) and I was interested to see that very close to my William FRANKISH, 'bootmaker' at 515 Stockport Rd, Manchester, was another Frankish, a John M FRANKISH at 535 Stockport Rd. shown as a 'boiler inspector.' It seemed to me that they might be related so I went looking for him in the ususal places and had no luck. However, he may show up somewhere, sometime. In the same directory, in the same area,there was also a Geo FRANKISHCollector for the Inland revenue( I bet he was not very popular :-)) ) .
What I did find out by looking on the IGI was that there were a heck of a lot of men born in Yorkshire called John FRANKISH.
