George Lydiate 1856-1933
Added by arweb34genealogy on 9 Jun 2007

George Lydiate was born on the 12th December 1956 and worked as a flatman with the United Alkali Company, a forerunner of the I.C.I. from about 1870 until 1926 when he retired. Some of his children were Mary Ellen "Nellie" (married Alfred Kirby). Kate "Kitty" (married George Shaw). Betsy (married William Dunbavand). Ethel born 19 Jan. 1885 died April 1885. George (married Edith Rimmer). Ether born 1887 (married George Jones). Gertrude 2 Feb. 1890, died Sept. 1890. Harry born 1890. Samuel born 30 Mar. 1892. Annie born 1879. Alfred born 4 Jul. 1896 died Sept. 1896. Beatrice Gertrude born Aug. 1899 lived 1 day.

Ether, who married George Jones was a rum lady. Her grandson reports she had three children and during the First World War while her husband was away she informed the authorities that her husband had been killed and put the children in a childrens home, abandoning them, and went off to live with another man.

The family were originally shoemakers until our great-great-grandfather, Samuel Lydiate was born at the village of Elton on the 3rd March, 1835, who became a waterman. He was George's father. George was never a sea captain, he was a flatman or waterman who would have sailed possibly as far as North Wales for stones or slates. Fleetwood with or for chemicals and maybe as far as the east coast of Ireland. I know he was captain of the flat "major" in 1893. I believe she sank in the Mersey about that time and he had the "Cairo" in 1897. In 1916 the grandfather of Percy Dunbavand, Thomas Dunbavand was captain of the "Cairo" and he made Percy's father leave school that September when he was 13 to sail with him. The headmaster at Thomas' son's school begged Thomas to let him stay at school as he was a prize pupil but the old devil refused him.



The sailing barge "OLIVET". A single wooden sailing flat boat with an elliptical stern, carvel built at Winsford by William Cross in 1861. First registered at Liverpool number 26 on 28th February, 1881. 64-47 tons. Official number 84078. Length 66 ft.5 inches. Beam 16 ft.8 inches. Depth 7 ft.6 inches. The owner in 1881 was Ralph Atherton, a waterman of Winsford. 64 shares. Sold to William Atherton, waterman of Sankey Bridges on 12th March, 1881. He sold 16 shares to Timothy Kirby, a waterman of Widnes on 1st April, 1883 (Alfred's father), and the remaining 48 shares to him on 19th June, 1899. Tim Kirby sold all 64 shares to the United Alkali Company on 14th November 1910, this firm became part of the Imperial Chemical Industries. The vessel's registration was closed in 1967.



The sailing barge "SANTA ROSA". A two masted wooden sailing flat, ketch rigged, with a pointed stern, carvel built by Clare and Ridgway at Sankey Bridges in 1906. Registered at Liverpool number 69 on 25th July, 1906. 89-06 tons. Length 74 ft.5 inches. Beam 19 ft.5 inches. Depth 8 ft.7 inches. Owners were the United Alkali Company. 64 shares. She was sold to Daneil Lambert, ship owner of Liverpool on 19th March, 1925. Her registration was closed on 13th January, 1926 and registered anew on conversion to a motor vessel. She was later sold to a firm calaled Coppack and caught fire off Rhyl.

Betsy Lydiates Marriage
Added by KMeleady on 3 Mar 2009
Betsy actually married a Thomas William Dunbavand who is Percy's Grandfather Thomas, (who made Percy's father, George, leave school). My grandfather was George Dunbavand's (Percy's father) brother, Eric Dunbavand (which would make Percy my great uncle).
