Joseph Graydon - Find my past
« on: Tuesday 24 January 17 01:11 GMT (UK) »
Hi there

I have a Joseph Graydon born abt 1785 in Ireland. Jospeh married Ann Morton abt 1830, I pressume in Ireland and on her death certificate (in Scotland)  it states that Joseph was a gunner in the Royal artillery.

Online I have found a Joseph Graydon born Killisher, Fermanagh who serves in the Royal Artiliary discharged aged 33.
Royal Hospital Chelsea Soldiers Service Documents 1760 - 1854 etc (WO 97/1-1271) Royal Artilliry Gre - Gre nd this information can be found on find my past. I have a subscription to Ancestry and it nothing comes up there. Searching find my past, nothing appears to come up on there either for the above related information. I don't have a subscription to find my past but thought something at least may have come up. Are there any suggestions for where else I may look for this information. I may have to resort to the Archives in Ireland.
I'm using the libraries internet at present so if I don;t reply for a dy or two, that will be why.

Thanks

You donít say what denomination Joseph was. If he was Church of Ireland (ie Anglican) then Killesher Church of Ireland parish records start in 1798. So you might find Josephís marriage (assuming his bride was from that parish) but the records donít go back far enough to find his baptism. Thereís a copy in PRONI (the public record office in Belfast). I donít think they are on-line anywhere. No other denomination has any records for the period you are looking at.

Looking at the 1901 census for the county, there were 52 people named Graydon. All were either Church of Ireland or Methodist. However Methodism didnít really get established in Ireland till the 1820s and so chances are all were Church of Ireland at that time.

If you go to the N.A. page and click on the FindMyPast link it takes you to the search page. Put in the name Joseph Graydon, search, and the 1st result seems to be the one you are looking for with 2 options to view records listed.

Hi There


Aghadowey...Thanks, I was able to get through the way you suggested.

Elwyn....Thanks. I have no clue what Denomination Joseph is, nothing on his death certificate indicates it but using your process I may be able to narrow things down a little. From the death cert his parents are James Graydon and Mary looks like Morton. I shall further investigate :)

Regards
