Seeking information for Thomas Arthur King, spouse Letitia Ann Boyd
Posted by: Barry King (ID *****7721) Date: May 20, 2012 at 23:26:57

I am interested in any documented information concerning my great great grandparents, Thomas Arthur King and Letitia Ann Boyd. Any information or documents pertaining ot them, their ancestors and siblings would be if interest.

Here are details as best as I can provide:

Thomas Arthur King
Born 20 Apr 1815 in Rockcorry, Co. Monaghan, Ireland

Married supposedly in or around Rockcorry, Co. Monaghan, Ireland to

Letitia Ann Boyd
Born 15 Jun 1815 in Ireland

Letitia Ann Boyd was the daughter of Thomas Boyd and Margaret Traynor. I realize that Traynor may be some spelling variant. Thomas Boyd was apparently a soldier present in the final onslaught against Napolean in the offensive lead by Blucher et al in the Battle of Waterloo. A related assertion is that Latitia was born in Paris France. I tend to think this is a twisted fact. I think she was born in Ireland and the little note on her Canadian death certfiicate has been misrecollected over the years.

I believe Thomas A left Ireland around 1847 as family lore asserts a son was born mid-Atlantic March 1847, an assertion supported by census records.

There were as many as six children listed in Canadian census documents as born in Ireland. The only more specific detail is that one of the children is listed as born in Tipperary. Family lore lists Clare as a common place of origin.
