Hello,

This is not my family but I'd like to rule others out.

Marriages Jun 1850
BLAKELEY Thomas Manchester 20 622
BOARDMAN Alice Manchester 20 622

I'd like a look up please for the family in 1851, 1861 and 1871.

A son Thomas BLEKLEY was born Dec 1853 in Poplar Grove West Derby.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

That is the family that fits the marriage and birth reg. I should have added that the occupation on the birth certificate of Thomas for his father Thomas was Twine spinner. :)

Births Mar 1854
Blekley Thomas W Derby 8b 357


Definitely not my family so it really looks as if there is a baptism but no birth reg for my Thomas.

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello Barbara,

Oh, it pays to look at the ages as well as the children's names. :biggrin:

Yes, we have to ask 2nd marriage or 2x Thomas & Alice both Twine spinners.

The address in 1851 was Poplar Grove.

My failed attempt to find the birth reg of my great grandfather:

Births Mar 1854
Blekley Thomas W Derby 8b 357

1854 Birth in the Sub-district of West Derby Registration District of West Derby in the County of Lancaster
No 396 - Twenty-third December 1853 Poplar Grove West Derby - Thomas - Boy - Thomas Blekley - Alice Blekley formerly Boardman - Twine spinner - The mark x of Alice Bleckley Mother Poplar Grove West Derby - Thirteenth January 1854 - Richard Bradshaw Registrar

Regards,

Dave
 
Baptism records are not helping. Nothing seems to fit with the West Derby as listed for pob.

I have my Thomas in 1861 and in 1871 he is a railway clerk.

So, that's it for this topic.
