Thomas BEGLEY died. Thomas married Eliza Agnes FITZGERALD on 11 Sep 1873.

Thomas was from Claremorris, Co. Mayo.

Eliza Agnes FITZGERALD [Parents] was born in probably Charlestown, Co. Mayo. Eliza married Thomas BEGLEY on 11 Sep 1873.


Michael FITZGERALD [Parents] was born about 1852 in probably Charlestown, Co. Mayo. He died in probably Dublin. Michael married Agnes FLANNERY on 27 Apr 1899 in St. Mary's Church, Haddington Road, Dublin.

Michael moved from Charlestown to Dublin in 1887 and became a wine merchant and rectifying distiller, setting up his own company named Fitzgerald & Co. In 1893, two years after his father's death, his stepmother, Bridget, sold the Charlestown shop and she, along with her son (i.e., Michael's half brother), Martin, moved to Dublin. Martin joined Michael in the running of the business and they relocated Fitzgerald & Co. to Middle Abbey St. (from where we do not know) and the business flourished, despite the premises being badly damaged during the 1916 Rising.

In 1903 Fitzgerald & Co. bought the John P. Flannery store from Michael's widowed mother-in-law, Sarah. However, the purchase was to lead to a court case in 1912 (details unknown), which appears to have caused a split in the family. Michael had resigned from the company in 1908 and at some point had become proprietor of Flannerys shop in Ballaghaderreen, although he contined to live on Lansdowne Road in Dublin.

Note that in 1898 Ballaghaderreen was transferred from Co. Mayo to Co. Roscommon so it is important for researchers to check both counties for information.

Agnes FLANNERY [Parents] was born about 1876 in Co. Mayo. She died in 1904 in probably Dublin. Agnes married Michael FITZGERALD on 27 Apr 1899 in St. Mary's Church, Haddington Road, Dublin.

Joseph Gerald FITZGERALD [Parents] was born in 1904 in Dublin. He died on 12 Aug 1943 in Sicily. He was buried in Catania War Cemetery, Sicily. Joseph married Kathleen 'UNKNOWN'.
