To Lisa Duggan, I am not sure how this forum works, but I hope that you will get to read this post. It appears that your Great GrandFather Alphonsus and my wife's (MaryRose Duggan Doyle) Great Grandfather Edward were brothers.  I am now trying to get more information on his mother Julia, I have visited her grave in Glasnevin,  I have mention of her in the 1911 census,living with her daughter Christina.It appears that her moter was a Granddaughter of Richard Guinness Father of Arthur Guinness.

Dearest Debbie,  I am not terribly surprised that a guy I met 40 years ago, through work, turns out to be a distant relative of my wife. My friend and I are both in the motorbike business. we were worlds apart till I started work, as were the worlds of MaryRose and I, till we met 32 years ago. the  words of a song sang by the   group shangrila  " The Leader Of The Pack" could have been written about us when we met.
 Getting Back to Margaret Seville.
 My friends name is (*), known to everyone as (*), he has a brother called (*).
 Margaret was married to William O Brien( born over 100 years ago)
 Margaret's Father was also William
 William Seville married Ms? Keegan.I think they met in FindLaters.where they worked
A bin lorry reversed and crushed Mike Keegan
There was a Jack Keegan , and someone had the nickname Ginger
let me know if any of this information is familiar, and what part of the world you live keep in touch
                                                                       Sincerely Yours
 BTW if you or any of your relations have ever ridden  a motorbike and shopped in dublin for motorbike parts you or they have met me

Liam Doyle again married to MaryRose Duggan,I would like to aim this note to Sevilled. Check out the forum to see my wifes connection to Duggans-Dublin., I have a friend wwho's mother is alive at 99 years of age. She was a Seville before she became O Brien, with what I have read hear I told him that we could be related. In his family there are Sevilles and Keatings, and he had an uncle Richard. His Mother, Margeret Seville O Brien,   said that one of her Female relations in 1916 was shot in the head by the black and tans. Does this  information"ring a Bell"

Hi again, Liam Doyle here again, what part of the world are you from . Re the Connection to Guinness. I have a photocopy of a certificate from the City Hall Dublin,   pertaining to the fact that  James Keely became a freeman of Dublin because he was Married to a guinness. I also have a Type written  letter rom Edward Duggan 46 Portland Row Dublin dated JAN 1921. Addressed to Mr Henry Seymore Guinness Burton Hall Stillorgan. A quote from the letter reads,"Lord Iveagh may be interested to hear that my mother (now in her 89th year)as a child accompanied her mother on a visit to Lady Guinness of the Greenhills, of Tallaght. She also was aquainted with Mr.Benjamin Guinness( or as she familarly says 'Ben Guinness') way back in the 1840s....I have another letter from a Mr Thomas Roper Dated Oct 1901
of Bookkeeping Room, Main Office Western Union Telegraph, co Cgigago to his cousin MaryAnne Kavanagh.In the letter he says that his Grandmother was Keely and his great grand mother was Guinness, he figured that he and His Lordship were 4th cousins.  I wll keep  in touch ...   Liam

Hi all, my name is Liam Doyle, married to MaryRose Duggan of Clontarf, Dublin.
Her Father was Edward Duggan originally from Rathmines. Jeweller
Grandfather Joseph Duggan. Compositer/Printer
Great Grandfather Edward Duggan 46 Portland Row Dublin. Compositer
In the year 1910, GGF Edward Duggan was admitted as a freeman of Dublin because he was a grandson of James Keely, (father of Julia Keely who married Thomas Duggan. )
James Keely ,tailor, 1 Eustace Street Dublin, was admitted as a freeman of Dublin
in the year 1841 ,because he was married to a grandaughter of Richard Guinness
who was the father of Arthur Guinness who was the creator of the famous Beer that is loved by millions.
I am in awe at this information as  probably are you. The question is what was James Keelys wife's name , and which child of Richard Guinness was she.
 I will keep in touch . Liam
