Not sure if you're still watching this thread? If you are please drop me a message, by reply to this or as a PM. I have a lot of Merriman information and most started llife in Warwickshire, Staffs, Worcester, West Midlands (birmingham) and the like.

To the kind person who's grandm;other is Mary Elizabeth Merriman. Big apologies - I've been trying to answer you all this time by trying the add button!!! I''m very slow to grasp and equally slow to dare to try another button as I usually get lost! So sorry to be so very late. I don't think we are connected. John's son goes to Grimsby and everyone from there stayed for the most part. Why he came to this aunt and how she was connected I don't know - she had a boarding house in Flower or Dial Square we're told. There's two censuses I have on John with his family in 1841 and with his sister in 1871 just prior to his ,marriage there. There's no other facts I can definately tie into this picture yet.
Thanks again

Hi

My grandmother was named Mary Elizabeth Merriman and was born in Birmingham around 1880. She had two sisters that I am aware of - Emily and Rose (who worked as a school cook and died in a Josiah Mason's cottage in Birmimgham). There was a brother Gilbert who died of TB at the age of 21. Most of the family, except my grandmother, were placed in the Princess Alice Orphanage prior to their father re-marrying. My grandmother died in 1947. Her daughterm my mother, Lilian Merriman married in 1940 to Ruper Stanley Parker from Nottingham - he died in 1957. My mother died in 1992 in Bristol.

MY MOTHER'S FAMILY WERE MERRIMAN FROM GRIMSBY. HER GRANDFATHER WAS BORN IN NOTTINGHAM TO JOHN MERRIMAN 1829 CASTLE DONINGTON LEICESTER AND ELIZA ELEY 1840. DOES THIS FIT WITH YOUR FAMILY.
