Subject: [CHS] Please explain Wirral
Date: Thu, 11 Nov 1999 11:27:26 -0600
Dear Members: Since I joined your list I have discovered the area of
Wirral. What does this distinction from Birkenhead mean? My
gggrandfather Matthew Jones, Master Tailor and Draper, lived at 20
Price Street, Birkenhead in 1881. I have sent for the 1871 census
and it was in Wirral. Now I am really confused. They were Welsh
and obviously lived in a Welsh enclave. Your knowledge is required
for a lost Canadian.
Thanks in advance.
