About Thomas Ormroyde

Thomas Ormroyde was born in St Helens and worked as a Minor (according to his marriage certificate of 1850). He Married Maria Louise Knowles in 1850 and the following year James ormroyde was born. On the Marriage Certificate both Thomas and Maria are described as Minors under the column of age and signed with their mark of an x. Hence both required their fathers to endorse the marriage and this is where the record of the fathers comes from, namely James ormroyde ( Ostler) and William Knowles ( Fitter Turner). My Mother said that they lived on Birchfield road in the cottages between Wade deacon School and victoria road on the same side as wade deacon although I havent found any record of this. There is some evidence that they may have lived at curedly cross near fiddlers ferry powerstation. ( will pursue these theories further for clarification.

After a family of 9 with a high number of infant deaths and many years later maria Louise died and Thomas almost straight away remarried Mary Campbell.

In the 1881 census Thomas (60)and Mary (54) are recorded as living at No 4 Hughes.

Street in widnes. They lived in a 4 room house . Hughes Street was a small street which was at right angles to and ran between deacon road and gossard street. This street has been knocked down now but was behind what was the clothes store Calverts and Gossage Street.Hughes St is now the exit for the Albert Square Car Park onto Deacon Road. ( Gossage St is now part of the Albert Square shopping Precinct where the Main Post Office is). Interestingly at the same time of this Census Thomas's son James Ormroyde was living just a stones throw away at 48 Albert Road with his family of himself his wife and 6 children.
