Good morning,

Please could you help me find my GGGrandmother's Irish roots? Bridget Cocklin (name on marriage certificate) married George Styles in Whitechapel in 1882. I am trying to find her birth date And place of birth And whether this is her Maiden name or a 1st marriage name etc. Seems to be variations in the spelling. Many thanks for all your help.

Best regards,

Jill

I believe that Bridget Coughlan (name written as Cocklin on marriage certificate) who married George Styles in Whitechapel in 1882 was my great grandmother. She was born in Skibbereen, County Cork in 1854 and died in Kensington London in 1929. She had three children (James, George and Bridget). George (also known as Michael in later life) was my maternal grandfather. He was born in London (probably in 1885) and died in Hastings, England in 1969.

Dear Paul,

If the son of Bridget Coughlan was named James Joseph Jessie Styles, Bridget Is my great great greatgrandmother.

 Best regards

Dear Gillian,

 

Wow! This is very interesting. I have recently been doing some research into the Irish side of my family. I had always believed that my grandfather, George Michael Styles, was born in Skibbereen, Ireland, but I have found strong evidence (findmypast website) that he was actually born in Whitechapel London in 1885 . I knew that my grandfather, who preferred to be known as Michael or Mick Styles, had a brother James who lived in Putney and died around 1956. He also had a sister, Bridget, who died in 1981 in Oxfordshire.

 

I believe that we must be related and that JJ Styles (born in London in 1883) was my great uncle. My mother told me that when James died in 1956 there was a family rift because my grandfather, a devout catholic, refused to go to the funeral because James was being cremated.

 

To summarise, this is what I have found out so far:

 

1854 Bridget Coughlan born Skibbereen 1854

1882 Bridget married James Styles in Whitechapel, London

1883 James Styles (your great grandfather) born in Whitechapel (died 1956)

1885 George Styles (my grandfather) born in London (died 1969)

1892 Bridget Styles  (younger sister) born in London (died 1981)

1929 Bridget (Coughlan) Styles died in Kensington, London

 

My grandfather fought with the Royal irish Regiment in WW1 and was prsisoner of war in Germany. I believe that his brother, James, also fought in the war. I possess an old photo from 1919 that could be him.

 

It would be great to get in touch so we can exchange more family information.

 

Best regards,

 

Paul

 

 

Dear Paul,

James and Edith Styles moved into 114a Putney Highstreet with their 5 children (Fred, Constance, George, Lesley and Joan) just before  WW2. 'Connie' my grandmother, lived there until she died in December 2004.

Best regards,

Gillian
