John Braidwood

John Braidwood married Mary McKinsey, a widow whose maiden name was Mary Hesketh, at St Nicholas Church, Liverpool, on 20th July 1846. John, who was described as a labourer, was the son of John Braidwood, iron moulder. John's address was Bond Street, Liverpool.

Family stories, however, always said that the Braidwoods were an important family of butchers in Paisley, so it was a surprise to see John recorded as a labourer on the certificate.

Perhaps John worked for a relative when he first arrived in Liverpool until he had enough capital to set up his own business for, two years later, in 1848, he is recorded as John Bradwood, butcher of Currie Street, Liverpool.  By 1865 he appears to have had shops (or stalls) at 29 Currie Street and at 10 St Martins Market.

John's wife, Mary, had three children from her first marriage and they became part of the new family. Mary subsequently had another five daughters so far as I know. Shortly before John died (probably 1870), he was able to move his family to Breck Road, Anfield. After his death, Mary kept the business, with the help of her daughter and son-in-law Mary and Richard Baxendale, until she died in 1872.

John and Mary's first daughter, Mary Braidwood, was born in 1849, when the family lived at 8 Currie Street, Liverpool. In 1868 Mary married Richard Baxendale. It appears that soon after their marriage they joined Mary's father in business in some way and may have continued to run the business for her mother after her father died. Certainly in 1871 they are living at 29 Currie Street and Richard is described as a butcher.

After her mother's death, Mary's husband, Richard, became a warehouseman and the family moved from 29 Currie Street to 6a Wilbraham Street, at which time Richard became a clerk and bookkeeper. By 1901 Mary and Richard Baxendale and their family - they had six children so far as I know - had left the Scotland Road area of Liverpool and were living at 173 Walton Lane, Liverpool. Mary Baxendale died in 1919.

Janet Braidwood was born at 8 Currie Street, Liverpool, on the 29th November 1851, daughter to John Braidwood, a butcher, and Mary Hesketh. By 1861 the family were living at 29 Currie Street (in the Scotland Road area of Liverpool). Sometime before her father died (probably in 1870), the family moved to Breck Road, Anfield; then a largely rural area and, although the exact property cannot be identified, the address is later given as Cabbage Hall.

In February 1871 Janet Braidwood married William Salthouse at St George, Walton. The wedding was witnessed by Richard Baxendale and Annie Salthouse (William's sister). When the census was taken a few weeks later, Janet and William were living with Janet's widowed mother, Mary, and some of her sisters, at her mother's house on Breck Road.

William Salthouse was a police officer when he married Janet, but soon afterwards, according to his police records, he went into business on his own account as a leather warehouseman carrier. By 1881 the family were living in the newly built terraced housing at 38 Rydal Street, moving to 28 Rydal Street by 1891. Janet had eight children, seven of whom survived, and by the time the youngest., James Thomas Salthouse, was born in 1897, the family were living at The Willows, Everton. They moved again by 1901 when they were living at 4 Ash Leigh, a grove of large, old, houses just behind The Cabbage Hall. All of these addresses were in the same area of Anfield/Everton in Liverpool. 

The family then moved to a farm and smallholding at Green Lane, Ditton, near Widnes. William continued to work in Liverpool and commuted each day by train. At this time Janet and William's eldest son, also called William, was ill with TB and he died at Green Lane in 1906. Six years later, in 1912, Janet's husband William died at Green Lane, having suffered with bronchopneumonia.

Sometime after her husband died, Janet and any unmarried children returned to Liverpool. Very little is known about this period in their lives. The youngest daughter, also called Janet, married James Johnston in 1931 and moved to Woolton, where James was the first pharmacist. Janet was eventually cared for by her daughter in Woolton until she died in 1938 at the age of 84.

There is no evidence one way or the other yet that Elizabeth Braidwood is the third daughter of John and Mary Braidwood, but a child born in 1853 (as was Elizabeth) would fit in neatly between the other children.

According to the 1861 census, Anne Braidwood was born c1856, daughter to John and Mary Braidwood, in Currie Street, Liverpool. In 1871 Ann is 15 years old and still living at home with her mother, younger sister Johan and older, married sister Janet and brother-in-law William Salthouse.

The following year Ann's mother, Mary Braidwood, died and, for the time being, I have no record of Ann after 1871.

Johan Braidwood was the third daughter of John Braidwood and Mary Hesketh. Johan was born about 1858 and in 1861 she was three years old and living with her family at 29 Currie Street, in the Scotland Road area of Liverpool. By 1871 her father, John Braidwood, had died and she was living at Breck Road, Anfield with her mother, younger sister Ann, and married sister Janet and Janet's husband, William Salthouse.

In 1877, when she was about 19 years old, Johan Braidwood married Francis Luke; Francis, who was about 23 years old, was a bookkeeper and also a Methodist Local Preacher, born in Brazil, naturalised British Subject. By 1881 the family had moved to one of the large house in the tree-lined St Domingo Grove: Johan and Francis Luke had three children, Frederick, Florence and Francis. Also living with the family were Francis' brother, Richard Luke, who was a coalmerchant and Methodist Lay Preacher born in Brazil, naturalised British Subject, and Esther O'Brien, a young domestic servant from Liverpool.

Johan's husband, Francis, died young, at the age of only 34 in 1888. At the next census in 1891, Johan Luke is a widow living on her own means, she and her three children (now aged 12, 10 and 8) are living at 34 The Willows, Everton - not far from Domingo Grove - and again they have a young domestic servant, Rachel Ainsworth of Liverpool.

In 1901 Johan Luke, now aged 43, is still a widow living on her own means but now at a new address: 56 Domingo Vale, Everton. Living with her are two of her children, Florence (employed as a bookkeeper) and Francis (employed as a railroad forwarding clerk), three boarders (Archibald Jackson, a traveller from Scotland, Charles Ryland, a certificated schoolmaster from Runcorn and Charles Greenall, a certificated boarder from Preston) and Alice Moore, a young maid of all work from Liverpool
