Seeking help to trace Nora (Norah) Fox (born Creaven or Craven) Galway
« on: Wednesday 17 January 18 12:45 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to help build the Fox/Creaven family tree. Thomas Fox was married to Nora Creaven in Dublin on 4th Jan 1918. We are trying to find information on her life from this point.
Her father was Patrick Creaven born 1871 and her mother was Ellen Creaven (Born Reilly)
Tom and Nora's marriage certificate states that Patrick was a cattle dealer and he lived on Ballygaddy Road, Tuam, Co. Galway.

 Any help from the Creaven side of the family would be much appreciated.

Hello and welcome.

It does help if you post any useful information.
Here is the marriage which gives her father as Patrick.

Have you followed this line?

Do you not have Thomas after his marriage?

Hi, yes we have followed this line but this does not give us details on Nora. We do not have a link to the Creaven side of the family and are trying to establish this with her descendants.

The same family in 1911

When I asked about Thomas after marriage, I meant do you have Nora also? This might help with her year of birth.

Looking at Patrick’s occupation, I would think that family is very possible.

Yes, thanks the one I posted at reply #4, hallmark.

I think the occupation ‘Calf jobber’ could translate to ‘cattle dealer’.

Thanks for the Loughrea information  :)

Norah’s birth was registered in Tuam though.
