James Crowley (1844) Census records 1901

This is a really important find. We see many of James and Mary’s chrildren still living here plus the six murphy children who were later brought up by Christopher and his wife after James died. Mary his wife also lived with Christopher and was from what we hear the real boss in house. We discovered Christophers census records first. It should be said that Mary had a very difficult life. Her husband James fled to America after the Fenian rising and came back four years later. He left her to raise 3 children on her own. Within a year of his return Daniel Stephen was born. Mary also raised the six! Murphy children after the death of their daughter Margaret. More information can be gleaned from our Some missing Murphy’s article and more importantly My Memories of Mum (Lizzie Murphy) By Liz’s daughter, Mary O’Connell
