Hi, I'm new to this...
I'm looking for family history pointers, I'm related in someway to the Todd farming community in Scarisbrick, Ormskirk and surrounding areas.  I believe I am connected to Boundary Farm, Turning Lane, Scarisbrick and would be very interested to confirm this?  I've reached a brick wall, ha!
Thanks
Gary Todd

Hello and welcome to our website and forum.

Hi Dotty,
Thanks for your reply.  I have tracked him back to Station Cafe, 59 London Street, Southport from 1940-60.  I would love to trace a photo of the cafe, or anything really, that would give me a visible insight in to my grandfather's fish shop during this period up to his death in 1960.  
I think I have 'correctly' followed Peter's line back to Paul Todd 1818, through James Todd 1877 and 1842 at Boundary Farm, scarisbrick.
Do you have any idea where to start to obtain olf photos of the cafe from this period, being directly opposite the railway station I am hopeful that there may be something stored out there.
Any help would be gratefully received.
Thanks
Gary

Hi Gary,

Since the Atkinson Library's refurbishment all Southport's local history
collection has moved to Crosby library.

You could email them and ask if they have any photos of your father's fish
shop.  (Was it just fish or was it a fish and chip shop?)

Ok thanks Dotty.  I wondered if there was likely to be any London Street snaps of around 1930-60 while he was there.

Hi Gary,

That is why I suggest you email Crosby library to ask them if they have any photos of London Street shops in Southport that are available to peruse.

Several years ago there were plans afoot to put archived photos in batches and offer them for sale on DVDs.  I have no idea how far along they are with this project.

Let us know how you get on.

Dotty  

PS

There are filmed archives of Southport Visiter which are available to peruse in Southport Library.  The Southport Guardian archives are available to peruse at Crosby Library.  You haven't said if you are local to this area.

There is also a website called 'Southport Past' - you might find something on there or at least ask if anybody has any pictures.

My great grandmother was  living at Eastbank Street working as a servant to John L Todd- a confectioner and his wife Amelia Todd and their child in 1891. There were also two boarders employed as bakers... I wonder if anyone has any memories or photos or connection to this Todd family. I am interested to find out how my Great Grandmother came to be working there and how long she stayed and what life was like!

Best
Denise

Welcome to our website and forum, Denise.

I would think that at the very least you could post your g.grandmother's name and also some names of her parents, siblings and other family members you may know of and where they lived.  That would give us more of an idea to be going on with...

Then you could look through all the posts for Todd's to see if you
can find any information already available.

What researching have you already done?  Where do you live?  Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Regards

Dotty
