Thomas Henry Cavanagh
« on: Thursday 02 September 21 17:59 BST (UK) »
Hi, looking for birth and parentage of the above. Believe the following is correct.

1933 died aged 59 Liverpool aged 59
1911 census aged 38 born Liverpool, with wife Margaret
1901 census aged 27 born Liverpool, with wife Margaret
1896 marries Maragret Spruhen/an in Liverpool
1891 census--possibly aged 17 born Liverpool with possible parents Thomas & Elizabeth & siblings.

Any help would be appreciated.

Catholic Marriage as Kavanagh.
Father Thomas and a witness is Mary Elizabeth Kavanagh.
Address for groom and witness, 18, Southwell Street.

After heywood's post things have moved on again but now stuck at another hurdle.

The address of 18, Southwell St found Thomas with a wife Lily (who I think is Elizabeth) and 3 of his children John Annie & George.

Mary Elizabeth C/Kavanagh one of the witnesses to Thomas Henry's marriage is Thomas's sister born c1877 (24.4.1877) according to 1939 register. She married twice, 1899 to William Sinnett and 1905 to James Molyneux. On both occassions father is recorded as Thomas Cavanagh-occ-Carter.

Believe to have found Thomas/Elizabeth and 4 children in 1881 recorded on Anc as Devaney ref 3684 145 48.

1871 census -- a good contender for Thomas ref  3828 127 17--occ - Carter in timber yard.

This leaves me now stuck finding

a. A marriage for Thomas/Elizabeth possibly between 1871-1874 to an Elizabeth ?

b. 5 children with a common mothers maiden name
Thomas Henry c 1874
Mary Elizabeth c 1878
John(Joseph) c1879
George (aged 2 months on 1881 census)
Ann/Annie c1883-- a probable witness to sister Mary Elizabeths marriage in 1905.

Again any help always appreciated.

There is a Catholic baptism for Thomas Henry Devanna 1873 with mother Elizabeth Edwards
Birth registration - Thomas Devanagh shows mother as  Edwards, as does George Devaney in 1881.
Perhaps not your family or change of name  ???

heywood, many thanks for the steer, think you cracked it with name change. On 1911 census Thomas & Elizabeth have been married 39 years. Also recorded were 7 children born, 4 still alive 3 died. I believe the below to be correct with regards to children's birth's recorded on GRO

Thomas Henry DEVANAGH dq 1873
Ann DEVANAGH jq 1875      died aged 1 as Anne Cavanagh sq 1876 W Derby
Mary Elizabeth DAVANNY jq 1877
John DAVANNY mq 1879
George DEVANEY mq 1881
Ann DEVANNY jq 1883
Catherine DEVANNAH sq 1885  died aged 0 mq 1886 as Catherine Devannah Toxteth Park

All have mmn Edwards
