some details of Henry R. Hadden from a medical directory of 1898 :

Hy. Richards Hadden, 68 Grosvenor rd Rathmines, Co. Dublin. M.D. St. And. 1859; F.R.C.S.I. (exam.) 1863, L. and L.M. 1859; (Dub.) Contrib. "On Compound Comminuted Fracture of Astragalus, with Dislocation of its Head,'' Dub. Med. Press, 1865; "The Use of Ergot of Rye in Simulated Brain Softening," Med.Press Circ. 1867; "Unusual Case of Removal of Superior Maxilla" Ibid. 1869

a couple of others Hadden listings that might be of interest :

David Hadden, Infirm. House Wexford
Hy. Arthur Giles Hadden , Main Street Wexford
Herbert Howard Hadden, Medical Hall Wexford
John Evans Hadden, 26 Castlewood Ave (Rathmines)

The Hadden memorial stone below was barely visible having been overgrown with earth/grass. Having exposed it I think its inscribed as follows:

In loving memory of three brothers:

Herbert Howard Hadden  -  Died Nov 1913 aged 43 years
Henry Arthur Giles Hadden Died 30th August 1917 aged 50 years
John Evans Hadden Died 10th Dec 1919 aged 55 years

I would love photos of these headstones if possible please.

As part of a clean-up operation currently being carried out on Wexford's Selskar Abbey, I have been doing an inventory of the headstones there and cross-referencing it with Brian Cantwell's "Memorials Of the Dead".

Two of the ten or so inscriptions I have found there omitted by Cantwell, refer to Hadden; See below for full transcription:

Sacred
TO THE MEMORY OF
GEORGE HADDEN
WHO DIED OCTOBER 11TH 1858
AGED 33 YEARS.
ALSO HIS SONS
JOHN E. HADDEN
WHO DIED JUNE 6TH 1849.
AND
GEORGE HADDEN
WHO DIED DECEMBER 6TH 1852.
ALSO
FRANCES JANE,
WIDOW OF THE ABOVE
GEORGE HADDEN
WHO DIED JULY 10TH 1911
IN HER 90TH YEAR.


And

Beneath this Stone
are interred the Remains of
John John Evans and Ellen Hadden
children of Mr John E. Hadden
who all died under the age of
three months
also the aforesaid
JOHN EVANS HADDEN aged 52 years
died December 5th 1862
Also
DAVID BOXWELL HADDEN
grandson of the aforesaid JOHN EVANS HADDEN
and 4th son of JOHN HADDEN HADDEN
died April 1873 aged 3 months &4 days
Also
JOHN HADDEN HADDEN
4th son of the aforesaid JOHN EVANS HADDEN
died Decr 2nd 1878 aged 36 years.


There is also a Shaw Headstone, but this is NOT one of those omitted by Cantwell.   It reads:

In memory
of
Eliza Rebecca the beloved wife of
Richard Shaw of Wexford
who exchanged mortality for eternal life
on the 28th July 1867
aged 52 years
She was an affectionate wife, a devoted
mother, a sincere friend and
an humble Christian
In the same tomb repose the
dust of her six children who
mostly died in infancy
also
the above named Richard Shaw
whose happy spirit entered an house
not made with hands eternal in the heavens
on the 10th February 1878
aged 61 years
(7 lines of virtues follow)
also Alicia Shaw widow of the above named
Richard Shaw who died Dec 21s 1881 aged 54 years.


I've photographed most of the headstones also if anybody is interested.

HugoFirst, I realise this is an old discussion, but I would be interested in contacting you as I believe we are cousins. I have considerable interest in Richard and Robert Shaw in Wexford. I do not have enough posts yet to private message you, so maybe if you read this you might message me.

I would appreciate, if anybody has them, details of the origins of Richard Shaw 1817? ( husband of Elizabeth Rebeca Banks) of Wexford. If I can find his parents it will allow me to complete the list of all  ggggparents

Hello. Richard Henry Shaw was born in 1814. He was my GGgrandfather. That makes us cousins. I have been unable to trace his parents, although I have some ideas on the line back from there. Happy to share what I have and interested to know your line of descent. My mother was a Shaw.

Best wishes

Richard Henry (family given names on both sides!)
Atkinson (Leake, Thirsk, Leeds); Shaw (Wexford, Ireland); Champney; Brumby (Notts, Lincs); Dermer (USA,UK); Lehnert (USA, Germany)
