Hello, I am searching for information on the GIBBONS and MURPHY families,they came to England from Ireland,I dont have many details so any information would be greatly appreciated;
My grandfather Thomas GIBBONS son of Patrick,married Julia MURPHY daughter of John,at St Thomas of Canterbury Goole England,13th June 1910,At that time Thomas was aged 34,occ boilermaker,residing at George St, Sunderland Eng,Julia was 21,residing at the Sailors Homes Goole Eng,her father occ boilermaker was deceased at the time of her marriage,don't know whether he died in Ireland or England,her mothers name unknown,I have no other information other thatn was on her marriage cert.Thomas and Julia moved to Sunderland where they had 2 sons John Thomas and Francis(my father) 1 daughter died 1918 aged 3 at Union St, Stockton England,Thomas died 15th Nov 1924,Julia died 9th Feb 1928,their address at that time was still Union St Stockton.
I have found a Gibbons family on the 1881 census who could be mine,but cannot as yet be 100% sure.These are the details from census;
Patrick Gibbons, Head occ Iron Ship Labourer age 33 born Ire
Margaret, wife age 30 born Ire
John,son age 12 born Ire
Thomas,son age 11 born South Shields Eng
Mary A age 8 born S/Shields
Kate age 6 born S/shields
Margaret age 4 born Sunderland
Frances,age 2 born S/land
Patrick age 1 born S/land
Address 24 Deptford Tce Sunderland
On Thomas's marriage cert he is aged 34, on his death cert he is 52,on church record of his death he is 59.these obviously cannot be correct.When Thomas and Julia died their 2 sons came back to Sunderland to live with an aunt Meg (Margaret)her marriage name was Laraman.
Hope you can understand all of this, any info would be greatly appreciated,or any advice on how to learn more about these 2 families.
Kind Regards
