O'Neill - Master of Lurgan Workhouse
« on: Friday 19 June 09 21:15 BST (UK) »
John Henry O'Neill was Master of the Lurgan Workhouse in the 1920's. His wife Emma, as was the custom, was the Matron.
John's father was James O'Neill, an undertaker etc., of King St Newry. Any info on this family much appreciated.

hi hamlets,

a john h. O'NEILE was the master of lurgan workhouse in 1910,with the mrs as matron.

the 1901 census for john street in lurgan has;
john henry o'neile,c of i,27,born county armagh
emma rebecca o'neile,27,maybe born roscommon
elizabeth jane norah,3
james oliver roe,1

a possible maiden name for emma rebecca might be Karr,but it's just speculation.

Tony TF 13 -
Many thanks for providing the link to the 1911 Census.
Once again I was caught out by the multiple variations of the spelling of the surname.
Thank you.

To Mouser:-
Am simply knocked over by your info that John and Emma are your gt gndparents. That being so, then I am related to you via the gndparents of James O'Neill  of King St Newry.
The obit of James O'Neill in the Newry Reporter for 2 Feb 1922 mentions (of course) John Henry O'Neill. It also mentions my gndfather as a relative. I have developed a largish tree of links in South Down and south Armagh.
I live in Bangor, Co. Down.
Regards.
