22/10/2007 JAMES BIRD

Posted by Maureen Carroll, Ontario, Canada

I am researching my ancestors in the Shirehampton area and would appreciate suggestions where I might look for more results. JAMES BIRD married ANNE PENNANT in Liverpool in 1803. Shortly after the marriage I found them living at GILSLAKE Farm, in the Parish of Almondsbury. A few miles from that property was another BIRD farmer which makes me wonder if they are related. Why would James Bird move to Glouc otherwise? On my Grandfather's birth certificate it states he was born in Shirehampton - I gather Almondsbury and Shirehampton are fairly close. Is St Mary's Church located in Shirehampton or Almondsbury or are there two St Mary churches? Thank you for your interest. [ref: ]
