    Default well known Families

    Does anyone know whether the grocery people, the Irwins, were an Irish family who came over from the famine era?

    157-159 Westminster Road Kirkdale

    John Irwin 40 Grocer b.Ireland
    Sarah Irwin 37 b. Ireland
    James N. Irwin 14 Grocer's assistant B. Liverpool
    Sarah J. Irwin 12
    Georgina Irwin 10
    Arthur P. Irwin 8
    Jessie R. Irwin 6
    Harold Irwin 4
    Herbert H. Irwin 2
    Alice M. Ashcroft 19 general servant

    A bit off subject. There's a tiled 'Irwin' sign in Old Swan. Although I'm not 100% sure, I think it's hidden behind the new advertising opposite the HSBC bank at the top of Pemberton Road.

    There were two Irwins shops in Anfield; one on the bend of Lower Breck rd/Breck rd, and there was one on Townsend lane. There may have been one on Priory rd but I'm not certain.

    Angry I,m not in for a fortune after all

    Hello Maurice, I was hoping to find a connection between the Irwins that had the chain grocers and my family. BUT Shaun, thank you for the family run down, prooves that I am not in fact related to them as far as my research has gone to date.

    Thank you both.
