hello Dathai,thank you for finding the page,I think they must have known each other well,the birth of the son is too much of a coincidence.I have seen the name George Tottenham before.It was in a will and he was left a substantial amount of money.It was in the Irish wills.They were well off to have that many servants.they also moved around a bit.If I find the will I will let you know,once again,thank you for your time,tom.

Merrion Hall was a Plymouth Brethren meeting hall (loosely a church) in Dublin.  It is no more, it is now an hotel, a great improvement.
