Liverpool History Society Questions

A selection of Liverpool history questions submitted to the Liverpool History Society

Pellew St


I’m trying to find out what happened to Pellew St. And where it was.

My Grandfather lived there 1911 census.

I cant find it on any maps-was it destroyed in ww2?

Mathew Street origins and Major Henry Rathbone

Major Henry Rathbone

Hi Rob

1. Who is Mathew Street named after? She asked if it was a Leiutenant John Mathews. But if it was surely it would have been called Mathews Street?

2. Major Henry Rathbone was present when Lincoln was assassinated. She wanted to know if he was a member of the Liverpool Rathbone family. There’s a piece about him on Wiki but no real clues as to his ancestry. It would be neat if there was another Liverpool link to Lincoln’s assassination!
