red mail Richard Evans
Further to previous message. Richard Evans death has been found in GRO index Sept Qtr 1940 vol 8b page 1283 showing age as 75 leading one to believe that he was born about 1865. One Richard Evans born 1865 when certificate ordered proved not to have a father named Charles. Richards marriage certificate showed him born in Welshampton and there is one record of a Charles with a son Richard and other children that might be him, except that I know Richard had a brother Lloyd and that family on LDS shows no record of Lloyd. Ellesmere was the registration district for Welshampton and was told only one Richard Evans showed up there between the years 1864 and 1869 and he did not have a father names Charles. Main question remains if anyone in or about St.Helens could find out his mothers name from St.Peters church or funeral home it would be the convincing piece as to who his family was.
red mail Richard EVANS in St.Peters Churchyard
My grandfather Richard EVANS died in Sep 1940. His marriage certificate shows father as Charles but no mother. Would cemetery or funeral records show his mothers name? Think a brother Lloyd attended funeral but find no record of him. Would like to know his age at death and mothers name.
I am looking for the family of James Henry Harrison born 1920 he lived in St Helens at 106 Lyon street possibly with his family prior to marrying Elizabeth Maddison in 1945. He served in the kings own royal regiment between 1938 - 1946 and was a glass maker when a civilian. The marriage was not a success and he may have married again and settled elsewhere his father was called Henry and he died prior to 1945 he was a coal hewer.

red mail Beck of Prescot and St. Helen's, Lancashire
Looking to share info with the Beck family. My granduncle Maurice Wyatt (born 1891, Whiston, Lancs.) married Ann Beck ( born 1893, at Sutton Heath, Lancs.) in 1915 at Prescot. My focus of research has been the Wyatt family back to 1730.
red mail Pilkington Family
I am putting together a family tree and I would like to find members of the Pilkington family. I have got as far as John Pilkington born 1786 died 1872 and married someone called Ann born in 1791, they had four children, Coupe, Hannah, John and Durand? (not sure of the spelling), I would like to go back another one or two generations, to find a link with Pilkington glass (if there is one! my nana says her father was a part of the company). My nana was a Pilkington before she married. Does anyone have any information about Johns parents? Names, Year of birth, or even agood website where i can find the info! most of this family were born in and around the St. Helens area of Lancashire, Except my nana, her father Robert, moved to the southwest in Bridgwater, Somerset
