Tracing the Lillico connection on St Helena
- My wifes great grandfather, Phillip Lillico, was born on St Helena in
1860.His father Robert Lillico, born South Shields in the north east
of England in 1831, married a young woman called Elizabeth from St
Helena. I have no marriage information, however I estimate she was
probably born @ 1835.In addition to Phillip another two of their four
children were born on St Helena, James Lillico b1858 and Laura b1862.
Between 1862 and 1865 they returned to England where their other two
children were born,William in 1865, born in Hampshire and Thomas in
1871 born in Durham.
I am interested to find out who Elizabeth was and the origins of her
family,what marriage records may or may not exist relating to their
union, and whether Roberts father was on the island during Napoleons
exile on the island. Any help would be gratefully received.
With Best wishes,
