    1. [IRL-CORK-CITY] Re: IRL-CORK-CITY Guest-Johnson births - about 1817-9
    2. Elizabeth W Knowlton
    3.     Well, David,  this family has certainly been well-represented in publications and in research since Google searches turned up a great deal of information and old articles about Guest and his son, TRJ, who could not have been more than 25 or so when a practicing surgeon in Australia.     My thought was that the mother's surname was Johnson, one of the most common with English speakers, or had been chosen for that very reason.  If Guest was not willing to marry the woman but continued his relationship through two pregnancies, I assume she was not of his same class or an angry father or other male relative would have forced him into marriage.  It just seems unlikely that you will ever identify the woman, born at least by 1800.     TRJ's trouble in Australia with salacious publications makes him sound very well educated before he left Cork, also very irritating and uncontrollable.     I notice that his father married a Miss H Biggs of Bandon in late 1820 and died in 1837, thus leaving the rest of the Guest family to get rid of the two illegitimate children.     At least one tree has the mother assumed to be a Johnson. Did you write this piece? https://www.geni.com/people/Dr-Thomas-Revel-Johnson-MRCS-AKA-Thomas-Revel-Guest-II/6000000036610418328 Looks like the most complete synopsis of what has been done as of a year ago.

    1. [IRL-CORK-CITY] Guest-Johnson births - about 1817-9
    2. G'day, Looking for any information about Thomas Revel Guest fathering two illegitimate children in Cork City around 1817-9. Son's given name was Thomas Revel Johnson, daughter's was Sarah Johnson. After the father died, the two children were "shipped off" by the Guest family to the colonies (NSW/Australia) about 1840. Father Thomas Revel Guest was representative for Ireland of the Dowlais Ironworks in Wales (largely owned and managed by the Guest family) at time of the son and daughter's births. The origin of the 'Johnson' surname is a particular mystery for their descendants. Thanks for any clues. David Stitt, Chatswood, NSW.

Can you help me I'm looking for my 2nd great grandfather James Sheehan born in Cork about the 1825 or 1827 he parents were farmers. He was in the North Devenshire Foot Regiment when he came to Sydney New South Wales Australia in 1845 to the 1855 he got married to Mary Ann Josephine Hayward in 1855 in Old South Head Rd Sydney.

    3.     After spending a bit of time getting all my lists running again, I heard from others and on other lists that Rootsweb will close them all down on March 2.  This means that you have time between now and then to post to the list or answer someone else's question.     After that, supposedly, the Archives of each list will still be on the Internet, you just will no longer be able communicate with anyone interested in your topic.     I just checked a few posts in an archives and see that there will be no way to contact the posters because our emails do not show.  Anything I post before the March 2 date will have my email.  Without this kind of communication, I would have missed decades of useful sharing.     At the moment my database is on the (embarrassing) Beta version of RootswebWorldconnect; however, unlike the original version, it gives you no way to contact the owner, really discouraging.  For anyone interested, it turns out the old title of my database is still up there (Foley, Apperly, Knowlton, Smith); but if you were searching for it, you would have to look for Winspeare, what they call it. -- Elizabeth W Knowlton

    1. [IRL-CORK-CITY] Four Courts 1922 Dublin fire "replacement"
    2. Elizabeth W Knowlton
    3. There is a new and exciting project happening in Dublin. The aim is to try to replace the lost archives from the Four Courts fire in Dublin in 1922. The second phase of the project has just received funding. All the details are here: https://beyond2022.ie/ I have not read all of this.  However, I remember using (on films) 19th century research done in the Four Courts building that the researchers then made available to the rest of us after the fire. Some of it is quite famous.  Now with computers and digitization, I should think that masses of such research could be brought together to make more of a whole. -- Elizabeth

    3. Trevor,     On the Irish 1901 census, Jane Pullan is a servant, aged 18, in the household of Arthur Wilson She is Church of Ireland (Anglican), was born in Cork City, and can read and write. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/North_East_Ward/Waterloo_Place/1103241/ The Irish censuses for 1901 and 1911 are basically the only ones extant.     Peter is correct that all other Pullans are in Co. Antrim and Dublin and were born there or in England; they are all CofI.     The one exception is Mary Pullan, a Roman Catholic, aged 65, born and living in Co. Tipperary (nearer Cork), a widow living in an institution for widows kept by nuns.  She seems too old to be Jane's mother but could be related in some way.

