Lewis Wolverson died Ireland 1902.
« on: Wednesday 19 June 19 11:02 BST (UK) »
Hi, Im looking for info on the family connections for Lewis Wolverson who died in Dublin Ireland aged 54 in 1902.
Lewis and his son Henry arrived in Ireland and stated on Irish 1901 census they were born Staffordshire, Lewis son Henry was also known as Harry.

Henry/Harry married in Cork to an Elizabeth O'Donavan in Nov 1894.

 Harry Martin Wolverson was born in March 1899 to the couple, fathers name Thomas Harry Wolverson.
The couple also had another child Lewis Harry who was born in December 1895 but died 6mths later.

Lewis died aged 54 in Dublin in 1902.

Henry/Harry died aged 36 in Dublin 1910.

Elizabeth died aged 43 in Dublin in 1916.

Im interested in gaining the history on Lewis and Henry/Harrys Wolverson's family in the Staffordshire area prior to their arrival in Ireland.

Thank you.

I see Lewis is a widower on the 1901 Ireland census so this could be the death for Elizabeth

Mar 1898 Birmingham

It seem's that Lewis had a variety of Professions during his working life.
In ireland on his son Harry's/Henrys marriage cert, it states Lewis as a 'Victualler', on his death cert in 1902 states he was an 'Undertaker'.

Coincidentally the Christian Name 'Martin' also turns up later in the Family in Dublin.
