I am the grandson of the above person and am looking for further information about him. He was born in Ireland, possibly Dublin in 1866, emigrated to England and married Jane Bond (1864-1960) in 1886; they had seven living children. He was a boot salesman and died in 1899 of meningitis. His father was John Gay (no dates) also of Ireland and was an assistant librarian. There is a family legend that he had a brother who emigrated to USA and was a priest or even a bishop there.
Thanks for any help
