Fifth Generation


33. Edward HUDSON (Robert , Edward , Edward , William ) was born on 3 Nov 1885 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 12 Feb 1886 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He died on 1 Apr 1967 in Glenageary, Co. Dublin.

Edward was educated at Portora School in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh. Several years before his marriage to Benedicta, Edward was engaged to be married to Constance Muriel Mill, daughter of George Symers Mill, a doctor, of Ossett, Yorkshire, but it appears the marriage never took place.

Edward, having qualified as an accountant, joined the Munster and Leinster Bank and worked at its O'Connell St. branch in Dublin for a number of years (he was living in a boarding house in Harrington St., Dublin at the time of the 1911 census). He was later appointed manager of the bank's branches in Ennistymon, Co. Clare and Lismore, Co. Waterford.

Edward married Benedicta (Barry) M. COOKE, daughter of Edward COOKE and Maria MAHER, on 16 Sep 1931 in Church of the Sacred Heart, Edge Hill, Wimbledon, London. Benedicta was born in 1894 in Limerick city. She died on 15 Aug 1977 in Orpington, Kent. She was buried in All Saints Cemetery, Orpington, Kent.

Barry grew up in Limerick city. She and her husband, Edward, lived at 'Ventry', 125 Silchester Park, Glenageary, Co. Dublin.

They had the following children.

Edwina HUDSON was born on 3 Dec 1934 in Hatch St., Dublin. She died on 25 Feb 1935 in Dublin.

Edwina was Gloria's twin. She died as an infant.

34. Richard Francis Huggard HUDSON (Robert , Edward , Edward , William ) was born on 23 Nov 1886 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 21 Mar 1887 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He died on 20 Feb 1954 in Leebrook, Tralee, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Ballyseedy Churchyard, Tralee, Co. Kerry.

Richard was solicitor to Tralee Urban Council for nearly 30 years and a partner in the practice of Hudson & Brown in Tralee. For many years the practice operated in Denny St., Tralee. The firm is still in existence (as of 2014), with an office in Princes St. but there are no longer any members of the Hudson family involved.

According to a family source Richard had a "sandy complexion" and, as a result of an accident, walked with a limp.

Richard married Helen Margaret Noel (Margaret) DAWSON, daughter of Albert DAWSON and Helen 'UNKNOWN', on 27 Mar 1926 in Holy Trinity Church, Brompton, London. Helen was born in Feb 1905 in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire. She was christened on 11 Feb 1905 in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire. She died on 16 Oct 1951 in Castlegregory, Co. Kerry.

Helen, who was known as Margaret, was the only child of Albert and Helen Dawson who, at the time of their daughter's engagement in 1925, were living at 20 Montpelier, Hyde Park, Leeds.

After they married, Margaret and Richard lived at Barrow House, Ardfert, Co. Kerry, which Richard had purchased the year before their marriage. In the 1940s they moved to Leebrook, a nine-acre property outside Tralee.

They had the following children.

+ 84 F i Elizabeth (Liza) Noel HUDSON was born on 1 Mar 1931. She died in Oct 1994.

38. John Victor Alexander HUDSON (Robert , Edward , Edward , William ) was born on 27 Jan 1897 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 3 Mar 1897 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He died on 6 Jan 1941 in Monkstown, Co. Dublin. He was buried in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin.

John served in France in World War I and was badly wounded.

John married Alphra Gwendoline COURTNEY, daughter of Charles Marshall COURTNEY and Gwendoline MAUNSELL, on 9 Sep 1929 in St. Mary's Parish Church, Donnybrook, Dublin. Alphra was born about 1894 in Mount Minnett, Kilmurry, Co. Limerick. She died on 6 Sep 1964 in Rathmines, Dublin. She was buried in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin.

Alphra and her family seem to have used both Courtney and Courtney-Gabbett as surnames. After their marriage, Alphra and her husband, John, lived at 'Glengariff', Alma Road, Monkstown, Co. Dublin. At the time of the marriage of her son Ian in 1961, the widowed Alphra was living at 19 Garview Terrace, off Ailesbury Road, in Dublin; and at the time of her death three years later, she was residing at 19 Garville Road, Rathgar, Co. Dublin.

They had the following children.

