Norman made some notes about discovering this which are attached.She was a very kind and lovely woman from the authors knowledge. Brackley, Emily (P121)

22 EDWARD DESPARD 1874-1918

Born 16/07/1874 in Kilmalogue, Queens County.
His father registered his birth on 16/09/1874

There is an inscription dated 24th January 1882 in a book of ‘morality’ stories which appears to have been presented to Edward at Portarlington Methodist Sunday School. In the back he has written his address and added two initials to his name.
Edward J S Despard.
Henry Street Tullamore Kings County Ireland

The family had told me that his name was Edward John Smith Despard (? His maternal grandfather’s name)

The family say that Edward went to work in his mother’s family’s French polishing business in Cork This would have been around 1900 and it is conceivable that the parents relocated to Cork after his father retired from the RIC in Kings County but there is no evidence that either had previous connections with Cork.
It is then said that Edward went on business to the family home of the Cunninghams (tea tasters) in County Monaghan where he met their governess Letitia Gillis.

Edward and Letitia were married in at

Edward then took a job as a salesman with Olivetti typewriters in Belfast. (The 1901 census lists an Edward J Despard as head of household at Agencourt Avenue Belfast) Their three eldest children were born there. The Belfast address was said by the family to be Ryleston Terrace.

His work took him to London and it is suggested that the family moved between Belfast and London on more than one occasion. They lived in Plumstead at one point. By 1906 he was working for Remingtons in East Ham where the two younger children were born.

Edward David Gillis 21 09 1902
Doris Jeanette Gillis 16 06 1904
Helen Valentine Gillis 14 02 1906
William George Faulkner 22 03 1908
Eileen Letitia 16 01 1910
Then a miscarriage

It is said that Letitia’s ill-health prompted a move out of the city to Essex. They lived in Pitsea and by 1914, they were renting Wardens Farmhouse in Althorne near Burnham on Crouch and Edward went to work in a munitions factory.

Edward, who was said to have been a drinker, died of TB (?caught from a cow on the farm?) aged 42 on 25/01/1918 and was buried in Althorne Church.
Letitia subsequently kept/worked in a tobacconist shop in Althorne. She had a stroke in the mid 1930s (?in Devon) and subsequently lived with Rex in Burnham until WW2. She continued to live with various of her children until her death in Doris’ care on 21/01/1951. She is also buried at Althorne.

24 Genealogy – Irene Patricia Merci Tooker

Irene was a born and bred London girl. After WWI (date not known) the family moved to Gunnislake in East Cornwall, where her father managed the local brickworks. There she met Hedley John Worth Tooker whose family lived next door. It was said that Johnny, as she always called him, was digging the family vegetable patch by lamplight when she first met him!

Family stories say that Irene had some competition for Hedley from her younger sister, Eileen, not helped by Irene's preference for working in London where she had a job as Secretary? of the Crystal Palace football club. Her sister-in-law remembered her as a “flaming red-head who knew what she wanted”. She was an organised person. Once, when when stooking oats at Dunkeswell (near Honiton) she saw her son Michael move to pick up a sheaf, thinking she had missed it. Irene said very calmly “I should leave that one Michael – there's an adder underneath it”. That's when she told Michael about seeing adders basking on the Cornish rocks in her younger days.

Another story is of her travelling between Cornwall and London to her wedding, with a friend, possibly the “best man”? The car broke down and they had to stop overnight at an hotel. Shock horror!

During WWII she worked in a Forces canteen in Paignton, while her mother looked after my sister and me. No fun for me!

After the war, when Hedley resumed farming, she became a very adaptable farm wife, but unimpressed with the “crabby” Devon country folk, and never got the hang of the dialect. She had to manage one farm (Luscombe) for several months when Hedley was months in Exeter hospital having his right thigh reset - after dropping a tree on it. I think her main bugbear was the bank manager who wasn't used to dealing with a woman client! The phrase “the Married Women's Matrimonial Act was passed in 1935” was heard more than once.

31 Guilcaugh Church, Co Waterford« Sent to: John Despard on: Wednesday 11 April 18 19:42 BST (UK) »

Hi John

I saw you post here: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=756261.0
about your Despard ancestor marrying at Guilcaugh Church, which was near Portlaw, Co Waterford.

I'm not a relation and I can't help you with information about your family unfortunately I found that my family had connections to that area also and thought you might be interested to know.

My ancestors George SAUNDERS and his wife Catherine (daughter of John THOMPSON) lived in Portlaw and then later at the schoolhouse which was the opposite side of the road to the Guilcaugh Church. They probably knew or at least met your ancestors. The Church was Church of Ireland in what I think was mostly a Catholic area.

You said that one of the Witnesses to the marriage was John THOMPSON. I think there were Thompson's in the area who were farmers. My ancestor Catherine THOMPSON was the daughter of John THOMPSON a labourer. Unfortunately I don't know when/where she was born, but she married in 1855 at Guilcagh Church, Ballycahane, Portlaw, Co. Waterford. Ballycahane was (or still is??) a townland in the parish of Guilcagh. Guilcagh also known as Gilco. Guilcagh is a civil parish.

In 1864 George and Catherine were living at William Street in Portlaw.
In 1867 they were at Ballycahane, the school house being near Guilcagh Church.
March 1872, at Ballycahane.
In Nov 1872 when Catherine had another baby, the birth certificate showed she was living back in Portlaw, Brown Street, but that her husband was in America and his was described as a Commercial Clerk & Schoolmaster.

I don't know what happened to George and Catherine Saunders after 1872. One daughter married in Waterford and they moved to London and eventually New Zealand. Another met an English police man and moved to England where they married. A son moved to London where he was a painter, and eventually moved to the Hampshire area.

I've also just found out that the Guilcaugh Church has been renovated and is let out to visitors on Air B&B, so if you search for it you will be able to see photos. Several years ago (the last time I looked it up!) it had been used as a workshop and storage space and was up for sale.

Lord Waterford lived not far away at Curraghmore House, and I believe his family may have been Church of Ireland, not Catholic anyway. I believe the estate staff were both religions.

Hope you're having more luck with your Irish research than I am.

Angelfish.
