LAFFAN - James born 1816
« on: Friday 27 February 09 06:45 GMT (UK) »
My James was married to Maria born 1813. Do not know when or where they married.

The children were James born 1841 Ulster Armagh
                             Mary   born 1843 Ireland
                            Catherine in 1847 Liverpool Lancashire UK
                             Thomas   in  1852 Ireland

James went on and married a Wexford girl Eliza Healy b 1843.

Can anyone put me straight?

Thank you   Lee

Thank you for your reply - long time - James & Elizabeth Laffan. Yes I believe this is the family we are joined with. You have 11 children can you list. I show only 8.Thomas Burke 1868 - 1929  Elizabeth 1870 - 1912  John 1875  Maria Catherine 1877 - 1948  Mary Jane  1879 - 1952  Edward Andrew  1882  Charles James  1884  and Mary 1886.    Did your connection Charles James marry an Amy?  My link is through Thomas Burke  - I also have connections to the branch of Maria Catherine. Can send copies of certificates etc. if you want them. Let me know your e-mail.

Sorry, I miss counted. There were 10 children. Alfred James 1863 not sure of his death date. Catherine 1864-1867, Thomas James Burke 1867-1929, Elizabeth 1870-1912, Julia 1872-1874, john 1874-1928, Maria Catherine 1877-1949, Edward Andrew 1879-1926 and Charles James 1886-1934. Charles names married Christina Crosby in October 1906, they had 7 children in 14 years. He died on January 11th 1934 at the age of 48 after falling down a hatch at the Liverpool docks. Their children were james Patrick 1907-1976, Eva 1909-1970, my grandmother Christina 1911-1989, Eileen, 1914-1997, patricia 1916-1922, Charles 1920-1992, Mary Elizabeth, 1922-1933. I have more information and lots of documents and photographs on my ancestry page. You are welcome to have a look and use anything that you need. It is the hendrick/Watkins/hyland/Laffan tree.
