Ellams of Liverpool - 19th C
I am looking for the family of my maternal great grandmother Sarah Ann ELLAMS born Liverpool circa 1857.I believe her to be a daughter of ? Ellams and Esther (nee ?)Her parents ran a large pub/hotel in Regent Road Liverpool.
Sarah Ann married my great grandfather William Gray circa 1878 probably in Liverpool - he was also born in Liverpool but was of Cornish parentage from Redruth, Cornwall.The 1881 census shows William and Sarah running a restaurant at 72 Regent Road - they have 3 children Mary Hannah aged 2, James H. aged 1 and my grandfaTHER William Thomas GRAY aged 7 months.At no.71 Regent Road is the Regent Hotel run by Esther Ellamsand a son and 2 daughters.
Later William & Sarah returned to Redruth, Cornwall where the rest of their children were born.Am anxious to find out more about this Ellams family and to trace any living descendants.
