Molyneux of Garston /Woolton. Flour dealers. 

 

Hello, I am trying to find out more about Roman Catholic Thomas Molyneux of
Garston who was born circa 1760. He married Maria Appleton circa 1782, their
first child being born 178s and baptised at St Mary's RC Woolton. The baptism confirmed the mother's name.

They had a
son Carol [Caryll] Molyneux born in 1803 who was a flour dealer in Liverpool.
I need to find the marriage of Thomas and Maria Appleton but I fear it falls
in a period when the marriage register has not survived, although they should
have also had a C of E marriage but I cannot find one. Ultimately I need to
find the parents of Thomas. I wonder if he was also a flour dealer but I do
not have access to any trade directories for the period 1780 - 1826. I
believe, but not proven, that he is buried at Garston St Michael 23 Aug 1826.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm sorry that we haven't had any luck with our searches for these two names in a marriage.  It might be worthwhile approaching the Liverpool Record Office and asking what they might have on microfilm or in the archives for Woolton at this date.  https://liverpool.gov.uk/libraries/archives-family-history/family-history/

I would suggest that you don't get fixed on the Roman Catholic aspect of things, it might be that one or other of the parents were of that persuasion, but when it came to a marriage they may have gone along with the other.

I wonder if he was also a flour dealer but I do
not have access to any trade directories for the period 1780 - 1826. 

I believe I have already sent you entries for the directories of that period, however for Woolton that is really outside the Liverpool district and you should perhaps approach a more local library to see whether they hold more specific records.
