Dublin / Re: Baptism address - Lunatic Asylum
« on: Thursday 20 October 11 20:24 BST (UK)  »
I contacted Grangegorman Museum about 3 months ago. They have a website
with a contact link, and I emailed that.
I got a reply from a man who said he would be happy to do a search for me if I could give him some rough dates. Since I didn't have any and wasn't 100% on the family connection anyway at the time I didn't want to waste his time.
Thanks for the latin help - so now I have another Patrick to find!!

Just to add. I know that the North Dublin workhouse was basically behind the present day Grangegorman Annex (now roughly Broadstone Bus garage I think ? )

I had thought that Patrick was the son of a Christopher McGrane but seeing the Patrick McGrane Jnr that Shane147 just provided and the 2nd marriage I just found, it seems that Chrisopher was Uncle rather than Father.

 I do know that Patrick's son Michael Angelo died at Christopher's sons address, I have the death cert.
I have a particular interest in the place as my Grandmother Angela was a nurse there in the early 1930s. She died of TB in 1936, aged 36 My mum was 2 years old at the time. The archives of RLA/Grangegorman are perfectly preserved and very extensive featuring photos and records of all patients. It's a real pity the National Archive don't have them.  I seem to remember reading that they refused them. Really sad, a very important social history.

Thanks shane147 - I am actually free tomorrow so can get those certs in the GRO tomorrow. Will let you know how I get on. I have known about 2 births at RLA for a while but found 2 more today and am a bit stunned.

I just did a random google and turned up this
a record for a PATRITUIS MCGRANE marriage to a CATHERINA LYNCH  possibly a second marriage for Patrick ( I think at this stage in his late 60's based on what I know at the moment) .
The father's name listed is PATRITII but I am fairly sure that Patrick's father is called Christopher. Anyone know what PATRITII is. If it was Patrick I would have expected them to just write PATRITUIS.

Shane147 - I just saw you latest post about The Poor Law Union. I do know that a Peter Byrne was Patrick McGrane's brother in law.
Thanks so much.

Dublin / Baptism address - Lunatic Asylum

I have the baptism records from St Pauls - Arran Quay of 4 sons of a Mary Arkins who may be my g.g.g. aunt.

In each, the Address is listed as Richmond Lunatic Asylum, now Grangegorman. The fathers name (Patrick McGrane) is on all of them and 2 informants named.
The births are:
Thomas Joseph - 1866
Mathew James - 1868
Michael Angelo - 1870
William Sylvester - 1871
The only marriage record I can find for them is St Mary's Pro - 26 Dec 1849
with one other son born in 1854 (no address) and another birth but don't have the details to hand at the moment.
I believe the husband Patrick may have been the Secretary of the  North Dublin Famine Relief Committee in 1847 - so probably well off enough. Certainly I know that his Father and brother were timber merchants in the Church Street area of Dublin in 1850s - 1860's
Could they have worked/lived there or something ? I can't make sense of it.

DudleyWinchurch - The records of St Paul's - Arran Quay are online on The fact that they have them is most likely why they are not on They have 5 William McLoughlin's (+ varients) listed between 1810 - 1855 being married there. The search is free but the actual record will cost 5 euro to see. The one from 1855 could be interesting to you.
If my link doesn't work make sure to go to the Advanced search feature where you will get the option to search for St Paul's only and not the whole of North County Dublin. (a costly mistake I have made many times)
