    Looking for Byron/Holmes

    Again thank you so much for all the help. Will probably never be able to confirm my thoughts 100% but think I am 99% correct in both Jane and Peter leaving their respective spouses and living together. Take care you all

    Looking for Byron/Holmes

    At last, think I have found Jane and Peter on 1891 census. They come under the transcription Byen Torline, but when I looked at the census itself it definitely looks like Byron Holmes. I really think that Peter and Jane were married to other people whom they both left and went to live together...

    Looking for Byron/Holmes

    Have found on 1861 census Jane Holmes b 1834 Dublin married to Joseph Holmes b1835 Southwark. They were married 7/6/1854 and had 3 children, Joseph 1854, Mary A 1857, Jane 1860 ( if this is the same family as the 1871 census Jane must have died before another Jane was born 1870). I am beginning...
