Brief biography

John William (2) Livesey was born around 1873 to parents George (2) Livesey and his second wife Priscilla Fagan. His birth reference may be [Birth Index: Salford 8d 117, 1873 (Dec) - indexed as "Livsey"].

The 1881 Census finds him at age 8 living in his parents' household at 2, Robinson's Court in Salford.

The 1891 Census finds him at age 18 living at 18, Wood Street in Salford in the household of his step-father William Ashworth, the third husband of Priscilla. His occupation is unclear in the record.

In 1896 he married Emma Farrington [Marriage Index: Salford 8d 120, 1896 (March)]. They married at St. Stephen's Church in Salford on February 15th 1896. The register describes him as a bachelor aged "22" of 47, Hodson Street and occupied as a labourer. Emma is described as a spinster also aged "22" of the same address. His father is described as a hawker and hers, Joseph Farrington, as a bricklayer. The witnesses were George Siddall and Margaret Siddall, whose connections are unknown.

Emma was probably born at Rotherham [Birth Index: Rotheram 9c 585, 1873 (Dec)]. The 1891 Census appears to find her living with her parents at 5, Brown Street, Salford. Her birthplace is given as Rotherham and her father Joseph's occupation as bricklayer.

The 1901 Census finds him with Emma and three children living at 3, Waterloo Place in Salford. He was working as a foundry labourer. Emma's birthplace is entered, probably in error on her husband's part, as Salford.

Nothing more is currently known of John William (2) or of Emma.
