Mayo / Cleary Family from Mayo
« on: Monday 08 April 24 16:04 BST (UK)  »

Just looking for some advice on finding any information on a Patrick Cleary, born in Lettermaghera, Newport, County Mayo on the 30th April 1872.
His parents were John Cleary and Mary Kilroy who had married on the 9th February 1866.
John was 30 years old, and named his father as Dominick Cleary, and Mary was 20 years old and named her father as Michael Kilroy.

Patrick's siblings - Mary, born on the 24th March 1867, Michael, born on the 25th September 1868, John, born on the 26th April 1870, Dominick born and died in 1876, and possibly another sister, Mary, born on the 23rd September 1877.

I know that Michael emigrated to Ohio and Patrick came over to England.

However, because of the lack of Irish census returns prior to 1901 - I'm not sure what happened to the family during the latter part of the 19th century.

In particular, we believe that the family had connections with the TreanLaur Hunting Lodge in Mayo, one of Patrick's daughters, Mary, born in Hull in 1903, gave that name to her house, but haven't found any evidence of how.

I think John Cleary (Patrick's father) may have died in 1923 - John Cleary born c1837 died in Westport, Mayo September quarter, aged 86 years.
Mary Cleary born c 1846 (nee Kilroy) may have died either 1921 or 1922 in either Claremorris, Mayo, 1921, aged 75 years, or in Westport, Mayo in 1922, aged 75 years.
However, if this was the case, why can't I trace them in 1901 or 1911?  ??? ???

Any assistance gratefully accepted!!


Durham / Patrick Cleary and his entire family
« on: Saturday 06 April 24 14:19 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone trace this person and his family before and after 1891?
Patrick Cleary - born County Mayo, Ireland c1860
Mary Cleary - born York, Yorkshire c1856
Michael born Thornley, Durham c 1877
Anthony born Willington, Durham c1881
Mary M born Willington, Durham c1884
Thomas born Willington, Durham c 1886
Ann born Willington, Durham c1888
Patrick born Willington, Durham c1890

The 1891 census finds the family living in 29 High Street, Willington where Patrick was a coke drawer.
With them was a 'nephew' Patrick Cleary, also from Mayo, ireland who was 19 years of age.
I believe that he was the son of John Cleary and his wife, Mary Kilroy who had married in Newport, Mayo on the 9th February 1866.
Patrick (1872) stayed in England, marrying Mary Ann O'Neil in Hull in 1902 - the 1939 register giving his date of birth as 30th April 1872, which matches his birth certificate, naming his parents as John and Mary.

John's father was Dominick Cleary born c1797 (died 1883 aged 86 years), and his mother was Ellen, (also died 1883, aged 88 years), so I can't believe that Patrick (1860), was Patrick's (1872) uncle.

Can anyone trace this family in 1881 or even 1901 and 1911?



Durham / Mysterious Eliza Jane Burns/Butler
« on: Saturday 09 March 24 15:16 GMT (UK)  »

Looking to confirm the parents of James Edward Tulloch, born in Sunderland on the 10th April 1916 (mother's maiden name is 'Burns', and his brother, Thomas, born in Sunderland on the 16th September 1917, (mother's maiden name given as 'Burns.')

No record of a Tulloch/Burns marriage in Sunderland (or anywhere that I can see), however, the 1921 census (I just have very limited access), appear to find the family living in Southwick.
Both James and Thomas are given the correct year of birth (no place of birth listed), and they are listed with 'parents' James W Tulloch born 1875 Sunderland, and Elisa (Eliza) Jane born 1884 (no place of birth given).

Cannot find the family in 1939, but their son, James Edward, married Ivy Simpson in Sunderland in 1940.

James W Tulloch appears to have married Eliza J Butler in Sunderland in 1915, but both the boys mother's maiden name is definitely given as 'Burns.'
James W Tulloch is easy to trace backwards - surname spelt as 'Tullock' but who was Eliza Jane Burns/Butler?


Durham / William Clifford Hare
« on: Friday 23 February 24 15:19 GMT (UK)  »

Trying to find out what happened to this man after he married and where he may have died.
William Clifford Hare was born in Thirsk during the December quarter of 1898 (parents Richard Lockey Hare and Maud Robinson.)

