Hi Norelass,
I'm not sure if the top photo is of Elizabeth Kelly because the first child born to Elizabeth after Elizabeth (Betty) O'Neill would be Michael b 1902, if the child in the lady's arms is Michael age about 2 then Ellen would be 13 and Betty would be 5 and the girl on the left doesn't look to be 13 years old. Just a thought.

Hi.
First of all I would like to thank all of the people that have posted replies.
When I first started this topic in 2007 I did not receive any replies until 2 years later when Johnny (Jakel) posted and contacted me, I had almost given up hope of finding anything about my Grandmother Ellen O’Neill’s family.
It is so nice to find relatives.
The furthest back on the O’Neill family is John and Ellen my Great Great grand parents
In the 1901 Ireland census and his wife are recorded.
John Neill b 1835 Head, age 66, General Labourer, born in Co. Kilkenny
Ellen Neill (Kelly) b 1841 Wife, age 60, House Keeper, born in Limerick Cty.

In another 1901 Ireland census is their son John and Eliza my Great grand parents
John Neill b 1861, Head, age 40, Flour Miller, born in Co Kilkenny
Eliza Neill (Kelly) b 1867, Wife, age 33, House Keeper, born in Co Kilkenny
Ellen Neill b 16-Jun-1891, Daughter, age 9, Scholar, born in Co Kilkenny (Grandma)
John Neill b 1893, Son, age 8, Scholar, born in Co Kilkenny
James Neill b 1896, Son, age 5, Scholar, born in Co Kilkenny
Eliza Neill b 1899, Daughter, age 2, born in Co Kilkenny

In the 1911 census I cannot find John Neill and Ellen they may have passed on, but their son John and his children are recorded, John’s wife Elizabeth had died before this census about 1906.
John Neill b 1861, Head, age 50, Flour Miller, Widower, born in Co Kilkenny
John Neill b 1893, Son, age 18, Labourer, born in Co Kilkenny
James Neill b 1896, Son, age 15, Labourer, born in Co Kilkenny
Eliza Neill b 1899, Daughter, age 12, Domestic Servant, born in Co Kilkenny
Michael Neill, b 1902, Son, age 9, Scholar, born in Co Kilkenny
Christopher Neill b 1905, Son, age 6, Scholar, born in Co Kilkenny
Ellen Neill was not on the Ireland 1911 Census but I have found her on the 1911 England Census age 20 living at a School Named “The Oaks” in the Clapham Park area of London. I am not sure but I think that this was a boarding school run by the Catholic Church, maybe they were trained and used in the domestic service.

Hi,
thank you for posting the item about the photo of "The Mall" you are the first person to get in touch with me about the photo.
My Grandmother Ellen Neill/O'Neill born 1891 lived there but I'm not sure when, I think it was the early 1920s. My Grandmother's parents were called John Neill/O'Neill and Elizabeth Kelly.
I have attached photographs of another family member with the horse, his name was Tom Murphy and I believe he was a race horse trainer.
I have been searching for a long time for information about my Grandmothers family with no luck.
Regards
Tony
