Thomas Gormley born in Mayo, died in England.
« on: Saturday 27 December 14 17:14 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I am trying to trace the ancestors and movements of a Thomas Gormley.

I believe he was born in County Mayo sometime between 1899-1905. He died in England (probably Westminster 1952-awaiting arrival of certificate)  between 1950-1954 and travelled regularly to the Cambridge area. He was a lorry driver and served in the RAF prior to this.

Other than the death certificate which I have not yet recieved I am struggling to find any proof or facts to link him to parents or siblings. I don't know when he came to England. There are Westminster electoral records that have a Thomas Gormley living with an Alice and Ethel Gormey between 1947 and 1952 however I cannot find and birth or marriage records to find out if either of these are wives, children or siblings or if this is the Thomas I want to find.

If anyone would be able to help, I'd be very grateful! I have no knowledge of how to search Irish records yet so advice on this would be wonderful.

Thanks in advance,
Shosh

Hi

What is your connection to him?  Are you related to one of his siblings?

Where did the following info come from?

Hi Carole,

I have been asked to do the tree by a relative. This info is what has been handed down through the years. Of course this means it might not be that accurate hence why I am trying to find records to back it up.

No problem.  How is the person you are doing the tree for related to Thomas

Hopefully I will be able to determine the relationship in the near future Carole! Do you have any information you can share?

Thankyou for your help Dathai.

Is there anyway to find out when he came to England?

Hi,  I know this is an old thread but if you are still researching, I can confirm that Ethel Gormley was the daughter of Thomas and Alice Gormley, and that they lived in Westminster during the period mentioned. Thomas died in 1952.  He was my grandfather.
