I was wondering, do we have any SHAWCROSS'S on the Cheshire site?. In the

I am living and working in Minnesota but am Canadian born. My grandparents
on my father's side came to Canada in their late teens from England. My
grandfather was from London. My grandmother was born in the Hare and
Hounds in Crowton, Cheshire around 1891. It is her family that we are
trying to trace and have found wonderful information and contacts through
Robert Crouchley. My grandmother was born Jane Crouchley and was raised by
relatives in the Burston family. Although we have been primarily tracing
the Crouchley family, I now have the "bug" to learn more about other names
in the extended family. I am very excited to be travelling with my father
and mother to Cheshire in April. We are hoping to visit places that we
have connected with the family and especially meet family we did not know
we had until quite recently. I love taking pictures and will be looking
forward to bringing back lots of pictures and stories to pass on to my
sons. If any of you have tips or tricks to aid us on our journey we would
be most appreciative.
Does anyone have acess to a census of 1821 for Rostherne? If anybody does could you check for
the names of BERRY and HOWARD. Would be everlastingly grateful and would hope to be able to return some favors/favours Love the list, Margaret Carlson in Michigan

Hi, saw your message on the Cheshire list, and noticed one of the names you
are researching is Caldwell-My grandmother's first marriage was to a
Caldwell-she was from Virginia. Think his name was Sid or Syd. Wish I could
tell you more. Would
you let me know if you trace this name to Virginia??

John YOUD of Oscroft is buried in St. Andrew's churchyard Tarvin.
Died 24 September 1822 aged 39 according to his gravestone. He is one
of 20 YOUDs in the churchyard
I have looked for his marriage but my Tarvin marriage index is
incomplete. I did find a Samuel YOUD who married Betty DAVIES
(remember her?) 31 Mar 1777.
Oscroft is a township within Tarvin parish and the residents were and
still are "hatched, matched and despatched" at St. Andrew's, Tarvin.
The Chester area phone book lists 15 YOUDs but most of them live in
Wales. There are 8 YOUDE's and two live in Tarvin.
Hope this is of interest.
Please forgive me casting a net in hopes of getting info. I am looking for
