i am researching my great grandfather, James Swann.
He was born in 1877 in Antrim, Northern Ireland.
I have information in 1909 he was a Police Officer working at the Oriel St Bootle Police Station.
At this time he was living with his young family at 16 Bianca Street, Bootle.
His children were John James Brown (who may have followed in his father’s footsteps) and my grandmother Margaret Swann.
James’ wife was Margaret Brown Swann nee MB Hodge.
I’m not sure where to find out his date he joined the Police force or his police number, still trying to locate the 1901 and 1891 census to see if either of them show him as a Police Officer.
If anyone has any info on James Swann’s police officer time in service, please do let me know. Thank you.
Ps I’m located in Australia - so unable to pop into places in person to go through records (much to my disappointment).
