Sure there will be more that will be added to this list-

1. The Wallasey Hermit/ Frederick Krueger

The people of Wallasey clubbed together and paid for his funeral so that he did not have a paupers funeral. he was buried on 13th March 1909.

2. Peter Watts

One of Wallasey's earliest recorded murders. He was a stranger in the parish and 'done to death' in 1695

3. Captain Thomas Lambert

He was captain of the ship 'Mary Betsy' which was shipwrecked and sunk in heavy storms on 26th October 1820. When the vessel was driven ashore and began to break up onlookers just stood and stared. The Captain drowned and he plus four of his crew were buried at St Hilarys.

4. James Harrison

james Harrison was born near Lancaster in 1820 and he came to join his brother Thomas in the Liverpool Shipbrokers firm of 'George Brown and Harrison, in his twenties. Eventually the two brothers set up the Shipping Company of Thos and Jas which became known as the Harrison Line. The line was one of the most famous cargo ships in the Mersey.

In 1851 James lived in New Brighton and he and his wife came to live in 'Quarry Bank' in Rake Lane, before moving to the 'Laund'. They later went to live in kent where he died, aged 71 in 1891.

He was buried in St Hilarys where the old tower was made into a mortuary chapel in his memory.

7. Randulphe Geeste

Buried at St. Hilarys on 20th febuary 1595 as 'Schoolmaster at Wallazie'.

The old school house was set just off Breck road, below the site of the mill, built in 1799. Prior to that- somewhere around 1560, when children had some sort of education, they were taught in the church.

There would probably have only been half a dozen kids who would have gathered close by the font and had their lessons.

o.k.....I'm going as fast as I can read!! lol

last year some of us visited the open heritage day. Really looking forward to this year...

I had 'bits of paper' with names and dates written on for graves to find at the next heritage day. Thats what gave me the idea to do this thread. Keep all the info, in one place -with the additional Brucey- Bonus that other interested people can also access!! laugh

Rude, Have you been to the Rake Lane cemetary? They have formed a 'friends of' group and they take you on a guided tour, I believe there are some interesting names on the graves.
