  • Anne-Marie,

    Family aren’t listed in the tithe applotment records for Templepatrick in 1833. So they weren’t farmers. Labourers or tradesmen, perhaps. Likewise they are not in Griffiths Valuation for Cloghanduff (standardised spelling) nor anywhere else in the parish in 1862.

    I did find a Jane Carslaw who died in Antrim workhouse, on 17.8.1874, aged 64. She was married and was the wife of a servant. Normal address not given.

    William Carslaw, bachelor, and retired school teacher died in 1914 aged 68:

    That household in 1901. Duncansland is not too far from Cloghanduff.

    Death registration only started in Ireland in 1864. I suspect that William senior died before that year.


    One Carslaw probate file in PRONI:

    Carslaw, Evelyn Victoria of Newtona Abingdon and of 3 Park Crescent Abingdon both in Berkshire died 31 March 1961 at latter place Probate Oxford 26 May to Douglas Patrick Levis Carslaw solicitor and Francis William Lochhead Carslaw major (retired) R.A. Effects in Northern Ireland £354. Re-sealed Belfast 30 August.

  • Thanks. It's possible that the death records are for the oldest and youngest children.
