Hello,

Variants include BLAIKLEY, BLAKELEY, BLAKLEY, BRAKLEY, BRACKLEY, BLEKLEY...

1861

Civil parish: Liverpool
RD: Liverpool
Sub-RD: St. Martin
94 New Hedley Street
Thomas Blackley head age 30 occ Iron moulder born Ireland
Janet wife age 30 born Scotland
John son age 8 born Scotland
Thomas son age 6 born Liverpool
William son age 4 born Liverpool
Isabella dau age 2 born Liverpool
Archibald son age 11wks born Liverpool

1871
RG10 3826/5/3
Civil parish: Kirkdale
RD: West Derby
Sub-RD: Toxteth Park
67 Westminster Road
Thomas Blackley lodger wid age 38 occ Iron moulder born Scotland ? [Ireland]
Thomas Blackley lodger age 16 occ railway clerk born Liverpool
William Blackley age 15 occ shop errand boy born Liverpool
Archibald Blackley age 12 born Liverpool


Please see if John can be found in Scotland or England in 1871.

I believe John was born in Paisley although I've not yet found a birth/baptism record. I believe Thomas and William were born in Liverpool although I can't find a reg on FreeBMD or a baptism on Lancs OPC site for either. Seems the family moved from Paisley to Liverpool around 1854.

Also, I'd like a check of the two census references please.

EDIT: I can confirm this is the death of Isabella at 57 Broomlands Paisley Burgh.

1873 BLACKLEY ISABELLA F 13 PAISLEY /RENFREW 573/00 0042

Hello Steve,

Thank you very much.

I suspected one of those references was wrong. The 1871 it turned out. ;)

Well, that seems to fit with born Paisley and children named Sarah, John and Isabella. An Isabella in five generations of the family including several cousins in same generation.

Now to find the marriage. I wonder:

Marriages Dec 1873
Bastard Sarah W.Derby 8b 602
BLACKLEY John W. Derby 8b 602
Robson John William W.Derby 8b 602
Towell Catherine Anderson West Derby 8b 602


I can't find the marriages elsewhere to match the couples.

Regards,

Dave

Sarah Ann BASTARD b: 1864 in Hindolveston,,Norfolk,,, c: 19 Apr 1864 in Hindolveston,,Norfolk,,,Parish record at NRO - no father shown illegitimate (surname as Barsted)

:D


Births Mar 1855

Hello Josie,

Thank you very much. This is the one I didn't find last time I looked:

Births Mar 1881
BLACKLEY Isabella Liverpool 8b 149

Please try 1901 and that will be this branch done. Thanks.

I've just about given up with James and Sarah born Glasgow.

I'm making no progress with William JACK.

Dave
