Thomas Blackmore from Galway

Thomas Blackmore from Galway

Hi group.
I am wanting to make contact with of find someone who has information on the Blackmore family from Galway. in 1901 they live at 9 Henry Street [Galway West Urban, Galway].
In 1901 16 year old Frederick and 17 year old Thomas Blackmore set sale on the Anchoria for America. I can locate Frederick in America but cannot find Thomas. In 1905 the rest of the family Thomas [father] Mary Jane [mother] and the following children Annie, Elizabeth, Albert John, Amelia. Christopher and Francis all Leave Galway and emigrate to USA. I have tracked most of the family in America but still the son Thomas eludes me.
I am thinking he left America between 1901 and 1905 and headed for New Zealand. I have located a Thomas on the 1905 electoral rolls of NZ. He is not on previous ones. I am hoping maybe there is someone also researching this family, and they also loose this Thomas, I do not mind claming him as mine
Thanks
Linda Blackmoore

In the 1901 Census @ #9 Henry Street, there is no THOMAS, except the father, unless I'm going blind. A
Frederick 15 and the other's are there. Thomas 43 was born in England all the others in Galway.

I do not find any other Thomas on Blackmore Street or in Galway but the father. 1901 or 1911. Perhaps the Thomas Blackmore that travelled with Frederick was a cousin not a brother?

The only Blackmore in Galway in 1911 was a John Blackmore age 11 who is a student at the St. Joseph's Industrial School, Rahoon, Salthill.

Perhaps Thomas went somewhere else? England maybe?

19l1 UK Census:
Thomas H. Blackmore age 37, born Ireland, living Plymouth, Devonshire

1891 UK Census:
Thomas Blackmore age 17 born Ireland, Newphew living
Tavistock, Milton Abbott Devonshire

Hope this is all correct and is of some assistance.

Thank you for that.
I did not say Thomas was in the 1901 census I said he and his brother left Ireland in 1901. I do have his birth certificate, along with his grandparents death certificates.
I am hoping to make contact with relations in USA.
thanks for your information much appreciated.
