Hi Anne

Are you 'yellabelly' because if so we exchanged messages in June 2009 when I enquired about Sarah having see her name in your tree. Her age is stated as 67 in the 1911 census so it appears she would have been born c 1844. (When I was going through the Parish Baptism register I worked backwards from 1880 and have yet to get back that far)

In your tree John 'James' Harpur's d.o.b is stated as 29/01/1872 rather than 24/09/1872 and so next time I'm in the library I'll check the date in the register as I may have overlooked this particular entry.  The date of baptism you have recorded for John though is definitely incorrect as children were baptised straight away in those days and the 1875 entry actually relates to another sibling - James b 28/11/1875 not John. Again I'll double check the details.

The 1911 census states that James & Sarah had 10 children, 9 still living. Your tree lists 9 children so the 10th is most probably Johanna b 1877 as stated in my earlier post.

I've never heard of the Glynn cemetery and it does seem odd that when James Harpur died in 1924 he was not buried in Crosstown as you would have expected if someone was living in William Street when they died.   

My mum has confirmed that when she lived in Fishers's Row (1940 - 1948) the Harpur family lived 'next door' although there was a gap between the two houses. The ffrench family lived the other side of her.

Regards

Thanks for those dates.  The ones I had came from a family member who lived in Dublin.  He wrote to my father in Liverpool sometime in the 1980s, asking for information.  He then sent me the dates and also said about Glynn.  I thought perhaps Sarah had come from outside the town.  I think I have a pic of the metal cross on their grave in my site.  When I visited grandads house in Fishers Row, Rattler and Margaret lived next door, to the left and I thought Jim Fortune and his wife lived on the right side.  I do remember the Ffrench family as I played with Pat Ffrench who was like me on holiday from England.  I will send a message to my cousin, another Harpur and see what she makes of it all.  Anne

Thanks Ger.  No one seems to know why he was buried there.  I assumed Sarah was from that area.  I have no other knowledge of her other than she married James.  Steve, yes I am yellabelly and I now remember we had contact last year.  I do not have any documents to show grandads full name but to my knowledge there are no other Bartholomews in the family.  Anne

Hi All
Noticed your posts on the Harpur family of Wexford town I am looking for information on a Mary Wade (nee Harpur) daughter of John Harpur of Bride Street Wexford who married a Pierce Wade on 30/9/1867 (witnesses were William Byrne and Ellen Malone). Mary and Pierce had a daughter Mary born 24th march 1869, baptised 25th march 1869 witnesses John Wade and Catherine Harpur. I noticed in some of the posts the names Mary Wade and Catherine Harpur and wondered if this has any connection to your Harpur family mentioned.
