Elizabeth Brooks Born 1833 Liverpool Lancashire
married Charles Thorne 1849 Liverpool Lancashire

Elizabeth died 1909 in Birmingham, any help appreciated
Best regards StericoO0
Hi Sterico ,
A look on the 1841 census shows only an Elizabeth Jane Brooks abt 1834 Liverpool nothing else comes near.
Hi Lizanne,
does that entry give the father, mother and other siblings ? if so could you post the details for me? thanks regards StericoO0

There is only one marriage for Thomas Brook(e) to a "Jane" in the IGI between 1815 & 1835 in Liverpool- might be worth more investigation...

Hello Sterico,

Having had a quick exploration for Elizabeth (not yet her marriage or subsequent family); hope the following is of interest and relevant to your BROOKS Family:

(Possibly the above two Catherine Brooks are widowed mother and her daughter – just a guess)

Hi Tazettemb, and Gemma's Pal,
No I didn't have the census information, so thank you Both for taking the time and trouble to find the information that you both have posted. Also thank you Jane for your information. Wow thats going to keep me busy and out of trouble for a while cross checking that lot:)
Again thanks for cracking this particular wall:biggrin:
Best regards to all three of you StericoO0
Sorry for delay in getting back to you I own a pub so weekends usually a bit busy. I see the information has been posted for you.
No probs Lizanne, I work in pubs and clubs at the weekend so I know how busy it can be:D thanks for your help
Regards StericoO0
Just looking thru the thread and noticed u have the name of Brooks.....so have I......awaiting certificates from GRO which I only ordered today for my maternal grandparents........grandfathers name RANKIN......grandmothers name MIDDLETON........I have done quite extensive search already over the last couple of weeks following my grandmothers maiden name and other female lines......i've gone from MIDDLETON to BARHAM to BROOKS......the entry I have is a marriage entry for Sarah Elizabeth BROOKS born in West Ham, London in the June quarter of 1865......the man she married is Oldthen or Oldthan BARHAM.....the Vol is 4a Page 31......I have looked thru some other stuff which I'd have to re-find (as at that point I got brain overload and shut pc down without saving, but it cant b to hard to find again) It mentioned something about a place called Middleton.....I have come to a stop with Oldthen BARHAM.....I think I may have to order a birth cert for him to continue and i STILL cant find any origin for his forename
Would b great if we could share any info and c if there is any link

Athy :)
Hi athenlou
I have taken a note of your info and when I have checked all the info I already have and cross checked it, I will get back to you, you never know we could be related :D
Best regards StericoO0
