Hi,

I've just discovered that my 2nd great-grandmother was called Rosanna Moneypenny (born cerca 1831) and she married a David Burrell in Lurgan, Co. Armagh on 7 January 1855. Rosanna's father was also Hiram Moneypenny, whose occupation was given as tailor.

I'm just wondering if Rosanna had any siblings and does anyone know who her mother was?
 
Many thanks

Russell


All I can readily see are tithe applotment transcripts (ie. I haven't seen the originals) for Drumcree civil parish dated 1828 in respect of Hyram Moneypenny in 'Mahon' and 'Hyrick' Moneypenny in Annagh, maybe the same man:

The Hiram Moneypenny previously mentioned in this topic who married Agnes Watson in 1859 was the son of a Charles Moneypenny, probably related (it seems like an Armagh cluster), but I don't know how.  You are entering challenging territory, for the existence of records online in this era (and indeed offline) is far from good, and where they exist, the content may not provide any conclusive answer.

The only Moneypenny I have ever heard about is that she was M's secretary in the James Bond films.
Cannot discuss M's job.

Any of those Moneypennys a blacksmith back then by any chance? The only Moneypenny that`s well known around Portadown is this place ->https://discovernorthernireland.com/things-to-do/moneypennys-lock-p675221
"Restored 18th Century lock-keeper's house, stables and bothy located on the Newry Canal. The stables contain a 'Life on the Canal' exhibition, which explores the history of the Newry Canal; the oldest summit level canal in the British Isles. Part of the lock-keeper's house, containing a typical early 1900s interior, is also open to the public (please note that the rest of the house is a private residence.

Moneypenny’s Lockhouse

Moneypenny’s lockhouse, stables and lock chamber are situated along the Newry Canal towpath (BT62 3RS). The lockhouse, named after the last lockkeepers to live in the house, has been beautifully restored. The gable end of the house includes a display on how the Moneypenny family would have lived in the 1800s.
