Mary Wright was born 22 Dec 1858, West Derby, Lancashire; Christened Jan 1959. She is listed on the 1881 census as being 22 years of age, unmarried; parents Elizabeth and John Wright.

I am trying to find out if any brothers/sisters were listed with her in the 1881 census, or the earlier at the Dwelling: Cherry Lane (Elm House), West Derby, Lancashire

She married 18th May 1881 to Thomas Joseph Lloyd and they had 3-4 children before heading to Australia in 1891. Any help appreciated.

Hi Barbara:)
I tried to locate all the sons in later census but there are just so many men with the same names.
Some head of household, others lodgers.
I'm sorry not to have been of much help.
Cherry Lane from 1881 was very posh and for many years later..
Possibly mother Elizabeth died in 3rd qtr 1873 aged 53yrs

I appreciate you time doing the follow up.

Mary married Thomas Joseph Lloyd in Walton Lancashire in 1881 and between that time and 1891 they came to Australia. Their children have names like Ruby, Maud, Blanch, (born in UK) and Ewart, Josephine, Dorothy, Joseph (born in Australia). These names, apart from Joseph, don't relate to the Lloyd side of the family so I was hoping the Wright's had these names somewhere in their past. Did they pop up anywhere in your search?

Again many thanks for going the extra mile.

Cheers Barbara

Hi Barbara
Thanks for lovely reply :)
They married in St Mary's Walton

Lpool R.O is closed for refurb so can't ask a mate to have a squizz at the
marriage for you, sometimes the witnesses hold clues.
Ruby Mildred Lloyd bn dec 1887 W Dby rego not sure if she's your Ruby.
sorry she died as a baby poor little love.

Not much help soz
