Michael Dolan 1823

Place of migration:
Stayed in Ireland

My great great Grandfather, Michael, is as far back as I have been able to trace.

He was a Tailor, living in the Lawrencetown/Kiltormer/Aughrim area near Ballinasloe. He had two sisters, Margaret and Mary.

He was married to Catherine Goode on 14th March 1846 at the RC Church, Lawrencetown. They had five children - Thomas 1846-, my great Grandfather Patrick 1849-1903, John 1851-, Anne 1853- and Michael 1855-1935. Both sons Patrick and Michael were also Tailoers, as was my Grandfather, Martin and his brother, Stephen.

I don't know exactly where Michael and Catherine lived, but on Michaels's death in Ballinasloe Workhouse hospital in 1899, his parish was noted to be Aughrim. He died as a widower, aged 76. Cause of death was given as "senile debility". I note that many more workhouse deaths were so recorded.

Does anybody know how rural Tailors plied their trade in the 19th century? Did they have a shop or work from their home?

Thanks  from Graham Dolan
