Re: Thomas Orrett and Rose Ellen Hughes

John, Credit to Alex on this occasion. Alex, my sincere apologies, I was looking on my mobile phone and did not see your name as sending the response, so many thanks. The 1816 Mary in my tree is not the correct one either - she is in the 1841 census as single and living with parents. Ah well, may h...

Re: Thomas Orrett and Rose Ellen Hughes

Great work as ever Bert. I was ruminating about the Orrett link but you have found it! FMP has the marriage Banns for Thomas Crossley marrying Mary Orrett on 4th June 1834 at St Anne Richmond church, Liverpool. He was a servant, she a spinster. I have 2 possible Mary Orrett candidates in my tree, on...

Re: Thomas Orrett and Rose Ellen Hughes

https://i.imgur.com/VwRh3rq.jpg Doh, great work Bert as ever, I wondered why the death notice was in the name of Hughes! Looking a bit more, FMP has the copy marriage register with both parties being widowed at the time of that marriage. Thomas Hughes father was John Hughes, deceased and Rose's fat...

Thomas Orrett and Rose Ellen Hughes

Hi, I have renewed my subscription to FMP and have been browsing through the Newspapers section. There is a death Notice in the Liverpool Echo on 31st July 1929 reading: Hughes - July 28th suddenly at 45 Upper Stanhope street cottages, Thomas Orrett, the dearly beloved husband of Rose Ellen Hughes. ...

John,

I suspect there wasn't a wedding, widow hides possible embarrassment, no need to elaborate.
Fair comment Bert, thanks.

Re: Two Baptisms or different person?

Thnks both as ever for the help and clarifying. Not having the people she was with in the census returns made things a little harder. presume they may have been on the father's side rather than the Orretts. I did not see the 'P' for private baptism, but would not have picked up on that. Thanks for t...

I also have a Lancs OPC Baptism record for her, 25 Aug 1886 St Mary, Grassendale, Lancashire, England; Orma Lilian Platt - [Child] of Jo...

Hope this is of use to Johnny O, but I would think he has it. Lynne Hi Lynne, thanks for that. I don't have that Orrett famil...

Re: Edward Harrison b 1813, Liverpool

Thanks Lynne and Bert. Although I know Prescot is a few miles away from Walton, I was not sure if years ago they were classed in the same area. Thanks for putting me straight and for the links Bert. Back to the Harrison/Orrett puzzle :D

Re: Edward Harrison b 1813, Liverpool

Trying to track down the elusive Harrison/Orrett wedding. Thanks to Mary and Dobbin for the copy document. Shame no parents names. It is intriguing me now :) If I narrow it down, where was St Philip's church or parish? Since looking the other day, I have found many more Harrisons for my tree. My Orr...

Also another possible Orrett link, I'll tag JohnnyO to see this and check if he has any connections. Funnily enough I just looked at this post minutes after Mary posted it :lol: . I do not have Margaret marrying Edward Harrison. Saying that, I still have 2 unaccounted for Margaret Orretts in my tre...

The library sent it to St Mary's as part of the batch of books that were borrowed for the weekend. It had lists of grave numbers and a few maps. Only section A had a typed alphabeti...

Hi, I was passing the church yesterday and thought I would have a wander around the graveyard, as several of my relatives are buried there, albeit a long time ago! However, every gate was locked. I have had a Google but cannot see any opening times. Does anyone know when it is normally open to wande...
