FAMILY HISTORY – IN SERVICE…?

englebretsen_elizabeth_3

I’ve been looking this morning at some of the occupations we’ve had in our family over the years, and I came across this photo of my grandmother, Elizabeth Englebretsen as she was known then, with some of the other girls who worked ‘in service’. You often see the names of servants who worked in larger houses quoted in the census records, but I’ve yet to find one which mentions my grandmother. In this shot she is the young girl to the right of the photo, and is around 16 years of age. The rumour was that she worked in the large houses located in the, then affluent, area of Princes Park in Liverpool. I’d love to be able to find the address and see if the property still exists today…
