GRIF­FITH AND PHILLIP­SON/Liverpool

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS -

Ed­ward Han­mer Murhall Grif­fith and El­iz­a­beth Phillip­son mar­ried in Liverpool on 15 March 1864. Their daugh­ter Mary Ellen was born in 1865. Ed­ward ap­pears in a Liverpool trade direc­tory for the same year as a land agent but then dis­ap­pears from view. In the 1871 census, Mary Ellen ap­pears to be liv­ing with her ma­ter­nal grand­par­ents.

Mary Ellen mar­ried John Cou­p­land in Liverpool in 1883 when she stated her father was de­ceased, but in 1911 she ad­ver­tised in the New South Wales Po­lice Gazette ask­ing for in­for­ma­tion about her father, who she be­lieved had died in Aus­tralia in the 1890s. Af­ter years of search­ing, I’ve still drawn a blank on Ed­ward and El­iz­a­beth. Can any­body help? Carol Walsh, Pre­ston, Lan­cashire
