Shone Distribution in 1881 Per 100,000





Lily Shone and John Iredale

Lily Shone was my (Peter Kelsallís) grandmother, my motherís mother. The Shones are a Buckley area family that can be traced back to the 1500ís in the Hawarden parish registers. Our direct line traces back from Lily through William (b. 1845), Samuel (1817), William (1789), Thomas (1766), John (1740) and (probably) William.

Lily Shone was born in Buckley in 1879. She met my grandfather, John Iredale, while she was in service (i.e. working as a live-in servant). John came from Huddersfield in Yorkshire and his mother and grandmother were confectioners. After they were married, Lily and John opened a pie and peas shop in the Lane End area of Buckley, which later became a bakery and cake shop and which they operated until retirement in the mid 1950ís. John died in 1957 but Lily survived to the age of 92, passing away in 1971. After retiring from the shop, Lily and John lived in Tramroad, Buckley next door to my fatherís sister, Gwen and her husband, Jack Whitehead. This was near St. Matthews Church and around the corner from where Lily lived as a girl.
