murf wondered back on Christmas Eve whether there was a gender bias either in the numbers of children living with uncles, aunts or grandparents or in the usage of wrong English terminology to describe these relationships.

Another example: Given the age gap of 56 years between head of household Mary Ryan (60) and her "niece" Mary Walsh (4) at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Killard/Glascloon/1080111/ in 1901, I was immediately suspicious that the child was a granddaughter of Mary Ryan ...

Another example - a girl with the same name and same implied birth year and from the same townland as the previous example, although their relationship at best is distant: In Glascloon in 1901, Bridget Whelan (3) was a niece of James Foran, Sr. (65) and James Foran, Jr. (27) was also in the househol...

Another example: Michael Mulqueen appears to have been enumerated with his grandparents in both the 1901 and 1911 censuses, and enumerated twice in 1911, also appearing with his parents. He is not with his parents in 1901: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Kilrush_Urban/Henry_St...

Another example:
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/p ... r/1080852/

I have established that Anne Browne, described as a niece, was a grandchild of the head of family. This suggests that Catherine Keane and Denis Breene were probably also grandchildren.

Over four years after I started this thread, about a puzzle which had thwarted me for many years before that, I have finally found the clue which confirms that Fr. Laurence Browne's mother, Fr.
