Liverpool History Society Questions

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

Confederate Embassy Livepool`s ACW Links


Many years ago I remember a old guy pointing out to me a Lone Star carved above the doorway of a Georgian period house somewhere in central or south Liverpool.

He was a local history buff and he told me of a link that property had to the history of Texas.

He claimed that when Texas first gained independence from Mexico and proclaimed itself a Republic , 1836 I think, it established a consulate in Liverpool to serve the trading links between Liverpool and Texas, and that this house was it’s home for approx 10 years before Texas became part of the United States.

I have searched often amongst the many streets of the central/south Liverpool area with georgian properties but never relocated this house. Does anyone have any clue as to where it may be if it’s still standing, that is if anyone else has ever heard the same tale.
