Thank you Heywood,

I will do that when I have finished up the line of enquiry here. Have just had it confirmed that the two families in 1901 and 1911 are related, by means of a land document. All good progress. I am based in Dublin. Also that your hunch about the three brothers working on land owned by John in 1911 is correct.

Still can't find a birth for Thomas in Ireland in 1884 - maybe he just was not registered!

Thanks again, AB

There is this which may be worth following up:

Ballina district Vol 4 pg 3 Jan/March 1906

'Thomas 1883 Boyd'

We had something similar a while ago on here and it does look as though for some reason, the person was either re-registered or registered late.

There is also a Patt 1884 and a John 1886 registered at the same time.

The odd thing is that Royal Irish Constabulary records (no other details) have these names and years for enlistment in 1906  :-\  (am now not so sure)

Thank you!  looks promising, as there is a suitable gap between John born 1882 and Eleanor b. 1885.

Marven (Looks more like Maurenn) Boyd 39 Born Scotland. Married at 21 years. Immigrated 1911 NA
