    Default English Ancestors in Liverpool

    Now this one you think would be easy, English ancestors? after all I am English? Well I do have a couple, but believe me they where hard to find. It just goes to show you dont really know what your ancestry is until you look.

    My ggg Grandfather Thomas Miller was from Kendal, He was a car driver ( never knew they had cars then ) I believe its a kind of Taxi as it is listed as " Driver of a horse-drawn passenger vehicle for hire " he married Harriet who came from Somerset. They seem to have been living a pretty ok life in Toxteth.

    This could be a good thread, where do your Enlish ancestors originate from?

    My family are all from Liverpool going back 5 generations. Clubmoor/Anfield on my mum's side and Walton/kirkdale/Bootle on my dad's side.

    Going back a bit further I have found ancestors from Norfolk, Nottingham and Lancashire. (they must have been working their way up to the Pool)

    on maternal side
    Whitehaven (Sealby...a very common name up that way it transpires)
    Manchester/Salford
    Liverpool (Edge Hill/Everton mostly)

    possibly a Yorkshire connection too.

    Paternal side is Welsh/Irish in origin
    Proud Scouser, with a dabbling of Welsh and Irish.

    bore yourself silly at my Flickr page...anorak central!

    For Lindy



    a Lighterman, worked on barges, carrying goods or wares up and down the river and from cargo ships to shore

    This site may give some info http://www.parishregister.com/aboutstp.html Its London, but it will give you some idea.

    Im sure a Liverpool one will appear pretty soon with this lot on here

    Thanks Tony.

    One of my great grandads was a lighterman and I wondered what it was.
