Thank you for the information and the link to the web page with the amusing section on Joseph Candy [ my grandfather's brother].
This is what I know so far:

James Candy [ ? – approx 1924] was Station master Derry. Probably his father came over from Somerset to work building the Irish railway system ].
James's Wife – name and maiden name unknown

James’s 9 Children [probably born in Derry]
Joseph [ engineer]
Molly [ seems to have died in flu epidemic approx 1918 nursing the family]
Dorothy [ teacher, never married]
Thomas [ Radiologist, my grandfather, moved to Newport Wales, died 1930 ]
Madeleine [ teacher, moved to India, died having twins]
Adelaide [ teacher, not married]
Gertrude [ teacher, one child]
James [ Doctor GP, no male children]
Norbert [died age 12]

I would be very grateful if your father knows anything about this Candy family – especially any years of birth, death, James Candy’s wife’s name etc etc – anything is interesting.
Thanks again,
Jonathan Candy.
