        Her medal was on the antiques roadshow. ( NZ 10 th February 2017 ) It was probably bronze but had been gilded. Pawned a long time ago and the relative of the pawnbroker took it to get it valued.

        John McMahon, older brother, may have been the father of my Great-Grandmother, Sarah McMahon Woolley. Sarah would be inconsolable for about a month before and after the anniversary of the sinking - as remembered by her children and grandchildren. We don't know who her relation(S) were who were lost, but John, b 1871, may be a match as brother to Martin. Please advise.

        I am doing some research on Elsie Edith Bowerman. I know she lived at 145 London Road, St. Leonard's-on-Sea in her early life and had a neighbour called Isabella Asser who lived in 143 London Road. What I would like to know did she refer to this neighbour as "Auntie Bell" ?

        RIP Hannah. I am a distant relative. We visited the Naughtons in Donoughmore in 1996. This was a year after our father, William Naughton, died. We have relatives buried in the cemetary at Stuake.

        This may be of help: Census 1901 and 1911 show Thomas's father as Alexander and mother as Emily. On your bio I think you have put the details of his grandparents. My interest in this is because my family home was 1 Harley Street, Liverpool (L9 8DS) and this is the same address where Thomas and his family lived. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0859f536902973c35045c59cfa9a176d40c2b47d4dea929468375013f33ad976.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4103ca78832c4d3a2fec7b52f7691aca95cce350df...

        Maybe George Hopgood was his father? That would seem like a worthwhile explanation for a name change. Or maybe Daddy got into big trouble and had to take an alias?
