Hi Robert... I noticed your message on the Helsby Gen Forum today.It was posted a while back but I've done most of the other lines of my family and have just turned my attention to the Helsbys, who are actually on the "fringe" of my tree. In that my uncle married Eva Helsby, daughter of Alice Widdows and Thomas George Helsby. Thomas George Helsby was born in 1861 and christened on 28July 1861, St. Peter's, Liverpool, LAN. His parents are Thomas Helsby and Ann?
Other children of the Thomas and Alice Helsby marriage are Elizabeth Alice Maud Helsby born 28 May 1883 (known as Alice) her husband is John Holt, their only child - Cyril who died in 1991. Ada Helsby born 1 Nov 1886. And Walter Helsby who I haven't researched yet. I got this information first hand from my cousin in Manchester. I have a photo of Alice with her sister Eva if you want me to scan this for you. Hope this helps.Keep in touch. cheers Anne McManus - Sydney, Australia.
