Brief biography

Hannah (1) Livesey was born in Warrington in 1875 to parents Joseph (1) Livesey and his first wife Alice Cartwright. Alice had herself been born in Warrington. The birth certificate [Birth Index: Warrington 8c 181, 1875 (Dec)] states that she was born on September 14th 1875 at the house where Alice (the informant) was then residing, at 5, Stamford Street. The certificate spells the family surname as "Livesy" throughout, and describes Joseph (1) as a general labourer.

The 1881 Census finds her at age 5 living with her widowed father at 22, Wood Street, Salford in the household of her grandfather George (1).

The 1891 Census finds her at age 15 living in the household of her (remarried) father at 14, Quay Street in Salford.

She may have married in 1898. The GRO has a reference [Marriage Index: Salford 8d 146, 1898 (June)] to a "Hannah Livesey" marrying in that year. The groom was Thomas William A. Tudor, son of a wire polisher Edward Tudor. The 1891 Census finds Thomas William with his parents and siblings at 101, Moston Lane in Blackley. The 1901 Census finds him with his wife Hannah and two children living in Blackley and describes his wife as born in Warrington. However, a potential problem with the 1898 marriage is that the register describes the bride's father as a labourer "John Livesey", so there currently remains an element of doubt that she was indeed Hannah (1).

Nothing more is currently known of Hannah (1).
