Aileen Gerrighty was the posthumous daughter of Charles Gerrighty, who drowned off Howick Beach in January 1864. His father, Thomas, was a Fencible and the family arrived in Howick in 1847. There is a grave with a headstone in All Saints Churchyard in Howick for Mary Ann Childerhouse and other members of her family, but no marked grave for Charles. Thomas and his wife disappeared about nine months after arriving in Howick.

Charles and Mary Ann's eldest child was my great grandfather, also Charles. He died as the result of a carting accident in Thames, in the mid-1890s. There was another daughter.

There is a file on the family in the Howick Historical Village library

My grandmother was Phoebe Gerrighty, Thomas' youngest daughter. She was about 3 years old when her father died. Of that generation, only the three daughters lived. There were four boys, three of whom died soon after birth and the eldest, Charles died aged about 7, from diphtheria.

Hope this is a little helpful.

Mary Ann Kane (Childerhouse/Geraghty) is buried Shortland Cemetery, Thames. Died 29 October 1892.

The grave of Thomas and Eliza Gentles is near the gate of All Saints Anglican Church in Howick and has a memorial for Thomas and Sarah Childerhouse. I believe this is the only headstone on the older family graves at Howick.

Mary Ann Childerhouse (daughter of Fencible Thomas and Sarah Childerhouse) was not a cousin to the Geraghty family.

Mary Ann Childerhouse married Charles Geraghty ( son of Fencible Thomas Geraghty and Jane Newell) 1860.

Charles Geraghty's cousin Mary Isabella (Moss) Morse, the daughter of Fencible James Morse and Isabella Newell married John Childerhouse (son of Thomas and Sarah Childerhouse and brother of Mary Ann) in 1864.

Please correct the information that Mary Ann Childerhouse / Geraghty was a cousin to 'this Childerhouse family' as she was the youngest daughter.
