Here’s my great grandfather James Caddy, born on the 24th March 1859 at Silk Street, Congleton, a sub-district of the Counties of Chester and Stafford. His father is Thomas Caddy; Occupation Iron Moulder and mother, Ellen Caddy formerly Ryan. Note that on this birth certificate, there is no mention of James being named James Ryan Caddy.
