Peter Dooley born abt 1874
I am researching the Dooley family but, sadly, I do not know what part of Ireland they hailed from. I have a grandfather, Peter Dooley, born abt 1874, his brother, Patrick, 1875 and a sister Catherine, 1881. There may be more siblings, but that is not known. Peter and Patrick both went to England - Peter around 1890 - to Ashton U Lyne (Stalybridge), where he lodged with the Byrne family. He married Mary Anne Concannon in 1893 in Hemsworth West Yorks and had 8 children: Lawrence (perhaps) in 1895 who didn't survive; Peter 1897; Mary Anne 1899; Thomas, 1901, maria ? John Lawrence 1903, Margaret ? Bernard 1907; Kathleen 1910. Peter jnr was in Royal Engineers in WW1 and was gassed in France. He died in Edlington, S yorks in 1920. (john) Lawrence was editor of several substantial newspapers, served the Comintern in Prague, was well-known in literary and political circles, married Anne Kelly in 1945 and died in 1958, during a political debate in Ilford, Essez.

Peter snr's brother, Patrick followed to England circa 1898, married Ethel (mcHugh?) in 1902, Died in 1950 - all in Hemsworth. If any of this rings a bell with any other researchers, and if anyone knows where these brothers came from, please advise. Thank you
