Cheshire Roots

Updated January 11, 2001

I am trying to trace the family of Catherine Youds who married a John Wilkinson in Birkenhead, Cheshire late l880`s. They had several children including Samuel and John. I know that John was a Boiler Maker for a firm of shipbuilders.

I am also tracing the family of Rebecca Griffiths who lived in the High Heath, Pelsall area of Walsall, Staffordshire, UK. Her father was a William Griffiths an ironworker who married an Elizabeth Gorman. Rebecca moved to Birkenhead, Cheshire,UK

I am also trying to trace the family of William George Owen who married a Mary Davies in the Shawbury, Wem area of Shropshire, Uk. I know that they had several children including my grandfather Thomas John Owen and George Owen, but that after the death of Mary the children were separated and sent to live with relatives in the Birkenhead area or to an ophanage in Shropshire, from where we believe some were sent to Australia.

I also have a connection to the Didsbury family who lived in the Tarvin, Duddon, Kelsall, Delamere area of Cheshire, UK
I have found a connection to the Robb and Nicholas family and there is also a link to the name Walley and Astbury

I would love to hear from anyone with possible links and of course I would be only too happy to pass on what information I have.
