Could this be the marriage of Thomas Senior:
Church: St.Patrick’s, Belfast RC
Thomas Nolan age 26
Address: Belfast Barracks
Occ: Drummer 80 th Regiment
Father: Thomas Nolan
Occ: boot maker
Thanks for all your replies. Have got Thomas seniors records and gone through them with a fine tooth comb.
Could I have got the wrong parent for the younger Thomas? I could only find Thomas Senior, who I assumed was the father, as he was in the 80th and stationed in Hong Kong between 1872 and 1876
Hi, I’m relatively new to researching my Irish roots, and would like to know. The best source to search St.Michaels, Limerick.
I’ve found some
I’m trying to find more information about Thomas Nolan, b. 18th Sept 1841 St. Michaels parish, Limerick.
He enlisted in the army at Fermoy in Sept 1855...
Thanks Elaine. I've also searched and searched the Howarth/Holt/Shore families but found nothing either. Never thought about Irish name being a 'no no'! lol John Nolan put his adoptive father down on his marriage cert.
Many Thanks for that Rupert. I'm at a loss of where else I could look for information of John Nolan/Swain/Hopkins in his early years to tell me a little more about him.. so if anyone has any ideas that would be great!!
Hi I'm Tracy and I'm trying to trace my paternal grandfathers roots.
The family story about my grandfather is a little vague, as he once said that he didn't want to talk about his early life.
He maintained that his mother was an Irish singer who had a fling with an army officer and was so keen...
