Hi. I am looking for any information about Duncan McRae, who died around 1898. During his lifetime he was the first constable in the Bootle area of Liverpool, England and had a huge portrait hanging in the Town Hall for many years. My research has revealed that he was born in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy in Manchester, England. As I am confident that I have located all of his family line from that point I am particularly interested in information about his wife & parents etc.

Hi Judy. Thanks for your reply.

Does the information I have provided about Duncan McRae make any sense to you? I am particularly interested in finding info about his parents - where they lived, where they were born etc.

Can you help?

I find this board a bit hard to navigate. YOu have to remember where you were!. Can you email me at copywriter[AT] Only part of your info matches mine. I am descended from Duncan's daughter Ann. Can you tell me how you are related? Our info is that Duncan was born in Scotland. The mystery to me is what he got up to in the years before he joined the police. Judy
