Grateful for info. William may be a son of Thomas (died Thomas St 1845) as William listed as a bootmaker of 92 Thomas St. per Slater 1846. William also listed in 1851 Dublin census at 11 John St. West - daughter Eliza died in this street 1850. Would they have lived and conducted business at the same address at that time ? Plus Joseph witness at the marriage. Bill.

it would be more than likely the bootmaker "shop" was run from the home...The owner of the shop according to the Voters Reg.was Thomas Madden.
John St West is only about a five minute walk from Thomas St. as the crow flies.

You can seeall the Lanigan/Lanagan' living Dublin on this site....note Patrick at no 86.
