Hi T

Trying to find the father and mother of a William Eady born in Holborn, London 1847. I think William married Esther Haines around 1865/1866 but am having trouble finding his parents. Any info would be appreciated on either William or Esther.

Many thanks.

Sorry Frances for the delay..

Do you still want me to look for them?



Eames Report 15 Oct 2009 16:05

Hi Lisa,

1981/1982 is late for Ancestry to have records for those kind of years. Sorry


Eames Report 15 Oct 2009 16:22


Just sent you the PM incase you've missed it if I replied to this thread.

Hope that helps,

Thats them, thank, but it looks like there are no children.


Niall Report 15 Oct 2009 17:23

Could someone please lookup the following:

One of my ancestor's, Timothy Marrinan, went over to the USA some time between 1901 and 1911. He was born 1889 in County Clare, Ireland. He is in the 1901 Irish Census, and someone in my family told me that he died in 1911 in the USA - apparantely he was shot.

I would imagine he left from Queenstown (now Cobh), in County Cork.

On Ancestry, there are two Timothy Marrinan's with a good rating, one "Timothy Marrinan" and the other "Timothy Joseph Marrinan". I don't know if if my ancestor is one of them - could someone who has access to these give me the information (and possibly email me the original images - if there are any - I can give you my email address in a PM on GR).

Thanks in advance,

Hi T I think you have helped me before. Thanks for your time and trouble doing lookups.
I am looking for the father of Sarah Kippins (Kippens) and thought perhaps her marriage on the London Marriages and Banns would help. Could you look this up for me please, she married William Harris in Essex but I don't know when.
Or perhaps on the Births and Baptisms, she was born in Kingston on Thames around 1820. Many thanks. Brit

This is one closest to his birth years..

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957

Name: Timothy Joseph Marrinan
Arrival Date: 15 Apr 1910
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1887
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Queenstown, Ireland
/Nationality: Irish
Ship Name: Lusitania
Search Ship Database: View the Lusitania in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Line: 14
Microfilm Serial: T715
Microfilm Roll: T715_1454
Birth Location: Ireland
Birth Location Other: lahmick
Page Number: 166

Says he's a Grocer's assistant. The name and address where he came from was Brother, James Marrinan in Curraghhodes?? Lahinch? going to Brooklyn NY

Would that tally with Irish census having a brother called James?


Niall Report 15 Oct 2009 17:47

Hi T,

That's brilliant I think that is correct, he did indeed have a brother James and was from Curragh O'Dea in County Clare, Ireland. Lehinch is also a few miles up the road.

If I am correct, I think the RMS Lusitania was a famous ship that sank a few years later, killing about 1200 people on board!

If I send you my email address, can you email me the original passenger list image? That would be greatly appreciated.



Eames Report 15 Oct 2009 17:53

Hi Brit..

So far I cannot spot the marriage yet.. Kingston would be under Surrey and Marriage & Banns covers most of Surrey but I dont think it covers Kingston in order to find her baptisms or she wasnt baptised.

As for the marriage, it's the same for Essex, it covers a small part of Essex - where about in Essex do you know? Any more info on either these gouple or a census info that you do know?


Eames Report 15 Oct 2009 17:54


Sure, go ahead and I'll go and save the image for you :o)


Brit Report 15 Oct 2009 18:45

HI T, Thanks for looking. I have her as born 1820 but that is not certified. She had a daughter Emily who died in 1839 so presumably the marriage was before that. Her husband William Harris died in Romford in 1845. She went on to marry a Joseph Colledge at Romford in 1847, under the name Sarah Harris. taking with her two daughters Anne and Henrietta Harris. Does that help at all? Rgds Brit


Marian Report 15 Oct 2009 18:58

Hi T
I was wondering if you could look up the following please.
JAMES BROWN married SOPHIA KNIGHT 1857 and Im trying to find the baptisms of their children please. As far as I know they were all born around Holborn area.
James' occupation was tin foil worker/roller/plater, if thats any help
Im also looking for his father George Brown who was a Poulterer,
any help of anything above would be great thanks ever so much


Brit Report 15 Oct 2009 19:04

Oh a bit more: I just found the info on the 1881 Sarah was 66, so that would have made her born in 1815. I know she was older than Joseph by several years and he was born in 1820. Brit


Eames Report 15 Oct 2009 19:48


It did a bit but havent found the marriage or anything, I have found her in 1851 and she had 2 daughters with her Ann E b 1837 and Henrietta b 1845. So the marriage will be before the 1837 registration starts unfortunately.

So she either married in Essex or in her home town, Kingston Surrey and sadly not in London marriages on Ancestry..Oh hang fire.. I just remembered having few credits left on FindMyPast site that I hardly used.. And ta-dah..

Day: 3
Month: Mar
Year: 1835
Groom Forenames: William
Groom Surname: HARRIS
Bride Forenames: Sarah
Bride Surname: KIPPIN
Place: Littleton
County: Middlesex
Country: England

Littleton was south of Middlesex, near Shepperton and west of Kingston Upon Thames.

Pity it doesnt give me her father's name!!


Brit Report 15 Oct 2009 19:50

T you are a gem! That's brilliant. I do appreciate your using your precious findmypast credits!!! Thanks so much. Even without her father's name I do have confirmation I have the right Sarah anyway. Best regards Brit.
