Good find re Henry Eoghan O'Brien. I think he is still in Horwich in 1911 according to index but according to the Peerage, his son was Brian.
Brian Eoghan O'Brien was born in Ormskirk district 1907.

Thank you for all of the info: Henry was quite a man and I'm beginning to put all the pieces of the jigsaw together, thanks to your help; greatly appreciated.

He also always used his middle name, Eoghan, not his first name.
