
    A month tomorrow & his death hasn't really hit me yet , i've had so much to do
    all the sorting out has kept me pre occupied , but i will miss him more than anyone will ever know .

    John & Lynn are such a lovely couple i only wish that he was the Molyneux connected to Linda's family , as he'd welcome her with open arms .

    Going through my dads things i've found some interesting items ,
    do any of you know of an " Ashley " family lived in Myrtle gardens ?
    I'll add a seperate post so as not to take over this one .

    luv to you all
    Karen xx

    Default Molyneux family, Liverpool.

    Hello Karen, Squiggs and Ged. Many apologies for not replying to your posts. I haven't been on the site for a while. But I'm back again now.

    Karen, I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. When we last made contact you were caring for him while he was so poorly. My thoughts are with you.
    You were going through such a difficult time, yet you were still willing to help others. I'm sending you a huge hug.

    Hi Squiggs and Ged. Thanks for your messages. I was full of hope when Karen contacted John for me. Sadly, he wasn't part of my long lost family. But for a short while I was full of hope and so excited. But this Molyneux family has to be somewhere in the Liverpool area. I can't believe just how many Molyneux families there are!

    Thanks to everyone for leaving messages. Especially Karen, who has gone out of her way to help as much as she can.

    Lind

    I've just read through the thread, because I know a Molyneux family - John and Lynn - who are a lovely couple. I work with Lynn. What a shame they're not part of the family you're looking for.

    I wouldn't be able to trace my family roots anyway on my dads side. My dad claimed Normandy roots once but i think he's BS'ing because he read of vikings there and because the odd one on my dads side are tall and built big.

    I don't know any of my family except my sister, brother and parents obviously and havent met any cousins for years either and i wan't bothered about any of them. Some of them married anyway and became Hughes, only ones with my surname i met i think was my uncle Billy, most of my Molyneux relatives died before i was born.

    I don't think my dads side would know of any of my roots anyway. My mums name was Dugan or however it's spelt so maybe i have Irish too but she was brought up in a home so i know none of her side.

    Maybe i should marry a Japanese woman one day like Lennon(except there alot hotter than Yoko usually) and have some kids with Liverpool and Japanese roots. They'd probably call Liverpool "Riverpoo" though since they have problems pronouncing the L's though.

    Oh yeah, despite there being many Molyneux's in Liverpool, i encounter alot of people who can't pronounce Molyneux right. They say it like "Molyno", "Molynaux" or Molynuex".

    Hello Max

    Isn't it pronounced Molly-New? Doesn't the name derive from the French word for mill, "Moulin"?
