Help,I need somebody.......
Brothers and sisters, once again I must seek the assistance of our generous geneaologists to'give us a bunk', as it were, over the wall I have encountered in my latest bout of ancestral sleuthing.
Robert Davies b 1878 (Garston ?, but could have possibly been Wales just to make it more confusing) married in 1897 (Garston) Mary Ann Loftus b 1878 (Garston, possibly Irish Parents).
Until I can pinpoint the parentage of this couple, I am once more at full stop.
I will be grateful as always for any help proffered.
Adieu, mes amis, adieu.
Margaret Loftus married b 1858 Ireland
Mary Loftus 1878 Garston
Margaret 1880 "
Denis 1882 "
Selina 1884 "
Bridget 1886 "
John 1888 "

John Paton 1823 Lab Ireland
Margaret 1825 "
James 1866 "
Mary Loftus 1878 niece Garston
29, Shand St Garston
James Loftus to Margaret Paton June 1877 West Derby 8b 826
Hiya Red...we meet again...1881 census
74 Raglan Street
Mary head aged 35 Widow Charwoman
Elizabeth aged 12
Margaret Ann aged 10
John aged 8
Thomas aged 5 ....all born Liverpool....
Robert aged 3 born Garston
so doesn`t help much for his dad , but at least now you know his mum was Mary...maybe we need to step back a little here , cos looking for a marriage in Liverpool around 1869 for a Davies to a Mary...........oh dear...mission impossible...and if you look for the 1871 census in Liverpool for Mary Davies aged 25 with Elizabeth aged 2 and newly born Mary Ann (if she has been born )...another hard task....genuinely hard research mate...the very best of luck...you`re gonna need it......allan
Sister Dot, it seems that every time I go a-lookin', you come a-helpin', for which I am always grateful.

I don't wish to push my luck, but if anything else crops up, I'd be interested to see it.

I thank you for the above as I do all my historical helpmates on yo!, and elsewhere.
Adios y gracias mi amigo.
Interesting!!!! But I gave-up the search with the Davis's in Garston , got too confusing!!! My maternal grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Davies (nee Roberts) grandfather was Edward. I believe all came from North Wales originally but I was unable to get any further back than grandparent!! I wish all those that try "Better Luck"!
So my kiddies may have an adopted antipodean ancestor eh?,who knows old boy, you never can tell.
This may well prove to be a tougher nut to crack than other lines of my research, but if I receive the assistance I have had heretofore,I have great expectations, which is no bad thing brother Norm, no bad thing at all.
Cheerio old chum,cheerio.
I wish you well in your endevours Red! The Davies's from my family arrived in Garston from North Wales, via Seacome/Elsmere Port, way back before the first world war. I was unable to trace any of them in the Welsh Registry search.
