'unknown' EGAN was born in Ireland. He died.

The Egan surname is common throughout Ireland. Its original form was MacAodhagáin (MacEgan) but the Mac has now been largely dropped. Keegan is a variant. The name originated in the Roscommon/Galway area where the MacAodhagáins acted as 'brehons' or lawyers and judges to the ruling families. Over the centuries, however, they were dispersed southwards, settling mainly in north Munster and east Leinster, in what are now counties Tipperary, Offaly and Kilkenny. The Egans are now most numerous in Connaught and Leinster.

John was a tailor. He died of bronchitis (duration four weeks) and congestion of the lungs.

Edmund Francis EGAN was born on 23 Mar 1844 in 21 Chenies St., St. Giles, London. He died on 28 Mar 1926 in Chiswick, London. He was buried on 31 Mar 1926 in St. Mary's Cemetery, Kensal Green, London.

Edmund was educated at Gravelines in northern France and at St. Edmund's College in Hertfordshire. He was ordained a priest at St. Thomas's Seminary in Hammersmith, London in December 1870. Apart from a brief period ministering in Essex after his ordination Edmund spent his entire religious life working in London. In 1871 he went to the Church of the Assumption, Warwick St. where he remained for 24 years. He then served for 12 years in the parish of St. Charles, Ogle St. before being appointed in 1906 as missionary rector at Our Lady of Grace and St. Edward in Chiswick where he served for the rest of his life.

Frances (Fanny) Julia EGAN was born on 17 Jan 1849 in St. Giles, London. She was christened on 22 Mar 1849 in St. Patrick's Church, Soho Square, Westminster, London. She died on 17 Feb 1937 in probably Richmond, Surrey.

Fanny's baptismal sponsors were [name illegible] and Anna Mary Smith.

Fanny is listed in the 1871 census as a member of the household of her sister and brother-in-law Mary and Archibald Dunn in Hampstead, London. Also listed are her other sisters, Alice and Beatrice. All three unmarried sisters appear again with Mary and Archibald in the 1881 census, along with their brother Alfred, at 6 Westgate Terrace, Kensington, London. Fanny and Beatrice were single and still with Mary and Archibald 10 years later, this time in Fulham, London.

At the time of her death, in 1937, Fanny was living at 14 Old Deer Park Gardens, Richmond, Surrey.
  F vii
Alice EGAN was born on 28 Jan 1851 in 14 North Crescent, St. Giles, London. She was christened on 14 Feb 1851 in St. Patrick's Church, Soho Square, Westminster, London.

Alice's baptismal sponsors were Michael Reilly and Anna Jones.

Alice is listed in the 1871 census as a member of the household of her sister and brother-in-law Mary and Archibald Dunn in Hampstead, London. Included with Alice are her other sisters, Fanny and Beatrice. All three unmarried sisters are listed again with Mary and Archibald in the 1881 census, along with their brother Alfred, at 6 Westgate Terrace, Kensington, London.

The will of Alice's brother Edmund, written on 16 March 1926 (12 days before his death), tells us that Alice was living in Belgium at the time (she would have been 70 years of age): "I direct that if my said sister Alice Egan shall die in Belgium, the expense of her funeral shall be paid by my trustees out of the capital of my residual estate". We do not know what brought Alice to Belgium, nor do we have any information on where and when she died. It could be that she was in a convent there as it was not uncommon for English nuns to serve in Belgium, particularly in a teaching capacity. For whatever reason she was in Belgium we can safely say she was unmarried as Edmund's will refers to her as Alice Egan.
  M viii Alfred Joseph EGAN was born on 24 Dec 1852. He died on 4 Jun 1908.
  F ix
Eliza Beatrice Rose (Beatrice) EGAN was born on 18 Jun 1855 in 14 North Crescent, St. Giles, London. She was christened on 18 Jul 1855 in St. Patrick's Church, Soho Square, Westminster, London. She died after Apr 1926.

Eliza's baptismal sponsors were [what looks like] Francis Gleeson and Eliza [surname illegible].

Beatrice is listed in the 1871 census as a member of the household of her sister and brother-in-law Mary and Archibald Dunn in Hampstead, London. Included with Beatrice are her other sisters, Fanny and Alice. All three unmarried sisters are listed again with Mary and Archibald in the 1881 census, along with their brother Alfred, at 6 Westgate Terrace, Kensington, London. Beatrice and Fanny were single and still with Mary and Archibald - in Fulham, London - 10 years later. And we know from the 1926 obituary of her brother Edward that Beatrice, who would have been about 70 years of age at the time, had not married.

A death record has been located on the FreeBMD website for a Beatrice R. Egan who died in Surrey North East in 1934 aged 78. I think it likely that this is our Beatrice.

Archibald Joseph DUNN [Parents] was born in May 1836 in Dublin. He was christened on 1 Jun 1836 in St. Mary's Pro Cathedral, Dublin. He died in probably 1917 in probably Kensington, London. Archibald married Mary L. EGAN in 1865 in Marylebone, London.

Archibald was a bank clerk according to the 1871 census. By the time of the 1901 census he was a journalist and author. It is likely that Archibald was the same Archibald Joseph Dunn (1836-1917) who wrote 'The Bankers' Clearing House: Some Suggestions as to its Extension and Further Development'(published 1874), 'Frederic Ozanam and the Establishment of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul' (1877), 'The Rise and Decay of the Rule of Islam' (1877), 'St. Louis du Rhone, the New French Port in the Mediterranean' (1880), 'Mexico and her Resources' (1890), 'The Tehuantepec Railway, A New Through Route to the East (1896), 'Turkey and its Future' (1905), 'British Interests in the Persian Gulf' (1907) and 'Santo Dominingo: its Resources and its Future' (1911).

In The Edinburgh Gazette of 28 July 1893 is a list of 'Bankrupts' from the London Gazette which includes Archibald. At this time he was a journalist, living at 36 Avonmore Road, West Kensington, London.

Mary L. EGAN [Parents] was born on 25 Oct 1835 in St. Giles, London. She was christened on 8 Nov 1835 in St. Patrick's Church, Soho Square, Westminster, London. She died in bet 1901 and 1911 in probably London. Mary married Archibald Joseph DUNN in 1865 in Marylebone, London.

Mary's baptismal sponsors were Edward [what looks like] Semon and Elizabeth Kearney.

At the time of the 1871 census Mary and her husband, Archibald, were living at 158 Belsize Road, Hampstead, London. It appears Mary's mother and three younger sisters moved in with them after her marriage as they are listed with Mary and Archibald in both the 1871 and 1881 censuses. At the time of the 1881 census all five were living at 6 Westgate Terrace, Kensington, London, along with Mary's brother Alfred.

The 1901 census tells us that Mary and Archibold were living at the time in Fulham, London with Mary's sisters Fanny and Beatrice.

It appears Mary and Archibold had no children.


Archibald DUNN died. Archibald married Margaret 'UNKNOWN'.

Margaret 'UNKNOWN' died. Margaret married Archibald DUNN.

They had the following children.

  M i Archibald Joseph DUNN was born in May 1836. He died in probably 1917.
