    Post Hotels past & present

    Hi
    Tracing my family tree is proving to be an amazing on-line journey around England and Ireland. Someone from Merseyside Geneology & History Forum kindly pointed me to this website in my search for hotels in Liverpool that a Great Grandfather worked in from around 1870s to 1880s. No-one in the family really knows anything about him so I'm trying to piece some of his life together.
    Please can anyone help me on this? Looking for photos or info about the Hanover Hotel which I think is Hanover Court in 1871. I've seen some recent photos (it's a blues & rock venue) but don't know if it's the same hotel. Also the New Brighton Hotel in New Brighton. Can't find anything about this. A bit out of the area but there's also The Lion Hotel, 67 Bridge St, Warrington.
    His wife Maria Tansey came from Ireland. She lived in Fortesque Street, West Derby (1881 ish).
    Thanks for a great website & forum. I love all the old photos.
    Val

    Hi

    Yes, he's on the 1871 Census (usual wrong spelling) at the Hanover Hotel. His occupation was a billiard marker- whatever that is? I really don't know if he lived there. He's on the 1881 Census at the Lion Hotel, Warrington. Again I don't know if he lived there. He married in 1882 when he was working at the New Brighton Hotel. He certainly liked hotels/pubs. Must run in the family!

    Cheers

    Hi
    Thanks for the offer. GGrandfather's name was Charles Henry Bolt. He arrived in Liverpool somewhere between 1861-1871. He calls himself Chas Hy Bolt on his marriage cert. He probably thought that really cool. In Kelly's Directory of Liverpool & Birkenhead 1894, the Hanover Hotel address is 62, Seel St. Proprieter Thos Wheeler. On the Census it just says Hanover Court. The Brunswick Hotel was no. 66. I think the Hanover Hotel of today could be the same one- it has a renovated look about it.
    I can't find anything about the New Brighton Hotel or The Lion in Warrington. Surprising as there's so much history on-line about Liverpool/Lancashire.
    Something else I'm not sure about: is the Church of Our Lady of Mercy (can't find this listed) the same as the church called Sacred Heart, Hall Lane?

    Cheers
    Val
