Flynn - Baslick, ROSCOMMON
« on: Sunday 02 November 08 13:19 GMT (UK) »
Hello chatters,

A James Flynn of Baslick, Roscommon, born about 1797/98 enlisted in the Madras Artillery and sailed from Chatham, England, for India in 1822. He died in India.

I know it will be difficult, but I would like to research my ancestor. Any starting points?, please.

Hi John,

The birth date of my James Flynn is an estimate from the various HEIC records.
These are, recruitment register, depot lists, muster rolls, marriage entry, casualty register, burial record.
Copies of these records were obtained from LDS films. At enlistment James is shown as a labourer. As the name is so common, and his parents names are not on any of the records I have listed, I have been unable to make further progress.

Hi John,

My ggm was a Fanny Flynn.  Her father was James. I traced backwards from myself, using death certificates/records. A lot of hunting through Family Search. org., and again using the resources and films of the LDS.
John, after you have posted 3 times on Rootschat you can send me a personal message. I will then give you a lot more info., and can attach docs. etc. if you wish.

HI frank,  does any thing here match your findings ?

some info for you on the james flynn i am still trying to verify as a relative,

i have found two baptism certs for children born to james flynn (bombadier / 3rd madras artillery) but to two seperate women  -
(1) elizabeth born to james and izabella flynn 1831 
(2)  james flynn born to james flynn and margaret rothwell ( illegitemate / born out of wedlock) 1834.

i have traced our family back to a  james flynn born 1834 but i cant confirm that james and margaret are the correct parents until my next visit to the british library.  - i will be pleased to contact via p/ms if any thing here is relevant to yourself regds john

Hi John,

James and Issabella married on 27 Nov 1824. Elizabeth born 31 Oct 1831. Fanny born 12 Apr 1844. James died in 1852. I don't know how many children were born to their marriage.
I have been concentrating on Issabella and didn't record the source for Elizabeth birth. At the moment using internet research mainly and cannot find any other references other than Issabella's death in 1859.
On the 1832 muster roll 3rd Batt. artillery his list regimental No. is 650.
On his death in 1852 his entry in the European Veterans register is listed as No. 1942.
If I find anything new I will keep you informed. Hope you have some success at the BL.
