Hi all

A million thanks as you seem to have found the correct one. 

Is there any way of knowing what Abode - Workhouse meant?  Could Mary have been working there or would you think she lived there due to hardship.  How can I find out?

Yes, that's the correct lady who died in Limerick.

Kindest regards

LH

Hello again

Is there any way of discovering which Workhouse my Mary was associated with?
Maybe I could then search records....if they exist.

Any snippet of help would be very gratefully received.

Thanks

I happen to be interested in this family too and have a copy of the birth certificate of Thomas William Bonehill.  The Mother is shown on the birth certificate as Mary Bonehill formerly Hanna of Great Bolton. Where is Great Bolton and why mention it I wonder?
Other evidence I have indicates strongly that she was Mary Hannen born in Limerick, Ireland.
Any advice on this would be gratefully received.

Hi all

Thanks to Christine53, I now know Thomas and Mary Bonehill had a son-

William Thomas Bonehill
Baptism 1 June 1883 St James , New Bury , Farnworth , Lancs.
Abode:  Union Workhouse

Mary (nee Hannan) had earlier given birth to a daughter (Mary) in Ireland in 1873 and we would like to know whether young Mary was also living at the Workhouse?

Do Workhouse records exist and which Workhouse??   

Not being familiar with UK records, this is like looking for a needle in a haystack. 

Kindest regards
