I don't know her husbands name, but have decided to send off for the death
cert. Hopefully this will release some more clues. A real mystery. I
can't find a connection and would love to know why my parents and theirs
before them kept a funeral card for this lady for over 70 years! (and I
have kept it a further 25 making it 95 years in all!)
Happy New Year to all. Let's hope it continues to be bug free and that it
is a lucky one for ancestor spotting.

Please could someone help me out...
I have just found a note (in my own handwriting) that John SCHOFIELD and
family were at 52 Coare St, Macclesfield in 1861, but stupidly I haven't
recorded the details. If someone could check the census and send me the full
details, I'd be very grateful.

served on various ships out of Liverpool)....however he
is reading about King Arthur and the Knights and

the story too (forgot to ask him how it was spelt). I
know it isn't strictly genealogy but I can't think of
better folk to ask. Anyone have a clue? Many thanks.

R Meehan asked about Ragged Schools.
Egremont is a district of Wallasey ~ brings back memories of Gerry and
the Pacemakers "Ferry 'cross the Mersey"
Ragged schools were prevalent in the Country in 19th century. The
origins were featured recently in a local TV history programme.
Ragged Schools started in the South of England, the earliest was
perhaps in Portsmouth. I shall try to relay the detail as best I can
A craftsman was crippled and realised how society looked down on the
poorer classes. As he earned a crust in a backstreet workshop,
ragamuffins stopped by to look. So he became a benefactor helping them
to learn skills and earn a few pennies. He introduced classes to give
them a basic education. These schools started in the South spread

To all Listers,
I note over this special period that many people on the list are offering to
carry out searches of the UK Info Disk which, althougn I realise that it
have its limitations, can be very helpful in some cases for locating lost
relatives and friends.
This special time of the year is when we probably think of those lost
relatives and friends the most and I have no doubt that when a person comes
on a list and offers to do a search they get so inudated that they take
a while before making the offer again.
We are setting up a page where persons making such offers can be listed and
which should even out a rush of requests into a gentle flow that can be
If you can do a few searches now and again would you please pass your e-mail
details to us and the area you wish to cover.

Yes. Egremont is a suburb of Wallasey. It is on the River Mersey between
Seacombe and New Brighton: inland it abuts on Liscard.
I will do the best I can with this information. What passengers lists have

My father in law has been working with me on our family history and he has been reminiscing about a house in which his family lived in the early 1920's. It was called TIGHNABRUAICH and the address was Hilltop, Wilmslow.
Does anyone know of this house? Does it still exist and if so does it still have the same, gaelic, name?
Any information would, as they say, help to make an elderly man very happy.
Thanks in anticipation and a happy new year to everyone on the list.
