Trying to find Burgess

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Hi, I'm looking for my grandad Joseph Burgess who was born in Cheshire around 1898. He met my grandmother, Esther in Appleby and they were married around 1919 and lived in Stockport. Esther had been in an orphanage where she was given the name Trackles, and was taken in by a Mrs Jackson who had a daughter called Margaret. She later went into service in the house of Nicolas Montserrat. Joseph became a gardner. He had brothers called Harold, Wilfred and Stanley and sisters called Jessie and Annie I'd be very grateful if anyone had any information about my grandparents. Thankyou Chris
