In Reply to: Heston - County Mayo, Ireland by MICHAEL BROWN of 491

Just noticed your posting for Heston. My great grandmother's maiden name was HESTON and sometimes spelt as Hastings. She came across from Ireland, I believe, in the 1850's and settled in Liverpool. I know very little about her childhood or birth place except she was born around 1841. County Mayo was mentioned often by my father, in particular Castlebar and Westport.

Ann married/lived with Edward MORRIS from around 1861. I can find no trace of their marriage but from the 1861 census they were not living together at that time. They were a very poor family. Ann and Edward named their children, Ellen, Anne, Richard, Michael, Patrick and Mary (my direct grandmother).

From the 1861 census of Liverpool, I believe I found Anne under the name of HASTINGS, living with her mother Ellen, brother Thomas and sister Eleanor. I would be very interested to hear from you if you think there is a connection. Please respond to my private email address.

Look forward to hearing from you
