Hi Bernard & Sue,
I'm another one COTTAM person. The only COTTAM info I have at the moment is
that on 14th Aug 1877 Jane COTTAM, a Cotton Power Loom Weaver, married
Alexander WALMSLEY, also a Cotton Power Loom Weaver. Alexander was living
at 6 Hamilton Street in Blackburn, Jane was living at 48 Landsdowne Street,
Witton. Her father was John COTTAM.
There are a couple of possible births for Jane on FREEBMD but as I'm feeling
a little poor at the moment, rather than order certificates I'm waiting on
my next trip to Blackburn Library to see what I can unearth there. No idea
when that's likely to be though.

I don't have ready access to the 1851 census for Bolton but as regards
your mention of the index you may find the following helpful. All
references are to the surname Barrow.

Which all means that in each folio given above there is someone with the
surname Barrow on at least one of the 62 lines in the folio. From the
above information there is no way of telling whether the reference is to
one person or a family or two families. An address is not required -
just a strong right arm to wind the film to the appropriate folios. With
luck the film reader may have a motor. Luxury !
I was wondering if SKS could tell me how to go about obtaining a copy of a

licence have the name of the licenee on it, when they owned the pub and how

I've just read that someone is asking about hospital records, there is an
online database on the PRO's website of where hospital records are kept, if
you follow this link:
As you will see though from the notes there are records which are subject to
a 100 year closure period, although recently I managed to view the admission
and discharge registers for one hospital at one record office, another said
that the same closure period would apply to the admission and discharge
registers as would apply to patients records when I wanted to check another
Although I believe if you are the next of kin of the patient if you write in
to the place which holds the records, you can apply for them. Anyway, it may
be worthwhile checking the above site to check where the records are kept,
and take it from there.
All the best
I replied to Tim yesterday regarding Eccleston Hall, but just noticed that
Shell wanted the answer posting to the list as well, Eccleston Hall is still
there, only it is now a nursing home, it's on Holme Road, St. Helens, in the
general area of Taylor Park.
If you go to www.multimap.com, and type in Holme Road, St. Helens, you'll see
the general area.
All the best.
I too have Parkers and Parkinsons in my tree. They are from South of

Yes, the building is still there as far as I know. It's behind the
Triplex works site, by Taylor Park. I think it was rebuilt at some
point, so it'd depend on the date as to whether it's the same one you
want to know about.
I was hoping SKS could do a 1871 Census lookup for
6 Princess Court, Bury (could be the CROSSLEY family)
12 George Street, Bury (Could be the DANKS family)
I am wondering whether Princess Court could possibly be the present day

No, not too young to be going into service or to be employed in a mill etc.

This is a report concerning the deaths at Tooting
The pauper children farmed out at Tooting.
The frightful rapidity in which the cholera spread in Mr DROUETS establishment at Tooting has exited the scientific world and brought the deep attention of the Benevolent.
The sad mortality seems to imply that overcrowding, improper diet, and insufficient clothing have been productive of that susceptibility of disease in the children.
An inquest was held on tues last by Mr WAKLEY. M.P. on four victims that died in the Royal Free Hospital after being removed from Mr DROUETS establishment.
Mr DROUET was given 4/6d per head for the children and had 1,300 at his establishment.
On visiting last may it was reported that the children were inspected at dinner time the meat was reasonable and the potatoes of which 100 separate plates were used , were black and diseased. The children were standing and inspectors told that they always stood to eat..
School rooms, dormitories appeared clean and workshops tidy, the infants sleeping room had a very unhealthy smell.
The girls appeared healthy but the boys sickly, the boys were questioned on treatment , 40 held up their hands to intimate dissatisfaction and complained about not having enough food, Mr DROUET became violent and called the boys liars he said they were the worst in the school. and threatened them with a thrashing.
On medical inspection two thirds of the children had itch, eruptions of scabies, sore feet, tumid abdomens, lax muscles and diseases joints some had large bellies characteristic of scrofulous patients.
It was concluded that the person responsible for the childrens health was now under a serious charge, guilty though he may be the principle which refuses to condemn before trial and proof of guilt would be respected
Expose the poor to cold, hunger and impure air and they feed the Cholera, feed them, clothe them and give them pure air and they defy it.
If you mean the address at which he normally lived but was
absent at the time of the Census, then he does not appear at
that address but at the address where he was staying for
that particular date.

Could SKS please check in the 1861 census who was at:
11 Rose Place in the Scotland Ward of Liverpool.?
>From an 1860 directory of Liverpool (not easily searchable), the only LONSDALE I can find in that area is John, a Provision Dealer, at number 11.Rose Place.
In 1866 a son Thomas was born , to Thomas and Mary Ann, in Elgin Street which is local to Rose Place
In 1869 a son Joseph William was born in Belle Street, even closer to Rose Place.
Any help in tying these together, or not, would be much appreciated,
