Yorkshire (West Riding) / Harry/Henry Boxer
« on: Friday 16 October 20 17:26 BST (UK)  »
My father's middle name was Harry named after his Uncle.
Harry/Henry Bolton son of Mary Chambers & Edwin Bolton
born 1880 & Lived at 70,Elland Road Islington which came under Beeston Leeds.
Family legend has it Harry was a bear knuckle boxer and would fight in booths at feasts. It has also been said he was a money lender.
A number of years ago a distant descendant said that Harry had won a boxing belt similar to a Lonsdale Belt.
Also saying Harry had boxed in the yard behind Tommy Wass public house at the top of Dewsbury Road.I
If anyone has any knowledge of Harry l would be interested to hear about him. I think he went under a nickname of Styke !

One Name Studies: N to S / Re: Power

Hi, yes l understand many of the Power folk were R/C as were mine.
It's difficult with a common surname and lots of 1st name duplications.
I will keep your names in mind, people moved areas more than we give them credit for.
Funnily enough l did a dna on ancestry and one of my area's for Ireland was Mohegan.

Yes that true there would not be as much emphasis placed on birthdays- and I'm thinking not many requirements where dob were asked  not like now a days.Probably later in life easier to create a date.
Once again thank you very much, I will take a further look at everything in the morning. 😀

Wow ur on a super roll Sinann. Having just seen your post it does seem to fit & maybe Kate made Michael up! we will never know.
 But I do know when she married a second time she named a different father ?
I'm beginning wonder what was going on she claimed her
date of birth  09.09.1905.
Honestly you couldn't make it up -talk about secrets and lies lol

Hi Sinann
I'm mega impressed with your searching - l continued to look thru Shillelagh Workhouse last nite but didn't see a Lucy so at the moment it is very much as if they were definitely at Rathdrum.
I'm wondering if my relative having been told Lucy was 9 yrs when she died, could in fact be it was Grandma Kate who was 9yrs when her sister died!!!!
I can't thank you enough for your help 😀

Iv come across the Wicklow Site with records on-line for Shilleghagh Workhouse and have been searching thru to see if Kate & Lucy were living there- not seen them there yet. As Lucy died in the orphanage as grandma called it my thinking was it would show her death there.
