Catherine Travers -1802 - 1838

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Unknown Report 24 Jan 2013 20:07

Catherine (maiden name not known) died in 1838 at Guys Hospital London. She was married to James Travers and is believed to have had at least three children John 1830 - Catherine 1832 - Elenor 1834. There was 'family rumour' that her husband James (or his family) originated from Kinsale in Ireland. Many thanks for any help. Joyce

What info are you looking for?

GlitterBaby - thank you. Yes I have found references in the 1851 and I have seen where Eleanor is shown as marrying George Brown.

Mike thank you - yes I think that must be the record of her death.

Trailertrash - thank you. I have picked that info up.

Reggie - thank you. I am looking for information on Catherine Travers 1802c - 1838. Mike has given me info which looks promising but I then need to get info of her husband James Travers. At some stage the family is said to have come from Kinsale Ireland. I will try to get hold of the death certificate of Catherine Travers to see what other information is available from that.

Thank you all - Joyce
