John Liddell, Sarah Fisken and Hodgen Liddell Family

Journal by Seanybear

The reason that i am researching my family history is so that i can find out about my father family background. My father James Liddell was born in Scotland in 1940 and passed away at sea on the 31.01.1979 while i was 3mths old and i never got to know him. All i know is that he was one of 8 children to John Liddell and Susan Gilligan. John Liddell was the son of John Liddell and Jessie McKay.

Where does my Liddell Family History start

The earlist members that i have are John Liddell and Sarah Fisken whom i have no information about apart from their son Hodgen Liddell who was born in 1814 they say he was born in England but that i'm not sure about, Hodgen died on the 04.09.1888 in 45 Pollock Street, Govan, Glasgow, Scotland. He married Blair Burnett Scott Thynne who was also known as Maragaret Blair Scott/Thyne. Blair was the daughter of William Thynne and Blair Scott

Census records show that Hodgen living in three different addresses 1841, Tradeston, Glasgow, Scotland,
1851, Pollock Street, Glasgow, Scotland, Occupation Flesher-Poulterer and
1881, 30 Govanhill Street, Glasgow, Scotland, Occupation Butcher.

It is also recorded that in 1871 Hodgen was a Flesher Journeyman. Together Hodgen and Blair had 8 children 4 girls and 4 boys

Blair Scott Liddell b 22.08.1839,
William Thynne Liddell b 20.01.1842,
Robert Liddell b 1843,
Agnes Scott Liddell b 02.04.1849,
Hodgen Liddell b 21.09.1850,
Elizabeth Liddell b 07.06.1852,
Sarah Liddell b 07.01.1855
Hodgen Liddell b 15.08.1861

As far as i know only 4 of the children married and had families of their own, they where Robert, Agnes, Sarah and Hodgen 1861.

If anybody has any family information regarding Blair Scott Liddell, William thynne Liddell, Hodgen Liddell 1850 and Elizabeth Liddell it would be very much appreciated so that i can add it to my Family History and Tree

Hang on a minute - " Old Faithful " ( my oldest computer ) is talking to me ( Red lights flashing like morse code ) She has nailed it - excuse me while I praise her - ( " yes I know -all though you're old you are better than the new young thing . OK Ok !! don't push you're Luck " H-umm- n very jealous computer but an excellent mate - Where were we - Yes from " old faithful "
Of interest to you It is a very old name in Scotland and goes back in
( records to before 1244 AD in Scotland ) Originally the tribe was celtic from just inside the border of Germany in the " Hunsruck " forest and high country - they were there a while -( good hunting / water etc ) after travelling from just inside the Swiss border near Lake ( Lac de Neuchate )When the arrived in Scotland from Europe their name was " De Sules " from the border of France/ Belgium . The first original Record was in 1244 AD - when " Lord Nicholas de Sules " built two castles ( not sure of building or won them in Battle ). He Occuppied- in Roxburghshire - " Hermitage Castle " he married a " Muriel Lobdel" in 1279 and they had two sons . The sons went and lived in " Liddesdale Castle " and both became known as the Sir John Liddell & Sir Robert Liddell " of Liddsdale . from then on the name became Liddell. One other thing the American " Liddells " start from the family of " William Liddell who died in a coal mine accident in Uk - His bereaved wife and two sons migrated to the States ( thats another story ) - Regards -edmondsallan
