Traynor
« on: Friday 12 January 18 14:06 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information on my grandfather John J Traynor. John was born in County Cavan, Ireland around 1862 but spent some time in Liverpool, England, before joining the Royal Marines in 1881. On the 1891 English census he is shown as living in Widnes, England and married to Sarah with three children, Peter John b.1886, William b.1888 and Ann b.1890. The family then disappear completely until John turns up again in the UK in 1906.

We understand that John deserted from the Marines in Australia and spent the next seven years living in the bush from the late 1890's to early 1900's, before being captured and sent back to England in chains. We have no idea what happened to John's family and it has been suggested that they may have accompanied him to Australia and their descendants could still be living there.

I would be very grateful for any information on John and his family. Thanks  :)

Strange,but going by the children-he turns up in 1901 (Widnes) as Peter TRAYNOR with the same wife and family.

The marriage 1884 has him as Peter TRAYNOR marrying Sarah KAY.

Reading through previous posts I think we're looking for this chap who doesn't seem to be the fellow from 1891:
