Re: Charles Ratcliffe b.1808
In Response To: Charles Ratcliffe b.1808 ()

You mention a place called Hodden in Flintshire which I have not heard before.The 1851 census for Liverpool indicates Ann came from Rake Farm Flintshire. This farm is in a area called Hawarden ( pronounced Harden) Flintshire.

A family from that place is headed by Samuel Parsonage and Mary Ithel. Among their children seen in IGI is Ann Parsonage 1808.

1829 has a marriage between Charles Radcliffe and Ann Parsonage in Liverpool.

The 1841 census in Liverpool shows at Lemon Court:-

Charles Radcliffe 50 ?
Ann 35
Charles 11
John 14
Catherine 6
Margaret 3
Richard 2mths

The only additional information in the census tells that Charles, Ann and John were not born in the county. in this case Lancashire. There is a John 1826 in Shrewsbury that may fit but this was before the marriage and he may be the product of another arrangement.

Later census shows the age of Charles to be:-

1851 , 43
1861 , 55

There are a couple of names in the north of the island that may fit but you may be lucky if some information can be found in the marriage entry of Charles and Ann.