39. William Oliver HUDSON (Robert , Edward , Edward , William ) was born on 16 Sep 1901 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 3 Nov 1901 in Dingle, Co. Kerry. He died on 6 Apr 1977 in possibly Killaloe, Co. Clare. He was buried in Oakview Cemetery, Tralee, Co. Kerry.

William worked for the Munster and Leinster Bank and was manager of the bank's branches in a number of towns, including Dunlavin, Co. Wicklow; Nenagh, Co. Tipperary; and Lismore, Co. Waterford (interestingly, at another time William's brother Edward was also manager of the Lismore branch). In the 1960s William and his wife, Nina, were living at Baymount in The Spa, Tralee, Co. Kerry. They also lived in Limerick and in Quilty, Co. Clare, and by the mid-1970s they had moved to Finnlough, Ballyvalley, Killaloe, Co. Clare.

William married Antonina (Nina) MATCHETTE, daughter of William Thomas MATCHETTE and Gertrude Evelyn ALLEN, on 5 Mar 1935 in St. Mary's Parish Church, Donnybrook, Dublin. Antonina was born in 1903 in Omagh, Co. Tyrone. She died on 30 Mar 1982 in Killiney, Co. Dublin.

Nina was the eldest daughter of the Rev. William Matchette, who at the time of Nina's marriage was serving the parish of Rathvilly, Co. Carlow. Nina had a sister named Vanda who was married to Canon George Bodle and lived in Rathdowney, Co. Laois.

41. Richard HUDSON (Edward (Edmond) , Richard , William? , William ) was born about 3 Feb 1843 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 3 Feb 1843 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 26 Nov 1915 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was buried in probably Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Richard married Margaret THORNTON, daughter of James (Jim) THORNTON and Hanora (Norrie) CUNNINGHAM, on 14 Feb 1874 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. Margaret was born in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died before 26 Nov 1915 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was buried in probably Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

According to the 1911 census, Richard and Margaret had been married for 36 years and had 17 children born alive, only six of whom were alive in 1911.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were McQuin [first name not recorded] and James Harrington.

Richard and Margaret had the following children.

Richard HUDSON was born on 13 Feb 1880 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in 1908 in England.

Sponsors at Richard's baptism were Thomas Riordan and Honora Thornton.

Richard was a policeman in England and died of pneumonia aged about 27. He was unmarried.
+ 95 M vi James (Jim) HUDSON was born on 29 May 1883. He died on 18 Jun 1947.

+ 97 F viii Johanna (Hannie) HUDSON was born on 31 Dec 1888. She died on 7 Jul 1961.

42. William HUDSON (Edward (Edmond) , Richard , William? , William ) was born about 23 May 1844 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened on 24 May 1844. He died on 2 May 1928 in Lacca East, Kilmorna, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

I am very grateful to Tom Moloney of Islandanny, Duagh, Co. Kerry for much of the information you see below on the family of William and his wife, Johanna.

Sponsors at William's baptism were William Connor and John Connnor.

William and Johanna remained on the Hudson family farm in Kilbaha until 1920 when William purchased a 65-acre farm in Lacca East, Kilmorna, Co. Kerry from a family by the name of Walsh.

Apparently William was a striking-looking man with a long white beard.

William married Johanna HAYES, daughter of John HAYES and Brigid CUNNINGHAM, on 7 Jul 1878 in St. Bartholomew's Church, Athea, Co. Limerick. Johanna was born about 28 Apr 1857 in Dirreen, Athea, Co. Limerick. She was christened on 1 May 1857 in St. Bartholomew's Church, Athea, Co. Limerick. She died on 13 Aug 1933 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was buried in probably Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Johanna's baptismal sponsors were John Connor and Catherine Cunningham.

It is not surprising that Johanna married William as they were near neighbours. Dirreen, although in a different county, is right next to William's home townland of Kilbaha; in fact the Hudson farm shared a boundary with part of the Hayes farm in Dirreen.

As Johanna died in Kilbaha it would appear she returned to lived there after William's death in 1928 (they had farmed in Kibaha for many years before moving to Lacca East in Kilmorna). Johanna's death record tells us she died of "probably heart failure following influenza".

Note from Helen: I am wondering if Johanna was related to the Hayes family of Templeathea (also in Athea, the parish in which Johanna's home townland of Dirreen is located) because at least two members of the Templeathea Hayes family married members of the family of Johanna's husband, William Hudson: Tom Hayes married William's sister Johanna Hudson in 1881, and about 1903 Tom's second cousin James Hayes married Bridget Hudson, daughter of  William Hudson and Johanna Hayes (and niece of Johanna Hudson). My hunch is that the two Hayes families were indeed related but I have no proof. If anyone has any further information on the family of Johanna Hayes above, I would be very grateful if you would email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were John Shanahan and Kate Ahern.

