Carlow / Re: Haughton
« on: Saturday 18 August 18 12:12 BST (UK)  »
Hi its been a while since I've been here, but I'm off to Ireland soon so hence trying to tie up some bits. I have Patricks birth cert and marriage cert to Margaret Jones. I know his parents were William and Mary Mc Donell, but what I am stuck on is who were William's parents? On Ancestry it says his parents are Samuel 1787-1874 and Catherine Thompson 1795-1865. However that Samuel appears to have been married to Sarah Hancock and had 8 children, none of whom were named William!! So it doesn't add up. If this Samuel was his father that would be the link to Carlow. Any thoughts?

I've checked on the family tree my brother has worked on and there is no sign of a Charles, so maybe yours a different branch of the family,

I don't know, possibly there is a connection. I have a photo of a Janey Haughton, who I believe was my father's aunt, though I can't find her on the family tree my brother has done. When was Mary Jane born?, and her father Charles?

I am pretty sure they are his parents, as my brother has also done some research, and has started constructing a family tree. Advice from Ancestry is not to necessarily trust the research of others hence my current research here, rather than relying completely on what my brother has done. I really appreciate your help and will try and access the info you have provided. My Dad was definitely baptised at Cobh so it makes sense his birth cert was there also. I'm actually also interested in looking back further as my brother has done a certain amount of the work. In our family I think there were quite a few Samuel's, Patricks, Williams etc, so likely to be confusing!!

thank you for the info, sorry for delay in getting back I have had some internet problems. I have a photocopy of Dad's birth cert but it is a very poor copy.

I'm trying to find any information on the Haughton family. My father Thomas Haughton was born in Middleton near Cork in 1904, but some of his ancestors were born in Carlow. Some of his ancestors were Thomas and James, and there was a Samuel and Samuel Gilmore Haughton. I would be interested to know if anyone else has a link to this family or is researching the family tree. I believe the family may have originated in England, and were Quakers.

Is it possible to enhance this photo, taken circa 1896? This is my grandfather and is the only photo known to exist.
