The building known as The Roman Catholic Chapel was opened in 1799 in Dalton Square, Lancaster with a priest's house next door. (This is the house where the later Buck Ruxton murders took place.)
The Roman Catholic Cathedral of St Peter was built between 1857 and 1859 at the junction of East Road and St Peter's Road. Your ancestor could possibly have been attending either of these venues in 1859.
The old Roman Catholic Chapel in Dalton Square now houses the Planning Department of Lancaster City Council.
Does anyone know if, when a couple married by Licence in the early 1800's,
they would have to give parents names??
Also would the licence applications have been kept anywhere official?

Where are all the DUCKWORTHs in Lancashire? - if you are on this mailing list, please let me know who you are.
Just to say a big thankyou for finding Israel Eccleston for me in the 1891. I can now
take another 10 years off the search for the death date of Elizabeth Eccleston.
I knew she was around in 1881 and not around in 1901 but have never been able to find
a death registration. Now I see she was also dead by 1891. So I can concentrate my
search between 1881-1891.
Does any one know if there are any nonconformist Baptisms for the Bolton area? I am looking for the baptism of James Headdock/Haddock/Heydock & any other variant c 1825.
There is a possible baptism for him in the IGI in a Cof E church in Peel By Bolton but I have been advised to check the nonconformist records if possible
Many thanks to Ron, Sandra, Olive and John for
answering my post re: the above. I contacted the LEP
and was told " the film is broken". I have just this
evening emailed the Harris Library in Preston and
asked if they can help me and eagerly await their
reply, fingers crossed. I would like to check this in
person but can't because I live in the USA.
Do you Yahoo!?
SBC Yahoo! DSL - Now only $29.95 per month!
Is there anyone with access to the BVRI 2 who can do a lookup for me?
I'm after Philip Thomas WALSH born 1822 in Manchester. I believe his parents to be Philip Thomas WALSH and Mary/Maria SMITH. I believe this family to be from Waterford, Ireland originally and therefore probably Catholic.
Cronulla, NSW, Australia
If the offer is still on the table could you please look up a family for me?
It is an unusual name so there won't be many but....
Here they are on the 1881
Ann Jane PLASKETT born 1842 Workington,Cumberland age 39 not really a widow just deserted!
Elanor Jane PLASKETT born 1866 Workington age 15
Annie Bridey PLASKETT born 1870 Workington age 11
Margt. PLASKETT born 1874 Workington age 7
Barbr. Bowness PLASKETT born 1859 Seaton, Cumberland age 22 Visitor
living at 51 Hill Street, Toxteth Park, Lancashire
If you can give me all the Plasketts in Lancashire that would be great. There were only 4 families in 1881.
William, Catherine, John Edgar etc....but would be otherwise satisfied with the one family.
Thanks for your kind offer.
Audrey Plaskett McMillen
Me too, a thousand thanks

Please would SKS take a look at the Milnrow census -Piece #3831 Folio 113 or
John Travis born : 1 Feb.1870 or 1871
Clara Travis born : 8 Jan 1868
Amy Travis born : 15 Feb 1897
I need to verify this family which, I believe, is erroneously listed by the
surname Waris in the 1901 census.
I hope someone can help.
Margaret Davidson, B.C. Canada
is there SKS out there with access to 1871 census i am looking for
information on the following if it's not too much trouble
john julius CROMPTON born abt 1836
thomas christian CROMPTON born abt 1819 and wife MARY
both are from the MANCHESTER area(probably SALFORD) and john julius is the
son of thomas christian
Many thanks in advance
I have not been following this list closely, as I have been pursuing
another branch of my family tree elsewhere, so I have not really picked up
what might and might not be possible to search for in Preston in the 1871
census. I'm sure SKS will tell me if I am asking the truly impossible, but
I'm seeking the following families (details from the 1881 census):
Dwelling: 42 Spring Gardens, Preston
Richard HOLT M 48 M Clitheroe, Lancashire, England Rel: Head
Sarah Ann HOLT M 48 F Manchester, Lancashire, England Rel: Wife
Henry HOLT U 24 M Manchester
John HOLT U 22 M Manchester
Sarah Jane HOLT U 18 F Preston
Frances HOLT U 16 F Preston
Martha HOLT 14 F Preston
Mary Ann HOLT 11 F Preston
Ellen HOLT 8 F Preston
Sarah Ann HOLT 4 F Preston
>From the PoB of Sarah Jane onwards, it seems the Holt family was living in
Preston from ca 1863 onwards. They and members of the family appear to have
lived in Spring Gardens for many years.
Dwelling: 28, Malt Street, Preston
Isabella WILCOCK W 55 F Lancaster
John WILCOCK U 18 M Preston
Richard WILCOCK U 15 M Preston
William WILCOCK U 10 M Preston
I am seeking not only the above, but also the father (William) who, from
young William's age, should still have been alive in 1871. Richard (by now
married) and William were still living at 28, Malt Street, in 1891. William
senior was a brewer by trade, and the address is Malt Street - any
connection, I wonder?
Dwelling: 29 Smith St, Preston
Charles ALBERT M 53 M Preston
Ellen ALBERT M 48 F wife Preston
George ALBERT U 17 M Preston
Margaret E. ALBERT 12 F
Mary ALBERT 6 F Preston
Annie ALBERT 4 F Preston
The family was still living at 29 Smith Street in 1891.
Can SKS provide anything on these families in the 1871 census?
Ron (also formerly of Preston, so no surprise there!)
William Frederick KORN
The family are at 45 Kendal Street, Everton, Liverpool RG12/2949 Folio 101
