I have Lomax records back to 1640 for the Widnes area thanks to someone else's research I have to say.This is on Brothers Keeper which is shareware I believe but I don't have the original software discs.I will look into how I could let you have a full copy as soon as I can.Your Lomax family names and their ancestors are part of this record.you would need to confirm all the information I have is correct obviously as I have not seen all original records myself.
Harry Lomax married Catherine Burgess 9 June 1924 - 6 childrenFrank, Harry, Doreen, Iris, Joan and Donald.I assume Joan who married Wilbur Brown 11 November 1950 is your wife's line.
Harry Lomax was born 17 Feb 1901 95 Hurst Street West Bank (my family lived at 101 Hurst Street) He died 2 Sept 1971.My notes say he was a retied Cooper.
Harry's father was Thomas Lomax born before 14 June 1865 and baptised 1 August 1886.He died 10 Sept 1939.His mother was Margaret Ann Christie born before 1869 and died 16 june 1935.Thomas and Margaret were married1 August 1886.
Thomas's parents were Thomas bef 15 May 1840 and Mary Ellen Jackson bef 21 May 1838.They married 9 April 1860.
Thomas's parents another Thomas bef 1 sept 1811 and Mary Fenney Bef 1814.Married 29 July 1833.My line comes from these two through their son Richard (born John) who was my GG Grandfather.One of 11 children
Parents another Thomas bef 1788 and Hannah bef 1789.Married 1810.
I have some further ancestors on this line back to 1640 though the line needs confirmation.
