OK, here goes:-

BRADLEY - 18-19C in Lancaster, Halton, Melling
BROXTON - need the birth of Mary Anne, known as Polly, about 1884 around Wigan
BUCKLEY - need marriage of Joseph to Eliza WOOD before 1863 - somewhere?
CAVANAGH - desperately looking for Desmond Michael CAVANAGH, my father's
cousin, for last two years. Born 1925 to Michael CAVANAGH, licensee of (Harry)
Liston's Bar, Manchester, and wife (Eleanor) Lillian, nee FEENEY. Married 1950
at Whalley to Lesley Ann HIGSON; address then was Bull Inn, Burnage Lane,
Manchester and occupation was journalist. National Union of Journalists say he
left them in 1951 when he went to East Africa. DSS Traceline tell me he is
currently registered with a doctor in UK but won't tell me where and won't
pass on a letter/message. Frustrating isn't the word!! He is the last living
relative on my father's line.
CLEMINSON - Ann; 'of full age' at marriage in Lancaster in 1850; father
Matthew CLEMINSON, labourer. No baptism found in Lancaster. Where did they
come from?
