Patrick Galvin

Hello Margie,

There is no sign of Patrick in the English census, but there are a number of them of the correct age in Ireland, in 1911.

All I can suggest is that you purchase his Birth Certificate, to find out the name of his parents.

Sorry, I couldn't offer you any positive results!

:) Josie
With the info you have, I found his mother
John Galvin married Julia Lavin a/j 1903 Prescot ref 8b 1169

Julia 27, died j/s 1910 Prescot ref 8b 438
