There is a probate for a William Henry BEECHE in 1892 to Thomas Joseph BEECHE, brother

It is handwritten in the records as BEECHE LINK
but registered as BUCHE LINK
He died aged 49 implying bc1843 LINK

This could be another brother

I wonder which one of these sources is most accurate in regards to age?

- L

Death notice:

"Sept 12, at Kilgeffin Glebe, Roscommon, the Rev W.H. Beeche, Vicar of that parish, aged 40"

John Bull, Saturday, September 23, 1848, Vol. XXVIII, Issue 1,450, p.610

Modified again:
Another death notice:
"On the 12th instant, at Kilgeffin glebe, county Roscommon, aged 32 years, the Rev William Henry Beech, vicar of that parish, leaving a widow and six young children."

Freeman's Journal, Monday, September 18, 1848

Yes, I did wonder too when I saw them? The local one (Freemans Journal) with more info you'd think would be more accurate, however age 23 seems young to have been given a Parish appointment (in 1839)

Maybe not if there are only 16 parishioners. :-)
