Peter Joseph Horan
« on: Monday 02 June 14 13:36 BST (UK) »
Hi Folks.
I am trying to find the parents, and any siblings, of Peter Joseph Horan. He was born around 1863 in Co. Wicklow and married in Stoke Damerel, Devon, in 1890.
In the 1891 census he, along with his wife Emily J, is living in Swansea. His occupation is a Corporal in the Royal Artillery.
In the 1901 census they are back in Stoke Demerel, along with their 5 children. He is now a Company Sargent Major.
In the 1911 Irish census he has retired from the Army and the family are living in Dublin.

I have no info before his marriage in 1890, or after the 1911 census. If anyone can add anything extra I will be very grateful.

There is a death in Cork for a Peter Joseph Horan in 1932 age about 63
and an Emily age 69 in 1944.
no match to those names on 1911 census for Cork so could they have moved.

There is a marriage in Dublin North for an Agnes Horan in 1917.
There are a few Agnes Horans in Dublin but their average age would have been 12 in 1917.

Thanks very much dathai. I have the 1911 Irish census entry for them and they are in Dublin. They must have moved to Cork after that.

Agnes was his daughter born 1893 in Swansea, while he was still in the army. Do you have any details as to what her husband's name was?

Sorry there are over 4000 marriages in Dublin North in 1917 it would take some considerable time to go through them plus you might get 4 matches to the volume and page number for a spouse.
The only way is to take a gamble on ordering the cert
Agnes Horan marriage Oct Dec 1917 Dublin North vol 2 page 489 this is sufficent information if you do decide to order it,you do not need to know the husbands name when applying.
