James TRAVIS 1/9th Batt # 2161
« on: November 28, 2007, 11:44:08 PM »
Hi

I've just discovered James TRAVIS who died on 20/06/1915 at Dardanelles.  There's a lot of info on the "ashtonpals" site and reference made also to his brother John.  In one article he was given as son of "Mrs A Travis" and in another son of "Mr and Mrs A Travis" - I'm struggling to figure out who his parents were - does anyone have any helpful suggestions please?

Many thanks

~ Claire

Have them on 1881 with Alice as a 2 yr old. Samuel listed as a Paviour?Anne a cotton weaver.
Street looks like Satton St. The S could be anything.

Thanks mack. You are on the ball. My great grandfather had a large pub in Ashton "The Theatre and Concert" on Katherine St on the corner with Oldham St . Thomas Jackson. He died young at 42 in 1869. He had the British Standard on Old St before that. I got his death certificate his cause of death "Excess use of arduous spritous liquour" the inquest was done at his pub. With being death by going on a bender by someone in a large place in the centre of Ashton. I was very fortunate as the whole inquest was printed in the Ashton Reporter.
They have a book at the Ashton Archives on "Ashton Pubs" don't have the listing for the Royal Oak, only copied the ones I needed.
thanks mack

Many thanks for all your hard work, emails and expertise :)

I'm going to get the information from the marriage of Samuel to Ann WOODCOCK and see if that gives me any more clues
