I am trying to look into my relatives the Wood family.
I dont have much information on dates and locations which is frustrating.
The information i have so far is Lavinia Wood had two sisters that i know of - Tabitha
Wood and Hannah Wood.
Lavinia married Wilfrid Halpin and are my great-great grandmother and father. They had
three children Wilfrid, Connie and Muriel.
Connie and Muriel never married and had no children. Wilfrid my great grandfather married
Eva Clarke. There child my grandmother is Irene, married my grandfather Albert Shaw.
My grandmother Irene has said that a lot of Eva Clarke's family is from the North East
but im not sure if that means that Wilfrid Halpin met her there. I know my grandmother was
born in Birmingham and lived there at a very young age, then moved to Colne, Nelson near
Burnley and then eventually to Blackpool.
As it appears that they have moved around a lot its difficult to pinpoint where Wiflrid
Halpin and Lavinia Wood were from and so difficult to know where to look.
I looked on the 1901 census and found Lavinia Wood 14 and Tabitha Wood 17 in Nelson,
Lancashire but no Hannah Wood or Wilfrid Halpin.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and it would be good if it matched up with anyone
