Born at 77 Pythian Street in Liverpool to Lizzie Ann Ellis, sometimes Lizzie Anne, also known as Lizzie Jones. Lizzie Anne Ellis (otherwise Jones) later known as Elizabeth Ellis and then Elizabeth Bethune, forewoman in margarine works and later a ship stewardess.
Other children are:
Idris Ellis born January 1925.
Mair Ellis born 1926.
Owen Francis Ellis born 1920.
All four children were informally adopted and so there is no legal adoption record. Ronald’s siblings have managed to trace each other and would dearly love to know what became of Ronald. All four children had different surnames after adoption and it is possible Ronald’s forenames were changed also if he was adopted as an infant. Although Ronald was born in Liverpool, the family ties are North Wales.
There are no legal or financial implications to this search but Mair, now aged aged 88 years, wishes if possible, to be reunited with her brother or be in touch with his family and learn what became of him. The desire is purely one of family ties, and the need to have knowledge of her fuller family before it is too late.
If you have any information that may help in the search please contact me.
Update: March 2016. I am pleased to report that I have now managed to find Ronald’s family, and confirm he had changed his name in the 1950’s. Sadly for his sister, Ronald is no longer with us but she and her family are enjoying getting to know their ‘new’ nieces, nephews and cousins.
