Sligo / Thomas Kilmartin of Tubbercurry
« on: Monday 03 March 14 00:38 GMT (UK)  »
Hello I am trying to find some information on Thomas Kilmartin of Tubbercurry I am not sure if this is the right spelling as I have seen it spelt Tobercurry as well.
Thomas Kilmartin was born about 1857 he seems to have left Ireland sometime before 1890 and ended up in Manchester where he died in 1933 according to his marriage certificate his father was James Kilmartin occupation Farmer, the certificate gives no details of his mother.
thank you

Gloucestershire Lookup Requests / Re: Marriage Look up in Bristol please
« on: Saturday 22 October 11 12:43 BST (UK)  »
Completed
Thankyou very much Sue for the look up on Emma Stratton's marriage, the info has turned out to be very useful, I was 95% sure that Emma belonged to our family, but to convince me I needed her father Thomas Stratton to be a Sailer/Mariner.
Once again thank you very much.

Hello I was wondering if some one who may have a few moments to spare at the Bristol Record Office could look up some marriage details for me.
The marriage is that of Emma Stratton and Robert Long and took place on 25 December 1841 at St Phillip and Jacob, Emma's father's name was Thomas Stratton, I would be very interested if some one could tell me what Thomas Stratton's occupation was, whether he was deceased or not ( bit of a long shot, but I believe it was sometimes recorded ) and the names of a witnesses.
Thanks very much

The Common Room / Re: Where is Bristol

Thanks to every one for your answers, sounds like just typing in Bristol is the best way to go.
My ancestors seem to come from the St James area in the late 1700s and early 1800s.
Thanks

hello I am planning to do some research in Bristol but I can't work out whether Bristol is in Gloucestershire or Somersetshire.
I would be very grateful if some one could clear this up for me.
Thanks

Hi Mike
sorry in taking so long in getting back to you, I have not come across any of the names that your have mentioned except for Pearse, but they come in at a latter time, Edward Manley the son of Edward Manley and Joan Churley married a Ann Perry Pearse who was born about 1750 I think she was from Sidbury and that she was the dau of a John Pearse, after Edward died she remarried a Joseph Cook in 1786 at Honiton she died 20/06/1823.
The other Pearse was Sarah Pearse ( my 4 great Grandmother ) was from Sidbury and was b in 1779 she died at Sidbury and was buried there on the 15/02/1843 she was married to Robert Manley son of Henry Churley Manley.
As I said in my earlier reply Henry Manley who married Joan Gervis and the Edward Manley who married Joan Churley were brothers.
They were the sons of Robert Manley and Joan Churley this was a large family of 12 children  the family as far as I know looked something like this

Robert Manley of Hemyock married 16/08/1700 at Uffculme to Joan Churley
bap 18/03/1670/1 at Hemyock
bur 14/04/1747 at Hemyock                 bur 04/01/1759

Dorothy married 07/01/1744 to Thomas Osmund
Elizabeth married 14/02/1740 at St Mary Magdelene Taunton Somerset to Leonard Tratt or Trott
Patience married Jonathon Waldron
Eleanor married 01/09/1760 William Churchill

Henry and Edward were the only sons of this family to marry.
I must admit I was not aware of a Robert Manley being a Mayor of Taunton and I would be very interested knowing a bit more of what became of Thomas Darch and his family once they went to Philadelphia.
once again in taking so long to reply
regards

Hi Mike sorry for taking so long in getting back to you.
The Robert Manley who married Sarah Hall was the eldest son of Henry Manley and Joan Gervis, Henry Manley was an elder Brother to Edward Manley (nearly 18 years older ).
Henry Manley had eight children that I know of namely

1. Ann      bap 14/02/1726 bur 01/11/1798 unmarried
2. Robert                   bap 22/11/1727 d     circa  1761
3. Henry      bap 22/05/1729 d     pre    1775
4. Rev William   bap 20/05/1731 bur 04/01/1775
5. Mary      bap 23/11/1732
6. James      bap 08/07/1734 bur 18/10/1797
7. Elizabeth   b  circa     1736 bur 08/04/1766 unmarried
8. Joan       b  circa     1738 bur
 
Henry Manley's younger dau Joan married Thomas Darch in 1761 he was Lieut- Col in the Somerset Militia.
I think they went to the USA in the late 1700s or early 1800s
Robert Manley married Sarah Hall in 1751 and had least two children that I know of namely Robert who died young and Sarah who married a Richard Strong in 1773.

Edward Manley married Joan Churley in 1742 and had five children that I know of namely

1. Rev Henry Churley   bap 07/03/1743     d 07/02/1819
2. Edward      bap 19/07/1745     d           1780
3. Joan         bap 15/03/1746     d           1812
4. Mary         bap 14/05/1749 bur 09/05/1750
5. Elizabeth      bap 10/06/1755 bur 12/06/1822

Edward Manley's daughter Joan married a Thomas Gore a Surgeon about 1771.
I hope this is of some help to you, let me know if I can be of further help.

Hi Kat C
Where an earth did you get hold of the Seagoe Cemetery records? what a find
I never that I would be able to find out when Eleanor Somerville died

Back to Henry of Ballyhannon
Seagoe Cemetery  first is  hard to read, I think this is correct

Erected by Simon Somerville

Ballyhanon? in affectionate remembrance of his mother Eleanor Somerville who departed this life May 185(8?) I think that would be May 1853 as Henry married Caroline Brown in 1854  aged 42 years
Also his father Henry Somerville who departed this life 19th Nov 1872 aged 66 years
Also his daughter Miriam Somerville who departed this life 27th July 18(7?)8 that would be 1898 as Mirriam was born in 1882 aged 16 years
Also his wife Mary Jane Somerville who departed this life 4th of March 1811 (probably means 1911 and the 11 is unclear) I think it would be 1911 also aged 60 years
Also the above named Simon Somerville who died 20th Nov 1926 aged 77 years

Next to it is
In loving memory of George Somerville of Ballydougan
died 19th July 1916
His wife Rachel died  10th Aug 1945
Their daughters Annie and Etna
Also their sons Howard and Norman


of interest is this which was farther away

In Loving Memory of Dorothy Caroline Born Melbourne Dec 8th, 1906 
Departed this life Nov 9, 1961
Also E. Vivian Somerville this would be Edmund Vivian Somerville he was the second son of William Somerville and Mary Sleator, William and Mary went to Liverpool about 1897 then to Manchester about 1900 Mary died there in 1918 and William died there in 1951William was Simon Somerville's half brother
born Manchester Aug 8th, 1906 Died Oct 17, 1981
(grandchildren are mentioned)

I found a Pierce Somerville dying at Leeds in 1862 aged about 57 I think he is the father of Sloan and Youngson, I found Pierce in the 1861 census he gave his occupation as a Glass Merchant, also found him in the 1851 census giving his occupation as a bottle merchant he was living in Leeds in 1851 and 1861 as lodger.
