In the early eighties whilst on the Geest boats, Mrs De larrinaga was a regular passenger. The word was that her husband who had died a few years previous owned the De Larrinaga line. Afterwards, she apparently chose to live in a small flat in Liverpool (bootle i think) keeping in touch with her routes and friends, instead of the big country house option.

Anyone verify this?

The De Larrinaga family residence used to be in the Sefton Park/Aigburth area of Liverpool & as you indicate was a fairly largish house,(never saw it myself, just the normal heresay), which is south of the city centre. Bootle on the other hand is north of the centre, but this is the first I`ve heard of this. Any idea which Mr De Larrinaga she was married to? I did see a Mr De Larrinaga (memory fails me which one) on the telly a year or two back, on a financial slot, but not sure if he was connected with the Liverpool branch of the family, so unable to answer your question really after a lot of waffle.(Thumb)
Cheers,
David

Correct David the Larrinaga home was in Carnatic Rd Sefton park/Aigburth area. The house was named Redbourne, has been a nursing home for many years now, a friend of mine now owns it and is still a nursing home with the original name.

Sadly the house has been altered vastly and does not represent anything like its original form. The grounds are now much smaller than before with a bungalow built on a former part of the grounds, Also there is a day care centre attached to the original buildings, the main building has 51 residents all in single berth rooms with en suite facilities, large dayrooms 3 I think, large dining hall and other rooms used for offices etc. It contains a very large cellar with large walk in lockers and the original safe also a walk in job. The roof trusses consist of steel girders painted in red oxide with Dormon Long the steel makers name every few feet along the girders.
I understood that there were 3 daughters in the family, no sons, (not certain) I am correct with that information. I do beleive that members of the Larrinaga clan did enter into the financial world and had property interests in Tenerife around Puerta de La Cruz. What relationship they are to the Larrinaga shipowner I do not know.
