Vera, you still haven't said how you connected to him.

Did you trace back to him through his children? If so, who were they?

If you're following a branch from another person, then who is that person?

(Please use the "add reply" box just below).

You have 'marked as answered', which conveys to board users that your query has been FULLY resolved.

As this is clearly not the case, may I suggest that you remove the tag..........otherwise no further help is likely to be given

Have you read the census info above?

Is it the RIGHT Thomas?

How do you get from John 1866 to Thomas 1804?

Let's start by getting a few facts........................

Well, Liverpool is what he said, so I'm afraid that's what you will have to work with.

We can't alter what was recorded

dear freind is there anyway i can find the district in liverpool for thomas also i dont know how tounmark answered to marie clare. vera

MarieCeleste Report 14 Feb 2013 19:03

Vera, unless you can find a baptism in the parish records then I can't think of any other way to find out the parish or district.

To remove the answered tick go to your very first post on here and there should be a button that says something like "mark this as unanswered" - click on that. The system is a bit daft in that if you mark one person's post as answered it then marks the whole thread - best just to avoid ticking anything!

Vera, the 1836 baptism that Reggie has posted looks to be your Thomas (parents' names and father's occupation) all agree with marriage and census. This site gives information about the Church:
