Re: The Jordison's

Hi Gary
I do not have an Edward Weeks Jordison on my wife's tree but that is because I do not have a great deal going much into the 20th century. My information starts to peter out after 1910 or so. There were two or three Jordison families in the North West at the end of the 1800s, Liverpool (Toxteth Park) and Manchester (Chorlton), the latter being of more interest to you, and your grandfather may come from one of them. There was Edward Binks Jordison who died in the Chorlton area in 1903 aged 60 but I do not have any children for him (he was a shipping agent). Another family belonged to John Jordison, he was born in Manchester in 1883 and married Josephine Victor in 1906 in the Chorlton area. I have three children (so far) for this couple, Elizabeth (1913), Gerard A V (1917) and Joan M (1922). John's father (Thomas) had come from the Thirsk area where he was a stonemason. John (son of Thomas)had a brother, Thomas b 1885, he married Lilian Turnbull in 1911 at Levenshulme Wes. Meth. Chapel but I only have daughters for him, so far.
I don't know if any of this is of any use to you, if you can find parents for your Edward I may be able to help.
Best wishes from cloudy Middlesbrough
Donald
