Family History Beginners Board / Re: Deciphering Griffiths Valuation

One is a family home, outhouses and land
the other is a Herd's house (person looking after animals, probably a fairly simple structure) outhouses and land
Neither tells you how the land is being used.
This is a good guide to understand GV

Westmeath / Page mix up in Collinstown Parish Register.

I hope I can explain this clearly.
First this canít be proved without seeing the original register.

On Film 04169/03 starting 12 May 1844

The months do not run chronological, beginning May 12th than June, July, and August with 29th of August showing near the bottom of the page, the next page is badly damaged ( right hand) but itís clear to see a set of baptisms and then August written clearly and a set of baptisms underneath. The next page (left hand)  has a couple of baptisms than May clearly written and goes on to June and July, the next page is September.

I believe the damaged page is a loose page from 1849 pushed into the incorrect year also put in reverse.

1849 has a gap
One baptism in April at the bottom of the left hand page and the next is Sept on right hand page.

I believe Luke Partland on the 8 April of the damaged page is the second April baptism of 1849.
All later records for Luke in Australia give him a birth year of c1852 also he has a sister baptised in 5 May 1844 on a different film.  I also tried to follow up some of the other children on the page, not so easy without townlands so I looked for marriages for the parents.
Two of the couples didnít marry until 1847 Peter Fox and Mary Kain son Michael's baptism is on the damaged page and Christopher Lestrange and Mary Fagan son Johnís baptism is on the damaged page.
If you have someone who appears to be baptised in 1844 when all other records indicate a birth closer to 1849 it would be worth checking if they are on this damaged page and decide for yourself.

Hi Meabh
I'm interested in your mention of the Lysath family.
I've been looking quite a bit at this family recently.
Are yours the Lysaths (and many variations) from Roseberry?
I've also been looking at a Fox family Thomas Fox and Rose Donnelly.

Antrim / Re: James Morrow - Humber Street 1880

It's on the 1919 - 1963 map
Parallel with Dee St, near the main road not too far left of The Oval

It's on quite a few of the maps, but Dee Street is a bit confusing, on some maps it curves to the right of Humber St. on others appears to go straight up to the left of Humber St.

Tried the surname and address in the newspapers
Aug 1935 after a minor road accident gives James aged 48 and Kathleen aged 13.

James death Feb 1965 gives him deeply regretted by sons, daughter, son in law, daughters in law.

1974 death of son John, deeply regretted by James and Ellen and brothers and sister, brother in law, sisters in law. (son of James and Ellen, James at least was already passed)

I assume it's one of the sons James death in 1986, his memorials the following years gives several names but as possible living I'll PM them to you if you wish.

Looks like  to me illegitimate, seems to be a case of a son using his father's name even thought his parents were not married.
