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

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.
 Thanks.

Hello,
Just reading your posting on Rootschat.
I have a link to a Jordan family who lived at 1 Manders Terrace (mid to late 1800s) which I think is near Ranelagh. Mary Elizabeth Thornbury married Bejamin Jordan.
Mine link to the names Thornbury, Evans and Hawkins.
Do they ring any bells?
Kind regards
Jill

Manders Terrace is in Ranelagh south Dublin, and next to the Harcourt Street line and railway bridge, which was recently reactivated as part of the new Luas (light rail).

Dont know if you've already seen this, but the marriage of Benjamin & Mary Elizabeth and baptisms of several of thier children are included on www.irishgenealogy.ie

In addition to the Mander's Terrace address (1890), some other addresses in the Ranelagh area are mentioned - e.g. Oakfield Place in the 1880s .

Hi, you dont give an indication of the timeline you are looking at so I am not sure at what time in history you are looking for Jordans.

I am a Jordan from Dublin ( one of 8 children) - with my Jordan ancestry in Dublin going back 4 generations as follows:

William Jordan born Dublin 7 February 1940 to Lucy and Richard Jordan, Whitehall Dublin

Richard Jordan born Dublin 0 April 1912 to Andrew Bernard Jordan and Mary Hanlon of  Coles Lane, Dublin ( later Mobhi Road Drumcondra).

      Richard had lots of siblings as follows:
      Joseph 1908-1975
      William 1909 - /
      Christopher 1911 - ?
      Rosie ? - 2011
      May ? -
     Marsella dies 1948
     Daniel  ? - ?
     Andrew dies 2011

     Their family business was M Jordan and sons  - Furniture manufacturers of Granby Lane. Mary Hanlons family where shop owners & cab drivers - there is a connection somewhere there to the Fred Hanna shop (which was still in business when i grew up in Dublin)

Andrew Bernard Jordan born 21 June 1885 North Dublin City to Joseph Jordan and Mary laphen of Moore street / Monthjoy St, Dublin.  Their address in 1901 was North Dock.

       Andrews siblings include:
       Thomas Joseph 1872
       Joseph Daniel  1874
       Mary Catherine 1875
       Kathleen Mary 1878
       Daniel John  1879
       Bartholomew John  1883 -
       Emily / Amelia Christine 1887 -
       Annie circa 1890         
      Rosanna 1892
      1 other  deceased at 1911.

Joseph Jordan born circa 1852 in Clara, Offaly married to Mary Laphen from Dublin on 30.6.1871 Procathedral, Dublin. Josephs parents were Thomas and Catherine Jordan - Ballycumber, Offaly. Mary's parents were John and Eustace Laphen, Dublin.

dont know if any of that helps but you just never know!!  It seems that the Jordan's had big families !!!

This information may be of interest - My father was an upholsterer and my mother an upholsteress and worked for a William (Bill) Jordan who had an upholstery workshop in Granby Row in Dublin city centre. He worked there in the 1940-s to mid 1950s I think and I believe Bill Jordan lived in Glasnevin a north suburb, Regards, Andrew O'Rourke

Hi Andrew - this is interesting as my granddad (Dick Jordan) was a director of the company.

My dad is Bill ( william Jordan) living in Glasnevin north. ( I am one of his 8 children). He never had anything to do with the company as he became an engineer.

His dad was Richard (Dick) Jordan - a french polisher and director of their family business M Jordan and Sons - furniture manufactures of Granby Lane, Dublin - which operated until the 1970's.  His wife Lucy (nee Guilfoyle) was also originally a French polisher. They lived in Donnycarney / Whitehall until 1953 when a housefire killed 2 of their children. They then moved to Ballymun Avenue ( later renamed Glasnevin Avenue) and lived their until their deaths.

Richard had lots of siblings - listed in post above - but including a Willie Jordan ( this may be the William you are referring to?) .

Richards parents were Mary Hanlon and Andrew Jordan. The originally lived on Coles lane above their used furniture shop - with the manufacturing factory on Granby Lane. they later moved out to Mobhi Road, Drumcondra and there is some family there still I believe.

The Hanlons were an industrious family with records showing there involvement from 1880's in shop and house dealing, cab & car businesses - with a marriage to the Doyle family also involved in furntiure dealing.  Mary was the matriarch and lived to about 90. she ruled with an iron fist and it was her company - with her sons all involved in the business.  The Jordans were involved in upholstery. So a good combination of families!!

Andrew died 1941.  Mary raised the kids and the business by herself. ( strong business woman)

The business was wound up in the 70's - the advent of flat pack furniture killed the manufacturing industry. There are also rumours of one of the brothers fiddling the books and making of with profit - BUT Mary would not entertain this happening within the family - and eventually my grandfather isolated himself from them all - even though they all lived within a few km's of each other.  So despite their being millions of Jordans around drumcondra and glasnevin they had little to do with each other!! ( my dad does have some contact with a cousin or two but apparently no one wants to talk family history - too many skeletons, hardship and sadness.
