    Samuel Gunning

    Recently I've been told that my 4x great granddad was Samuel Gunning born 1765 in Co Down.I can't find his wife or any information about him. His son,James,was my 3x great grandfather born 1785,he was a farmer so,maybe his father was too .I've never found any siblings of James,is there any way...

    Thank you both for going to the trouble of looking up Easter's death.As you both say the age is wrong,if she died in 1880 aged 18 she would have been born in 1862 and Anna was born abt 1856. I will try PRONI again to see if they have anything.I've thought that maybe she wasn't Thomas' and he...

    Oops,I made a mistake with Timothy's birth,it was 1889,the same for Hannah. The rest of the info is correct. I looked on the 1841 census but I couldn't find Edmund or his brother John,Help there would be good.Thanks.

    Yes, Edmund's parents were Timothy Wear 1779-1840 and Hannah Boothe 1780-1839.When Hannah died Timothy remarried in Rotherham,and died there.I did know where he was buried but I can't remember. Edmund would have been about 8 when his mother died an 9 when his father died.1840 is a year before...

    Recently I received a copy of my great x2 grandparent's marriage in Newtownards.They were Robert McCafferty and Esther Hollinger married in 1845.I always thought that Robert's father was also Robert but on the certificate it has James. Some time ago I received marriage and baptism records from...

    herbert henry bunch

    Yes,I thought of Guildford,so I looked on their site but there's no access to the book of remembrance.I've thought of Woking and Aldershot.There is a book of remembrance for one of them but he's not there.It's possible that my gran didn't put anything in the book she was a character but I think...

    I found Thomas Downie and his son David.Thomas was born in 1846 in Coylton Ayrshire.His wife was Rachel Horn from Bothwell.David was born 1888 in Glasgow.It looks as though they were well to do as they lived in Lyredoch St in Kelvin which is a posh part of Glasgow also they had a servant...
