    Default the US consulate

    I have been researching my ancestors and discovered many links with Liverpool which I didn't know.(thought i was a southerner but will have to think again!) anyway... an intriging entry in the 1861 census leads me to believe that one of them was a vice consul in the us consulate in Liverpool. I can only find slight mention of it on google etc and I would be very interested to find out more of its history and my ggg grandfather's involvement.Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Various internet posts quote Nathaniel Hawthorne:

    located in Washington Buildings, (a shabby and smoke‐stained edifice of four stories high, thus illustriously named in honour of our national establishment) at the lower corner of Brunswick St., contiguous to the Goree Arcade, and in the neighbourhood of some of the oldest docks

    This would be the 1850s. A nearby plaque (on a bucket fountain) mentions Hawthorne.
