Hannan Craglea

I am trying to trace the family of my granduncle Anthony J Hannan who was born at Craglea, Killaloe in 1883 or 1884. He emigrated to England and is recorded in the 1911 UK Census at Woolwich London Reg District No 30 as a Police Constable.He may have died in Brighton in 1937, but I am not sure of this.

I have no knowledge of his family, if any, but would like to make contact with them.

  • Hi John

    Here is Anthony's birth, actually in 1882.

    Here is the family in 1901.

    And in 1911.

    This is the marriage of his sister Mary Kate.

    This is father, Cornelius' death

    You may be able to trace the children of Mary Kate and Peter Duggan, but as these people may be living, I cannot do this for you.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Miriam,

    Thanks for your post.

    The Census for 1911 is not on your post as both are for 1901. I have the 1911 census and Anthony is not on same.

    Mary Kate and Peter Duggan had no children, but lived in Killaloe for many years. Mary Kate died in 1956.

    Anthony went to England but was never heard of again, and hence my wish to trace his family.

    All the best

  • John,

    When you said family I presumed you meant his extended family, now I realise you mean his descendants if he had any.

    Do you have certain knowledge that Anthony entered the Police Force?

  • Hi Miriam,

    Apologies for misleading. Yes I have a photograph of Anthony in police uniform and the 1911 Census has him listed as a police constable. He is listed as residing in a police barracks in London. I am not sure if the death notice of an Anthony Hannon Police Constable who died in Brighton 1937 is one and the same. Any help you can give will be much appreciated.

  • Hi John,

    I have done a bit more searching and have found no evidence of Anthony anywhere. I searched the 1939 register which shows the actual date of birth leaving little doubt of identity. He does not appear on the register, this leads me to believe he had died or left the UK by 1939.

    I think you need to request a copy of the death in 1937 in order to rule it in or out. You can do this online. Link here.

    Hopefully this will clear it up. It should show his occupation and might include next of kin if he died at home.

    There is some information here about obtaining service records, this may be of help if you find that the 1937 death was your Anthony, again it may include details of dependants.

    Sorry I could not be of more help.

    Good luck with your research.
