Biographical Information:

  • Charles was born in Manchester when his father was there working with his brother-in-law, WH Reeves. But both his parents were from Cumbria and had moved back to Stanwix by the time of the 1901 Census. Charles Isaac Liddell is listed as a joiner and builder (employer) by this census. The family believe there was friction between him and his father Isaac Liddell as they had competing businesses. In the 1911 census Charles and little brother Thomas were still at home but Charles was a draughtsman. They were living at 35, Rosebery Road, Stanwix, Carlisle. The Carlisle grammar school register gives the address of   27 Etterby Street.
