John's Birth.

We have not yet identified John's birth 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,
by me, George Monk, Curate."

John and Alice were clearly very keen to have a son named Ralph, giving three sons that name. On each occasion the child 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.

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).

John's 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.
