PECK of TAITA
Hi there! James Henry was my great great grandfather. My grandmother was Kathleen O'Donoghue. I have some letters from the Walker family in South Africa that have a bit of info about the Henry children. I'll have to dig it out and see if any of it can help you!
Sorry for multiple posts! Sarah Theresa Purcell is the name you are after. I have her death certificate. Died in Wellington october 1941 at the age of 82. Her parents first names are not listed but father's occupation is a farmer. She was born in Kilkenny, married in dublin. There are no names of children, only ages at the time of her death. 4 boys 57, 51, 48 and 46. 4 girls 56, 54, 44, and 41. I'll read through the south african letters and see what I can find about the children you have asked after.
4 of the children were born in Mhow, India, including Helen and Frances, known as Fanny, and 4 were born in the UK. I have a lovely photo of Sarah with all if the children from about 1900. The information I have is not as good as I'd hoped, mainly discusses descendents of Fanny and Percy Walker. Let me know if you are interested and I'll scan the photos and letters I have. Always keen to share our history and make new connections.
Murray Ginnane has some useful information including a copy of the Newman School 1948 reunion booklet. It lists 4 Henry children attending but has only mentioned to me Philip, Mary (Molly) and Kathleen. Murray has said that the youngest 4 were born in Norfolk, England.
