red mail Henry PITTOCK & Sarah MCINTOSH
My great great grandfather was Henry PITTOCK and according to the 1881 census he was born around 1850 in Milford, Yorkshire which I take to be now called South Milford near Leeds. In 1873 in Liverpool he married Sarah MCINTOSH (born c1853 in Dundee) and in 1881 they were living at 23 Napier St in Barrow in Furness before moving to Motherwell in Scotland with their (at that time) 5 children around 1887. The children were James (c1874), Sarah Ann (my great grandmother - 1875), Betsy (c1877), Henry (c1879), Isabella (c1880) all born in Barrow in Furness, and finally Donald (1887) born in Motherwell. Donald died in 1939 in hospital in Glasgow, and Sarah Ann died in 1962 in Motherwell. Both parents had died by 1939. Henry was listed on census as an Iron Smelter or possibly Steel Hammerman. Family legend has it that they were of Romany origin but that is extremely doubtful at best. Does anyone have any relevant information on any of the PITTOCK family? Thanks in advance.

They married Oct-Dec 1912 at Barrow and had two daughters ELSIE BARBOUR (1912) and my Nan RHODA BAROBOUR (1915) both also born at Barrow. At the time of RHODA's birth they lived at Vickerstown, Walney, Barrow. HARRY BARBOUR is noted on their birth certificates as 'Blacksmith (Journeyman)' but this is the only solid information I have. It is possible that HARRY may have died quite young, maybe as a casualty of WW1 as POLLY remarried when her daughters were quite young and brought the girls up with her new husband who was called COPE, a methodist minister, at Hawcoat, Barrow. Any help at all will be vey much appreciated, Kerry
red mail HALL & STEVENS family(s)
My GG grandparents were Samuel and Annie Hall who were farmers (poss.address - Norncoth(?)) within parish of Abdon at Stoke St.Milburyne, Shrophire. I have a copy of the baptism cert. for their son John Hall who was baptized on 1 July 1837, cert. is signed by 'H.Wilson Rector of Abdon'. We know John was married twice - he had 2 children to his first wife (Samuel and Sara). After the death of his 1st wife he married Eliza Jones on 11 August 1868 at St.Johns Church, The Pleck, Walsall. They had a further 7 children one of which was my grandmother Emma. By the time Emma was born (1883)they were living in Barrow-in-Furness, Lancashire (now Cumbria). Emma married Charles Henry Stevens and had 4 children Maude, Elsie, Gladys and Charles Henry (Jr) - who was my Dad. They lived in St.Lukes Street most of their married lives. Does anyone have any common ancestors? Would love to hear anything which could be relevant. I am now living in Australia and would dearly love to pass on family history to my own grandchildren. Joan
