Edward Haslam born 1805 in Ireland
« on: Sunday 08 March 15 10:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm new to rootschat and researching family history. Hope I've posted in the right place!

I've managed to research my maternal grandmother's family back to a Edward Haslam born in Ireland in 1805. In the 1861 Census, his occupation is stated as a Painter and he's married to Agnes a Laundress from Devon and they lived in Marylebone, London.  They had just one child recorded on this Census, Thomas born 1845.

I've not been able to find any information prior to Edward's birth using records from Ireland.

Any help would be appreciated on where to go next.  ???

Cash, Bethnal Green, Spitalfields, Shoreditch, London
Jones, Carmarthenshire?, Whitechapel, London
Sullivan, Cork or Kerry, Whitechapel, London
Flint - Shillington (Beds), St. Albans, Shoreditch, London.
Haslam - Marylebone, London (formerly Limerick, Ireland)
Nolan - Tipperary, Ireland
Walter - Somerset, England
Gunningham - Bristol, England
Fountain (possibly Huguenot descent) - Cross, Somerset

Unfortunately this is well before the start of civil registration in Ireland (1864 for births) and the earliest complete census is 1901.

Have a look at this topic for tracing Irish ancestors-

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Welcome to RootsChat! ;D

On the 1871 census, Edward states he is from Limerick.
Which helps narow things down a bit!

Edward's birth is before Civil Registration in Ireland, so you will be reliant on Parish Registers.
And for that you really need to know his religious denomination, and from which townland or parish?
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

Thank you both for your reply and the very useful information.  I didn't think it would be simple!  Yes, the fact that he was born in Limerick does narrow it down somewhat but looks like I have a lot more research to do.

Many thanks.

Hi Daisypetal

Thank you so much for this information, it's really useful for my research.  The only information I had on Edward and Agnes is from the 1861 Census which lists Edward (age 56) and Agnes (age 57) with their son Thomas aged 16.

Many thanks.

Hi,
EDWARD HASLAM is my Great Great Great Grandfather. I do believe he may have had a half brother called ROGER, who married MARY BOLAND.
My Grandfather is THOMAS HENRY HASLAM, born 1888 and died 1933. That was my mum's father. He died when she was just 10.
Just wondered whether you had found out any more?
Hope this is of interest.

Hi

Sorry Iíve just seen your reply. I havenít been active on here for some time. Your grandfather, Thomas Henry Haslam was my grandmotherís brother so I guess we are second cousins. Thatís such a great loss that your mum lost her father when she was just 10 years old.

I didnít realise that Edward Haslam & Roger Haslam were only half brothers.
Unfortunately Iíve not been able to find any information regarding their lives in Limerick, Ireland. It seems as if they never existed there at all. The only record I have is from Roger & Maryís marriage in Limerick City where their surname was stated as  Hayeslim.

I have taken a DNA test but so far it hasnít revealed much with that line of my family.

Have you managed to find out any more about their lives in Ireland?

Linda

Hi Linda,
It was great to hear from you. Second cousin, aye. May I ask who your mother/grandmother were? For Thomas Henry, I have down two sisters - Cicely (I love that name!) and Agnes Elizabeth. My mum used to tell me that her mum, Mary (who married Thomas H. Haslam) used to shop in Chapel Street market, where, when seeing her mother-in-law, Louisa, she would duck down behind a stall!! Louisa apparently didn't approve of my nan marrying her son. She wasn't good enough!! I do have a photo of Thomas Henry Haslam, my great grandad with his family, if you would like a copy.
Kind regards,
Jan
