Brothers and sisters, I posted a while back concerning some of my ancestors who lived out of town yet married in Liverpool, this puzzled me at the time because they and their spouses returned to live in their own parish areas of Tarbock/Cronton. I had thought that as there may have been some business connection with Liverpol,that was all there was to it, but it seems that there were more connections than initially evident.
William Pilkington had 8 children, born and bred in the Lydiate/Maghull area. Of his 3 sons,Thomas as a young man, was a shopkeeper in Mill St, L/pool when he met his wife to be (born in Ormskirk, but living at that time in Queens Square), they married in St. Paul's (the site of which was later L/pool stadium) it was they who settled inTarbock and established the line of which I belong.
His brother Richard, met his intended wife (born L/pool) when they were both residing at addresses in Peach St, L/pool- they and their descendants settled in Huyton.
William, the 3rd brother, and his wife, (again, born in Ormskirk) settled in, and lived in several addresses in Kirkdale, and it is this particular branch which has opened further lines of research for me.
I will be seeking the help once again, of our experts on Yo!, at some stage regarding some of the locations mentioned above, and others which are relevant.
Brothers and sisters, thank you for now, and have a nice day, y'all.
P.s, there is also the possibility that another distant rellie was at one point keeper of the Feathers Hotel in Clayton Square.
P.p.s, At which point did I make the transition from Newbie to Senior member?!
