Re: looking for the1911 census for 37 durham street

Hi Bridie

In 1911 two families seemed to have shared that property (names Rosbotham and McLaughlin). There was a John Magee living there (perhaps a lodger) and he was listed as being 33 years old but the only sign of Mary Ann is a 1 year old listed as Mary Ann Mahood .... I'm willing to bet this is a spelling mistake on behalf of the census agent because the baby is listed as being the daughter of Mary Ann Rosbotham. If John is your grandfather, then perhaps he and Mary Ann were not married. (Don't worry, we all find skeletons in the closet researching our family history )

If the above doesn't ring true for you then perhaps you could provide some more details (as in other family members names). If so, I'll do some rummaging around for you .... but I can't promise anything

Re: looking for the1911 census for 37 durham street

Bridie, Mary Ann Rosbotham is registered living in 37 Durham street for at least 20 years , could have been multiple residents and not all registered .

Re: looking for the1911 census for 37 durham street

This may be a red herring and it muddies the water even further. On 31 Jan 1898 William Mahood married Isabella Cooney (formerly Rosbotham) in St. Annes Church of Ireland, Shankill.

Re: looking for the1911 census for 37 durham street

Hiya Bridie

Are you sure it was Joseph Mahood? I've checked every Mahood listed and can't seem to find any who was a policeman.

I'm on a mission now so throw me a few more clues!
