Seeking information on Deborah, my ggg-grandmother, who was
transported to NSW as a First Fleet convict for stealing a
petticoat from the house of Henry Byrom in Daresbury.
Errol asks what name I'm interested in.
My grandfather Thomas William PATERSON ,was born at 13 Liverpool Buildings
Tranmere on 5 February 1852. His father DAVID was a printer and his mother
was Eleanor (maiden name - Kirkpatrick).
TW was the last born in the family and I have been trying ,so far without
success, to determine who all the others were.I know he had a brother John
because he lived in Sydney (he died when I was a toddler but I knew his wife
Mary as she lived until 1939 and by then I was at High school)
The only census covering that area available locally that I have found is
1881 - I think I've found David's death in the Index for 1875.
A curiosity I've found is that the 1881 census shows my father,his eldest
sister and his mother but shows the father/husband as Francis not Thomas ;
I've located births for both TW and FW in the Index but Birkenhead cannot
find Francis and TW was actually born in the quarter the Index says FW was
born in not the one it allocates to him !
Any information applicable to above would be welcome.
Thanks in advance....................DON

I had the same problem, but speechmail did nothing
for me with 2 screeching children. I use the
programme POP3 scan mailbox. It allows me to see
what is in my mailbox without downloading them,
and if there is a problem with a mail to delete it
before it gets to my inbox.
I was given the site address, but I can't find it
now. If you set your search engine to find Scan
Mailbox, it is well worth it, and MUCH cheaper
If you are researching your family name you are no doubt aware of Robert de
Bebington who owned Higher Bebington at the end of the 11th century. Lower
Bebington was owned by the Lancelyn family at that time although formerly
vested in Osborne Fitz Tezzon. According to "The Wirral" by Alan Brack, the
name Bebingon is generally considered to be of Anglo-Saxon origin and since
"ton" means farm or stedding, there must have been a tribe called Bebing,
probably led by Bebba - or so the theory goes.

I think you will find that during the period you
are researching, the non conformists did not have
to attend a C of E Church to to partake of any
sacramental services, but all their BMD's had to
be registered at the local Parish Church.
Someone somewhere out there must have come across the name Duncalf or
variants in their family history. The name, my maiden name, has been the
subject of my one name study for almost 20 years and I have tons of info
to share. Please contact me if you come across the name in your family
This is just to let you know that we are being decorated next year and
the Tameside Local Studies Library will close at 7.30pm on Wednesday
26th January 2000, until 9.00am on Friday 18th February (2000). I know
it's a bit previous, but we like to give people plenty of warning.
We will still be answering postal enquiries and we hope to continue with
an e-mail service, but we're not too sure about the latter as nobody has
managed to sort out whether the computer can be re-sited in the cellars
or not (or if they have, they haven't told me, but I'm always the last
to know *sigh* - whinge, whinge!). Personally I hope not, as it is
jolly chilly down there!!!
Bye the way, if you are asking about archives, please bear with us as we
are currently archivistless - Helen has returned to her roots in
Scotland and our new man does not come until January - just in time to
help move everything round!

I am trying to identify a photograph of an officer in the uniform of probably the Rifle Volunteer Regiment, possibly of Nantwich. Does anybody know if there are any regimental records in existence for the latter part of the 19th. century. I have tried the Imperial War Museum and the National Army Museum who don't seem to know of any.
First apologies to all who received odd, cryptic e-mails such as 'Repeat,
Delete' etc. Also to those who have posted me recently and received no
I've had my e-mail 'hang-up' and only managed to free it by signing up for
Speechmail and then verbally deleteing each single message until the culprit
disappeared. In the process I lost about 60 e-mails between 24/11/99 and
If those listers who may have mailed me recently and received no reply could
re-send their message I promise that I will reply.

I just found out that my grgrgrandparents were living in Birkenhead at the
time of the 1881 census. Their dwelling was listed only as "5 Block".
Scanning through the area I found a lot of these kind of references, that is
a number and Block. Is there any way of telling from this precisely what
part of Birkenhead this would be?
Related to this question, has anyone used the 1861 census for this area? Has
their been any indexing done? Is the town broken into subdistricts or is
enumerated in one big chunk?
My goal is to find my grgrgrandparents with my 5 year old grgrandfather on
the 1861 census.
Answers to any or all of these questions would be appreciated.

Whilst I can't say that I do for sure, I thought I should mention (just in
case you don't already know) that the bookshop manager at the Manchester &
Lancashire Family History Society is Harry BEBBINGTON. He must know
something about the name.
The bookshop can be reached on bookshop(a)mlfhs.demon.co.uk.
Paul C. Sherlock,
I am looking for information on Abraham GIBBON Christened 13 Mar 1803 in
Altrincham, Wesleyan, Cheshire, married Jane GIBBON on 21 Aug 1822 at
Daughter Hannah GIBBON Christened: 19 Nov 1823, married John PEARSON on 22
Oct 1843 at Manchester Cathedral.
I think that Abraham died somewhere between 1822 and 1828 as Adam SHAW
married Jane GIBBON on 16 Apr 1828 at Manchester Cathedral. They then had
two more children Ann SHAW christened 25 Dec 1833 and Mary SHAW Christened
7 Feb 1836.
Anyone who has any info regarding these people or any insight into how
Abrahm GIBBON may have died, please contact me.
Cheers Ginny in a very rainy Malta
