Hi there all. I am in th UK and my Great Great Grandfather
William Lancelot ANDREWS
was born in the West Indies around 1860.(According to 1901 census)His father was JOHN TAIT ANDREWS and already deceased in 1889, according to W's marriage cert.
William was a merchant mariner (GB) and came to Liverpool and married in 1889 and settled there. I have him on the uk 1901 census and i have his wife and child on the 1891, but not him. I presume he was away at sea. I cannot find anything else about him prior to his marriage to my GGGrandmother.
I am sure we are connected to the Andrews in St Lucia and Barbados because i found an Alice Graeme Andrews there who emigrated to USA, and My grandfather had post cards from An Alice Graeme Andrews adressed to 'Uncle Willie Andrews, and also to his son Andrew. Also William named a daughter 'Blance Estelle, and there is an Estelle Bascome-Andrews on the Island. Just cannot find a Birth cert for him I know his date of birth as the 7th July but the year is somewhere between 1858 & 68! all documents say a differend date!!
Please Please, if there is anyone out the who may be able to help, i would be so grateful. I do not know the first place to start.
Many thanks in advance