He married Betsy Honeyman in East Boldon on the 21st August 1924 (the family were living there at the time, and remained there).
Betsy had been born in Sunderland on the 2nd September 1900, the daughter of George Honeyman and his wife, Agnes Milne.
The couple had two known children, Thelma Margaret, born in Sunderland on the 28th August 1925, and Raymond, born in Middlesbrough during the June quarter of 1931.

William Clifford is mentioned on his brother, Wilfred Reginald's, probate record (he died at sea in 1943), as being a radio dealer.'

But can't trace William, Betsy, Thelma or Raymond in 1939 - of any trace of them afterwards.

Can anybody find them?


Northumberland / James Brown (unfortunately)
« on: Tuesday 13 February 24 16:20 GMT (UK)  »

Looking for the baptism of James Brown born c 1834 in Northumberland; he is a bit vague about exactly were but the 1861 census has it as Stamford, the 1871 as Northumberland, the 1881 as Stamford, the 1891, completely inaccurately as Cornwall, and the 1901 as 'Swind', Northumberland.
These places were taken from census returns after he married; he did so at Longframlington on the 21st February 1857 to Margaret Faill of Framlington; his abode was given as Hedley Wood. This was taken from the Newcastle Journal, dated 28th February 1857.

They did move around quite a bit in 1861 he was in Thropton, near Rothbury, 1871, he was in North Seaton, near Morpeth, 1881, he was in East Pontop, near Kyo, Durham and in 1891 and 1901 he was in Wingate and Dipton respectively.

I can't trace him with any certainty in 1841 or 1851, but I know that Stamford is near Alnwick, which hasnt helped!
Can anyone trace him?


Northumberland / Ierdale
« on: Friday 09 February 24 15:15 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for Jane Ann Ierdale who married George Brown in Newcastle during the March quarter of 1883.
They had one child, Sarah, born during the December quarter of 1891 (possibly on the 17th December); she is the only registered Brown/Ierdale birth.

But just cannot find Jane at all prior to her marriage - I can find a William Ierdale, born in Newcastle around 1852 (but only on the 1871 census). I'm presuming he may be a brother of Jane.
But no other sign!
Can anyone help!

Much appreciated

Hoping that someone might be able to help in tracing the birth registration, and/or on the 1939 register.
Malcolm Melvin Francis born on the 26th May 1926 - Cinderford, Gloucester
died Worcester 1969.

Information taken from his death certificate.

Thanks again

Durham / Ann Boyd
« on: Saturday 09 December 23 14:01 GMT (UK)  »

Looking for any evidence of this woman, Ann Boyd, prior to her marriage in 1872.

All I know is that she was born in Sunderland (according to all the census after she married), around 1850/1851.

She married Tanjore (Tangore) Henry Patterson in Sunderland during the September quarter of 1872.
Henry was baptised using his strange first name, and married using it, but was known as just Henry throughout the census returns, his surname spelt as either Patterson or Paterson.
He had been born in Birkenhead in 1850, parents James and Ann

The couple appear to have had at least six children, all born in Sunderland; James, born c 1874, Herbert, born c 1881, died 1884, Charles Edward, born on the 25th November 1880 (from 1939 register), James Henry, born c 1887, Ernest, born c1890, and Violet, born c 1892.

Henry died in 1900 - buried on the 28th December, aged 50 years.
Ann died in 1929 - age given as 78 years.

I cannot find a single children's birth registration anywhere, even using the Sunderland Registrars Site, and only know Ann's maiden name from her marriage.

Can anybody trace her, or any of her children's births?


Lancashire / Can anyone find a marriage?
« on: Friday 17 November 23 15:10 GMT (UK)  »

Can anyone find a marriage between a George Lewis and an Agnes Poland?

Their daughter, Dorothy May, was born in Liverpool (West Derby) on the 16th April 1923.
Her father worked in a sugar factory, perhaps Tate & Lyle, and mother's maiden name was given as being 'Poland'
I havent seen the certificate, I've just been told what is on it.

Dorothy May was unofficially adopted by a couple on the Isle of Man, but I have no idea what happened to George or Agnes.

Did they actually marry? Dorothy's birth was registered as being Dorothy May Lewis, so, at the very least, George must have admitted paternity, but cannot trace an official union.
Unless I find a marriage certificate, knowing any more about the couple will be virtually impossible.

Many Thanks
