In Reply to: James Shipton Lancashire UK? b-1870ish?? by Paul Edward Parham esq (Scotland) of 138

Hi Paul,
I believe James Shipton may be my grandfather. My father Eric was in the merchant navy and jumped ship to marry my mother June about 1949 in Melbourne Victoria Australia.
My father Eric (deceased 1983 in Australia) was living in Blackpool England and he was one of 6 or 7 children.

Erics grandmother lived until 106 and mother died in about 1979.
