Anderson Family of Colooney St Limerick
« on: Sunday 27 May 12 09:34 BST (UK) »
Hi
My research leads me to my Great grandfather Robert Lloyd marrying Sarah Anderson of 87 Colooney St, Limerick They were married in St Michaels Church,
Church Of Ireland Limerick

Sarah Anderson's father was John Anderson as noted on marriage cert and Roberts father was Henry Brooks Lloyd

I am keen to know her mothers name if Sarah had siblings and more information
On the Anderson family where they originated from to present date and the names and dates details of John Anderson's parents. Welcome anyone filling in the above info and getting back to me with it.
Thanks
Karen

Hi Karen,

i think my family have links to Sarah, but I will be damned if I can confirm the link.

to put you in the picture:

my grandfather was born in limerick in 1896 john thomas anderson, he had two sisters and a brother and they all moved to glasgow approximately 1905.

his father my great grandfather john anderson born approx 1870 married elizabeth quaid (lizzie) in 1894 in the st michael's church in limerick.

his father my great great grandfather was james anderson date of birth unknown.

now you may be asking what this has to do with sarah ?? well i have thought for a while that james my great great grandfather was sarah's brother, but sadly i do not have the proof yet.

i have spoken to an irish genealogist who knows limerick well from that time period and she told me from around 1850/60 through to about 1900 there was a cluster of anderson's around st michaels' church in limerick and it is very likely they were related.

my gandfather john was born in henry street limerick, when his parents married they stayed at wellesley place (now clontarf place) if you take your colooney street which is now wolfe tone street and look at them on a map they are all within a 30 second walk of each other on the south side of shannon bridge.

looking at the 1901 census for colloney street there are still anderson's although not at 87, they are now at 48.3 colooney place jane anderson 19 eva anderson 17, sisters of addie kearns head of family.

they are also at 60.2 colooney place ada, lizzie and rose anderson, nieces of head of family sarah eddis.

family also at richmond street.

Thanks erskinescott, for getting in touch much appreciated have searched for ages, for Andersons in Colloney Street particularly John Anderson - Father of Sarah Anderson, as noted on Marriage Cert. 

Your Great Grandfather John Anderson born 1870 looks a good candidate for Sarah's dad, or maybe James Anderson had an older brother John Anderson who might be Sarah's Dad

i hav'nt got a birth date for Sarah, or marriage age on Marriage Cert as far as I know i will look at Marriage Certficate again to check that.. and get back to you. 

That's good you managed to get help with Irish

Appreciate your family information, seems likely these families are connected.

Thanks

Karen.

Hi Scott Anderson,

I have just been rereading your message, like the information that you have given all about the Anderson family living around Limerick.  Feel they could all be related to my Sarah Anderson.  Ages ago by chance online I saw a birth record for 1869 for a Sarah Anderson which could be my Sarah Anderson but havnt seen it since. Just to mention that Sarah Anderson Married Robert Lloyd 13th September 1887 in St Michaels Church. Limerick.  Keen to keep in contact with you and I havnt found any further information on Sarah or the Anderson family.  So would welcome any help.

Hi Karen,

Hi ElizLloyd,

If you message me as much info as possible that you have on Sarah I will have a look about at things. I have found some new leads for Anderson's in Limerick going back to  Ballinabrackey in County Meath. I cannot promise anything but I will have a look.

Scott

See marriage certificate I reckon Sarah's mother was Kate as per witness with John the father. Note that Sarah was a minor so could be aged 12 through to 20 years of age.
