I forgot about my Patrick O'Farrell from Cork.  I've given up hope of finding anything about him.

Hi

My lot were not very adventurous

Silk & Cotton Mills of Cheshire and Lancashire for some 100 years, then on to the Silk Mills in Staffs, Derby and Notts till the 1900's.

Boring Lot

Although one did get as far as Dartmoor Prison where he died awaiting transportation - and is buried in Princetown.

So - it could have been exciting !!

Hi Jen,

It's so frustrating when you can't find anything, but I can't give it up, one day as more and more goes on the net something may just turn up, so don't give up hope on finding out about your "Sheehan" ancestors.

I've just been looking back over the material I have collected since searching Waterford there was a Patrick Sheehan (Labourer) living at 22 Blakes's Lane (off Barrack St) Waterford City 1909/10. I don't know if he is one of yours but every little bit of info could be important. I posted a message on the Waterford board with a link to the site where I obtained this info, I'm sure you would think it worth a look as you may find more of your family.

Hi Chris ;D

even though my lot moved around a lot there wasn't too much adventure attached to it ::)

They still had the same occupation, mostly Ag Lab. of course, until the Lancashire lot on the 1901 census. This revealed my 13 year old great aunt as a  'cotton spinner' and great grandfather as an 'Iron Furnace Man"

The most exciting person was great grandmother who stayed home to attend the 'beer house' - not to mention  6 other children!

Mine all appera to be in Herefordshire, Breconshire, Radnorshire and Anglsey - but may have started out in Cornwall. Seem to have been a wealthy bunch - landowners and solicitors with the odd vicar thrown in, although one pair of ancestors seem to have sued the vicar of Kington!!
