    Default Mount Vernon Enquiry from a Manc

    I have my Gt Grandfathers school report dated 1883.

    I'm trying to locate the school- (actually the city as they didn't turn up in Manchester until 1891).

    In the report he thanks his parents for sending him to a Catholic school and he writes


    ADVERTISING




    "St Thomas', Mount Vernon " in the upper right of his introductory page.

    If I can find out the location / region then this would be a big help.

    His father's trade was a coach builder on the railways- and when they moved to Manchester- they were never more than 200 yards from the rails.

    Was / Is Mount Vernon an area?- Is there a St Thomas's?

    Appreciate any help

    Hi Nic,
    welcome to Yo! There is certainly an area called Mount Vernon,but I'm not sure about church names? I'll have a look,and get back later,maybe!
