Sinann, I am sorry, I don't know if my John Holmes lived in Castlewood House - I have been looking in some old papers and found that Jane Holmes nee Johnston was living at 9 Richmond Hill Rathmines when she died - Her funeral was 30th March 1842 in St Paul's ... would that be in Gormanstown ?
I have a recollection that her uncle was buried in Gormanstown.
Thank you again for all your help.
Liz

Thank you for Roseanna - the only slight hesitation I have about this John Holmes (whose father was George...) is that he is catholic whereas my Johnston ancestors all seem to have been very strong Church of ireland, anglicans...

The uncle's will has an address in Dublin, Camden Street.
Jane Holmes nee Johnston was living in Rathmines when she died in 1842. Her parents also lived in Dublin in Castle St.
Irish records are very difficult I know, and I have never been able to find Jane & JGH's marriage, nor the baptisms of their children ....... that is why I asked for help with this brick wall !!

I got the information from Glasnevin for eight euros :
John Martin Holmes, aged 50, musician, 24 Middle Gardiner St,
Sarah Holmes, aged 55, servant, 32 Bloomfield Ave
Teresa Phelan, aged 53, dressmaker, 41 Marlborough St.

The other names don't mean anything to me : Patrick Gannon d.1889, James Byrne d.1878, Agnes Smullen d.1845, Margaret Gallagher d.1842, Elizabeth Kenny d.1861

Jane Johnston was born and lived in Dublin.  I presume that these George and John Holmes are the right ones as the dates fit - or else they would be a huge coincidence !
I don't know where John & Jane married, most probably in Dublin...

Thank you very much, Dathai, for the info about John Holmes, son of George - how can I get the names of the other Holmes in the grave in Glasnevin - I live in France !
Sinann,
The info about Jane Johnston & John G. Holmes marriage came from the Figgis family and also from an uncle's will where Jane is mentioned.  Her three children are mentioned in the same will ...
That is why I was wondering about Frederick Holmes and what is his connection to George and John as he is not mentioned in the uncle's will.
Thanks you for the Dublin Heritage site, Rathmore, I'll have a look

best regards to all, Liz

Hello rootschatters,


My great x 5 grandfather Benjamin Johnston's youngest daughter, Jane Johnston was born in 1757 and she married a John Gunstan HOLMES, I don't have the marriage date. I think he came from Sligo.
They had three children - George, John & Maria.  Maria was born about 1784.
Maria married into the FIGGIS family.
I think John G. Holmes died in 1826 and his wife Jane in 1842.

As far as I can see, George and John married on the same day, 3rd January 1836, in St Nicholas Within, Dublin.  George married Sarah Gilfoyle and John, Marianne Magrane.
George and John were both witnesses to the marriage of Frederick Holmes in the same church to Elizabeth Johnston in Jan 1829.  I don't know where Frederick fits in, a brother or a cousin ?

Can anyone please help me to find further information about John Gunstan Holmes and his sons?
Many thanks in advance for any help at all  - Liz Augereau

Donegal / James Stewart Johnston
« on: Tuesday 11 February 14 12:54 GMT (UK)  »
Hello Donegal Rootschatters,

My great great grandfather Benjamin Johnston was a doctor in Ramelton or Rathmelton from 1844 for about 18 years.  He & his wife Emma had ten children, of whom the above James , born July 1853.  Apparently this James died in his "teens" so I was wondering if it were at all possible to see if he is buried in or around Ramelton.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
Liz
