Hello Everybody


New member

I am new to this forum and my name is Mary . I live in Australia but came here from Liverpool UK in 1978.
and hope with your help I can sort out my Brick wall (Dead-end).excuse the pun.

I have a marriage certificate of my Gt Grandfather George Pilgrim married to Elizabeth Walmsley in 1863 he was 35 yr s old ( so birth 1825c ). His father James Pilgrim was listed as deceased on the marriage certificate and occupation Cooper. George was a lodger in Liverpool and a Merchant Seaman, the house he lodged in had lots of mariners there. So I am not sure were he came from or his father James. I do know my Grandfather was born in 1870 also called George Pilgrim but Gt Grand father was not with them in the 1871 census. He just vanished and My Gt Grandmother Elizabeth remarried in 1878. Mystery here. Also George was an only child and I find it hard to fathom that they married in 1863 and then 7 years later Granddad was born.
Hope someone can give me a clue for my next move. I have searched and searched but nothing to tie things together.
