    Old faces

    Hello all, Well I joined only in January this year when Dizzy and other members helped me resolve some of my Wheeldon family history of Warrington queries, so not one of the "old faces". But thought would join in here anyway, even if only just to say hello for now, after receiving an "updates" email notification from the site. Since was last here, I've started inputting the Wheeldon family tree online at geni.com, so when I eventually finish it, I'll post a link to it on the Warrington Now and Then - History board. Bye for now, Cas
  2. Hello Dizzy and everyone, Not done much research this week, but got some more census images. So just a little update on my Wheeldons, (might be useful info for someone else googling for Warrington Wheeldons in the future) 1911 Warrington census ref - RG14 / 23132 / Reg Dist 459 /Sub-dist 4 / En.dist 2 / Sch.No.76 (Edwin Senior's widow Ann Wheeldon, and unmarried daughter Mary) 50 Norris St. Warrington. Ann Wheeldon / Head / Widow / Private Income / age 80 b.Cumberland Egremont Mary Wheeldon / Dau / Single / House Keeper (at home) / age 41 b.Lancashire Warrington number of rooms i
  3. It's OK I figured out how to get in to edit the above - and this. Deleted this
  4. Hello again Dizzy and Sha, Thank you so much Dizzy, I can read it all very clearly. It's wonderful to have this and will get me moving along with more research on my Wheeldon cousins!. Haven't a lot of time just now - off to babysit my grandsons in a minute - but needed to pop in to see this and drop a few lines, then will be back some time over weekend. About Edwin Wheeldon Junior's siblings - I don't know the Jackson connection yet (though Bradwell rings bells) - but won't be through his two sisters born in Warrington, as there were only 2 (as far as I can find) - Eliza Wheeldon who
  5. Hi Dizzy and Sha, Dizzy thank you so much for those admission registers images and information about Edwin Wheeldon Junior. Oh wow that's great! I had on census documents that he was born in Southport though two younger sisters were born in Warrington. (Edwin Snr also had older children from his first marriage - his first wife Sarah died 1865 at Woodchurch, Birkenhead, then in 1867 he married Ann Burrow in Plemstall, north west Cheshire, then they moved to north of the Mersey - must've been Southport first then to Warrington.) As yet I'd only reached the stage where had suspected Edwin
  6. PS - for interest, this is the 1872 newspaper cutting I talked about......... (hope this works!)
  7. OK figured out how to upload image

  8. Oh what fabulous old images Dizzy, thank you! They give a real "feel" of how it was in the old days, don't they. Especially that lower one - including the shop fronts, old style vehicles, pram, and the Charlie Chaplin look-alike on the left facing the camera! It was because of those posted by Evil Sid and bazj that I then was able to recognise the Woolpack pub on the photo on the History Society's page - which then led to these posted by yourself! You amazing people! Thank you all so much! Cas
  9. trying to upload an avatar image, but it's not working.

  10. Bazj, Thanks very much for posting the old image, that's a good view of it on both sides of the corner, isn't it. Is it OK if I save a copy of it? I'm trying to "officially" get a copy of the other one that Evil Sid directed me to too. What a pity it was demolished, a fine old building with character, unlike the replacement Woolpack you posted the image of. Yes, that looks typical of the 60s/70s type concrete boxes and does look pretty soul-less as Davy51 commented. I came across another old photo on the Warrington History Society site - quite a way down this page...... http://warring
  11. My pennyworth for info, in case any help - this is probably correct as I'd also registered with my outlook.com e-address then had the problems getting validated. Emailed the contact address also from outlook.com address, and no response after a long time. So then emailed later from my ISP address and that worked fine, as received response from Gary very soon afterwards. Cas
  12. Thanks very much Sid, Yes it does look on that old photo that's the Woolpack on the corner doesn't it, when compared to a modern photo of the location..... here at google maps............. https://goo.gl/cwwNr1 Now Specsavers & where Bold Street meets Sankey Street if I've got that right?. And with The White Hart still there on the opposite corner, also listed as another pub on Sankey Street on algy's 1871 list and from the sign on the old photo, it looks that was Tetleys - who I understand took over Walkers brewery who had already owned the Woolpack. That's great - I'll go and
  13. Hello I'm new here, so hoping I'm posting this in the right place. Somehow googled my way here whilst researching my Wheeldon ancestors, and was looking for an old photo of the Woolpack pub that was on Sankey Street. But doesn't seem to be any such photo online, does anyone know where I might find one? Noted this entry from list compiled by your forums member algy at his topic "Ale Houses, Inn's, Tavern & Hotels, Warrington 1871-1895. Pt 3" - from 1871 Worral's Directory........ Woolpack - 51 Sankey Street - Edwin Wheeldon I've been researching Edwin Wheeldon's story. He
  14. Hello, just a note to say thank you Gary for your email reply today confirming you'd now got me verified after I'd had difficulties registering at the forum because hadn't received the verification email. Cas
