10: (C3) William John Tidman, B: 1856 in Norwich, Norfolk is my GG Grandfather. At the age of 15, he lived in St Paul, Norfolk. He was a Bricklayer. He married Alice Maud Saunders, Dec 1884 in Lowestoft. She was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England. Lowestoft is a seaside Port town in Suffolk. Norfolk and Suffolk border one another. They had 3 children: (D1) William, (D2) Hannah and (D3) John At the age of 35, they lived in Wavertree, Lancashire. This is according to the 1891 census. At age 41, they then lived in Kirkdale, Lancashire and William was a general labourer. When he died in 1914 (age 58) in West Derby, the census depicted his occupation as a Dock laborer. He followed the same occupation as his father. I wonder if he was also into Carpentry.
11: ALICE MAUDE SAUNDERS, MY GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER

(D3) John Robert, their 3rd child was born in 1893 in Wavertree which is known as West Derby, Toxteth Park.
