Hi, I was wondering if someone would help me trace the parents, grandparents of Timothy John Connelly b.1846 Holborn London please. I believe the Connelly family came from Ireland but cant find them. Timothy married Eliza King in 1860 at St Andrews Church Holborn.

All help is much appreciated

His father was John -

groom's name: Timothy Connelly
bride's name: Elizabeth King
marriage date: 16 Dec 1860
marriage place: St. Andrew Holborn, Middlesex, England
groom's father's name: John Connelly
bride's father's name: William King
groom's marital status: Single
bride's marital status: Single
indexing project (batch) number: M00688-3

Are you sure that this is him because if he was born in 1846 he would only be 14 when he married??

Yes Lynski, I have all family members after 1860. Timothy dies in 1899 in St Bartholomews Hospital London.

Hi Joan, thats strange it states Timothy is the nephew of John Connelly???

EllenS

EllenS Report 23 Apr 2012 11:12

Would someone be able to see what the surname of John Connely's wife is please (Ellen)

Lynski

Lynski Report 23 Apr 2012 11:18

Perhaps he lived with his Uncle and named him as his father for his wedding??

That has been known to happen - people who grew up with their grandparents named their grandfather as father at their marriage.

It is not that easy to just see what the name of John's wife, Ellen, is.

Have you tried this site?
