Hi Wirralians, I'm a Canadian in search of my roots so I'll be hanging out in the History section. Love to hear from anyone named Elmslie, Stirling, Broster, Woodward or Mort with an interest in genealogy.

Think there are quite a few Brosters living in Moreton?

Hi Snod, My Grandfather moved to Canada as a young boy in the early 1900's. He was born in Tranmere in 1907. His parents were James Elmslie and Beatrice Broster. His uncles were Alexander Elmslie and William Elmslie and his aunts were Maggie and Sara. All were born in Birkenhead between 1871 and 1883. I know that Maggie moved to Scotland and I am in touch with a cousin there. On the Broster side he had 4 uncles, George, Peter, Thomas and Edward; and an aunt, Mary. All were born in Bromborough between 1858 and 1880. I have no contact with anyone on that side. Wouldn't it be cool if someone scrolled by my post and recognized this family!

Beatrice Broster (and quite a few other local Brosters) are mentioned on this link:

http://www.uk.mundia.com/gb/Search/Results?surname=BROSTER&birthPlace=United%20Kingdom

The Broster name goes back quite a long way in the Bromborough area. As early as 17th Century.

You might also find the following of interest, as there appear to be a few others researching the Brosters of Wirral:

Geekus: Thanks so much for your suggestions. The trees at Mundia turned out to be the ones my cousin and I created at Ancestry a few years ago. Now I am busy copying the info, one person at a time, to a new tree on Mundia. In doing so, I have found a few lateral connections but nothing new that goes back farther than I have gone already. I read the link about 'farming Brosters' but I am not hopeful. all the brosters I have recorded have been millers, merchants and labourers. Cheers. J

Might be worth you leaving a message for 'Little Nest' on the Old Wirral web-site or try emailing if contact details are available. The person probably found details of many other Brosters whilst researching those in the farming community.

You could also try contacting the Family History Society of Cheshire:
