red mail HUGH BYRON 1807 -1884 born in Sorbie, Scotland
Hugh was my grandmother Agnes CorriganÂ’s (nee Byron) grandfather. He traveled down from Sorbie, Wigtownshire to Burton, Wirral, Cheshire between 1851 and 1856. At his time he had two boys John (b.1846) and Stewart (b.1851 in Sorbie). They had a girl Mary who died in 1856 aged 6. She is buried in Burton Church yard with the rest of the family. I presume that the reason they moved from Sorbie to Cheshire was the Irish Potato famine. This meant that there was loads of Irish immigration via Portpatrick, Dumfries and Galloway. The Dumfries Herald of 1852 reported that many local poor had been rendered jobless due to the flood of Irish immigrants who would work for pittances. Hugh, who was a farm labourer, obviously decided to try England for a job and probably came down via the granite boats that ran from Kippford 20 miles away from Sorbie to Liverpool/Wirral. The granite was used in the building of Liverpool Docks. Stewart stayed in Burton until he died in 1925 aged 74. He lived in a four roomed house with his large family. In one census one of Stewart's sons is living in his grandfather's house with Hugh and Agnes, presumably due to lack of space. John moved to Sevenoaks (Cheshire) where he was a gardener at Comberbach House. Most of his family also worked there as servants and a groom. He later moved to Northwich. I have photos of Hugh, his mother, Agnes his wife, Stewart and his family, John and his girls and other family snaps. I have copies of the census entries from 1851 to 1901 for the family. Please contact if you want details or if you have any local information.
