My husband's Ancestors (Reece, Ellis) lived in Hope in the late 1700s and 1800's before his great-great grandfather came to the USA. Would love to hear from anyone with knowledge of these families!

My Gran, Alice Knight, was born in Dodleston in 1901, at Rough Hill & she worked at a big house there until moving to Warrington to become a nurse. She is buried in the churchyard, to the left side of the church, along with her mother & her daughter Joan. There is another family grave too, behind the church.

I came to Dodleston with my Nana and Grandad and Mum and Dad and Brother and Sister and my uncle to see the bonfire and fireworks. I enjoyed the firework display because all the fireworks were so loud! It was the best display i have seen. Sophie. (age 7)

I went to school in Dodleston until 1972, does anyone else remember Miss Case the head teacher? Happy and not so happy memories but will always feel an affinity with Dodleston!

I have just discovered your web-site and wondered if someone could help me with my family history. I hope to visit Dodleston sometime soon but in the mean time I am trying to find out if there are any Thomas burials in the churchyard? My 3x great grandparents John and Deborah(nee Lewis) Thomas were married in Dodleston in 1793 and Deborah, a widow, died in 1840, still living in Dodleston. My 2X great grandparents Joseph and Ann Thomas, born c 1803, lived in Dodleston but I can't find them after 1851 and wondered if they were buried there too? Anne

I was born in Boughton (Chester) in 1949 and moved to Doddleston in 1951. I lived there till 1959 at 2 St Mary's Road. My parents then immigrated to the USA. To FRANCIS MILTON: Yes I remember Miss Case. She was my teacher in the 1950's. There was also a Mr. Cummings, also a teacher, who lived in or near Doddleston. I remember my school mates also. Malcom Burden, Phillip Hughes and Roy Cowley, and Mathew Morrow.
