Armagh / Re: William James, Thomas & Georgina Stevenson - How to prove related ?
« on: Saturday 09 March 13 10:12 GMT (UK)  »
Thanks to you both. After a very late night surfing the net it was exciting to get your response. The will looks great and certainly confirms they are siblings. I will have to resist spending the rest of Saturday on the computer. Lots of things to look at.
Aghadowey, thanks for putting the connection to the Tipperary board. I am pretty new to posting here so all the help is appreciated.

Thanks for the bit about the wills . Thought it was a bit strange. I notice the amounts are different on the two notices. If I wanted to purchase a copy, is it better to get a copy of the Irish one shown on the Archives website or doesn't it make any difference?

This is great. Both lots of info good. Thanks a lot.
Since posting tonight I have found Jeannie's death. 7th July 1941, Dublin. I see there is a will in  England as well as one in Ireland. Something to follow up. I didn't really think of looking further afield which is rather short-sighted on my part as my family is spread far and wide!!!

I have also posted on the Armagh section as I am trying to prove the connection to my great grandfather William James Stevenson.

Thanks again.

Armagh / William James, Thomas & Georgina Stevenson - How to prove related ?
« on: Friday 08 March 13 23:22 GMT (UK)  »
In my research I have come across these three people who I believe are brothers and sister but am having trouble proving it. I have not found any baptisms for them.
1.William James is my great- grandfather and was born in about 1850. He moved to England in the early 1870's and on the 1881 census his place of birth says Kinnego Lurgan. His father was a Thomas Stevenson, farmer.
2.Georgina was born about 1854 and her father was also a Thomas Stevenson, farmer. On her marriage certificate it has Drumnakelly as her home. She married Halliday Gracey.
3.Thomas was born approximately 1847. He went on to Trinity and became a clergyman. His father is also Thomas Stevenson, farmer.
My grandfather told my mother he had an uncle that went to Trinity so although only a story this would fit.
I did employ a researcher a few years ago to try and find Thomas, the father and she did find one connected to Drumnakelly and Clanrolla but no definite proof this was him. She did find a marriage certificate for a Thomas Stevenson who was a widower and this had Drumnakelly as his residence.

I am hoping someone may be able to help me out on this issue. Any ideas???

Thanks in advance.

Tipperary / Thomas Stevenson - Clergyman Roscrea, Bourney West

I have checked the Crockford's directory and Thomas disappears after 1915/16 so I presume he died.
I am hoping someone may have some information about Thomas, when he died and possibly where he is buried. Also if anyone has any information on him at all it would be great.He was born in Armagh in about 1847 but am hopeful there may be answers in Tipperary.

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Can anybody tell me where old staff records may be located. I believe my grandmother worked there in the early 1900s.
Thanks in advance
