    My 2nd Great Grandfather was Matthew Arthur who was a bricklayer. He married Catherine Langan. Their daughter Mary Elizabeth married Ernest Whisker. Mary died very young aged 33, leaving two young daughters that were brought up by foster parents. My Mum remembered going to York to see what she thought was an Auntie Catherine. Upon my research the only Catherine in the tree would have been her Great Grandmother.

    My Great Grandmother lived in Downhill Street in 1881. Great to see images of the road.
