You didn't give any dates which is rather important. Here's the marriage to give us an idea of dates:

DEWAR Alexander Barrow F 8e 1105
RYLES Elizabeth Barrow F. 8e 1105

According to the 1911 census Alexander & Elizabeth had only had 8 children, 7 still living and she was 47 at the time. Did she have 4 more children at that age?

There's this one in 1871 with father Joseph ( but he's fireman ) , and daughter not born Bury so not sure it's the same one who married Alexander Dewar


Joseph Ryles 50
Alice Ryles 48
Eprriane Ryles 15
William Ryles 8
Elizabeth Ryles 6


Have you got Elizabeth's marriage cert?

Hi Janet

Dates of exactly when and where Joseph and Daughter Elizabeth was born would be a great help to us.

But on the 1911 census Phyllis is the youngest child, aged 10 and Elizabeth clearly states that she had 8 children, 7 still living, 1 had died.

Still no idea what you're looking for..............please clarify

and please answer the questions...........particularly those about where you got your 'info' about Joseph

You state that he was a bootmaker in Blackpool.....but give no evidence to support this

Elizabeth was born in Staffordshire, and married in Barrow..........so where does Blackpool fit in?
