'UNKNOWN' died. 'UNKNOWN' married Mary Catherine (Kate) GORDON.

Mary Catherine (Kate) GORDON [Parents] was born on 23 May 1893 in Clerragh, Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. She was christened on 23 May 1893 in Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. She died in 1958. Mary married 'UNKNOWN'.

A death notice in the Irish Independent archives tells us that a Mary Kate Twohey, née Gordon, died at her residence in Loughglynn on 25 March 1958. The date dies in with the year of death (1958) that I was given for our Kate by a family source, and Loughglynn is close to our Kate's home parish of Fairymount. I am therefore of the opinion that Mary Kate Twohey is our Kate above.

Martin O'CONNOR died.

It is believed Martin was related to Major General Sir Luke O'Connor who was awarded a Victoria Cross for bravery at the battle of the Alma during the Crimean War (1854). However, we are unsure as to the exact connection. If anyone has any further information about Martin and his family, or how he might be related to Sir Luke, I would be very grateful if you would get in touch by emailing Thank you.

He had the following children.

  F i Mary Josephine O'CONNOR was born in 1843. She died on 5 Sep 1906.

William HUSSEY was born in abt 1760s in possibly Castleisland area, Co. Kerry. He died in probably Castleisland area, Co. Kerry. William married Julia 'UNKNOWN'.


According to family sources, our Hussey family came from the Dingle area of Co. Kerry, but we have discovered that William's son, also named William, was born in Castleisland, Co. Kerry. I am therefore assuming that our Husseys came from Castleisland rather than Dingle. Griffith's Valuation (1847-1864) data was checked for Husseys in Castleisland and eight parcels of land were occupied by Husseys at the time: three in the townland of Caheragh, two in Crag, and one each in Dromultan, Kilbannivane and Moanmore. It is possible that our Husseys hailed from one of these townlands.

Note: The Hussey surname is common throughout Ireland, especially in counties Kerry and Galway. There were originally two groups of Husseys in the country, the 'Ó h-Eodhasa' family of Co. Fermananagh and the Norman 'de Hosey' family who settled in counties Meath and Kerry.

Julia 'UNKNOWN' was born in abt 1770s in possibly Castleisland area, Co. Kerry. She died in probably Castleisland area, Co. Kerry. Julia married William HUSSEY.

They had the following children.

  M i William HUSSEY was born on 1 May 1797. He died on 27 Nov 1870.

John BUCKLEY [Parents] was born about 1800 in Ireland. He died in probably before 1850. John married Catherine Faith (Faith) NOBLE on 28 Jul 1822 in St. Mary's Church, Paddington, London.

On his marriage certificate (1822) John is described as an engineer; in the 1841 census his occupation was "market man"; according to the marriage certificate (1848) of his son, also named John, John (the father) worked as a labourer.

The 1841 census tells us that John, Faith and their family were living at 2 Falconbey Court in Soho, London.

Catherine Faith (Faith) NOBLE [Parents] was born about 1797 in Ireland. She died in 1851. She was buried in St Giles in the Fields, London. Catherine married John BUCKLEY on 28 Jul 1822 in St. Mary's Church, Paddington, London.

The 1851 census tells us that Faith worked as a "monthly nurse".

They had the following children.

  M i John William BUCKLEY was born about 1823. He died in after 24 Oct 1864 and probably before Apr 1873.

George Charles BUCKLEY [Parents] was born on 4 Jul 1861 in 17 Brydges St., Covent Garden, London. He was christened on 21 Jul 1861 in St. Patrick's Church, Soho Square, Westminster, London. He died on 17 Aug 1932 in Woodend Hospital, Aberdeen. He was buried on 19 Aug 1932 in Huntly Cemetery. George married Mary INGRAM on 29 Jan 1898 in St. Margaret's Catholic Church, Huntly, Aberdeenshire.

Other marriages:
BROWN, Isabella

George's baptismal sponsors were Charles Hobbs and Mary Ann Butler.

George was adopted by Charlotte Annie Brett (1829-1882) of Huntly in Aberdeenshire in Scotland. Charlotte was the widow of Major Reginald Brett who had died in 1859 on board ship (the Eastern Monarch) on his way from India to England. She was a member of the Drummond family of Megginch Castle in Perthshire; her parents were Adam Augustus Drummond and Sandelia Symon, and her grandparents were Admiral Sir Adam Drummond and Lady Charlotte Murray. Charlotte and Reginald had had a child, Reginald Charles Augustus Brett, who was born 3 September 1846 and died in infancy.

The circumstances of George's adoption are not known, and I have no proof that he was in fact adopted by Charlotte. However, it is not surprising he was adopted because his mother died when he was just two years of age and some of his older siblings appear to have been raised by relatives subsquently. It seems George's father had died before he had reached the age of 13, by which time he was living in Huntly. The 1871 census of Scotland lists nine-year-old George in Charlotte's household at Lonach Lodge in Strathdon, Aberdeenshire. I can find no trace of George in the 1881 census. Charlotte died aged 52 in 1882 when Charles was about 19 years old. The 1891 census places George in Chapel St. in Huntly, his occupation being a painter's apprentice. At the time of his marriage in 1898 he was living at 5 Bogie St. in Huntly and was a journeyman house painter; and at the time of the 1901 census, he and his family were at 15 Littlejohn St., also in Huntly.

George's residence at the time of his death in 1932 was Nazareth House, Claremont St., Aberdeen. His occupation on his death certificate was "House Painter (Journeyman)" and cause of death was "Chronic Myocarditis and Pulmonary Oedema". He and his wife, Mary, are both buried in Huntly Cemetery, next to Charlotte.

Note: Major Brett mentioned above died either from consumption on board the Eastern Monarch in February 1859 or in a fire aboard the same vessel in June 1859.

Mary INGRAM [Parents] was born about 1864 in Huntly, Aberdeenshire. She died on 16 Nov 1917 in 22 Deveron St., Huntly. She was buried in Huntly Cemetery. Mary married George Charles BUCKLEY on 29 Jan 1898 in St. Margaret's Catholic Church, Huntly, Aberdeenshire.

Mary's occupation at the time of her marriage in 1898 was "stocking weaver", and her address was Back St., Huntly.

Mary died of bowel cancer at the age of 53.
