That's a coincidence then because that particular William senior on the 1911 census was a Tinsmith in Cork as well --and had sons John and William, and a wife named Mary -- might he have married twice I wonder and the previous children been from the first marriage?

Also the William born July 1909 would only be 1 year old on 1911 census as it is supposed to be age last birthday.

Or am I missing something -- probably!

Yes it must be coincidence because I've seen the marriage in 1904 of William (not mine). He could have been married before I suppose but he still didn't have a son James in 1911. The only James Driscoll born in 1911 was the one with the mother's name of Dillon. Thank you

I am just trying to follow this and work it out  :)

I canít see the marriage for William and Mary - is his father John?

If so, is this the family in 1901 -living in Greenane, Cork
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/Greenane/Greenane_Lower/1148267/

I based this on your information re William snr in 1911 living with his mother
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Cork/Kilcullen/Killeenleigh/424444/

Is that him?

Yes this is my William senior. On the 1911 he states he's married with one child (not living with him). Don't know where his wife is (my great grandmother) or my grandfather William and brother John. Why was he not living with them? He probably says he's only got one child as his wife had a son by someone else before they married in 1908

It is a bit difficult, for sure.

For example these are William Driscolls who are Tinsmiths in 1911, including the married one living with his mother.
