The Nuttall family are only related to our family by a marriage – there is no direct line. But the Nuttalls seem to have been a well-placed family and it is thought that Henry Nuttall or his son Herbert Nuttall may have been a Liverpool City Councillor and may even have been Mayor. Does anyone know the names of Liverpool City Councillors in the 1930’s?

1 April 2005 – Liverpool City Council have unwittingly answered my question! They have posted onto their website a list of all the Lord Mayors since the city was formed and, surprise, surprise, no-one called Nuttall is in the list! He may well have been a councillor, but never became Mayor.

Henry Nuttall joins the family when he married Grace Ellery, sister to Amelia Ellery my great-grandmother. ‘Aunt Grace’ was a dressmaker and my mother remembers Aunt Grace making dresses for her.
