Residents of 22 Tregunter Rd Sth Kensignton circa 1919.
« on: Tuesday 30 June 20 21:20 BST (UK) »
Hi Im hoping that someone can possibly help me find out what happened to Catherine Delaney whose last known address in 1919 was at 22 Tregunter rd South Kensington.

What I know of Catherine was that she was born in the Curragh military camp Ireland 30th May 1894, her father was Jeremiah Delaney who was a labourer/army reservist, her mother was Mary Clancy nee Mullaly.

On the 1901 census she aged 6 yrs is living with Parents and brother Thomas aged 5, at James St, Newbridge, Co Kildare

In 1911 she is 16 has moved to 13 Mount Tallant ave Dublin employed as a servant by James Sheils and his wife.

Her father dies in 1913 in Kildare and the next contact I have is in 1919 giving 22 Tregunter Rd Sth Kensington London as her address, by now she is 19 yrs old.

Another address that she sends dated August 20th (no year) gives Upper Brook St,Park Lane, London as an address.

From here the trail goes cold, the family know nothing of what happened to her.
By all accounts the address given would have been in affluent area, Id be grateful for any help in tracing Catherine history, Im aware that it is possible that she may have returned to Kildare/Ireland, but there is also a likelihood that she may have stayed in England and possibly married.
Thanking you.

Thank You, I wonder is there a family link to the other address at Upr Brook St Park Lane which Catherine also mentioned in letters home?
I was thinking along the lines that if she was in service she may have been working for the same Family who possibly had links to both address's?

As she would not have been able to vote at that time she would not appear on electoral registers. 

Have you discounted this marriage

If Rosie is on the right track, there is a June 1923 Passenger List for Edward Priggen (artist), aged 26 with wife Catherine aged 23 (which doesn't match your Catherine I know) and son Patrick aged 1.
Destination Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Their London address is 19 Ledbury St, Peckham, SE15


Added:  there is also a Patrick Priggen death of a child born c 1922 in 1925 in Hackney.

Because of the name Kathleen rather than Catherine, Rosie?
Wouldn't that have been a common alternative for someone Irish?

There is an Edward Priggen, a Scene Painter, in the 1939 with another wife.  Coincidence?

Or is it the wrong marriage in the first place.....

I know we allow for quite a variance of age, but I think at that age and time it is unlikely to be 6 years out,
