I’ve written about them on a previous thread, but twins Castor and Pollux Gollishoff warrant a second mention  :)

Leicestershire / Re: Infirmary records.

Records from the Towers are at the archives,  but it looks from an online search as though you might have more luck with the National Archives site for general infirmary searches.

———- scrap that! The NA links point back to the LRO. Give the office a ring and see!

My all time favourite tree was one that traced my birth family back to Adam, via Charlemagne and through my most favourite ancestor, someone called “second chatelaine” who was apparently the unknown, unnamed paramour of Richard 1, sometime in the twelfth century. Meticulously researched and referenced, of course  ;D

I can see the following baptisms for William's and Mary's children:

Dec 1729 Mary    (buried July 1734)
Dec 1730 Elizabeth
April 1732 Henery  (buried Sept 1734)
Marchh 1732/3 William
Sept 1734 Robert  (buried 1743)
Feb 1736/7 Henery  (buried July 1738)
Feb 1739/40  Thomas  (buried Nov 1745)
April 1742  Ann
July 1743  Robert  (buried April 1756)
May 1744 Alice and Catherine, twins
August 1745  John  (buried Aug 1745)
April 1747  Harry

So. 13 children of which at least 6 died in childhood, 7 if you count Robert who was just into his teens. 50% mortality sadly seems to have been about par for the course in the "good old days"    :-\

I'm only seeing 2 baptisms for a Henry - one in 1732 and one in 1736.

There was a burial in 1734, presumably of the 1732 Henry. Another burial took place in 1738, but although FindMyPast says that this Henry was also born in 1738, in fact the register just refers to him as an "infant" so he could have been the 1736 Henry.

Yes, Joseph was a schools inspector and you can find him on the 1901 and 1911 Irish censuses. he married Jane O’Reilly in Maynooth in 1887.

Re Jane Flannery, I found a possible baptism in Dublin in 1827. I haven’t found her marriage to James Murphy so would appreciate any info there!

Hello Notlob

Let's keep things on this thread rather than spread across several - it will make it easier to follow.

My friend is descended from James Murphy and Jane (maiden name Flannery) through their son Joseph.

Hello Notion; I was the person who was posting about Austin/Augustin Murphy; rather than have 2 threads running, let’s just use the other linked thread for further posts re this family.

The Common Room / Update -Rudkin/Green - DNA has it!
« on: Friday 02 November 18 16:14 GMT (UK)  »
To summarise all the above - Roderick Rudkin m Mary Green of Baslow, as above -- but which Mary Green was it and was she really from Baslow?

Subsequent to previous chat I decided to "go with" Mary, daughter of Matthew Green, who had married Mary Wild from Curbar (won't bore you with reasons at this point, but I spent hours on the PRs).

Anyway, I've had my DNA done, and got a match back to Roderick and Mary Rudkin as shared ancestors, then another match to the Wild surname in Curbar, in the right era - haven't sorted out the exact link yet but this would seem to suggest I'm on the right track!

It takes years at times, doesn't it, but our research comes together in the end  :)
