I've had a look on the GRO site for the Blackley children. I can find an Isabella reg 1859 with mmn Scott and I can find an Archibald reg 1861 mmn Neil. Can find the other sons born Liverpool.

According to the 1861 Census Janet was born in Scotland and there is a marriage on Scotlandspeople for a Thomas Blackley to a Janet Neil 7 August 1852 Paisley Middle

Make of that what you will!

Thanks Emeltee.

Neil is correct.

I thought only my great grandfather's reg was missing but now two out of five makes little sense.

I bought a copy of this one to prove it was the right one. Many variations of the name.

Births Mar 1856 BRAKELEY William Liverpool 8b 7 ms NEIL

1856 Birth in Sub-district of St. Martin - Registration District Liverpool in the County of Lancaster
No. 108 - Thirtieth November 1855 - 35 Eldon Street - William - Boy - Thomas Brakeley - Janet Brakeley formerly Neil - Iron Moulder - The mark of Janet Brakeley Mother 35 Eldon Street Liverpool - Eleventh January 1856 - John Simpson Deputy Registrar


And this one.

Births Mar 1861 BLACKLEY Archibald Liverpool 8b 29 ms NEIL

RD Liverpool - Sub-district St. Martin - County Lancaster
No. 263 - Twenty Seventh January 1861 94 Hedley Street - Archibald - Boy - Thomas Blackley - Janet Blackley formerly Neil - Iron Moulder - Janet Blackley mother 94 Hedley Street Liverpool - Twentieth February 1861 - John Simpson Deputy Registrar


Thomas - no
William - yes
Isabella - no
Archibald - yes
Jessie - yes

Cheap at half the price. It cost me £6 back in 1974.

In case you are not aware the 1861 Census also shows another son, John, born Scotland and by the 1871 Census Thomas is a widower. By 1881 he has married again.

The 1881, 1891 and 1901 census seem to show Thomas had remarried but I can't find the marriage or the death of Ann. Also three census show him born Paisley but he was born in Ireland.
