Ina Connolly Heron's witness statement gives some details on her father's brother John - namely that he was in the Army and died in 1916
A bit more snooping says that he enlisted using the name REID. That appears correct as one of his files (1914) exists giving his wife as Elizabeth Aicheson/ Connolly of 4 Fountain Close, Edinburgh.
His death is here:,%20JOHN
and they married 8th August 1891 (you can buy that on Scotlandspeople)
The file says they have 5 children but none are named unfortunately.
You really need your g grandfather's birth cert - or failing that his marriage cert or I believe Scottish death certs name parents names as well ?

Heres a possible link to look at - but nothing concrete and jumping ahead a bit.

1864 - 23 Chancery Lane - birth of Rosanna Walsh to Lucas WALSH & Ellen DOYLE.
Christopher DOYLE is a sponsor, so I'm going on the idea that Ellen is his sister

Lucas Walsh & Ellen Doyle marry the following year (1865) and she gives her parents as Robert Doyle and Eliza. Witness is William Donnelly and Mary Doyle of 18 S Earl St (see image)
1865 - 23 Chancery Lane - Marriage of William Donnelly to Anna Doyle of 18 S Earl Street.
Her parents are Robert Doyle & Eliza Valentine.

Then there is this 1832 baptism for a Christopher Doyle with parents Robert Doyle & Eliza

Also the birth of an older son in 1859 which pushes the marriage date back a bit
Robert William Doyle - 1859

Hello everyone
I am new to this chat. We have just learned that our mother had a child in 1951 in a private home listed as 77 Drumcondra Road. I cannot find anything at that address and wonder if it was a typo - 78 seems more likely. Does anyone know if there was another home across the road?
Hi DebraNoel
Do you mind saying who was the birth informant - was it Nurse M J Gallagher by any chance ?

Dublin / Re: Mary Bailey Burial

Have you looked for a newspaper notice for either death.
I've just been doing that !
Mary has a death notice in the evening Herald but it just says that the funeral is private and no details of the cemetery.
I found that around this time my family (all inner city Dublin) stopped using Glasnevin and for some reason after the 1930's they are all buried out in St Fintans, Sutton. (and a few in tiny churchyards in Malahide and Kinseley  as well) perhaps it was a trend ?
William's says that he was buried in "military cemetery, Blackhorse Avenue"
His death cert says he died in Grangegorman Hospital so maybe they had a section at the cemetery or he had a military background ?

Dublin / Re: Nursing home owned or managed by a Mrs Kiely in the 1960s. Now dissolved
« on: Monday 13 February 17 00:33 GMT (UK)  »
I checked the Irish Newspaper Archive with an assortment of searches to tie a Mrs/Nurse Kiely to what I presume was some type of Nursing/Maternity/Adoption service and came up with nothing.
Sorry !

Buckinghamshire / Re: Agnes Brophy & her daughter died Chesham, Bucks.
« on: Monday 13 February 17 00:25 GMT (UK)  »
I did a bit of digging today. Herbert John Farrell was born 2 Feb 1894 in Dublin but I can't find a death for him. One possibility in 1951 that might be worth following up when I can get to the library and check the electoral registers.

Also found the probate index for both Dora and Andrew Burrows and both give the same address at 36 West View, Chesham that Agnes was using so that really nails it without even getting certs.

Re: the pension, it wasn't a normal state widows pension - it was specificially for widows of men who had fought in the 1916 Rising. Her husband was awarded it in 1928 but then he died shortly after and the pension died with him.
The legislation to extend it to widows was brought in in 1971 and that's the one she applied for.
