My uncle told me that his grandmother was an O’Malley before she married. So Margaret O’Malley mentioned in the 1901 census would be my great-great-grandmother. I’ll have to see if I’ve got that sorted out correctly? Michael & Catherine, head of the family would be my great-grand-father & great-grandmother and Michael, the son of eleven, would be grandfather.
It’s very touching, just looking at the signature of a great-grandfather in the census image Household Return (Form A) that I never knew. He wrote in the same style of writing that I was taught, where the letters are all joined up together.
I was given the name Margaret for my confirmation by Sr. F at Goldenbridge. I see from the census forms that Margaret is a very prevalent Christian name, so that’s very pleasing indeed.
