Why is it so hard to find death of Samuel Hallis ? I know he must have died 1911-1921 and he lived at 1 Greenfield st until his death ; His will would also be interesting if i had the refs to send off for it .
A GR member with a family connection told me his wife Mary's maiden name was Healey but I think that may be her sister's married name as a friend on ancestry says Mary Hallis was nee Kerfoot and she died in 1919 ...pity she didn't give me the reference .

i found a possible father for the workhouse boys
in 1851 census there is a William Holl b1806 who unfortunately is a pauper in Hindley Workhouse proffession (former labourer) .
in 1861 there is a William Holls aged 55 a widower and a labourer b.Lancs but I don't know how to check it is the same one .

Thanks rootgatherer so that is the wrong Edward ;you've saved me the price of a wedding certificate .
the other one married a lilian alice hird (b1876) in 1897
In 1912 he left london age 40 to work as South African railway official is that a natural progression for a blacksmith ?
In 1936 aged 64 he comes to Greenfield street (where his sister martha h Evans still lives at no 3 with her daughter+ husband Lucy +Tom Cookson

seems unlikely that he had any children ....

I suppose if I get his death certificate that may say 1960 aged 84 died Birkenhead .

whichdocuments shall isend for ? nana maisie's brother Edward could be in everton in 1911 married to Ellen with daughter Ethel+ neice maizie E.
or could be unmarried childless Edward Hollis who went to south africa to workon railways (found by an Ancestry friend)on returning to GB in 1930's he lived in Greenfield St . is that too much of a coincidence ,nana got married in 1924 from no.3 .

a Mary Hollis was in the workhouse for girls in 1841 census She would be sister to John ,Robert + EDIT THE HOLLIS boys(not Samuel Hallis) . I know their father was William in prison in1841 , but I have to go back further as i have William's potential brother Edward but can't check without knowing their parents name .
It's an amazing co-incidence as a GR member said his Sam woodruff Hollis was actually adopted aged 11 by Edward Hollis who was 59 at the time .

I.ve looked on freebmd for Maisie Hollis b1909 but not found her

re wierd spelling of Lercy for Lucy Broadfield ,my mother remembers that robert broadfield was illiterate his wife taught him to read from the bible so a combination of his pronunciation and lack of knowledge could have led to that the Maisie/jessie spelling alternatives in 1911census but is more likely to be a mistranscription from handwriting to print .(thanks for spotting that Andy)

This is the spelling on my grandmothers school certificate +her marriage cert .
Also i have this spelling for Martha (Samuel's daughter)on a certificate from"girls friendly society 1885 which she pased on to Nana Maisie as a treasured item .
Why do his Son Edward + Wife Ellen, daughter Edith and their neice Maisie b.1909 all have the surname Hollis with O spelling ??
