hi everyone -is there anyone who can help me.
I have quite a lot of information on my fathers parents but there is one issue that I am stuck on.
In the 1911 census both of them re shown to be inmates at Preston jail-this was new to me so I would like to know why they were in there.
Their names were James Whelan and Ellen Wilson.I would be most grateful for any help.
