O'Henly on Eriskay

Title: O'Henly on Eriskay
Posted by: Visby Hildebrand on 16-02-2009

Discussion: Hello from California! I'm looking for the parents of (in the 1841 census) Allan O'Henly & siblings: Malcolm, Donald, Collin, Anny, Jessy and Angus. Confirmation of Jessy, age 55, being their mother would be great. Collin is my Great-Great Grandfather and is on Eriskay in the 1851 census with Malcolm and some of the other siblings. Thank you so much for your help!

The last line on previous should read "Don't take this as fact" - Sorry!!!

I know your posting about O'Henley's is quite old so I don't know if you are any further forward but this may help others too.

I done a search through my "Uist" info. & have come up with:-

Allan O'Henley (Milton, South Uist) & Janet MacDonald (North Uist) married 24th May 1836 @ Bornish, South Uist.

Kids I could find:-

Janet b 25 Sep 1836 South Boisdale & baptised March 1838 (could be a transcription error)

Murdo b Jul 1838 S/Boisdale & baptised 19 Jul 1838

Angus b 27 Aug 1839 S/B & baptised 1 Sep 1839

Angus b 22 Dec 1842 S/B & baptised 26 Dec 1842

Often where 2 kids are named the same so close together is an indication of the younger having died in infancy - but take this as fact.
