Nora Nolan & Daughter
« on: Friday 14 October 16 12:32 BST (UK) »
Hello all,
I am trying to trace some information on my great aunt and her daughter.

Hanorah (Hannah / Nora) Nolan
B. Apr 11 1885
D. After 1946?
Location: Knightsmountain, Knocknagoshel
Parents: Michael Nolan (1853-1929) & Johanna Cremins (1861-1900)
Sources: https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1885/02642/1974381.pdf
1901 Census: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Kerry/Lackabaun/Knockariddera/1428255/
1911 Census: Disappeared

Had child Lillie?
Father Unknown - Name could have been different as have been unable to trace it.
B. Unknown
D. Apr 3 1946
Died in Hospital after having a bad fit?
Sources: Unknown - I have it recorded in my tree however cannot find the evidence of it anymore only the photo - I believe it was in a letter from my nan however has gone missing.

I have uploaded a picture of them - I will update with link shortly as is awaiting approval - do not know age of daughter so asked if people are able to give me an estimate.

There's no picture in your post but is this not Norah (Nolan) Roche in 1911?

Hi aghadowey
Sorry the picture I posted in the Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs category but is awaiting approval - http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=757532.0

She was born as Hanora Nolan not Roach - in 1911 she would have been about 26. She could have married a John Roache though I am not sure.  No evidence to prove it so far.

I think you didn't look at the link I posted for the 1911 census entry  :-\

Head of household is a Johanna Nolan with daughter Hanoria, son-in-law John Roche and grandchildren.

Marriage was 1901- father listed as Patrick Nolan so perhaps not correct couple?

Apologies I had missed the son in law bit - after looking again I understand what you were saying.  I think I can cross out John Roache then as possibly husband as your correct the fathers name is not right from the marriage cert. 

Thank you for your help however - I appreciate you helping me look :)

Looks like I can also cross through Simon Keane as possible husband as this Hanora Nolan is part of the Toureenard clan.

Guess I am back to square one with these two :D

Worthy considering?

Nora Nolan, daughter of Michael Nolan (deceased), married 1932 to Patrick Sullivan-

That is a fantastic result thank you so much - I certainly think thats the most viable find so far.

Michael had passed away in 1929 so that fits.  Her daughter as per the other image from 1940 has had age estimated about 12 so would be before the marriage but not impossible.  Also she could be younger.  Now to see if I can find any children registered of them.

Thank you again!

Here are some similar names and dates from a Nolan family history book, hopefully you can see something promising.
