Mary Ellen Ainscough b.1879 Dublin

Thanks to Patrick Morris for this update on Mary Ellen Ainscough, Dublin
Mary Ellen Ainscough was born in Dublin on the 2 June 1879. The family lived in James's St , Dublin. James' s St is beside the Guinness brewery where her father 
Henry Ainscough worked he was a journeyman cooper. He was married in 1858 to Margaret Calderbank of Chorley, Lancashire. I think the Calderbanks are from Charnock Richard in Lancashire where the name is most common.

Henry Ainscough* and Margaret Calderbank , had the following children; Charles Henry Ainscough, born in April 1859 in Stepney, Limehouse, London, It would appear that Charles Henry died young in London, James Ainscough born in March 1861 in 4 Church Row, Stepney, London who is my maternal great grandfather, Charles Ainscough also born in Limehouse in 1864 and living in Gill St Stepney. Jeremiah Joseph Ainscough born in Dublin in April 1870, Margaret Ellen Ainscough born in Dublin Oct 1868. Hubert born 1877 in Dublin. All of the boys appear to be in the cooperage trade  The family at this stage were living in No 3 Behans Cottages, still beside the Guinness Brewery in a house which I remember but since pulled down.

The family of Ainscoughs hailed from Chorley, Lancashire. Henry Ainscough *  was born in Bengal St , Chorley , to James Ainscough and Winifred Rosbothom both his parents were born circa 1816 and were married in the parish of Standish 25 August 1834. In the census of 1841 they are living in Bengal St , Chorley his brother Jerimiah is there also aged 4.

They moved to Liverpool where we find them in1851 census with the addition of Elizabeth, James, Mary, who are both same age could be twins!. In 1861 still in Liverpool  but James does not appear in addition they have Hubert R and Margaret.

In 1881 I found Winifred Rosbothom widow living in 188 Kirkdale Road with her son Hubert R, Elizabeth Lang nee Ainscough  Winifreds daughter, Elizabeths children : Mary, James, Elizabeth, Thomas, Joseph all schoolgoing. Margarets profession and Huberts described as partners in butchers shop.

In 1891 Henry Ainscough and Margaret Calderbank are back in 29 Chaucer St , Liverpool with their daughters Winifred and Ellen. Winifred born Liverpool in 1872 and Ellen born Dublin 1879.

My maternal great grandfather James Ainscough (born London see above) married Mary Ellen Deane in Liverpool 30th October 1882. They had  eight children Henry , James, Joseph, Charles, Mary, Margaret, Annie my grandmother, and Winifred. James is described as a barber, died at 17 years of age, Henry died aged about 33, Joseph and Charles went to work in the Guinness brewery.  My great grandfather died age 41.

Hope this is some help to you. I would love to be in touch with long lost relatives. If you have any photos would you please send me a copy. As you can imagine this has taken years to compile but well worth it. I am now a qualified professional genealogist.

Please keep in touch
