Taylor, Duncan, Crosthwait and Craig
« on: Friday 28 January 05 16:28 GMT (UK) »
Second time I post in this forum. I hope I can get some response.

I'm searching for more information on the following persons living in Dublin (1772? - 1820):

Name                               Address

William Duncan, Esq        34, Charlemont Street, merchant
John Duncan, Esq              6, Granby Rd., merchant
James Duncan, Esq          17, Eccles Street (a Hospital now), W Indies Trader
Leland Crosthwait, Bart    Bank of Ireland, Bank Director
Rebecca Duncan
Agnes Duncan
Jane Duncan
Margaret Duncan

John Craig

David Taylor                      Eden Quay (agent of the Dublin, Glasgow &
                                         Cork Steam Packet Company). Edendale.

A son of William Duncan, James Duncan emigrated to Barranquilla, Colombia, South America, on or about 1815 and his brother William followed him later. James Duncan, the son, married Jane Anne Emily Dimmock in 1823 in Colombia and their two children were sent to Ireland (?) and/or England to study. I have reason to believe they lived with David Taylor in Edendale in the early 1830s... but I'm not sure.

The son of James Duncan, Esq., married a daughter of Leland Crosthwait and became the manager of the Bank of Ireland in Sligo. I have more info on him.

I've hit a brickwall trying to get more info/data on my ancestors in Ireland... it has been difficult. I'm interested in the mercantile trade in Dublin in early 1800s.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

Have you checked the entries for these gentlemen in the Dublin Directories? You could also check the newspapers. I think there is an index for early years that may show up something. Also if you have addresses, find out which church was nearest (are they Anglican?) and check the parish records.

Thanks.

I found some data in the records of a church but I've been unable to confirm.

What newspaper are on-line covering events in Dublin from 1776 to 1820?

I do not live in Dublin ... I live in Houston, TX.

Hi,

I guess what I'm saying is that there is very little you can do from Houston. There is little online and the best resource is your local family history centre an I don't think they have newspapers or Dublin Directories. You could try this new company archivecd who have started filming old books from Trinity.

Thanks. Will do.

Getting data out of Ireland is hard.

Best regards,
