red mail Jane Jackson b 1870 Burslem, Staffs
I am trying to find information regarding my Grandmother, Jane Jackson, b 1870 Burslem, daughter of William and Margaret(Grocott) Jackson. She married Edward Green,1887 at Cobridge Church son of Herbert and Ellen Green,possible they had two or three children, who seem to have died at an early age, Edward also died early in the marriage. I have found her still as Jane Green on the 1911 census,with my Grandfather in Birkdale, Southport, with their three children, the eldest my mother, but have not been able to trace her in the 1891/1901 census, their is a Jane Green in the 1891 cenus living with the Green family in Burslem, but I believe this is the wife of William Green, he also married a Jane (Franks) born the same year. I have my grandmothers death certificate, she died in Preston, Lancs, her name is stated as Ellen Jane Rooney, age 74, widow of Michael Joseph Rooney, my grandfather, although I don't think there was a marriage as they had both been married previously, Ellen was the name of my Grandfathers first wife, a number of documents I have have been altered to read Ellen Martin (Michaels first wife) but my mothers birth certificate gives Jane Rooney, formerly Jackson as her mother. Any help with this brick wall, would be greatly appreciated, traced both families back but cannot establish where either of my grandparents were during the decade 1891/1901, or how they came to be in Southport, Lancashire, as she was born in Staffordshire and her family are still there, and Michael born in Roscommon, Ireland. Thanks again, Norma
red mail 55 Macclesfield Street - Institution - 1911 Census
Having looked at the source documents I now understand more about the institution. The head Annie Leese is described as single, born ~ 1881, Hartshill, SoT employed as a foster mother by the Poor law Guardians. These were the managers of the Wolstanton & Burslem Poor Law Board who raised local taxes to provide poor relief and run the local workhouse. Children under 15 years were latterly provided with out relief rather than being put into the workhouse. It appears that 55 Macclesfield St was operated by the Board as a boys home / orphange and at the 1911 census had 12 inmates all boys aged 5 to 13 years from 10 families including my grandfather. Annie ( Ann Jane Leese ) was assisted by her sister Harriet - see the 1911 census entry for the Leese family at 622 Hartshill Rd. SoT. One gets the impression that the sisters took it in turns to do sleep-overs at the home. The property appears to have been built in the period 1901 to 1911; the house numbers did not get to 55 in the earlier census and Annie and Harriet both had different occupations then

red mail Local History Sources
My name is Veronica and I am from Australia. I am a writer and I am currently researching the potter Thomas Parr from Burslem Staffordshire. I already know that Thomas was christened March 1 in 1829, he married Eliza (born 1831) and had at least twochildren - a girl (can't find her yet but she married a 'Durber' and had a son Benjamin in 1873) and a boy Thomas jnr born 1865. Thomas's parents were William and Dorothy - William was a potter too - from a long line of potters in fact. Thomas sold out of the pottery in 1870 to William Kent who continued in business until the 1950s. In 1881 Census the Parrs (and grandson Benjamin Durber) were living in Adam Street Burslem. I am eager to find out if there are any local history sources or associations who would be able to either point me in the right direction for searching from AFAR or be able to undertake research for me (paid). I would like to know birth date, apprentice information, marriage date, death date - anything I can get myhands on about Thomas Parr in fact. Hope to hear from you, Veronica
