Thomas Peter Hanley Kent, England Jan 21, 2005
I am trying to find the birthplace in Ireland of my grandfather Thomas Hanley who died in December 1929 aged 69 at a village called Feniscowles, Nr. Blackburn, Lancashire.
I remember being told that the first born son has to be called Thomas. My father and myself follow this pattern and as my grandfather and great grandfather are all called Thomas I have presumed that they too were first born sons.
Census 1891 and 1901 only show Ireland as place of birth. My great grandfather is named on the wedding certificate of my grandfather.
Looking at the Irish Times site Cloontuskert, Co. Roscommon seems the likeliest place.
Although I will be visiting the area in the Autumn of 2005 any help previous to this would be very much appreciated.
