Jane Booth - Information Sought About My Great Grandfather James Fitzpatrick

Hi, my name is Jane and I am looking for information on my great grandfather James Fitzpatrick.

On my grandfather's birth certificate (John Willis Fitzpatrick) - born 13th Jan. 1877, Cutthorpe, Brampton it states his father James was a coalminer.

James married Lucy Dean in Manchester, 1873 they had one daughter Lottie Ann while residing there.

Lucy's father was John Dean, married Ann Skevington in Selston, Notts, Ann died and he remarried Hannah Stuart.

In 1881 it shows Lottie Ann & John Willis as living with their grandfather's brother Samuel Dean & his wife (also Lucy), in Portland Row, Selston.

Despite numerous searches for James I have been unable at this point been able to ascertain what become of him.

Did he die in mining accident? Their mother Lucy worked as a servant in1881 census, it shows her status as married.

I know this is a bit of a "long shot" but I run out of research options at this point in time and was wondering if you have any work records for James and / or clues as to where I may access relevant information.

Kind Regards

Tom Senior, My Great Grandfather And Wilfred Senior My Great Uncle Worked At Upton Colliery

I'm trying to find information about two of my ancestry, Tom Senior who was my great grandfather and Wilfred Senior who was my great uncle. I'm told they both worked at Upton colliery. I believe Wilfred at some point was an under manager both were born in Hemsworth. Tom senior was born 1882 and unsure of Wilfred's d.o.b it's around 1917

Thank you

Cumbria Mines Middle 1850s, Perhaps 1870s, Around Arlecdon, Frizington, And Whitehaven

Hello

I am emailing from Australia and am hoping you may be able to help or at least point me in the right direction.

We have been researching my husbands family who moved from Cornwall in the middle 1850s, perhaps 1870s to work in the mines in Cumbria.

The family, based on census records lived around Arlecdon, Frizington, and Whitehaven. Is there some way I can find out the name or names of the mines they would have been employed by.

I am happy to pay for the research.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Regards

Looking for a picture of an old poster, the MINES RESCUE poster for INGS ROAD Wakefield

Hello
 
I don’t know if you will be able to help but we are having trouble finding an image.
 
My friend is trying to find a picture of an old poster, it was the MINES RESCUE poster for INGS ROAD Wakefield. The image was a miners profile in black and white wearing a miner’s helmet and lamp, she thinks this was her husband’s profile and as his 70th birthday is coming up she would like to find this poster and frame it for him. She thinks it was some time in the 1970’s. We have tried to Google the poster using various headings but unfortunately we are not having any luck. Do you have any idea where we might find such a poster?
 
Thank you
Sue Mitchell

Unfortunately as you will be aware the coal mining industry has almost gone.

The 2 Yorkshire pits left are covered by the Knottingley station. You could contact them as it is possible that papers etc were transferred from Wakefield.

Mansfield Woodhouse Mines Rescue station is still operational and covers the Nottinghamshire mines as part of their duties.

The poster you are looking for was probably a local one.

It is possible that a copy has been kept by an ex Rescue man.

It would be an idea to put an advert in the local newspaper that covers Wakefield.

A lot of mining memorabilia such as books etc have been given to the National Mining Museum at Caphouse, Overton near Wakefield. The Librarian there is very helpful and may be able to help or direct you.

I hope this information will be of use. I am sorry that I cannot help further.
