Phoebe O'Neill and her mother, Esther O'Neill

Postby daron.newman » Sat Dec 29, 2018 5:50 pm

I'm trying to trace the whereabouts of my Grandmother, Phoebe O'Neill for the period 1926 - 1939. I can track after after 1939 but before then I've had to rely on Nazareth House Records.

Phoebe was born illegitimately in Kirkham Lancs in 1910 and died in 1968 in Wigan. Her mother was Esther O'Neill and her father was supposedly Ernest Walsh, Secretary at Blackpool Working Men's Club. She had a brother, Ernest (b.1908) who was put into Nazareth House Ditton in 1914, aged 6.
Nazareth House Archives advise that Phoebe entered Nazareth House Lancaster in 1911 when she was a year old. She left there in 1926, aged 16.
They further advise she was at the Convent of the Good Shepherd in Ford, Liverpool between 1929 and 1934, having spent 3 years living in Lancaster, Morecambe and Ormskirk.

Esther died apparently in South Sefton in the early 90's.

I am trying to find anyone who knows anything about any of the convents, or if anyone knows anything about what happened at these times to Phoebe, Ernest and Esther O'Neill.

Thank you.

No relation, but my surname is O'Neill and my mum's maiden name was Walsh. ;)
