The Patrick Durnin I'm looking for was born in 1858, so he's a generation later than yours. Mine was actually born in Liverpool, but the family was from Drogheda, Louth, Ireland and returned there in time for Patrick to be enrolled in the Presentation School (not sure what that is -- something to do with church) at age 3.
