Martin Murphy was born in Crossmolina on the 1st November 1878. I am his great granddaughter and am trying to find out more about him. We know that he left Ireland to come to England but do not know when. We find him on a census in 1901 , he was unmarried at the time and living as a boarder in the town of Brighouse, West Yorkshire, England, He was working as a stone quarryman - miner.
On 23rd May 1903 he married Margaret Mc Hugh who was born on 6th May 1882 in Liverpool. She had 3 sisters, Catherine, Mary & Annie and brother Thomas. It appears she and her siblings were all born in Liverpool.
By 1911 Martin & Margaret had a son and 2 daughters and had settled in Halifax West Yorkshire England.
In 1931 Martin became the landlord of The Lower George hotel in Woolshops Halifax England. He and his family lived there for 7 years.
His wife Margaret died in 1944 and Martin remarried in 1947 to Doris Stephenson, they went to live in Wyke, Bradford West Yorkshire England and lived there until he died in 1967.
I am trying to find out about his life before he went to live in England. I would like to know if he had any siblings and information about them and his parents. The only thing I know about any of them was that his father was called John (as evidenced on his marriage certificate).
