I have been doing some digging into my family History and the 1881 census has one of my relatives living in Peel Street, Tranmere. This doesn't seem to exist anymore. Does anybody know where this was / what it's called now? Many thanks.

Peel Street used to run along the west side of the railway line, its centre was about Union Street.

It went from St Pauls Road to Farm Road (Which is roughly where the southern end of Quigley St is now).

Thanks for that - I just looked on Google maps and your description is easy to follow. Interesting stuff. I wonder where Ancestry.co.uk will take me next...

I'd be a bit wary of ancestry.co, MB. I was with them for a while and managed to trace my family back to 1760s-but it cost me a small fortune in certificates of Births, Marriages and Deaths. Good luck, though. :-)

I have strong historical connections with that area: Seafield House, Clare St. and Brougham St. Parents and grandparents. I've often wondered, what exactly was Seafield House?

Another snippet found, looks like it could have been used as a stable at one time.


When Elizabeth was born in 1852 they were living in Highfield Street, Liverpool. By the time of the 1861 census they were living at 2 Ruabon Street, Tranmere with children John, Samuel and Robert; no sign of Elizabeth. In 1867 when Susannah was born they lived at 65 Thomas Street, Birkenhead. In 1871 they were living at Seafield House, New Chester Rd, Tranmere where John was now a cart proprietor and in 1881 they were at the same address, John a team owner.
By 1901 Jane had died and John was living with his daughter Susannah and her husband Henry Evans at 20 Seabank Cottages, Birkenhead (RG13/3398). he was 71 years old, a widower and noted as a Master Carter.

How great is this, I was actually going to post about Peel Street today myself. I found out that my grandfather came from the Isle of Man, he lived in Ramsey. Looking up his marriage it shows he was actually living in Peel Street at the time of his marriage.
So my guess is, he lived in the Isle of Man, but when he was away, he lived here in Peel Street.
I knew roughly were Peel Street was, but it's actually nice to be able to see it on paper!!!
Thanks Everyone.

Thanks, Bert. My father was born at Seafield House, which belonged to my maternal great-grandfather (who I never knew). I see from that census that I had an uncle, Ernest, who was two years older than my father; never knew about him so I guess he must have died young.
Interesting that Seafield House only had six rooms; looks bigger than that on the map.
I remember visiting my great-aunts, Emily and Ethel. They lived on Dacre Hill. I remember that they had very dry biscuits, probably Rich Tea or similar.

Chris, I can tell you that a Mr Ernest W Kay died in Birkenhead aged 48 in 1953. no others from Birkenhead between 1911 and 53 I could see, or were you thinking of him dying younger than that.

Well, that's a mystery Bert. I guess there must have been a family argument, otherwise I'd surely have known him, or at least heard of him. I was at home in 1953 and I don't remember a funeral.
