Not sure about the BJ in the census???

I found lots of Brophy records yesterday on IrishGenealogy. I even discovered that Laurence Brophy and Annie Brady had a son Michael in 1912 that no one knew existed :)

My grandfather's niece (they were both Reades) researched this letter from one of the Reade brothers (James, George, William, Redmond and Richard) to a Brother Joachim, who, I believe was actually Richard.
 "Your cousin Mick Brophy being at a funeral at Devonsfort on the first of May 1822 was way laid on his return home within a mile of the town and murdered by a blow of a stone. He has left a widow and a son to deplore his loss. He was comfortably situated in Flood st in a concern given him by his father. Jas and Patrick Brophy are both married in flood st and in business for themselves as is Stephen Kehoe to Paddy Mooney's daughter... your grandfather Brophy dyed the week after Mick was murdered."
I hope this helps with your search. I recently started searching my grandfather's family (Charles A. Reade, Kilkenny and Philadelphia). This letter gave me lots of names to work with, though, I haven't found much, until I found your post 😊
Cheers ~ Tracy

Heyy! So glad I found this thread. Hope it's still active!  I've been trying to research my Grandmother's family tree for her. Her surname was Gleeson, but her mother's maiden name would be Brophy. Her uncle lived on Old Callan Road in Kilkenny. They moved to Chester at some stage when she was young and then after that to Belfast.

She remembers an Uncle Mick Brophy married to Annie Brophy. They had 3 children, Michael, Noel and Pamela. Would this be the same family you are looking for?

She has been very ill lately and would love to find out a bit about her family. Her memory isn't great anymore so I'm not sure if she has the dates and places correct.

If anyone has any info about I'd really appreciate it!

Regards, David.

Hello David

I wish I could help you but the names you mentioned aren't familiar to me. I have been able to go only so far with the records. Hopefully someone will recognize them.

The Michael Brophy I mentioned above married a Hunt.
