David Henry GUTHRIE 1856-1927
« on: Sunday 08 May 11 05:56 BST (UK) »
David Henry GUTHRIE was born 12 Apr 1856 in Abbeyleix. By 1876 he was in New Zealand as a schoolteacher. He married Eliza Jane BRYCE in NZ in 1878.

Trying to establish his parentage. When he died in 1927, his obituary said he was the son of a D Guthrie.

He had a sister, who was married to Robert H MOORE, and who died in 1882 in NZ at the age of 31, and whose name would appear to be Jane Charlotte. She was a widow at the time.

Thanks

Any idea what religious denomination your Guthrie family were and which parish they lived in ?

David's birth is just before the start of civil records, so you will need to check into church records. Does his marriage cert not give details of his parents ?

see : Introduction to Irish Records

There's a single Guthrie entry for Co. Laois of Griffiths Valuation - an Anne Guthrie, with an address at Mrs Lalor's Lane, Mountrath. This valuation entry record is dated 1850 - see : Guthrie, Queen's Co.

DH Guthrie's parents I have found out were David GUTHRIE and Isabell WOOD. David senior was an architect.
