Robinson Family, Dunfanaghy
« on: Thursday 03 August 17 13:49 BST (UK) »
Hi

I have posted on the Donegal page then l saw this one and as a new member think l should have posted here first - sorry.

I have been researching my father's family for a year or two (after he passed away) but never seem to get very far.  My Dad didn't talk much about his family which hasn't helped.

So far I know:-

My Dad was born in Dunfanaghy 1943
His Mother Ellen was b 1912 to William Robinson and Margaret (Greer) she was his 2nd wife
William and Margaret also had  (I got these from the church records in Dunfanaghy)
Emily b 24/4/1908 d 27/4/1908 Dunfanaghy
Maggie Anne b 5/5/1909 Dunfanaghy
William b 23/3/1910 Dunfanaghy
Catherine b 27/3/1914 Dunfanaghy

William's 1st wife was Maggie Miller b c 1883 Dunfanaghy d 7/10/1902 Dunfanaghy
they had one child William b 6/4/1902 d 6/4/1902 Dunfanaghy

William Robinson b 8 Feb 1880 (1901 Census Kill, Dunfanaghy) d 1956
parents
William b c 1849 (1901 census)
Emily (maiden name Robinson?) b 1852 d 2/1/1905 aged 53
other children
Samuel b 7/10/1876 he married Catherine Miller (not sure if she was the sister of Maggie Miller) and they had 3 children
Samuel b 22/9/1908 Dunfanaghy
William b 1906/7 (census 1911)
Emily b ? (she was on the 1911 census but no age recorded)

Then the trail ends.  There were so many Robinson families in Dunfanaghy which also makes it hard and from what l can find out they were not related.

Any advice or help would be much appreciated.  TIA

It's better to have only one thread, this one would probably have been moved to Donegal.
Link to other thread, with replies.

Emily b ? (she was on the 1911 census but no age recorded)

You need to look at the image to see the ages in months

Emily is 10 months.

Hi just came across your message.  I too am looking at the Robinson family, Dunfanaghy who were fishermen.  I know there were lots of Robinson's in the area at the time who were not all related.

Many thanks
