Having had a look at the names you've given, I can see the marriage entry for Edward Harrison and Ellen Ratcliffe but certainly nothing for an Edwin Addison and Helen Radcliffe. I was wondering if you've obtained that marriage certificate, to confirm one way or another? It occurred to me that...
I think the best thing to do with Rose Elizabeth is to get her birth certificate as well - at least then you'd know. For all we know she could be adopted!
Rose Elizabeth Webb Sep 1873 Lichfield 6b 419
I agree that the most likely marriage is James and Mary Meloy Sep 1867 Lichfield. If...
Ok, how about this? What if James Wright married ? and George Webb married ?. Then George's wife died and James Wright died and Jane Wright (nee Matthews) married George Webb? There's a marriage entry in BMD:
Marriages Mar 1884
CURRY Edward Morpeth 10b 447
I don't know if you have this information but looking at James and Jane's marriage entry it states that James' birth year is 1845, he's a widower and his father is Thomas. Jane's birth year is 1853 her father is Joseph and she's a spinster. The marriage was in Silverdale, Staffordshire...
I don't know if there is a distant connection but I have quite a few Thomas Seawards from Devon in my family tree. However, the furthest I go back at the moment is about 1808, so way past the time your ancestor emigrated.
I've not been able to see any marriages between Thomas...
I'm back from my travels. We did visit West Derby cemetery and took some photos. However, there wasn't a headstone, much as I'd expected.
I'm not sure the best way to send you the photos. How about if you send me a private message with your email address, then I could send the photos...
I don't if these urls are of any use to you but I have them bookmarked, as I'm also searching Staffordshire parish records.
http://www.genealogylinks.net/uk/england/staffordshire/staffordshire_parish_registers.htm this has Silverdale and Knutton mentioned...
The entry has Thomas Phillips, Homerton (I think - the writing is a bit blurred) and Sophia Bowden. Married in the parish of St. John, Hackney. Witnesses are I or J Bowden and Ann Bowden. Curate looks like a C. Paroifsien. Thomas is a bachelor and Sophia a spinster...
I don't mind going at all. I just hope there's an headstone for me to take a photo of and some info for you. I'd hate for you to have had your hopes built up for nothing.
I hold the deeds of a family grave in Anfield cemetery and was very disappointed to find only a flat piece of...
Thanks Oznannie. :) I like to help other folk if I can. I may well need some myself sometime.
Great of you to look up grave, well done/
Here's a link to cemetery plots.
All the best
