Thought I would post an update for those kind list members who have shown an interest in this thread. I was excited by the suggestion that Kershaw might have been my missing grandfather's assumed name: it made a lot of sense. So, I googled Kershaw and Limavady, located an individual's email address and fired off my enquiry. The person concerned was good enough to email me back with enough detail to remove his family from my search. He also told me that his was the only Kershaw family in the small town, and that the family had no history in the town which would coincide with significant dates in my grandfather's story. Back to the drawing board, but I feel quite energised to have been once again on the case.
