My family have lived in Liverpool for generations, mainly in the Toxteth/south side area. My Mother's Grandfather on her Fathers side was Samuel Rylands and he would have been born in Lancashire (as it was then) around 1880/85. One of his sisters was called Rubina.
Do any of these names ring a bell with anyone? I am intrigued that so many of the people on the Rylands site refer to Liverpool! I need to know who you are!
