Well, it looks like Dermot had a sister Eliza who married in 1886 and the wedding took place in the parish of Fuerty in Roscommon. Her address is given as Boolybane in the Registrar's district of Athleague.

Mortar sounded more exciting but motor makes sense.

Maybe sober for the missing word?

Happy New Year.

Agree with D Boo above. Motor makes sense because he is RASC (Royal Army Service Corps). Woolich is primarily an artillery barracks but always had links with the RASC who had a barracks there also.

Thanks all, it's my great grand father's discharge papers from WW1. He served as an ammunition transport driver delivering ammo behind the front lines.

Injured twice ( minor injuries ) during his time served.

Trying to find out more info on where exactly he was based in France.

Hi can anyone make sense of the note at the end of the Baptism of Maria Joannes Graydon on this link

https://registers.nli.ie/registers/v...e/125/mode/1up (august 1874)



Also, do you think that the name Richard in the linked birth cert is a mistake? Looks like father's name in rather than Maria Joannes? Same record different name?

Was her father a non-Catholic?

Yes it looks like a mistake. These usually came to light later if applying for something you would need your birth cert for. The (5) underneath the name means they knew that should have been in column 5 (father's name).
Perhaps the lady registering the birth did not know what name the child had been given?

Hi Spurious...yes Church of Ireland...that makes sense now.

The names and location just threw me slightly, but dates etc fit Maria.

They don't have a marriage cert (that I can find), although 1911 census has them married 19 years (so around 1881) when their second child would have been born.

Thanks for the help, much appreciated.
