    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?
    Thank you,
    Sharon

    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.

    1936 Directory.
    No Italian names, at all in Edinburgh Road.
    The only unusual name between Albany and Saxony Roads is Israel Fishgold at 71 Edinburgh Road.

    Mrs Emma Gorst was at 55.

    Default can someone assist with a directory check request pse

    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.

    Question Can Mandy or another kind soul help a newbie with a frustrating brick wall?

    Hi Mandy,
    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 in abt 1823 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 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.

    Default Trying to trace relatives / friends of Frank Young (born 1915)

    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,
