I would be interested to find more on James' siblings, .they were all born in Frodsham, thats all I know about them. Does anyone recognise these names? Regards, Jill.
My 3X Gt.G/parents Richard & Sarah ILLIDGE (nee GREGORY) married c1770/71 in Tarporley, lived in Frodsham. They had eight children, four of whom died young. One of their sons Thomas, born 1786 wed Rebecca BOSTOCK & were my 2xGt.g/parents & also lived in Frodsham. I would love to find any descendents of the above. Some of Thomas's sons moved to St. Helens in Lancashire & were boatmen on the Sankey canal & had large families. I have found some descendents but I know there are more out there somewhere - so please do get in touch.
red mail Burkhill's of Frodsham
I'm looking into the Burkhill side of my Family Tree. It seems through census searches that Frodsham was the main place for them to reside and looking back into others trees they may have been there since before the 1600's. I would love to find out more, however I'm at a loss where to start to make sure I am following the right line. I believe my branch of the Burkhills may have moved from Frodsham around the time of my Grandfather, Russell Burkhill was born in 1908 to Chorlton, Manchester, but this is only heresay. I would really appreciate any help inparticular the best way to start looking into the Parish Records as I no longer live locally. Thanks

red mail Sutton Family & Millstone Inn
My Sutton ancestors ran The Millstone from at least 1812 to 1847, and then to 1861 by another branch of the family. The oldest traced ancestor is Peter Sutton who had children baptised in Frodsham from 1730 onwards, but I have not been able to trace his marriage or birth, neither of which seem to have taken place locally. Any info appreciated. Sutton was a common name locally, and it is possible to trace several other Sutton families. Donald

red mail Mary Hayes 1842
Looking for my great great grandmother Mary Hayes, born 8 March 1842, father Peter Hayes. I think this is the right family; they lived on The Quay, Frodsham. Peter was an agricultural labourer. His wife Ellen (nee Evans) was from Hawarden in Flintshire and was 8 or 10 years older than Peter. Children James, Ellen and Mary. Perhaps an older sister Betsy. In the 1851 Census there were also two lodgers, Elizabeth Palin (18-husband at sea) and Edward Read (29 - journeyman carpenter). Mary was married 1863 in All Saints, Runcorn, to Thomas Percival. Witnesses at the wedding were John and Jane Percival. Three sons born Church Street, Frodsham, and baptised at St Lawrence, Frodsham: John (my great grandfather), William Henry and Peter, before the family emigrated to the USA in 1871/72. In the 1871 Census 29-year-old Mary is head of household (perhaps Thomas had already left for the US), and also in the house is Ellen Beryes, age 16. My guess is that this surname is a badly written "Hayes", and she is a cousin or niece. Any help in confirming that this is the right Hayes family (there are many!) would be much appreciated. Would also like to trace back beyond Peter and Ellen if possible.

Thomas was a quarryman. I do not know where he was born or an exact birth date. Am trying to trace back through Peter and beyond.
