red mail Winifred Whatmough
I am looking for information on my aunt, Winifred Rozella Whatmough (maiden name Bull, born Kentish Town, London on 8 July 1909)who married Edgar Whatmough in Blackpool 2Q 1941. Edgar was in the merchant navy during the war and there is a record of him marrying Mary Preece in Sep 1958 in Blackpool and dying in Blackpool in Oct 1969. There are two identically indexed death entries for Winifred in March 1996, Blackool & Fylde (I have ordered DC), one giving her surname as Whatmough, the other as Coombes. At the moment I presume she divorced Edgar prior to 1958 and possibly remarried a Mr Coombes, but I cannot find a second marriage entry to confirm this. If anyone has any information on either Winifred or Edgar, I would very much appreciate hearing from you. Many thanks .. Peter

red mail My confusion deepens
3 April 2011 The more I get into this, the more confused I become. On my mother's birth certificate, from Blackpool, Lancashire 1922, her father is listed as Edward Francis Leigh, her mother as Florence Leigh formerly Dawson. However, on her marriage certificate and while I was growing up, she claimed her maiden name was Parkinson. Mysteriously, on her death certificate, her father is listed as James Henry Parkinson and her mother as Florence Bruce! This leads me to believe that my mother may have be born out of wedlock and perhaps adopted or put into foster care. Because of this, I am having trouble finding information on her and her siblings. Any clues as how to unravel this?

red mail Parkinson/Leigh/Dawson
Everything about exploring my British family's history seems to be similar to peeling an onion. As soon as I think I have one layer sorted out, another mystery arises out of the next. One of the more mysterious aspects is that all the time I was growing up my mother talked about her sister Betty. I can't seem to find any information about Betty despite numerous Internet searches and letters to the Lancashire Council. My suspicion is that she was a foster child taken in by my grandmother. All of my British relatives are dead, so I'm finding it very difficult to construct my family tree that I so dearly want to pass onto my two children. If anyone on this message board could offer me any clues or answers, I would be greatly appreciative. Thank you.
red mail Margaret Parkinson
My Uncle Ted was born in 1903, preceding my mother's well-documented birth in 1922. This feels a bit unusual, but it is all I am able to find. I do have certified records of Ted marrying Lucy Jenks in 1935, but no certificates of divorce or death for Lucy. I believe my Uncle Ted (Theodore) married his second wire in 1948. I have wedding photos dated 1948, but can't seem to corroborate them with any marriage certificates. His second wife appears in the photos as Margaret. Any help unraveling this confusion, would be appreciated.
red mail Looking for family history
My mother, Florence Cecilia Parkinson, was born and raised in Blackpool. I'm looking for genealogical information about my maternal grandfather. On my mother's birth certificate her father's name is listed as Edward Francis Leigh and her mother as Florence Leigh (formerly Dawson). On her death certificate her father is listed as James Henry Parkinson and her mother as Florence Bruce. I have no idea what my grandmother's given name was. My mother came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA in 1946 from Blackpool. She met my father, John Schuster, an American, when he was stationed at Squire's Gate airfield during WWII. In 1976, my career took me to California where I now live. My mother, Florence, was born February 1922 and died February 1988. Her sister, Irene was born born September 1924 and died October 1991. I don't have a lot of solid information about her brother, Ted. From what I've found online, I believe he was born June 1903 and died sometime in 1962. My wife and others have suggested that Ted, may in fact, be short for Edward or Edwin. I am terribly afraid that I've wasted a great deal of my time chasing dwn the wrong person. It always seemed odd that there was a nineteen year gap between the birth of my mother and her brother. My mother always referred to him as Ted, so I just assumed it was short for Theodore. All of this has led me to the decision to start the search for my mothers brother anew. This time I will begin the search looking for an Edward Parkinson and see if more plausible birth dates arise. Finally, there is her sister Betty, about whom I know almost nothing. The mystery of my British lineage is further complicated by the fact that my mother had two siblings each of whom had a different biological father. Her sister was named Irene and was married to Donald Stead. Her brother was named Ted (or Edward or Edwin). My mother and her siblings have all passed. Irene had one child, Susan, who died in 2002. I'd appreciate any help.
red mail Flight Sergeant Ronald Frederick Houghton

Blackpool Church 1935
I hope someone can help. I am researching a family tragedy that happened in Blackpool in 1935. I would like to find a church that was mentioned, but only have the following information: "Walk along the Front until you nearly reach the Pleasure Beach. In a side road is a little church - you can see it from the Prom." Does this mean anything to anyone? Does anyone have a photo of the church if it is no longer there? Thank you.

red mail Carr, Blackpool
My greatgrandfather, Robert Carr (Jnr), apparently ran (or owned) a pub in Blackpool in the early 1900's. I wonder if anyone knows anything about this. He apparently married a lady there (no name known) and he died sometime after 1940, in this late 80's or early 90's. In October 1940, he and his wife lived at 32 Stamford Street, Watson Road, Blackpool. I have been unable to find any information about his remarriage or death. Can anyone help me.
