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.
