Query by Summers76

My Uncle Robert Taylor moved from Tyneside to live and work in Manchester..he married a Manchester lady and together they had two Daughters and one Son.
Robert was for many years a serving Police Officer with the Manchester Force. And also played in the Police Parade Band.
When Robert retired they moved for a short while down to Brighton.

Roberts parents were Michael and Ellen Agnes Taylor. His siblings were called Ellen jr, Katherine, Tommy (Thomas)

His mother Ellen Agnes (maiden name SCANLON) had two Sisters who moved to Portsmouth to live and work. The sister were called Sarah and Dinah.
If you find that you have similar details in your Family Tree, please do post a message.

If Robert Taylor was one of your relatives please post me a message.. It has been a good few years since I posted my original Journal and while I did get a positive reply no follow up or contact reply has been forthcoming, I have a number of family photos that I would like to share with Taylor cousins, and they in return will have rare family photos of my Grandparents taken by Robert Taylor snr, during his visits to North of England. Any information no matter how small will be of great value to my research . Thank you for reading my Journal

Hi Summers,

I rather think that we may be related. The Robert Taylor you refer to was my father, who sadly passed away six years ago.
On my father's birth certificate his father is Michael Taylor, address: Simpson's Hostel, High Lane Row, Hebburn.
His mother is: Ellen Lydon, formerly Scanlon. Address: 23, Prince Consort Road, Hebburn.
Mt mother has always maintained that my father's parents were never married and this seems to confirm it (at least at the time of my father's birth).
So, I think we share a grandmother in Ellen Scanlon/ Lydon/ Taylor.
I remember my father's sister Ellen (my auntie Nellie) and vaguely remember my father's half brother Tommy Lydon (although I only met him once in about 1963 when I was very young).
My mother (Robert Taylor's wife) is now very elderly at 86 and at present in hospital, but I'll try and find some more details from her about my dad's family.
Hope this is of some help or interest. If you want to contact me I'm sure I can provide more information on our branch of the family tree that may fill in some of the gaps.
Nice to meet someone who may be my distant cousin.

New message for Bob Taylor (manchesterlad) my cousin....your late Father my Uncle Robert was as we know a keen photographer..each time he came back to the North East he took a trillion photographs of the area, but most importantly he took photos of my late Parents and our Grandmother Ellen Scanlon- Taylor.

I would dearly like to get a few copies of any photos you or your sister Norma have in old family albums. One member of my family has a copy of the wedding certificate of our Grandparents, as they did get married.
