Leahy/Lahey, Hagan, Gurran family
« on: Tuesday 05 April 22 17:59 BST (UK) »
 I am researching my family history but not getting very far so would be grateful for any help.

What I know so far.

My great grandfather John Leahy married Mary Hagan at old Roman Catholic Cathedral in Middlebrough in1896 their parents were Jeremiah Leahy and James Hagan.

Jeremiah Leahy/Lahey married  Ellen Gurran in1874 registered in Stockton but was probably Middlesbrough, they were both born in Ireland.

Thanks

Jeremiah's father was Jeremiah and Ellen's father was Martin

Welcome to Rootschat  :D

Does this look like the correct family in the 1881 census?  Living at 3, Wrays Yard, Middlesbrough, Yorkshire.

Jeremiah and Ellen (Lahey) both born Ireland with four children John born 1869, Mary born 1871, Jeremiah born 1873 and Margaret born 1877.  All the children have their birthplace as Middlesborough, Yorks.

Jeremiah's occupation is given as Lab (labourer) wharf.

Registration district Middlesbrough
Piece number 4846
Folio 103
Page 26

Interesting to note that they married after three of their children had been born.

What information are you looking for?  Are you trying to go backwards to Jeremiah and Ellen's parents?
Ashford: Somerset, London
England: Devon, London, New Zealand
Holdway: Wiltshire
Hooper: Bristol, Somerset
Knowling: Devon, London
Southcott: Devon, China
Strong: Wiltshire
Watson: Cambridgeshire
White: Bristol
Windo - Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire

Hi,

I think this is them in 1891.

The enumerator has made some spelling mistakes and the ages are out but the children are right and they are living at the same address , 1 Wray's Yard in 1901.

It gives birth places for Jeremiah (written as Thomas) and Ellen :)


1891
1 Gray's Yard, off Mason St

LEAHY
Thomas     Head    67    Ironworks labourer    Templemore Ireland     
Ellen           Wife    62                                       Ballasaders        "
Mary          Daur    20                                       Middlesbrough Yorks 
Jeremiah     Son    17                                              "              "
Margaret    Daur    15                                              "              "
George    G-son    6m                                             "               "



I wonder if it's Templemore parish in Tipperary, Ireland

https://www.rootschat.com/links/01rft/



or Templemore parish in Derry (Londonderry), NI.

https://www.rootschat.com/links/01rfu/


There is lots of info about both using these links.


Ballasaders?


Regards,
Daisy

Ballisodare/Ballysadare, Sligo?
Ballaghaderreen Mayo/Roscommon?

Although they are not near each other.

There is this large group - i canít find them on Family Search to link and on Ancestry they are transcribed as Leakey with a correction by a member to Leahey. This is correct.

1871 4896/115/12
John and Catherine Leahey b Ireland with several children b Middlesbrough, including a Jeremiah 7 yrs. the oldest William is b Ireland.


Living with them is Jeremiah Leahey and ĎEvoní - Ellen? with children John 2 yrs, and Maria 6 months.

Thank you Daisy Petal,

I looked at Thomas but ignored it as name and ages didn't match but I will look at the links you provided.

Thank you Heywood,

Yes I think this my Jeremiah & Ellen, I will look at both places you provided.

Thank you both once again

Hi,

Sorry, I hadn't realised that the links I gave you were for a pay to view site.

You might have seen this website already, but just in case :)

https://registers.nli.ie/

Lots of scrolling to see the images, but it is free :)

Regards,
Daisy
