Cheshire / Re: Census 1851

Hi Valetta,

That’s brilliant, thanks so much, that confirms my grandfather’s story. I had Ann as Devlin or Keragan, I have a copy of the John Hogan and Ann Devlin marriage record so thanks very much for confirming that!

Much appreciated,

Thanks, probably my tree as I was working on it yesterday trying to find the father’s death. The priest had written Stockdale on the baby’s death but I presume that’s meant to be Stockport as I cannot find a place called Stockdale in the region so I added it in hoping it might trigger other hints. I had missed that christening, but it looks like this baby belongs to the family.

Hi everyone is it possible to search the 1851 census by address looking for bombers brew or brow Stockport. Looking for Thomas & Eliza Hogan married Oct 1850 both living at that address on marriage cert. Both born abt 1830. Eliza Ireland & Thomas Newcastle upon Tyne. Eliza Moran looking if any family names appear living there

Hi Washy,

Thomas’s youngest sister Ann Hogan was my great great grandmother. The 1851 census has her and their brother Christopher mistakenly listed as Gannon, but they were John Hogan’s children. All other records for Ann such as her marriage and children’s christenings show her as Hogan, her marriage specifically lists John Hogan as father, not James Gannon. The 1841 census shows Ann Hogan “widow” (their mother) as the head and then lists the family, with James Gannon and others listed under as residents. I wonder if Ann the mother later actually married James Gannon as I cannot find a marriage record for them, or if he just happened to answer the door on census night and the census person made assumptions? I believe John Hogan died early 1841 but cannot narrow down which John Hogan death record is his. Do you have anything on this? Apparently my grandfather used to say that Ann Hogan (the mother) was a great Dublin lady who ran away with a redcoat (meaning John Hogan). Makes sense as apparently 40% of the British army was Irish during this period.  I have no clue what Ann’s maiden name was but would love to find the Hogans’ origins in Ireland.

Warwickshire / Re: William & Elizabeth Hemming of Studley

Hi Lindsey,

I never moved any further on my Heming branch. In fact I removed William etc from my tree all those years ago. I only have this branch as far as John Heming and Elizabeth (no last name) whose son was Henry (1802-1885).

Good luck with your searches,


Mayo / Re: Patrick Harrigan tried in Castlebar - aliases include Haddigaddy, Hargedon etc

Hopefully this reply is received by those who have contributed to this thread. I realise it spans quite a number of years from my original post. We might even have contact with some of you outside of here as it is hard to tell by Rootschat display names.

I have been working with maggie1403 on a large scale Ruse family DNA project and we have in fact confirmed that Susannah Ruse was the BIOLOGICAL child of James Ruse and Elizabeth Perry. We have over 50 descendants who have compared their DNA with more currently being processed. maggie1403 has literally spent hours and hours compiling all the information.

Since posting we have also found that Patrick Hargedan/Harrigan/Haddigaddy died in June 1838 in Liverpool Hospital. This debunks the theory of Jane Payne being the child of Patrick as she wasn’t born until 6 years later. Ann’s surname was never Haddigaddy but it was Hartshorn at one point so easy enough to confuse.

Additionally, cousin Janice Ruse Huntington’s research uncovered that Patrick was tried for supplying a gun to the Threshers. He was from a town called Foxford in County Mayo, not too far from the County Sligo border.

For more information on the Ruse/Kiss DNA project, descendants of James Ruse, Elizabeth Perry and James Kiss can join our facebook group “The Descendants of James Ruse and Elizabeth Perry”.

There is also a Ruse/Kiss family reunion anticipated for September 2020.

A family reunion is planned for the direct descendants of James Ruse  on Sunday 28 October 2018 at historic Old Government House Parramatta.  We are trying to muster direct descendants from his marriage to Susannah Northcott in Cornwall, and to Elizabeth Perry in Australia.

Hey Jess,

Yeah, that's right, my Dad and your Dad are first cousins. I remember your Dad from Uncle Arthur's 80th but not so much other than that, I don't really remember your Mum but the name Maria is familiar. Your Nan was lovely, she bought my kids some fairy tale books a year or two before she died. Do you remember Aunty Glad?
