Transcript of Baptism Register:

She married Edward Farrell in Liverpool on 13 September 1829.
Transcript of Marriage:
Marriages Solemnised at St. John's Church in the Parish of Liverpool in the County of Lancaster in the year 1829.
No. 307.(Man's Name) Edward Farrell (Parish) Liverpool. (Occupation) Carter (Woman's Name) Alice Mollison (Parish) Liverpool, Spinster, Banns, 13th September, In the presence of John Burgess and Thomas Woodward. [This is Saint Johns Old Haymarket].
Alice does not appear in census returns after 1851 so it is assumed she died before 1861. It is possible but not confirmed that she died in Salford, Lancashire in 1854.
Who were the Woodwards? Catherine at her baptism and Thomas at the marriage.
Spelling of Name: Surname is spelled Mollison on baptism register but on all other documentation it is spelled Mallison. It could be that the Alice Mollison on the baptism is not the same person.
Henry Mallison, present at the Farrell household in 1841 census (age 30, Carter) must be a relative of Alice's but there is no other information to help clear up who he is.
Her mother may have been Alice Bullen. Marriage to a William Mallison, at Walton on the Hill, Lancashire, February 1800.
The real puzzle is that Alice Mollison is baptized in the Catholic Church. This is very likely NOT our Alice. Is there an Anglican baptism for twins, Alice and Henry Mallison lurking somewhere - perhaps not Lancashire at all?
