I was most interested to read your post on the family of QUICK.
My second cousin was a JOHN QUICK he was born in 1917 in Litherland, which is very close to Bootle.
His parents were a THOMAS ELLIS QUICK and a LETITIA MARY QUICK nee KIRBY He was a Mariner in the Merchant Service
They married in St Leonard's Church, Bootle on the 31st March 1917.
His father was also called THOMAS ELLIS QUICK, but he died sometime before 1917 as stated on the marriage certificate of his son.
There seems to be a lot of information that is the same for both of us.
Do you think we are talking about the same family??