William and Johanna had the following children.

Mary Ann HUDSON was born about 10 Sep 1878 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 12 Sep 1878 in Athea, Co. Limerick. She died on 27 Mar 1959 in Coilagurteen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Mary Ann's baptism were James Cunningham and Mary Cunningham. Although Mary Ann was born in Kilbaha she was baptised in Athea, Co. Limerick, following the tradition at the time of baptising the first-born child in the mother's home parish.

Mary Ann and her husband, John, lived in Coilagurteen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Note that Coilagurteen is not an actual townland but comprises part of the townland of Carhooearagh (also spelled Carrueragh) and perhaps part of the townland of Kylebwee (also spelled Coilbee). The Doody farm was situated in the Carhooeragh area of Coilagurteen.   

It appears that Mary Ann and her husband, John, did not have any children because, in the early 1920s, they gave over their farm to Mary Ann's youngest sister Ellen Broderick (20 years Mary Ann's junior) and Ellen's husband, Paddy, apparently in return for being looked after for the remainder of their lives. The owner's name was not changed by the Valuation Office from John Doody to Patrick Broderick until 1927 but it is possible the actual transfer of ownership had occurred some years earlier.

       
Mary married John DOODY, son of Jeremiah DOODY and Bridget SCANLON, on 12 Feb 1903 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. John was born about 4 Jun 1871 in Coilagurteen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 6 Jun 1871 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 27 Jan 1945 in Listowel, Co. Kerry.

John and Mary farmed in Coilagurteen, Moyvane.

John died in the District Hospital in Listowel of acute cardiac failure.

John HUDSON was born on 26 Oct 1882 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened about 28 Oct 1882 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 19 Mar 1883 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was buried in probably Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

John's baptismal sponsors were James Cunningham and Mary Cunningham.

  104 M vii
William HUDSON was born on 19 Apr 1887 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 31 Mar 1916 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

According to his death certificate William died of "probably tuberculosis of the lung" from which he had been suffering for about 18 months. The certificate also tells us that William was an "ex-policeman". He was only 28 years old when he died.

Based on the above information Royal Irish Constabulary records were checked and it appears that William joined the force in 1906 (aged about 20).
  105 M viii
Thomas HUDSON was born on 6 Sep 1888 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 10 Mar 1913 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

According to his death certificate Thomas died of "probably tuberculosis of the lung". He was only 24 years of age.
+ 106 M ix Richard (Dick) HUDSON was born on 8 Apr 1891. He died on 7 Jan 1980.
+ 107 F x Johanna (Hannie) HUDSON was born on 11 Jan 1895. She died on 7 Nov 1962.
+ 108 F xi Ellen "Nell Broder" HUDSON was born on 29 May 1898. She died on 15 Aug 1976.

43. Mary HUDSON (Edward (Edmond) , Richard , William? , William ) was born about 1846 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She died in possibly 7 Mar 1916 in Tubberturreen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

We are basing Mary's approximate year of birth on excerpts from the 1851 census of Ireland which were used in determining eligibility for the old age pension,which was introduced in Ireland in 1908. From this data it appears that Mary was born about 1846.

According to the 1911 census, Mary had 11 children born alive, seven of whom were alive at the time of the census.

A Mary McEnery, a widow, died in Tubbertureen on 7 March 1916 of gastritis aged 75. The informant was her son Denis of Tubbertureen. It is likely that this Mary McEnery was our Mary above.

Mary married Michael MCENERY, son of Thomas MCENERY and Johanna GALVIN, on 25 Feb 1868 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. Michael was born in probably Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in probably between 1886 and 1888 in probably Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

According to Griffiths Valuation records, Michael's wife, Mary, became the lessee in 1888, which probably means that Michael had died before then. As Michael's youngest child was born in January 1887 we are assuming that Michael died between 1886 and 1888.

