New Zealand Completed Requests / Ireland to NZ
« on: Tuesday 26 April 05 07:41 BST (UK)  »


Iím after a look up for the following family for when they arrived in NZ:


Ellen (nee Culhane) born 1837  (widow)
Martin born abt 1860
Mariah born ?
Ellen born July 1865 in Limerick
Daniel Dominic born August 1870 in Cork
Anastasia born Dec 1871 in Limerick
Margaret born Dec 1875 in Limerick

Ellenís husband died in March 1876. She then remarried to Andrew Frederick Corrigan (born Ballimamore, Leitrim, in about 1835) in Christchurch sometime in 1882. She died in Dunedin in 1902.

So they left Ireland sometime between 1876-1882. I donít know if they went via England, or if Andrew Frederick Corrigan travelled with them.

Thank you very much

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) Lookup Requests / Hull Directories look up please
« on: Thursday 14 April 05 04:42 BST (UK)  »

The family I am looking for came to Hull from France between 1789-1799, the surname was something like De Burgh, but was changed to Brooks.

I have looked at the 1828-29 Trade Directory and got a few answers, but need some from earlier.

The family were oil painting collectors, they were in the Fine Art business, specialising in publishing prints and etchings etc, so art based.† They were suppose to have a shop called "De Olde House of Brooks".

The name Thomas Brooks is one member of the family which i am interested in as well as others too.

thank you very much

Family History Beginners Board / Help from a war expert
« on: Wednesday 16 March 05 03:06 GMT (UK)  »

My 2nd great grandfather in the 1871 census has a rank of Private Scots Fusilier Guards I have search high and low for him in the 1881 census but no luck. I was wondering if the Scots Fusilier Guards (renamed to the Scots Guards in 1877) may have been at the 1st Boer war at the time of the census. Are there any records that exist from that time for the Scots Fusilier Guards?


Family History Beginners Board / can you read this Rank/occupation?
