William Healan missing
« on: Friday 22 December 17 14:45 GMT (UK) »
Have searched the census records for a William Healan and tried different spellings but no joy. He married a Mary Catherine Dunn( born 1891) in Cardiff  Dec qtr 1912 11a 857. It could be that William was born in Ireland or if not his parents possibly as there is a strong Irish line with his wife Mary's family who were living in an Irish family area of Cardiff.

Any suggestions where to look for William would be very helpful as I have come to a full stop.

Where and when was he born? 
Difficult to look with just a name, and even if we found one, there is no way of knowing if it is the right person or not without some other info about him.

You may be best getting the marriage cert to find his fathers name, his occupation, hopefully an age and an address at time of marriage to help.

Or do you at least know when "your" one died? Giving an approx. year of birth for starters! If not it is a case of waiting for 1921 census to find the couple on there.

1911 has an 18 yr old William Healan bn Cardiff.  So could well marry in 1912.

But, as said, no way of confirming if this is the right person or not.

Dire writing - indexed Edden on Ancetry, but someone has sent in an alteration to Healan.

Maurice 34 coalminer bn Ireland
Bridget 34 bn Ireland
Patrick 19 bn ireland
Edward 16 bn Ireland
Maurice 15 bn Cardiff
Laurie 14 bn Cardiff
Hannah 12 bn Cardiff
John 9 bn Card.
unreadable dtr 12 bn Card.
James 8 bn Card.
Bridget 5 bn Card.
Harry? 3 bn Card.
Thomas 2 bn Card.


1901
North William Street, Cardiff
Mauirice Healan 60 widower Retired labourer bn Ireland   feeble minded
Patrick 29 gen labourer bn Ireland
John M 19  gern lab bn Cardiff
James 16 b Cardiff

So, this could be your William!  Certainly has the Irish connection. Prob need the marriage cert of him to Mary Dunn to see if father was Maurice.
