    Default Rokeby Street, Everton

    Just found my Grandad's 1898 birth certificate. Never realised my Irish (Waterford City) Great Grandad and Great Grandma lived in Rokeby Street at the time of registering the birth. I'll do some Googling, but in the mean time, I'd really appreciate any info on the Rokeby St area from you lot

    Dave, it's an area I used to knock around in the late 1970s as my mates were from up by the four squares tenement area which was Soho street and another 2 lived in Jenkinson street off Rokeby Street. My parents were living in the old property in Field Street in the 1950s (before I was born, but around the time Gerard was born) which ran from Everton Brow to almost Islington (sort of parallel with St. Anne Street but a lot further up) All the old property was demolished in the 1960s and a new pedestrianised estate was built to the south of John F. Kennedy heights.

    Gerard, you're a star mate and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to take these shots. I know this street! Been down there loads of time without realising it was Rokeby Street. I know the Netherfield Rd and Gt Homer St areas like the back of my hand. Just looking at the map and it's only a few minutes from your place. Looks like my lot never moved that far away. My Great Grandma and Great Grandad on my Grandma's side didn't live too far away either. They lived in Milford St, just off Boundary St. The street next to their's was called Luton Street. Married in nearby St Alban's Church.

    Many thanks mate

    Hi Ged,
    I was born in 1955, and lived at no 63 field street before moving to kirkby in1958
    my grandparents lived in rokeby st, and my great grandparents lived in william henry st,.Both my parents and grandparents were married at St mary of the angels church (the friary). You say your parents lived in field st, they probably knew my family. Family name Paul.

    Hiya babsie29. Yes, before my time but my mam and dad moved to 150 Field Street in 1952 and were there until 1959. The old Field Street was very different and on a different line to that Field Street which is there now. There are some pics of it and William Henry Street on the 'post war b&w pics' page of my site below.

    Cool

    Does anybody remember the Campbell's of Rokeby Street. My grandad (Jimmy Campbell) used to live there before he moved to Rochdale with Kitty around 1940. They had three sons. The first one died as a baby, and the other 2 are Jeff (67, who married Enid) and John(64 who married Jackie and later Margaret. He is currently married to Haley). Jimmy's brothers were called Danny, Frankie, Luke, Hughie and Adam. His sisters were called Kitty and Nora. If you have any stories about any of these people can you blog me (Howard, Jeff's son) on this page. Cheers, Howard...
