red mail Great Great Grandparents - Hood/Cuddy
My great Grandfather Alfred Albert HOOD arrived in NZ in the late 1800's and on his death certificate was his fathers name William HOOD and his occupation was Coast guardsman - there was no name under mother. I have done a big of digging and found that a William H HOOD was married to a Margaret CUDDY - does anyone know if it is the same family that lived house 2 in Magheramore, Mannorcunningham according to the 1901 Census their children where Sara, Mary, Margt and Samuel- at this stage Margaret was a widow -if it is the family it would mean that my GGfather would have been the eldest as he appears on a 1881 census taken aboard the Royal navy Boat 'Garnet' showing his age as 17 thoug with his death certificate age he would more likely to be 15 Thanks Denise
red mail Orr, Belleeghan, Manorcunningham
My grandfather Robert Orr was born in 1904 in Letterkenny. In the 1911 census he lived at 18 Belleeghan Manorcunningham. His fathers name was James and mothers name Catherine. He had older brothers James and John, he also had a younger brother Phil, who, last heard of lived in the midlands in England. He also had two sisters Maggie and Martha J, who I think was known as my Auntie Jeanie. It's possible they had another sister Mary who died somewhere between 1901 and 1911 at a very young age. Robert came over to Scotland and married Elizabeth Watson not sure if they married in Scotland or Ireland. Robert had four Children, John(my father), Maisie, Catherine and Elizabeth. If any of this information sounds familiar to anyone I would appreciate you making contact, would like to hear from any of the Orr family. Thanks. Bob.
