thanks ive found them thats great :-)

first time ive used the genes community and i am VERY VERY impressed

my MONK family are a nightmare but i have now got elizabeth and her 7 siblings recorded

the earlier generation is even worse, travelers, lots with similar names, cousin marriages and missing from census records

but they are so exciting

john monk is living close to catherine bulger in 1881 and they get married that year

But Denis was with wife and children in 1861 in Liverpool - as previously posted, even though the name seems to change between Bolger and Bulger.

The one you've found was given 6 months for indecent assault:

Dennis Bulger
Date of Trial: 15 Oct 1860
Trial Year: 1860
Location of Trial: Durham, England
Sentence: Imprisonment
Crime: See Image
Date of Execution or Release: See Image

Don't think he is your Dennis.

as the Monk family in Preston between 1882 & 1889 seem to flit between Jennett Street and (Back) Saul Street I wonder if ii is worth someone with an FMP sub doing an address search in 1891

Lawrence's marriage was actually announced in the Preston Chronicle

and

in the Liverpool Mercury of 14 Aug 1849 he was in the Lancaster insolvent court

"Lawrence Monk hawker and earthenware dealer formerly of Lathon near Ormskirk"
