Back in 2011 I placed a help request here about a probate record and [as usual] got the answer I wanted.
As a bonus I was given an exrtract from the 1911 census, but a computer failure since then [or its operator] means I cannot now find what I recorded at the time and I have spent much of today trying to re-find the census entry.
Dickiesam told me that Alexander Macdonald, a publican or licensed victualler, was at 184 Prescot Road, Fairfield, and born in Berwickshire. With him was an unmarried daughter Isabella, 30, born in Roxburghshire.
Searching both names, separately or together, in FMP & Ancestry has brought me nothing. A licensing record implies that Alexander was at the same premises (Fairfield Hotel) in 1901, but that, too is not delivering anything.
Before all my hair is on the floor, can anyone do better? They usually can!

Newspapers have some references. From search extracts on the BNA, the sale of the hotel was advertised in the Liverpool Mercury, Tuesday 23rd September 1890.

The Liverpool Echo, Wednesday 29th December 1915, carried a death notice. He was 66 years old and was interred at Anfield Cemetery on the Monday after his death.

I just love this forum. Ask for help on one point and you get extra bits too!

Sorry for delay in thanking you all for these excellent pieces of information - I was offline yesterday.
As usual the jigsaw is gradually coming together, but questions always remain: e.g. why did someone state that her father was deceased at her marriage, when we now know he lived another three years?

Did Isabella marry Albert Hughes? It's probably a dead end, but this might just be worth looking at:

Albert Hughes, Liverpool, Born April 1885
Hi, I'm looking for relatives of my maternal grandfather, Albert Hughes. My grandfather married my grandmother Sarah in Chihuahua, Mexico. We believe this to be his second marriage and perhaps was married prior in England... He came to Mexico in the late 1920's by way of Canada...

Again, many thanks to all who helped with MacDonald. I have now found I was barking not only up the wrong tree but in the wrong forest. It was McDonald after all, and no Isabella.
I have found the correct family who were in Liverpool as far back as 1851.