Around 1909 the farm had been purchased by the family and was held in the names of Michael and Mary's sons, Edmund (76 acres) and Jeremiah (64 acres). It is perhaps surprising that Michael and Mary's only other surviving son to remain in Ireland does not appear to have been given a portion of the land, especially as he was older than Jeremiah. However, around 1910, Edmund gave or sold his farm to a Denis McEnery, who we are assuming to be Edmund's brother Denis.  

Note that McEnery is sometimes spelled McEniry.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were Edmund Hudson and John Stack.

Mary and Michael had the following children.

  109 M i
Thomas MCENERY was born about 18 Dec 1868 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 20 Dec 1868 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly before 2 Apr 1911 in probably Australia.

Sponsors at Thomas's baptism were William Hudson and Bridget Connor.

We are told that Thomas emigrated to Australia. It is believed that he died before April 1911 as the Irish census of that year tells us that Thomas's parents had 11 children born alive, seven of whom were still alive at the time of the census but we believe that these did not include Thomas. Whereas we have evidence of seven being alive after the 1911 census (Mary Ann, John, Edmund, Johanna, Bridget, Denis and Jeremiah), we have not come across any proof that Thomas was still alive after this time.
+ 110 F ii Mary Ann MCENERY was born on 28 Feb 1871. She died in 1961.

Michael MCENERY was born on 24 Apr 1874 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 28 Apr 1874 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly before 2 Apr 1911.

Sponsors at Michael's baptism were Martin Hudson and Margaret Hudson.

It is believed that Michael died young.

Hanora MCENERY was born on 20 Jan 1879 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 23 Jan 1879 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 3 Feb 1890 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Hanora's baptism were Jeremiah Hudson and Johanna Hayes.

Hanora died at the age of 11 of "delicate health", the duration of which was "about 3 months".
+ 116 F viii Bridget MCENERY was born on 25 Feb 1881.
+ 117 M ix Denis MCENERY was born about 21 Sep 1882. He died on 19 Jun 1938.

  119 M xi
William MCENERY was born on 6 Jan 1887 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 8 Jan 1887 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 8 Jun 1887 in Tubbertureen, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

William's baptismal sponsors were Denis McEnery and Johanna Hudson.

William died at the age of five months of "dentition [teething infection] (1 month) and cerebral disease (about 14 days)".

44. Edmond HUDSON (Edward (Edmond) , Richard , William? , William ) was born about 1850 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He died on 11 Jan 1878 in Palmerston St., Melbourne.

Edmond emigrated to Australia around 1870 and settled in the Melbourne area. His occupation on his marriage certificate and that of his son James (although Edmond had died long before James's marriage) is given as "cab proprietor". Edmond's name on James's marriage certificate is Edward and that is the name he appears to have gone by after his marriage.

Edmond was only about 28 years of age when he died. His death certificate tells us that he died of "phthisis pulmonalis" (tuberculosis) from which he had been suffering for nine months. We are also told that he worked as a labourer and that he died at Palmerston St. (no house number provided), Victoria Ward, Melbourne. According to the notes of Hudson researcher Bill Hudson, Edmond may have been murdered but this is clearly not the case.

Edmond married Ann (Annie) O'CONNOR, daughter of James O'CONNOR and Catherine (Katie) LARKIN, on 12 Jun 1875 in St. Ignatius' Church, Richmond, Victoria. Ann was born about 1849 in Knockbrane, Lixnaw, Co. Kerry. She died on 4 Jul 1878 in probably Melbourne area. She was buried in Melbourne General Cemetery.

Hudson researcher Bill Hudson was told that Annie was from Islandanny, Duagh and that her parents were James O'Connor and Ann Larkin. However, it appears that Annie's parents names were actually James O'Connor and Katie (not Ann) Larkin (as per Annie's marriage certificate). Based on this information the Irish Genealogy website, www.irishgenealogy.ie, was searched and a baptismal record was located for an Ann O'Connor of Knockbrane (also spelled Knockbrean), Lixnaw, Co. Kerry, daughter of James O'Connor and Katie Larkin, who was baptised in Lixnaw on 13 October 1849. This date ties in with Annie's age at marriage (25) as given on her marriage certificate (dated 12 June 1875), so it appears that Annie was in fact from Knockbrane.

The marriage certificate also tells us that Annie worked as a servant and that her "usual" address was Melbourne, while the usual address of her husband, Edmond (also known as Edward), was Carlton. Witnesses to the marriage were James Lane and Ellen [very difficult to decipher but could be] Mahoney. Could James Lane have been a relative of Maurice Lane, whose daughter Nora would, many years later, marry Annie and Edmond's son James?

