[quote="the top of audely street"]stevie porter was living in pleasant st bootle.died a few years ago married to nellie gentry.

mary ? porter was living on derby road bootle and was married to norman yardley and she used to live in the prefab on marsh lane opposite the coal yard.

i am sure a barby porter now lives in bootle village , i think her family was from bedford road end.

Stevie was my nan's (Jean Raven nee Porter) brother, his wife Nellie passed away last week.

I heard their dad (Stevie snr?) was a bit of a Bootle rogue.

Am looking for anyone who might know or have known any members of the Porter family from Bootle.

My grandmother Annie Keatinge lived at 20 Boston St in 1910 when she married. Her mother remarried a William King Porter so Annie was according to the census Annie K Porter.
Annie had two other sisters that I know of, Charlotte and Ellen Porter

I do have a couple of photos that if I post someone may be able to identify them for me.

Jan, how are you? Are you able to help me out here again?

I also have some problems posting the photos

Can I get help please

Hi Catherine,

You can read my guide on how to post photos on our Bootle forum using the link below...


Or simply add an image from your computer in your reply by clicking on 'Add image to post' which displays bottom of the message subject.

It displays as a thumbnail in your post but displays full size when clicking on it. This is hosted on Postimage.

You just need to be able to know where the photos are on your computer for uploading.

A quick tip is to put the photo/s on your computer monitors main screen IE: Desktop if using a computer to quickly find them for uploading.

If you have multiple images for uploading create a folder with a specific name on your Desktop to identify where they are and then upload them from this folder.

Hope this helps.
