    Margaret Ann Ward 1873 Oldham Manchester

    Hi... just an update regarding the exact dob of Willie Bullivant. Sent off to Ireland again and asked them to check for a birth for Willie or William Bullivant, with mother Margaret or Maggie Ann Ward - nothing found. Have sent off to Sheffield for B/C for Willie, plus a death cert for Maggie...

    Margaret Ann Ward 1873 Oldham Manchester

    Hi DW, Yes, if you could get the baptismal records for William that would be a geat help, and would be much appreciated. In due course, a birth certificate might arrive back from Ireland, but I'm doubtful. Your endeavours, more directly in Sheffield, are probably the best way forward. KR Luda

    Margaret Ann Ward 1873 Oldham Manchester

    I believe that William was a catholic and that when he married Gertrude the priest put a curse on him for marrying outside of the faith. Perhaps this curse affected him fundamentally for the rest of his life? Anyhow, his wife died giving birth to her 4th child in 1936, in Sheffield ref: 9c 572...

Patrick has since died. Whether Irene is still...

    Thankyou DW I wonder if you could advise me further? I'm very new to genealogy researching, and wonder what are the best websites to use. Some seem better than others, and no doubt some are not as accurate as they could be. Plus, most seem to want payment, sooner or later. How good are the free...

    Margaret Ann Ward 1873 Oldham Manchester

    Hi DW, Thanks for clarifying things for me, that's much appreciated. I've just sent off to Roscommon Ireland for a full BC, to see if Willie was born in Corke sometime between 1900 and 1906, and if so, what his exact date of birth was. I've also written to Glasgow at the Army Personnel...

    Margaret Ann Ward 1873 Oldham Manchester

    Hi DW, TFYH I can't help thinking that I've got the wrong Thomas Henry Bullivant as William's father. When I search BDM for births I get Bullivant Thomas Henry Kirksatll 9b 260 - March 1868 Bullivant Thomas Henry Eccesall B. 9c 239 - Dec 1868 Bullivant Thomas Henry Glanford B. 7a 659 - Dec...

    Margaret Ann Ward 1873 Oldham Manchester

    Thanks DW and DL, I have another query gents... my husband, Paul Richard Bullivant (now deed-polled to Richard Harrison) remembers his father William getting a frequent family visitor who is believed to have been William's sister (or possibly half sister) Margaret Bullivant. In Willie's family...

    Margaret Ann Ward 1873 Oldham Manchester

    Hi DW, I'm trying to get a correct birth date and year for Margaret's son Willie Bullivant, and exactly where he was born. Was it 25 Stovin Road, or somewhere else? He said his mother died when he was 8 years old, so Willie must have been born in 1906/1907. He also said his mother gave birth...
