My gr. gr. grandfather's name was Joseph DERBYSHIRE.
Joseph was b. abt. 1831, Cheadle, Cheshire, England. He married Hannah ADAMS who was born Oswestry, Shropshire, abt. 1832.
Joseph & Hannah had two boys: John DERBYSHIRE b.1859 and Thomas DERBYSHIRE b.1861, both in Rusholme, Lancs.
John DERBYSHIRE, [Joseph's 1st son] married Edith EVANS [b.abt.1866, Oswestry] in 1899, Denbighshire.
They had no children, but adopted a boy. Is it possible to find any details of adoptions in the UK?
Thomas DERBYSHIRE, [Joseph's 2nd son] married Annie LORD [b.1864 Manchester] and they had 5 children, one of whom was my grandmother, Lilian DERBYSHIRE. Lilian married Joseph Patrick FORD (an Aussie) & at the end of WWI, came to live in Australia with their son Benjamin.
Would like to share information & photos.
