  • Notes 
    • My grand uncle Henry Finnegan was born in Sealkote which is today part of Pakistan near the border with India. He came to live in Scotland when his father John left the army in 1879. He married Sarah Coady in 1900 and they had at least seven children together. Henry was a spirit salesman and for a time owned a public house in the south side of Glasgow.
      He was admitted to St Joseph's Nursing Home, 14 Cumnock Road, Robroysto
      Glasgow on the 27th of November 1953. This private nursing home is run by The Little Sisters of the Poor. Henrys occupation upon admission to the home was given as commissionaire. He died in the home on the 27th of May 1959 aged 85 years. At the time of his death he was recorded as widower of Sarah Coady.
      His last known address before admission to the home was 137 Dixon Road, Glasgow, South East, where he apparently lived with his daughter Mrs Elizabeth Rice.

      [CASSIDYLOFTUSBRENNAN.FTW] My grandmother's brother Henry Finnegan married Sarah Coady in a Roman Catholic Church but I do not have the name of the church only it's location. Henry was a spirit salesman at the time of his marriage, his bride Sarah was a domestic servant, the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Coady, Sarah's father owned his own sweet shop.

    13. .
      John and Julia were actually married on the 22nd of October 1868. He was 28 years old and she was not quite 14. They were married in St Pauls R.C. Church, Dilkusha, Lucknow, India by a Father Francis. John gave his father's name as Michael Finnigan even though he states on his second marriage certificate that his father's name was John. The witnesses at their marriage were Denis Carey and M.A. Hickey. I presume that M.A. Hickey was Marianna Hickey, Julia's younger sister.
