Downes-Martin
« on: Monday 02 February 15 12:03 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
    I am helping my wife researching a Downs-Martin family for a friend of hers. There was a rumour that the family came from Ireland at one time. I have found a well to do family in the 1901 census in Tipperary http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Tipperary/Borrisnafarney/Killoskehan/1701614/
   Can anyone tell me some more about this family? I believe that the lady's husband was or had been Captain Edward Downes-Martin

Dathai and Aghadowey,
                                  You have both been brilliant as usual and from information which my wife found Edward Downes -Martin was married twice, his first wife having died. All the information you both have found relates either to his first wife and children or to his second wife and children who lived in England.
  Again, Many Thanks
