ALICE ON MERSEYSIDE

MOTHER'S DAY IN ENGLAND WAS IN SPRING, BUT DOWN UNDER IN AUSTRALIA  WINTER WARMERS ARE THE NECESSARY GIFT OF GIVING TO HONOUR OUR MOTHERS. 
I HAVE NOTICED THAT THE NAME ALICE IS COMMON ON THE GREAT GRANDMOTHER BRANCH WHICH AROSE FROM THE NORTH WEST OF ENGLAND. HERE IS WHAT I HAVE DISCOVERED ABOUT THEIR HER STORY.....

Today I am free to follow my curiosity about other belief systems, and follow my curiosity like the character Alice in Wonderland. I was delighted to find on my internet ramblings an ancient Celtic Goddess ANU from the Middle East who became Saint Anne, the Mother of Mary. She was a Christianised version of ANU/DANU but was still revered by the Celtic ancestors around Munster, Ireland and Mersey-side!


This is the Mitochondrial DNA truth! 


1. Victorian GG ALICE WOOLLEY OF FARNDON, CHESHIRE 
Way before ALICE IN WONDERLAND was published in 1865, by Lewis Carroll, Alice was a favoured girl's name. It is likely the name was given by Alice's father, a Farmer at Tattenhall - Thomas Hughes, with respect to his mother - ALICE ECCLES.

                  
 2. 5th gg Gran ALICE ECCLES born Formby 1774.
FORMBY FLOUR MILL for Eccles/Hughes families
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHEN I SAY CHESHIRE?
Yes, ALICE  was from the home of Cheshire Cheese/ Cheshire Cats/
Eccles Cakes!

Alice Eccles married Richard Hughes, a fisherman from the sea-side town of Hoylake. 


THE FISHERMEN WERE VOLUNTEER LIFE-GUARDS

In the Winter of 1810 Hoose/Hoylake, there was a boat in trouble, so the crew on call went out to rescue it, but a huge wave took their life-boat instead.

Alice Hughes/Eccles/Rymmer relatives would have been used to going to family and neighbour's funerals. Now in one sweep, Alice had lost her husband Richard, brother-in-law Joseph and son Thomas.
When she was 57yrs she married JOHN SMITH a neighbour of many years. Hopefully they were a comfort to each other. Alice Eccles/Hughes/Smith died in 1844 age 67.

                                     3. Alice Rymmer 1744-1787

 Alice Rymmer was my 6th Great Grandmother, A Mariner's daughter. Married a Thomas Eccles in Formby 1765 - 9 kids. Alice's grandmother on her mum's side was Alice Sutch.

4. LADY ALYCE DE REDDICHE, STOCKPORT, GREATER MANCHESTER  - Following the trail to 11th Great Grandparents, an unexpected touch with Tudor nobility!

Robert Hulme, of Reddish, was born early in the sixteenth century, and died in January, 1605, being buried on the fourteenth of that month at Stockport, close by Reddish. In the record of his burial he was described as "Ould Robert Hulme of Redich." His wife, Alice, whose maiden surname is unknown, was buried in the present Manchester Cathedral, September 7, 1610, as "Alyce wydow of Robte Hulme of Reddiche."

Robert Hulme b abt 1550, of Reddish, Manchester, Lancashire, England, d bef 28 Jan 1604/05, Reddish, Manchester, Lancashire, England. He md Alice abt 1576. She was b 1557, Reddish, Lancashire, England, d bef 7 Sep 1610, Manchester, Lancashire, England.
Children of Robert Hulme and Alice were:

Robert Hulme b 18 Aug 1578.
John Hulme b abt 1581, Reddish, Manchester, Lancashire, England.
Jane Hulme b abt 1584, Reddish, Manchester, Lancashire, England.
Daughter Hulme b abt 1586, Reddish, Manchester, Lancashire, England.

ALICE DE REDDISH 

Lady Alyce de Reddish buried September 1610.



And there are a few more stories to tell going down the branch to Medieval times. Personally I feel more in tune with the White Rabbit than Alice.
