Agreed; also, the margin note is interesting – the clerk probably means gemellae/gemellas / twins but it looks like ‘gaminas’ which is quite different (urchins).
Not a name I had ever come across, though there are a few in the 1901 census, both male and female intriguingly.
I believe this to be my great grandfather Edward Connell's baptism record on 10 June 1832.
Anyone have an idea of the sponsor's names? I think the parents are Patt or Patk Connell and Mary Kilbride.
Thanks in advance.
Yes to Patt Connell and Mary Kilbride; sponsors are Edw(ard) Connell and Mary Connell.
Thanks for that
Thanks everyone for your help. Sorry for the delay in replying to ye. By using all of your helpful replies, we have:
I: (a.) ? of the blood, 5 days.
(b.) Phthisis, 5 days.
II: ? galloping consumption and jaundice, galloping consumption, 14 days.
I'll make a post soon in the Irish forum to see if they can fill in the remaining question marks. Thanks again everyone.
Part hand-writing part history query.
People on this prison register from 1920 arrested for "offences under the ROJR" Although it could be an S and the FMP transcription says ROIR.
could it be Restoration of Order in Ireland Act ?
Very possibly. After seeing this prison record, I looked at the military archive collections, and he has an extensive file. Active as a teenager in the Rising and the civil war.
Here's another please.
Groom's father's profession?
Not seeing a link?
Yes, boards seems to have eaten it when it was down there briefly.
It won't let me upload something. I'll try again in a few mins.
Ah I see the problem it's a too big because it's a colour image.
It's the second marriage on the below.
Link instead so you can see other handwriting on the page.
I think it's Gardener, though spelled 'Gardiner'.
I agree with gardener, but I'd like to see a few more examples of that (Theobald Butler) celebrant's writing to be sure of his 'G's. I think the spelling is correct, it's a 'squeezed 'e' as he always dots the 'i' (spinster, Patrick, etc.) and there is no dot over the Gardener. Is her father a Sailor, Tailor or Jailor?
