Hi, my great grandfather Thomas was born in Ireland in 1884 but I can’t find any details of where about.
He ended up in Liverpool working as a dock labourer. Not sure when he moved.
He married Martha Ellen Fisher, nee Jones (Wodow) in 1915. On the marriage certificate he said he was a widower? and his occupation was Steeple-Jack! His father was also called Thomas and was a Porter.
They had 3 children, Mary Ann,b 1919 (my grand mother) Martha,b c1922 and John, b c1923.
Any help or advice on how to go about finding where he was born in Ireland (If he was) would be gratefully accepted.
Thank you
Dave
