Cornelius Bonner
« on: Thursday 20 October 11 23:06 BST (UK) »
Looking for information on Cornelius Bonner who was a private in Captain John Paley’s Company of the 1/71st Regiment of foot, which took part in the British Invasion of the River Plate in 1806-1807.  The Master Rolls records states that he remained in South America. Also on the Master Rolls was a Theophilus Bonner a private in Captain Falconer’s Company of the 1/71st Regiment of foot and I assume, might be his brother or cousin.  Cornelius Bonner would probably have been born around 1781-1786.  I would like to find out his place of birth and life before joining the 1/71st Regiment of Foot and hear from anyone who may have him in their family tree.

Any information is appreciated.
Bonner

Hi,

I now have little more information from my original message of 2011.

I am looking for any information on these two people both from Ireland and most likely Catholic. Both are either brothers or cousins and they both joined the British Army and fought in the British Invasion of the River Plate in 1806-1807.

Cornelius Bonner born around 1781 to 1786 Ireland, died in Uruguay in 1861 and

Theophlius Bonner born 1787 London Derry, Ireland and died in 1809 place unknown.

I would like to have their parish birth records detail or find someone who have these people in their family tree.

Thank you and any help is appreciated
Bonner

If you are still looking for information on Cornelius Bonner, I can probably help.  Let me know if this is still an active query and whether you have information on his family in Uruguay which I can help with too.

Hi Robert,

Yes, my query is still very much active and any information is much appreciated. 

From your Christian name I gather you might have been in contact with Ernesto in URUGUAY. If this is the case please contact me on my private mail. If not my apologies.

This was a learning curve for me, the lesson learnt late was to search for alternative spelling. OXFORD NAMES COMPANION gives Bonner see Poyner a norman name ‘handy with their fists’
the irish records include Poyner eg in Co Monaghan (1847-64)  as well as many Bonner
Genes Reunited gives before 1750

Genes Reunited see http://www.GenesReunited.co.uk     Dunlow Co Donegal seems to be the oldest record for Donegal the tree holder first name is given. you join, ask permission to see tree etc
William   Bonner   1730   Ireland? ...   No   Jane   
Mary   Bonner      1730   Ireland? ...   No   Jane   
Jane   Bonner      1685   Dublin, Ireland ...   No   Geoffrey   
Eithne   Of Ireland      740   Dublin, Ireland ...   No   Michael   
Patrick   Bonner   47   Dunlow, Donegal, Ire...   No   Sandra

irish records give

could any of these be relatives - the BONAR spelling seems interesting, allow for the enumerators ear and experience

In Griffith there are Cornelius Boner listed perhaps a stronger clue for location and then church records
1. Galwolie townland Lettermacaw parish looks like more than one property
2. Madavagh townland Lettermacaw parish

Use www.askaboutirelandgriffiths valuation and you may be able to see map on same site showing the boundaries of the house about 1857-8
more luck

Hi BallyaltikilliganG,

Just got back after being out of action from the forum so my apologies for not seeing earlier your response. 

Thank you so much for the information I will look into it.  In the past have looked at the Flax growers of Ireland but hard to see which as I don't have his parents name.

Once I have gone through the information you have given me I will let you know what I came up with.

Regards

Maria
