LANCASHIRE - 'STRANGE' AND DERIVATIVES

1. Newspapers and Journals
From Liverpool Mercury etc ( Liverpool, England ), Friday, August 22, 1834; Issue 1216.
Married
On Friday, the 8th instant, W. E. WHITEMAN, Esq., of this town, to Miss Eleanor STRANGE, daughter of the late David STRANGE, Esq., of Ellesmere, Salop.

2. Just a Snippet

Anthony Hickson (who is researching HICKSON and derivatives) said on 24th April 2004 I have Betty STRANGE married Henry HICKSON in 1841 in the town of Church in Lancashire.
(1841 Q1, Betty STRANGE Reg District Blackburn, Vol 21, Page 28 - GRO Index - Ed)

Gideon STRANGE married Martha ROBINSON (no dates or location) his son Thomas C STRANGE married Martha Ellafair COX (no dates or location) and his son Joseph Wright STRANGE married Flora Fitula BUCHANAN (no dates or location) and his son Freddie Plummer STRANGE (1889-1964) was the husband of Ethel HICKSON

Thomas Peate was my uncle through marriage although I never knew him. I remember his son Thomas James Strange who I knew as Uncle Jim and his wife Auntie Alice. Jim, although he was my father's nephew, was about the same age as father hence me calling him Uncle. As a child I visited him regularly.

3. Families

2.1  From Joanne Strange (jos[at]cardgeotechnics[dot]co[dot]uk
The Stranges of Lancashire include my grandfather Thomas James Strange and my aunt Barbara Strange, but I cant find contact details for the person who was doing this research. I would be happy to contact him to bring the family tree up to date, as this branch of the name dies in my generation, as both my father (also Thomas James Strange) and his brother (Kenneth) only had daughters.

2.2  From Claire Stanley nee Wilcock (clairestanley(at)blueyonder(dot)co(dot)uk on 12 Aug 2004 Thomas Peate was my uncle through marriage although I never knew him. I remember his son Thomas James Strange who I knew as Uncle Jim and his wife Auntie Alice. Jim, although he was my father's nephew, was about the same age as father hence me calling him Uncle. As a child I visited him regularly. My information has been mainly through research as I only became interested in family history after Mum died; Father died in 1944.

From Joan White (jgregory[at]blueyonder[dot]co[dot]uk) November 2006
I am not directly related to STRANGE but found that my grandmother's sister Isabella Thomas married Alfred F Strange in Toxteth,in 1902 (check bmd for Liverpool) they can be found in 1901 census in Paddington, Liverpool. I saw on (Isabella was living in Toxteth before her marriage). Isabella was born on 6 Nov 1882 in Liverpool and was baptised 26 Feb 1883 at St Peters, Liverpool.  She was known to the family as Bella and named after her maternal aunt Isabella Mitchell.  Isabella Thomas's parents were Charles Thomas b 1856 Liverpool and Sarah Eliza Mitchell b 1860 Whitehaven; they were married 12 July 1880 in St Johns Old Haymarket, Liverpool. The family lived in Palm Street, Liverpool/Toxteth Park.  In the 1901 census, reference RG/3946, living at 38 Paddington (note they were not married until following year tut tut).  Some family gossip; My grandmother, Sarah Eliza (Isabella's sister) told me that Isabella and Alfred's son was a window cleaner who was killed when he fell through a glass roof at Liverpool university.  Isabella and Alfred also lived at 26 Poplar Street, Everton in 1926 (which is where her sister's child Herbert, my uncle, was buried from).  We would love to hear from anyone related.