    3. My email was not about Griffith's Valuation which I have no problem with. My question is has anyone had any experience using the new indexes to Registry of Deeds online at family search ?

There might be a newer one. Good luck! It's still complicated, but read the first pages of each section carefully.

    3. Hi Guy, I have been following your search for Walter Percival and have found 3 records on FMP that relate to him, most of the information you appear to have. Note that the last number in the sequence is slightly different from that at TNA. Take note of the service number as that is important. WO97/4832/70 Walter Percival Finn, Service no 2936 Born 1871 Cork Ireland attested 5 September 1885 age 14 in the King's Royal Rifle Corps, discharged 4 September 1897 after 12 years service. It also gives his wife and date of Marriage as well as the names and dates of the children's birth. WO97/4832/68 No 1171. Attested 12 April 1900 in the Royal Rifle Reserve Regt. His trade was musician, he suffered from what appears to be scoliosis of the spine. Discharged 7 August 1905 his total service being 17 years 117 days and he had a pension plus bounty of 11 pounds WO97/4832/71 Royal Rifle reserve Regt No 1171 has the same information. WO 97s will not tell you anything about his parents. The lads that joined the army before age 18 were drummers. No help with Elijah, parents are never mentioned on WO97s. Check that there are additional records available at Kew as it could be a futile exercise.

My wife and I have already started talking about a visit to Kew some time this year to look through Walter Percival FINN's service record, although we're not sure if we can wait that long! We went there some six years ago and found it most rewarding. We're going to order his death certificate first and see if that settles any matters.

It seems certain that a visit to The National Archives in Kew to locate Walter Percival FINN's army service record would answer a lot of questions. For now, that idea will have to go on hold - yes, we live in the UK, but unfortunately a long way from London! The army papers that we do possess for him are less informative than his service record promises to be. We have his signing-up papers, which sadly do not list his next of kin or his date of birth (merely his age), and his application for a pension at the end of his army career. We believe he left active service finally in August 1905. Out of the blue, we stumbled across a burial record for a Walter Percival FINN in Greenacres Cemetery, Oldham dated 21st January 1907. Until then we had no reason to connect him with Oldham, so it might still be a false lead. However, various pointers give us reason to believe it is him: his name is quite an unusual one, his age at death was given as 35, which ties in well with what we know of his year of birth, and he had led an itinerant lifestyle with the British Army (including Gibraltar, South Africa, India, and Portsmouth), so why not Oldham?! Furthermore, his wife, Mary Ellen FINN declared herself as widowed in the 1911 census for Dublin. It seems to add up but isn’t yet water-tight! If any of you still reading this ramble are brave enough to give us another nudge and share more suggestions, we would be most grateful! And thank you for your tips on useful websites. ________________________________ From: IRL-CORK-CITY <irl-cork-city-bounces+jgap=hotmail.co.uk@rootsweb.com> on behalf of Janet Kirwan <janetkirwanriky@aol.com> Sent: 25 February 2017 11:13:11 To: irl-cork-city@rootsweb.com Subject: Re: [IRL-CORK-CITY] Walter Percival FINNhis Why do you think he died in Oldham? Did he die whilst in the army? His service record will answer that question. Marriage by licence suggests one of them being under age i.e. Under 21 or pregnancy or being in a hurry due to an imminent posting.m A death certificate can be obtained through the GRO Southport cost £9.25 sterling. I belonged to the Cork Genealogy Society for many years and got a lot of help via the websites they suggested. I have many Cork ancestors but no longer belong as I found ancestors elsewhere. Cost used to be £15 sterling per annum but maybe considerably more now due to falling pound! You have not said which country you are coming from? I find FMP better for Irish ancestors than Ancestry. You can also try googling places of interest to you for further information. GENUKI Ireland plus town or village is a good start. Rootsweb now under Ancestry.

We have access to Ancestry and FindMyPast through the local library, but websites which help specifically with Irish family history would be very welcome, not just for the FINN family but for other Irish relations in our family.

The first page of his army record ask all the questions such as where were you born, date of birth and occupation. Most records will also give you next of kin and if in the army many years will usually give you marriage details and children born/died whilst in service. Not all service records have survived. For those records that have survived, those pre 1914 are with FMP and those records post 1914 are with Ancestry. I have found soldiers on both and my Irish ones have been very informative. TNA Kew have all the surviving records which you can access for free if you can get to Kew easily. Fermoy and Kilworth Co Cork were major places for barracks, though I am sure there were others.
