Other Facts

  • Reference Number: Mary Phelan had reference number 8352.
  • Education: She was educated in 1901 Could Not read.1
  • Religious Affiliation: She was affiliated with Roman Catholic in 1901.1
  • Occupation: She was a Scholar in 1901.1

Narrative

In 1901 Census the family are shown as having living with them two nieces:
Ellen Kane niece R.C. Cannot read or write Aged 5 Scholar Single.
Elizabeth Kane niece RC Cannot read or write Aged 4 Scholar Single.
It is not known whether the Kanes are related to Michael or his wife Johanna.

The 1911 Roskelton Census Return shows a discrepancy with the 1901 return in relation to ages that may indicate birthdate in relation to return dates.
1901 Census states that Mary was 5 years (Born in 1896)
1911 Census states that Mary was 16 years (Born in 1895)

Whilst there are a number of discrepancies it seems that the two families in the two censuses are one and the same. The family names are the same and it would appear too great a coincidence for it to be otherwise.

Roskelton Census Return 1911 indicates that Michael was Head of Household in 1911 but shows a discrepancy on age with 1901 return. This MAY give at least one incorrect age or indicator as to the month of birth in relation to Returns.
Census 1901 shows Michael's age as 30 years (date of birth: 1871)
Census 1911 shows Michael's age as 45 years (date of birth: 1866)
The later may be more accurate as he is more likely to have completed it himself.

In 1911 two Boarders were shown: Isabella McDonnell a 64 year old retired farmer's widow born in England and Patrick Ryan a 7 year old scholar. Both were shown as Roman Catholic.

  • Religious Affiliation: He was affiliated with Roman Catholic in 1901.1
  • Occupation: He was an Agricultural Labourer in 1901.1

Narrative

In 1901 the Roskelton Census return the family are shown as having living with them two nieces:
Ellen Kane niece R.C. Cannot read or write Aged 5 Scholar Single.
Elizabeth Kane niece RC Cannot read or write Aged 4 Scholar Single.
It is not known whether the Kanes are related to Michael or his wife Johanna.

The 1911 Roskelton Census Return shows a discrepancy with the 1901 return in relation to ages that may indicate poor quality entries.
1901 Census states that Michael was 36 years (Born in 1865)
1911 census states that Michael was 60 years (Born in 1851)
It would seem possible that Michaels entry in 1901 of 50 was interpreted as 36.

Whilst there are a number of discrepancies it seems that the two families in the two censuses are one and the same. The family names are the same and it would appear too great a coincidence for it to be otherwise.

Hi Brian,

Thanks so much for getting back to me. It will be nice to have your hand to hold while I go thru this frustrating search.
Today I xeroxed a package of materials to send my sisters, and cousins, well at least 6 people I think may be interested. It included the page from the baptism microfilm, and enlargement of same, enlargements of the lines (names) I copied thru the light table, map of Ireland showing Queens/Leix/Laois, marriage certificate of my great grandparents which lists their parents, a close up map showing Cappanarrow near Roscrea, and an old parish map showing the concentration of the name Patrick Phelan that I derived from the Griffith's Evaluation for Queens.
John Phelan, my great-grandfather shows his marriage date as Aug 18, 1875 in Massachusetts, 3rd marriage, parents Patrick Phelan and Mary ---. His age is given as 38. Counting back that looks like 1837 for birthdate. On another form it looks like he has written his birthdate as June 1837 (may be a census form), anyway the age he gives on the 1880 census agrees that he was born in 1837. So the baptism line I picked up for him (possibly) goes like this:
Aug 1837 day
24 B John Pat Phelan Mary Delany Young Mary Phelan Coolsum
--- John Doyle Mary
Delaney Coolsumelean
Well I am sorry but I will have to stop here. Must run off to an LDS meeting for the Irish Group I joined---think it's their last.
More later,
Helen Chamblee.

Narrative

1911 Roskelton Census Return show a discrepancy with the 1901 return which may be attributed to misinterpretation

1901 return shows William as aged 40 years (born: 1861)
1911 return shows William as aged 45 years (born: 1866)

This discrepancy possibly comes from interpreting William's 1901 entry of 36 as 40.

There is a possibility that the persons in the two Returns are different as he could have left the area. But the 1911 indicates that William is now a widower and the 1901 shows him married to Mary. Further, there are no other likely candidates in the 1911 return for him to be compared with.

In 1911 Roskelton Census his wife Bridget is shown as a widow so it appears that William dies between 1901 and 1911.
