Gentleman Jim Rimmer, b 1879 Liverpool (?)

Hi. I am trying to track down my Paternal Grandmother's Grandfather. He was apparently known by the name Gentleman Jim Rimmer. My aunt recently bought some info from a firm called "Mersey Memories" which had the following:

1891, 5 Garibaldi Street, Everton Vale, Liverpool.

William Rimmer (Husband) Age 38 (b 1853)Cotton Porter
Mary Rimmer (Wife) Age 32 (b 1859)
Hellen Rimmer Age 14 (b 1877)
James Rimmer Age 12 (b 1879)
Eliza Rimmer Age 9 (b 1882)
Frances Rimmer Age 6 (b 1885)
Sarah Rimmer Age 4 (b 1887)

At some time around his early 20s James Rimmer married and had at least 2 children. 2 were daughters.

Mary Rimmer and Jane Rimmer.

Mary married someone called Eyre, and became Mary Eyre. But she had 2 children with a man called William Butler.

These were John Butler, and Marjorie Eyre, my Grandmother.She was adopted at 6 months by the Binns, in Cowling, nr Keighley, W. Yorks.

Jane married and became Jane Maslin, living in Willowbank Avenue, Blackpool. She had two children, Elsie and Vincent Maslin. Elsie married and became Elsie May, then moved to Canada where she is in a nursing home in her 90s and is called Elsie Chance, after her marriage to Thomas (?) Chance.

Vincent had 2 children, one called Ross.

The interesting thing about James Rimmer or Gentleman Jim Rimmer, is that as far as we know, he worked for the Liverpool Empire Theatre, and went out on tours. And we believe he actually died on tour, possibly in Rugby.

So if anyone knows any more about a) Garibaldi Street b) Everton Vale c) The Rimmers as listeda above d) Gentleman Jim Rimmer e) anything of interest to any of the above then tha would be wonderful.

Many thanks

Nicholas Harrison
