Liverpool

St Matthew and St James Parish Church (1875) on Mossley Hill is near Sudley House in southeast Liverpool, England.

Stanley Park (1870) in Liverpool, England, is named for Lord Stanley of Preston, Governor General of Canada from 1888 to 1893 and donor of the Stanley Cup. In 1911 my great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Stanley lived nearby at 10 City Road.

In 1911 my great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Stanley and three of her children, Laura, Florence, and Robert, were living at 10 City Road near Stanley Park in Liverpool, England. The property has been redeveloped since that time.

In 1903 my great grandparents David and Mary Elizabeth Stanley were living at 15 Nicander Road, Liverpool, England. My grandfather Arthur Andrew Stanley (1892-1969) would also have lived there.

In 1916 my great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Stanley was living at 85 Ash Grove, Liverpool, England. The address appears on the Attestation Paper of my grandfather Arthur Andrew Stanley (1892-1969) when he joined the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force.

In 1901 my great grandparents David and Mary Elizabeth Stanley were living at 156 Leopold Road, Liverpool, England. This was the childhood home of my grandfather Arthur Andrew Stanley (1892-1969).

In 1900 my great aunt and uncle, Hilda Victoria and Frederick Bevan, died as infants while living at 68 Empress Road, Liverpool, England. Many of the houses on this street are now rented to students from nearby Liverpool University.

The birth certificate of my grandfather Arthur Andrew Stanley (1892-1969) lists 13 Heber Street, Liverpool, England, as the family residence. The street no longer exists but this photo from the Liverpool Record Office shows how it appeared in the 1960s.

Census records show that my great great grandfather John Stanley (1820-1879) was living on Greek Street in Liverpool, England, in 1861 and 1871. His son David Stanley (1854-1912) was there in 1877. No buildings from that time remain on Greek Street.
