A recent query prompted me to return to this thread. The surname Mannix did not occur in Clare in the Tithe Applotment Books, but there were seven households in Griffith's Valuation, and then just one in 1901 and 1911, in the townland of Drummin: http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/genealogy/su...

Thanks for that Bob. I have now realised that the use of niece or nephew to describe a grandchild in 1901 and 1911 was so widespread that it is not worth trying to document every occurence on this thread. However, I have just come across a literal translation of sean-athair and sean-mháthair that is...

I have been researching a Malone family whose address is given on birth and marriage records as Millpark up to 1895 and I have found them in Kilkerin townland in the censuses of 1901 and 1911. While they could have moved between 1895 and 1901, I think it is more likely that Millpark is a local name ...

Maggie Jane Lynch was double counted in 1911, with her parents in Moveen West and as a "niece" with her maternal grandmother in Furroor Upper. See http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Moveen/Moveen_West/362983/ and http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Mo...

Sorry, Bob, I should have avoided the terms "senior" and "junior" when referring to a sequence of more than two generations with the same name. Let's try numbering the generations I, II and III. Edward Bennett I married Margaret McNamara. I do not know either his father's name or...

Here's an unusual mixture from Kerry: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Kerry/Banna/Carrahane__Upper/277401/ The household of Timothy and Deborah Griffin includes their "Grand Daughter" Mary Egan (whose parents are in the household) and their two "Nieces" (also gra...

Have you looked for this family in Twigge's book on the MacNamara family? http://oac.ie/site/content/pedigrees-macnamara-family My understanding is that Edward Bennett senior married Margaret McNamara and they had a son Edward Bennett junior who married Catherine McMahon. Margaret McNamara had siste...

Another Sligo/Mayo example ... Bridget Kelleher was baptised in KILSHALVEY KILTURRA (Bunninadden) parish in County Sligo. In 1901, she was a Sligo-born niece of Luke and Mary Walsh: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Sligo/Achonty_East/Cashel_South/1685990/ In 1911, she was a Mayo-born...

The Gallipoli campaign had a devastating effect on one Kilrush family in August 1915. Thomas Deenihan died there on 11 Aug 1915 aged 28, leaving a widow and three children under five and a number of siblings, including Catherine, married to Martin McGrath, also away at war at the time, with three ch...

A Sligo/Mayo example: Mary Ellen O'Donnell was born on the Mayo side of the county boundary on 8 May 1898. Her mother died and her father remarried on 9 Feb 1900. Mary Ellen went to live with her maternal grandparents on the Sligo side of the county boundary after her mother's death, while her broth...
