Re: Cropper/Harrison -- Liverpool 1830s/1840s & later
Hi Pam and Peter:
I have done a little more research on your branch of the Croppers.Here is an update from the 1881 Liverpool census:
202 Arlington Street
Kirkdale, Liverpool, Lancashire
Head:John Cropper37 yearsBorn Liverpool
Wife:Mary E. Cropper34 yearsBorn Liverpool
Children:Martha Cropper10 yearsBorn Liverpool
John Cropper8yearsBorn Liverpool
Albert Cropper5 yearsBorn Liverpool
Mary E. Cropper3 yearsBorn Liverpool
Clara Cropper1 yearBorn Liverpool
So, it looks like John and Albert were not twins.
The IGI cites a John Cropper who was christened October 1, 1845 @ St. Peter, Church St., Liverpool, as having been the son of John Cropper and Elizabeth.This is probably the christening record for your John because the churches registers in Liverpool are pretty well documented on the IGI.I still do not know if this branch of the Cropper family ties to mine.
Hope that helps you in your Cropper research.
