COMPLETED Another Henehan brick wall
« on: Saturday 12 March 11 11:39 GMT (UK) »
I've been researching the Henehan family in Normanton, Derby. Thanks to help from rootschatters, I've accounted for all of them bar one. Margaret Mary Henehan was born in Portsmouth in 1890 to James and Honor Henehan. The family eventually settled in Derby and she is on the 1901 census but I can't trace her after that, though the rest of the family are in the 1911 census. I have searched census, BMD and immigration records to no avail, and in Ireland and the USA as well as there are family links in both places. The spelling does vary between Henehan, Henahan, Hannahan and anything in between! which has made the search even harder.
I did wonder how complete are BMD records, for example were any destroyed in WW2? Not sure where to go next.

Hi Nell

I think I found her in the 1911 census - she is Leeds Yorkshire and is transcribed as Margaret Mary Henshaw - though when you look at the census you can see it is quite clearly
Henehan, she is a Railway Refreshment Room Attendent at the Queens Hotel.

Hope this helps  ;)
Cheers
Jan
