The others will probably need to be hand-sorted from the Irish Civil Registration page which doesn't index middle-names and often misses out the mother's birth name.

Samuel Thomas must have lived elsewhere at the time. The birthday clipping gives 13 children with 10 surviving.

Emigration

No passenger log has been found; however a birthday clipping for Mary Jane says they arrived in New Zealand in 1904.[1]

Time in New Zealand

They lived at Hikutaia, Thames Valley. (Appears on many records). They farmed there until retiring to Onehunga, Auckland in about 1917.[1]

As of 1945 there were had 13 children (10 still living), 56 grandchildren, 54 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. 16 of her grandsons served in the Second World War.[1]

Spelling of name

Lowry is used on the marriage record, 1901 census, and all NZ records.

Lowery is used on the FS transcription of Civil Registration for the three children.

For consistency I've decided to use Lowry for the LNAB on Wikitree.
