James Mawdsley Publisher of Gore's Trade Directory - Canning St/Falkner Square
Posted by Michael Allen on March 4, 2018, 15:26:54
I am looking for any information on James Mawdsley (b.1826) of 11 Canning Street, and later 36 Falkner Square. He was a publisher whose company 'J Mawdsley & Son' acquired the plates for Gore's Liverpool Trade directory some time in 1834, and continued printing it until 1897s, when Kelly's took over. He moved from 11 Canning Street (where he is recorded from at least 1851) to a new (assume specially-built) residence at 36 Falkner Square sometime in the late 1860s.
Other than an article in a later copy of the Directory (scanned copy here), I can find no information about Mawdsley, or his company. His wife Ellen was buried in St James in 1880 (area unknown), and one would assume he was buried there also.
He is the son of James Mawdsley (b.1801) of 72 Falkner Street, and is recorded at that address is 1841, 11 Canning St in 1851 & '61, and 36 Falkner Square in 1871.
Any leads would be very gratefully received.
