first i must thank you for helping me.if you were close at hand i would have taken you out for a pint of beer,you came out of the blue ,my heart jumped into my mouth,
but sorry to say Thomas was born in 1890 by the 1901 census.and died in 1937, 47 years old ,he worked just before he died,at trinity college
and michael Murphy was born 1887 by the 1911 census and was still living at number 1 westmoreland park in 1943,when his brother peter died
going back to john Murphy born Dublin 1850 the father, he worked as stableman to trinity college,as we have been told
and Ann Murphy his wife born in wicklow in 1851,
it seems a reverend William Kerr from monagahan, applied for a servant ,and Anne answered and went to work in co monaghan ,William Kerr had a daughter maria Elizabeth Kerr.
now she married another reverend William boroughs Gregg in 1870
and moved to Dublin,not sure where he lived but they took anne ,with them as a servant
in 1871 maria and William had a baby boy named henry Burroughs Gregg
in the same year Anne met and married john Murphy
in 1872 peter Murphy was born
in 1876 john Murphy was born
in 1882 pa trick Murphy was born
in 1887 michael Murphy was born
in 1890 Thomas Murphy was born
William Burroughs Gregg died in 81 Grosvenor Sq Dublin in 1898 leaving all his possessions to his wife .maria Elizabeth Gregg at 29 leeson park avenue
where we found the Murphy family living in the 1901, census with maria gregg head of family
Anne Murphy age 50 servant,john Murphy age 51 stableman ( Anne still her servant)
maria Gregg died in dec 1904 leaving everything to her son Henry Burroughs Gregg
leeson park ave was sold off in 1905 ,
so the Murphy family had to find a new home
now i don.t know when they moved into 1 westmoreland park
but they were there in 1911 census .
residents of a house 1 westmoreland park rathmines and rathgar,east Dublin
but now john Murphy is dead,Ann Murphy a widow
