View Full Version : James Edward RYAN (* abt 1862, 1911)

James Edward RYAN died in the Cape (Wynberg district) on 8 Jan 1911. Although the death record image on FamilySearch says he was 47 years old and born in England, I have good reason to believe he was born in Maynooth/Laraghbryan, Co. Kildare, in 1862 or 1863.

I wonder if anyone on their next visit to the National Library of Ireland could please look up the baptisms and marriages (film no. P.6615) in Maymooth to see if they yield any further information about James Edward RYAN, as well as his parents and possible siblings (he may well have had a brother around the same age who emigrated to Australia +/- 1880).

An unattested reference on Ancestry gives his date of birth as 28 Feb 1862.

Thank you.

I'm still hoping that someone will be able to help me with this query.
