Kilkenny / Re: Deansrath - Help?
« on: Sunday 10 May 15 09:21 BST (UK)  »
Thanks to all (Hallmark, Maggsie, conahy calling) who replied - I appreciate your time.

One little extra question, can anyone explain the Baptismal record quoting Deansrath? Transcription was done for me... by a genealogist.
Is this a common mistake?

Kilkenny / Deansrath - Help?
« on: Sunday 03 May 15 12:20 BST (UK)  »
Could someone please help me? - I am trying to locate "Deansrath" - on a map. I seem to be going around in circles. Every map seems to send me to Danesfort.
I have Burns, Cummins ancestors who were baptised, the records state Deansrath.

Any suggestions or clarification would be appreciated.

Kilkenny / Re: Thomastown CO Kilkenny Ireland
« on: Sunday 03 May 15 09:54 BST (UK)  »
Hi Biggles - just wondering if you are still active.
I visited Thomastown in 2005, found a gentlemen around the Catholic Cemetery and he told me I had just missed the PP at the time.

My ancestors where from Thomastown / Deansrath - James Burns married Margaret Cummins, 22 Nov 1824, Thomastown, witnesses: John Headen & Mary Tobin. They had three children William, Francis and Mary.
William bapt 20 Jun 1827, sp. Edmund Nurry & Anastatia Aylward, residence Deansrath
Francis bapt 2 Sep 1829, sp. James Laracy & Mary Wall, residence Deansrath
Mary bapt 6 May 1832, sp. James Wall & Judith Larrissy, residence Deansrath

Margaret and Francis emigrated in 1855. Arrived in South Australia and settled originally around Clare.

Family history - passed down from Francis to his grandchildren (my g aunts/uncles) - says that James was a Doctor, and that he, William and Mary all died sometime prior to departure. Margaret became a large landowner in SA, very uncommon for females, so she must have had some money behind her, hence/maybe supporting Dr story??; Francis worked the land for her - and together they increased the land holding. Side story - when building the Catholic Church in a new settled area - Francis was granted permission and chose the name St Canices.

I am wondering whether you can help me to ascertain any information on the names Burns/Cummins - how common are/were they in the area?
Do records of Doctors exist?
Burials at the time - does Deansrath have a Cemetery?

Any help would be appreciated no matter how small.

Library and FHS Lookups / National Archives Lookup Request - Challenge?
« on: Tuesday 14 April 15 12:02 BST (UK)  »
I am not sure of the challenge or otherwise that this request would create

I am looking for information, any snippets gleamed, with regard to my 2x ggrandfather, Patrick Doyle, in

ADM 115 - Admiralty: Ship Record and Establishment Books, ADM 115/575 - JUMNA

I am aware that Patrick was on board Jumna for a period of days in Oct-Dec 1869 en-route to India. He was born c 1850 Kilkenny Ireland. He was enlisted 1868 Dorsetshire Regiment. 39th Foot.

I am uncertain as to what the records would contain and would love to know whether they are worthy of acquisition, given page numbers etc.

I should explain - I am in Australia and a complete novice when it comes to research at National Archives.

Many thanks in advance for any consideration or suggestions.

This is fantastic - I tried to chase up the Kinvara reference to Galway for Patrick - and yes that is the Patrick Conlon - which is Catherine's father. But have had no luck - wondering if it is a generic reference. We have/had part of it Lisa - now we have it marrying up - I am guessing that from all of the information that it is working - no real definitive truth but it all seems to match - that is with this Catherine as the daughter of Patrick.
Thanks for all of the brilliant work on this.

Lisa and Stellamaire - you are brilliant - I can not believe my luck.
The "missing link to ireland" - I should have said I was hoping to find a place in Galway - thinking it may have appeared on a death certificate with reference to her father - clutching at straws on this one.
I will certainly chase up all of these things - including the John P Conlon - I can have a look this end and see what I can turn up.
Again thanks so very much for what you have done for me.
Ashe ;)

Thanks Beg - I wondered about the process. Thanks for the explanation - will need to do more homework - thanks

Australia / Re: Death Certificate WA - can't read part
« on: Monday 15 July 13 12:09 BST (UK)  »
This list and participants are brilliant.
I wish that I possessed the wealth of knowledge that some of you guys do.
I didn't know about Queenstown/Cobh - so that explains why I couldn't find the city/town.
Annep - thanks so much - it appears that it was Jane Neagle - I loved that backup support of your look up.
Many thanks for your quick and fantastic insight.