Annie died aged only 29, just six months after the death of Edmond. As Edmond had died of tuberculosis, which is contagious, it is possible that Annie also succumbed to the disease, and perhaps her infant son, Edward, as well, as he died seven months after Annie at the age of just 12 months.

A newspaper notice following Annie's death read "The Friends of the late Mrs. ANN HUDSON (widow of the late Mr. Edward Hudson) are respectfully invited to follow her remains to the place of Interment, Melbourne General Cemetery. The funeral will move from the residence of Mr. Lane, 10 Lynch-street, Carlton, THIS DAY, 4th inst., at one o'clock." It is probable that Mr. Lane was either Maurice Lane or James Lane mentioned above. The newspaper notice suggests that Annie - and her two young sons - may have moved in with the family of Maurice/James after Edmond's death.

They had the following children.

+ 120 M i James Edward HUDSON was born on 10 Aug 1876. He died on 17 Mar 1943.

Edward HUDSON was born in Feb 1878 in Melbourne, Australia. He died in Feb 1879 in Melbourne, Australia.

Edward died at the age of 12 months.

45. Margaret HUDSON (Edward (Edmond) , Richard , William? , William ) was born about 3 Jun 1852 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She was christened on 4 Jun 1852 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 14 May 1910 in Sluicequarter, Duagh, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Abbeyfeale Old Churchyard, Co. Limerick.

The sponsor at Margaret's baptism was Mary Collins.

I am very grateful to Tom Moloney from Duagh for so much of the information you see below on the family of Margaret and her husband, John Moloney.

Margaret married John MOLONEY, son of John MOLONEY and Margaret O'BRIEN, on 15 Feb 1876 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. John was born in Jun 1849 in Rathcahill, Monagea, Co. Limerick. He was christened on 1 Jul 1849 in Monagea, Co. Limerick. He died on 3 Feb 1936 in Sluicequarter, Duagh, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Abbeyfeale Old Churchyard, Co. Limerick.

The sponsors at John's baptism were Patrick Enright and Bridget Mulcahy.

John and his wife, Margaret, lived in Sluicequarter, Duagh, Co. Kerry. Sluicequarter is located in the area of Duagh known as Islandanny, and the names Sluicequarter and Islandanny are often used interchangeably. The name Islandanny seems to have been used more in the 19th century when referring to Sluicequarter, while Sluicequarter appears to have been more commonly used in the 20th century.

Islandanny is not actually an official townland in Duagh parish, rather it is generally regarded as a grouping of the following townlands that lie north of the river Feale: Sluicequarter, Rea, Knocknacaheragh, Pilgrim Hill, Lacca East and Shronebeirne. The name Sluicequarter is not in fact used so much any more; Kilmorna - not an official townland either - has been increasingly used as an address by locals in recent decades due to the location of their local post office (now closed) in nearby Kilmorna.

Duagh researchers may also be interested in knowing that the other four townlands north of the river Feale are Rathoran, Kingsland, Islandboy East and Islandboy West. These last two townlands mentioned should not be confused with Islandboy which is another townland in Duagh, located south of the river. All three Islandboys were islands on the river several centuries ago. Islandboy West amounts to no more than about nine acres and has had nobody living there for a very long time, if ever. Islandboy East is just one farm. The current proprietor (in 2014) of the Islandboy East farm is John O'Connor (who is related to the O'Connors of Rathoran). Many thanks go to Tom Moloney from Duagh for clarifying the location of these Duagh addresses.

John died on 3 February 1936, not 14 February as engraved on his headstone.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were John Horgan and Richard Hudson.

The parish records give the date of the marriage as 15 February 1875 but it is actually 15 February 1876. One can see from the registers that the entries for January and February 1876 follow those of December 1875 but the year number was not changed when the new year began, hence the confusion.

Margaret and John had the following children.

Edmund MOLONEY was born on 26 Jul 1878 in Islandanny, Duagh, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 28 Jul 1878 in St. Brigid's Church, Duagh, Co. Kerry. He died before 14 Feb 1936.

The sponsors at Edmund's baptism were Edmund Hudson and Johanna Hudson.

It is thought that Edmund died young, probably before the 1901 census and definitely before the death of his father in 1936.

Denis's baptismal sponsors were Thomas Moloney and Mary Moloney.

