Letter to the Editor - Family History question

Published: 9th July 2010 16:47

Letter to the Editor

Letter to the EditorI have been researching my family history and find that my great-grandfather, John Jones, born c1860 from Yorkshire, was a Shoe & Boot maker in Bridge Street, Neston, in 1901, and was working from home in Raby Road in 1911.

His wife, Mary Ellen, would perhaps have been involved with the Ladies Day walk.

Would anybody have any more information about the family,  including my grandfather James Edward Jones born 1885, who worked at the Neston colliery?

Many thanks to Jerry Harris, Rob Ward and Edward Hilditch for their help on this. Some information has already been emailed through to Caroline, and the latest from Edward is reproduced below:

1. Copy of page from accident book at Neston Colliery. "13 October 1911 James Jones (Cobbler) Haulagehand* aged 22 Raby Road Neston Monday night 9th inst, scratched side with iron plate slipping off air vessel. Fred Buckley present - reported to R. Durham. Official report by W. Evans."
(*This word is hard to read.) (The age does not fit, but the rest of the information points to this being the James Edward Jones born 1885)

2. Notes from Kelly's Directory: 1901 John Jones, Boot and Shoe; 1911 Raby Road; 1914 High Street.
