Hi Aoife
I'm so delighted to hear from you! My great grandfather was Patrick Breen, Ellens youngest brother. I know so much about Patrick and his brother James but just couldn't find out what happened to Ellen and their older sister Catherine (Kate).
I found Ellen married and living in Byransford, Co. Down on the 1901 census. I know that they had 8 children at this stage and her parents Hugh and Mary were living in Byransford too. By 1911 Hugh and Mary are back in Brookeborough.
Where did Ellen and her family go after 1901? Do you know anything about her older sister Kate? Her married name was possibly Moss.

Both James and Patrick went to Belfast and were Spirit Grocers. Sadly in 1899 James, his wife and baby died and Patrick also lost his two children around the same time. It may well have been due to typhoid. In 1902 Patrick went to Birkenhead to work and when he became ill his wife Maggie went over to him. They both died that summer leaving their two youngest children at home in Ireland. The oldest of which was Margaret (Pearl)- my granny.

looking forward to hearing from you.
Regards
Esbie
