Last time we got as far as Hugh O’Hanlon of Newry, born 1721 who survived to 1 April 1807. By his wife Elizabeth (d. 2 May 1778 aged 42 years) he had issue: ….
1 Hugh, who was living of Monaghan Street Newry in 1819
2 Patrick B.L. (more on him shortly!)
3 A daughter who married John Durning of Jamaica
4 Eleanor, born 1753 who married Michael Byrne of Dublin
Patrick, above, converted to Protestantism and emigrated to Calcutta in 1843. There, when the Great Hunger struck Ireland, he collected a sizable amount of money and sent it home for the relief of the destitute.
He married Frances, daughter of Thomas Smyth of The Fence, Yorkshire. She died in November 1810 aged just 34 years. He left issue:
1 Hugh Marmaduke, B.L. who died 8 June 1844
2 Pringle, Captain in the 1st Bengal Cavalry
3 Edward, Lieutenant in the Bengal Artillery who died of wounds received in the Burmese War on 15 December 1824, aged just 21 years
4 Sarah, who on 22 July 1804 married Ensign William Alexander of the Second Reserve.
We hope we have demonstrated how one’s family line (in this case, that of the O’Hanlons) can be successfully traced back far into history.
