Dublin / Jordan Dublin (All)
« on: Tuesday 22 September 09 15:37 BST (UK)  »

I'm researching the family tree & am keen to know more about the Jordan family in Dublin.
 My grandad was William Jordan & he married Annie McDonald who recently died. William was 1 of 21 children, not all living. I know 1 brother, Thomas died aged 29 from TB. Another brother, Nicholas had a hump. Another brother, Joseph was known as Sophie for some unknown reason. He married a Lily Foyle from Carnlough Road, Dublin & they moved to England. Another brother, Paddy was a captain in the Irish Army & lived in a big house in Clontarf. Paddy had a daughter, Anna that I know of. I'd love to find her in particular.

Dublin / Bovenizers Dublin ( All )
« on: Tuesday 22 September 09 15:31 BST (UK)  »
  I'm researching my family tree & trying to find any Bovenizers who might be related to me.
My gran's maiden name was McDonald.1913-2009. Her mum was Annie Bovenizer & she was married to James McDonald. They lived at Cardiff Cottage in Finglas when my gran was born. I've looked at the 1911 census but can't find them on it. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place.
 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Armed Forces / Captain Paddy(Patrick) Jordan

 I've just found out that my great uncle Captain Paddy Jordan was in the Irish Army & died when he was in his 90's. I Googled his name & found a reference to him on the Irish Times website. Only problem is, I couldn't read the full article as I don't have subscription to the paper.
 Does anyone have any info on him for me please? My mum'd love to know more about him. All we know is he was a Captain in the Army & lived in a big house in Clontarf.

I am not sure now that the family listed on the census actually fit your timeline...

I cant see any way that Annie aged 9 on the form could have married (James McD) and had a daughter (also Annie) that could then have married (William J) in the earliest she could have been married would be about 1920


Hi Shane,

 Was thinking the same thing myself. And as these are the only Bovenizers listed in Dublin then perhaps the ones I'm looking for aren't from Dublin after all. I'll check back with the family to see if they have any more info for me.
 Thanks again,

Welcome to RootsChat.

In my experience, the more specific you can be about what you are looking for the better the help you will get.

Good luck with your research.


 Hi Dara,

 Thanks for all your help so far with my search, much appreciated.
Any idea how I go about looking for William's Army records etc?? All I've got to go on so far is he was born in 1889, died in 1965. Was stationed at Beggars Bush, went to India with his wife Annie. Family legend say's she had a baby on board ship & another in India. Been told he was a Sergeant Major but don't know if this is true or family legend.
 He had 4 daughters & 1 son. Nora, my gran died in 1978 aged 65. In 1911 census 2 daughters names were Mary bridget aged 2 & Margaret aged 0.

I would go for the birth cert of Margaret first to confirm we have the right match, then try to find William jnr's birth to see if the parents match up.

Annie's place of birth on the census looks to be Queens county - which is next door to Tipperary.


 Hi Shane,

 Thanks for your help again. If Annie was born in Queens county & it's next door to Tipperary then possibly that's where the family get the Tipperary connection from.
 Now, if I can get this PC to stop crashing for 5 mins I'll be able to get cracking again.

 Kind Regards,
