The Eaton Family in Liverpool

This page lists those members of the Eaton family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children believed to have died in infancy. Our branch of the Eaton family lived in Liverpool as far back as we have been able to follow. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

The Eaton family we are researching are known to have lived in Liverpool from the early nineteenth century onwards. Our earliest known ancestors were Richard Eaton and Sarah Grindley, who married in 1806. We have found possible baptisms for both, but we cannot identify them with certainty because they do not match exactly the ages given at death/burial. The Eatons lived in the Scotland and Vauxhall area, just north of the city centre. Several members of the family worked as broom and brush makers.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are (or were then) in Lancashire unless otherwise indicated.
