John Burrows



In Brief:


In detail:


Birth

We have not identified John's birth yet but he was probably born in the 1770s

John's Marriage (from the register of St Peter, Liverpool)

"John Burrows from the parish of Liverpool, Cordwainer, and Alice McDonald of the same parish, spinster,
were married in this church by banns on the nineteenth day of October in the year seventeen hundred and ninety five

[born 14th March 1809, christened on 7th May 1809 at Mount Pleasant Wesleyan Chapel, Liverpool. Buried 17th July 1811, St Peter, Liverpool.]

[born 13th November 1814, christened on 5th February 1815 as recorded at Leeds Street Wesleyan Chapel, Liverpool. Buried 21st May 1886, St Michael, Garston.]

John and Alice were clearly very keen to have a son named Ralph, having given three sons that name and on each occasion the child had died young. From this, I suspect that Ralph may have been John's father's name.
There was also another Burrows family in the area at the same time, attending the same chapel for baptisms. In this case, the father was Ralph, a tailor of Tithebarn Street in 1805 (Gores) and later in Scotland Road. Although I cannot prove it, I suspect that this may be John's brother.


Occupation and abode

John was described as a cordwainer at the time of his marriage and as a shoemaker on the baptism register for each of his children.
From 1809 to 1811, we know he was living in "Mary le bone" (now known as Marybone).

Death

There is no 1841 census reference for either John or Alice, so they are likely to have died before that date.
My belief (no positive proof) is that John and Alice moved to Garston, either with their remaining children or perhaps later, following Mary and Isaac.
There are burials listed in the register for St Michael, Garston, for an Alice Burrows on 19th December 1819 and for a John Burrows on 25th June 1833.

Mary's Death
Garston

I now believe that Mary died in 1868.
She was buried at St Michael, Garston on 4th March 1868.
Her address was given simply as Garston.

Richard Webb, widower

I cannot find Richard on the census after Mary died.
Richard Webb died in 1880 at Raglan Street. He was buried on 16th June 1880, aged 73, at St Michael, Garston

The Jones Family

Anne Webb, Mary's daughter had married William Jones on 13th December 1857 on the same occasion as her sister Sarah Webb married Thomas Abbott
This was at St Nicholas, Liverpool, and each couple acted as witnesses for the other's marriage.
Anne, spinster, of full age, gave her address as Park Lane and her father as Richard Webb, labourer
William Jones, batchelor, of full age, labourer, gave his address as Norfolk Street and his father as Thomas Jones, Stone cutter

Their first child, Sarah Anne, was baptised at St Michael, Garston on 7th February 1858, but sadly, she died aged 4 and was buried at St Michaels on 30th October 1862

I have not identified the couple on the 1861 census, but on the 1871 census they lived in Chapel Road, Garston:

William Jones age 36, labourer, born Cheshire, Bebington
Anne Jones (wife) age 35, born Garston
Mary Jones (daughter) age 11, born Bootle
Jane Jones (daughter) age 8, born Garston
Richard Jones (son) age 4, born Garston
