just had some luck with the Blackrock home. It was actually the Blackrock Military Orthopoedic Hospital . I found details in Royal Medical Benevolent Fund doc of 5 May 1917.It appears to be a Red Cross Hosp so I will contact them to see if they have any details of patients.

The Jewish community in Dublin was always quite small and smaller nowadays. Have you contacted the Jewish Musuem or one of the synagogues. I think there are still Abrahmsons in Dublin.

Wicklow / Re: Mates family

posted the last message off the top of my head. Just checked the Irish census for 1901 and 1911 the Mates were at Brusna cottages Blackrock they must have moved around the corner to Georges Ave in the 20's. They are Church of Ireland on census.It was Daisy not Rosie who went to U.K!!- my good memory has slipped.

This may be no help but in 1920's my mother lived at 12 George's Ave, Blackrock Co Dublin and the family downstairs were Dickie Mates and children one of these Rosie Mates went to the U.K and corresponded with my mother till the 80's . I think they were Presbyterian.

Lancashire / Re: Carrs Liverpool

I might have a connection with Patrick Carr's family.
My gt grandfather was Christopher Carr and in the 1901 census for Ireland he lists his birthplace as Liverpool. The only Christopher I could find in the British records for 1850 is trhe one born to James and Ellen who appear to have had Patrick in 1853.

My gt Grandfather Christopher was married twice and on the marriage certs his father is James a seaman.

History relates that the family may have worked on the boat between Ireland and Liverpool and my grandmother often went to cousins in Liverpool in the 1920's

Thank you Carole,

Such a basic mistake. He is Michael Connor. I have traced him in the 1901 Irish census at Sweetmans Ave Blackrock when he was a car driver. But I really want to find out about his army service. Theyalso might have an address for him to find out where in Ireland he came from. His address on the marriage cert is Leeson Street Dublin but at that time these large houses were mostly let in rooms so he could have come from anywhere.