Denis studied for the priesthood at All Hallows College, Dublin and was ordained for the diocese of Pittsburgh on 25 June 1907. He immediately left for the United States and began working as assistant pastor at the St. John the Evangelist's Church, South Side, Pittsburgh in October 1907. He was promoted to pastor five years later and thereafter served at St. Ann's Church, Waynesburg, Pennsylvania (1912-1923), St Malachy's Church, South Side, Pittsburgh (1923-25), and finally in the parish of St. Joseph, New Brighton, Pennsylvania (1925-1946). Fr. Denis was also dean ('vicar forane') of Lawrence County, Pennsylvania from 1935 to 1946. He died after a brief illness in January 1946.

49. Hanora (Johanna) HUDSON (Edward (Edmond) , Richard , William? , William ) was born about 1 May 1860 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She was christened on 3 May 1860 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 1 Mar 1932 in Templeathea, Athea, Co. Limerick. She was buried in Templeathea Cemetery, Co. Limerick.

I am making an assumption that Johanna was Hanora Hudson, daughter of Edmond and Nora Hudson, who was baptised on 3 May 1860. We know that Johanna was born about 1860 and I have been given the same date of death for both a Johanna and a Hanora Hudson, daughter of Edmund and Nora Hudson, which makes me think that they are the same person. I have therefore combined the information I have on both. If Hanora and Johanna are the same person it could be that, although Hanora/Johanna was christened Hanora, she was called Johanna after her older sister named Johanna who was born about 1857 and died in 1865, when Hanora was five.

Sponsors at Hanora's baptism were Cornelius Shanahan and Mary Shanahan. We have not managed to locate a baptism record for a Johanna Hudson born around this time to Edmond and Nora Hudson so we are assuming that Hanora's date of baptism and the sponsors named above are those of Johanna.      

Johanna's niece Bridget Hudson would marry James Hayes, a second cousin of Johanna's husband, Tom Hayes.

Hanora married Thomas (Tom) HAYES, son of Michael HAYES and Catherine BROUDER, on 22 Feb 1881 in Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. Thomas was born on 5 Oct 1856 in Fairy Street, Templeathea, Athea, Co. Limerick. He died on 25 May 1918 in Templeathea, Athea, Co. Limerick. He was buried in Templeathea Cemetery, Co. Limerick.

Tom was an only child. His baptismal sponsors were Thomas Hayes and Helen Hayes.

The 1911 census tells us that Tom and his wife, Johanna, had been married for 30 years and had 10 children born alive, seven of whom were still alive at the time of the census.

A Daniel Hayes of Templeathea, who died on 3 April 1973 aged 80, is buried in Templeathea Churchyard. Could Daniel have been related to Tom's family? Daniel's wife, Mary (Molly), who died on 20 January 1989 aged 98, is buried with him.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were Michael Hayes and William Hudson.

Hanora and Thomas had the following children.

+ 139 F i Catherine (Katie) HAYES was born on 9 Dec 1881.
  140 F ii
Honora (Nora) HAYES was born on 24 Feb 1883 in Fairy Street, Templeathea, Athea, Co. Limerick. She was christened on 26 Feb 1883 in Athea, Co. Limerick. She died on 16 Oct 1913 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She was buried on 18 Oct 1913 in Christ Our Redeemer Cemetery, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Sponsors at Nora's baptism were Jeremiah Hudson and Johanna Hudson.

Nora appears to have emigrated to the United States around 1906. She was working as a servant for a William Cohn of Marlborough Ave., Pittsburgh at the time of the 1910 census and it seems she returned to Ireland on a visit in 1911 as Ellis Island records show she sailed from Queenstown on 6 October of that year . She was travelling with a Hannah Cooney whose husband Patrick lived at 855 Kirkpatrick St. in Pittsburg. Hanora also gave Patrick as her American contact on the ship manifest. Both Nora and Hannah stated that they had previously been in the U.S. and had been in Pittsburgh in 1906.

Sadly, Nora, who was unmarried, died in a drowning incident at the age of 30. Her death certificate states that her death was "probably suicide" and tells us she was found "at a point between the Allegheny and Mononahela rivers" in Pittsburgh. Her address at the time was 1104 Progress St., Pittsburgh and the informant was a Patrick Cooney of 1604 Progress St., presumably the same Patrick Cooney mentioned above.
