I am looking for information on both Samuel M Marshall and Leslie Cunningham Marshall.
Leslie C Marshall was the author of 'The practical flax spinner: Being a description of the growth, manipulation, and spinning of flax and tow (1885)'.
In an undated article/letter by a Clifford Carter about Leslie Marshall it states "...One book, published some 60 years ago at 7/6 is now worth many times that figure" suggesting that the article was written in the 1940's.
Leslie C Marshall b1852 was the son of Rev James Marshall "rector of Ligioniel Parish of Belfast" (St Marks, Ballysillan)."The Marshalls came originally from Garten, Co Donegal, where they were important land-owners".
I have found reference to the Marshalls owning 600 acres, but I am surprised that they might be described as "Important land-owners".
"...Leslie served his apprenticeship in the Drumaness Mill of Hurdts Ltd, Ballynahinch..." Leslie emigrated to NZ about 1800 to improve his health. He returned to Ireland about 1884 to publish his book, and met his wife to be Louisa Jane Fowler.
The article finishes with "It is good to know that a member of the Marshall family is still actively engaged in Ulster's staple industry. Mr Samuel M Marshall, the well known Belfast yarn & cloth merchant, is a cousin of the great writer".
I would be grateful for any information or suggestions on where to look for more info on the Marshall family of Gartan and Ligionel.
I am looking for info on James McKain, the elder, James McKain, the younger, George , Margery, and Ann McKain of Muinfad, co Donegal. Also Elinor Marshall of Tediglas, widow of John Marshall of Mineymore, co Donegal.
As per a deed dated 29 Jan 1821 relating to lands situate in the parish of Taughboyne & County of Donegal.
I'm helping a friend who is trying to find origins and possible
connections of McMenamin families in NZ.
Edward McMenamin (c1835-1918) married Jane Brown and had 11 children
James McMenamin (c1837-1886) married Annie Craig . No children found. On
his death she married Wyeth
John McMenamin (c1843-1925) married Elizabeth Wrighton and had 7
Andrew Mcmenamin (c1846-1921) married Mary Francis and had 10 children
Patrick McMenamin (c1855-1917) married Mary Murphy. No children found.
James McMenamin (c1855-1925) married Mary Ellen Creig and had 7
children. He died in Sydney.
Unfortunately only known parents of any of the above six McMenamins come
from and Ancestry tree
that suggest Edward's parents as Patrick McMenamin & Annie McGowan. I've
been unable to find a
marriage or any children for this couple, or likely baptisms for any of
the six using FindMyPast Ireland.
Circumstantial evidence from Papers Past in NZ suggest James, Patrick &
Andrew are brothers.
Possibly Edward & John are brothers or cousins, and the second James a
Does anybody recognise any of these families?
My friend descends from John McMenamin & Elizabeth Wrighton.
I'm hesitant to go to the costly exercise of purchasing death
certificates for each of them and find
that they don't have and parent details.
