Question Kilfenora ? Ennis ?

Post by mgallery » Thu Jul 08, 2021 2:39 pm

Hi I have John Lawrence Lingard aged 38 (I think he was a little older) applying to join the army reserves in 1917. He had already served in the Royal Artillery. He says he was born in Kilfenora, has lived out of his fathers house for three years and lives at 27 Whitechapel road. Where is Whitechapel rd ? Is this in Kilfenora or in Ennis or somewhere else ? I dont have him on Irish census but that is not surprising if he was a soldier.
He later died in abt Oct 1920 in Ennis Lunatic Asylum at 74. His death record says he was a bachelor soldier.
I think he was an out of wedlock child of one of the Cooga Lingards possibly a brother to Annie mentioned already on this forum

Hi Margaret,

I'm coming to this a bit late so you might have figured it out already.

I've been looking at the army records for John Lawrence Lingard - he enlisted in a place called St. Paul's Churchyard which is in London.

Whitechapel Road is around 1.5 miles east of here.
