The Farrell family formaly Westfaugh and 10 camp street 1901/1911
By John Harris
My mother Eleanor Honoira Farrell was born in Oughterad in 1893 and lived with her brother Patrck and her parents Patrick Farell and Eleanor Farrell (nee Osborne) at two different address’s 1901 at 49 Faugh West and at 10 Camp street.
My Grandfather’s occupation was a boot/shoe maker the only one of this occupation I could find in the census for Oughterard. My mother (now deceased) did talk about her life their and left during troubled times to work in London.
I wondered if there were any records of this family and if and relatives from the Osborne side still live in the area.
My Grandparents died aged 65 around 1921/1922 (not sure of the exact date). I am well and truly retired now but would like to leave some record to my Irish roots to my family which includes 7 Great Grand children of my Irish side of my ancestry.
I appreciate this period was a long time ago and not many if any can re-call the period. However as my grandfather was an artisan a( with a creative specialist trade there might be some be some record of him
I am also looking for publication which my cover the period 1893 to 1925 on the history of Oughterad.
I have just discovered this site and would like to thank the people who set it up it’s wonderful keep records of your heritage, in this day and age it’s unusual.
