    That would be interesting to know. Wonder if it's something like Jones or Smith

    A random survey it would appear to be Jones, just went to 118.com and input Smith and Jones for 3 different L postcodes (L13 L16 L25) - Jones was clearly the most popular in each one

    Hiya Everyone
    I havn't got a single Smith or Jones in my tree . At least it's made searching for ancestors that bit easier .

    I'm surprised people In Liverpool find my surname hard to pronounce!

    Isn't Molyneux supposed to be a well known Liverpool surname?

    I've got Burns and Dugans In my tree but dunno any of them.

    Default the jones,s

    Mandy I,m afraid the Jones, have infiltrated our family too. When I was working in Button Street back in the 60s I had a mate called Eric Jones and in my last job in Drury Lane I had another pal called Eric Jones 25 years apart. Don,t know if they were related or not but they weren,t Welsh but broad Scouse.

    My mothers maiden name was Hengler and I know there are a few more of them about now than when I was a kid,but it is still a bit of rare surname.If there are any Henglers out there it is odds on that we are related.

    On a visit to Spain one year I was invited to meet the King.

    Didn't bother going.

    When you've met Juan Carlos you've met 'em all!

    Perhaps I've got circuses on the brain, but do Edwardo and Brian come from a long line of Ringmasters?

    Wasn't there a pub up past Gregsons Well called Hengler's circus?

    Also, isn't there Gerry Cottle's circus?

    Yes Kevin,Henglers was a very famous circus and it stood where the Hippodrome was. In fact it was a horse circus and it was thought that my family was connected to it .If you read the very early chapters of my story on Hullo Old Home you will read the details. Apparently the Tivoli theater chain was also owned by the Hengler family,this included the London Palladium.
