Look up request - Robert William Roulston (b. 1820 - 1850). Irish or English. Was a Coal Merchant in (Ormskirk) Melling, Lancaster, England. Married to Ann (Dunn?), son Charles Calhoun Roulston was born 12 November 1868 in (Bickerstaffe?) Melling, Lancaster, England.Birth Certificate hand written and almost unreadable. All leads so far lead me to assume that R.W.Roulston was born in Donegal, Ireland in 1828 and died in West Derby, England in 1896. Also found that Ann Dunn married in Ormskirk in the beginning of 1848.
Would appreciate it if anyone can corrobrate this. Interested to see if he had any other sibblings or offspring.
