The younger girl on the nannie’s lap would have been Mary Josephine(Ena) who died about 13 or 14 at boarding school. The other sister is most likely Myra who later became Mrs Murray-Hayden.

  1. Hi Kathleen,

    My Aunt Rachael sent me this link. I’m the grandson William (Billy) and Maureen Fanning (nee Kelly) mentioned in your blog. My dad Joseph, was the only son, I’m the also an only boy and now my son is also an only boy. So he is the last Fanning in the line back to William and Joseph. He is Aidan Joseph William Fanning. We are now living in Melbourne, VIC.

    I grew up in Dublin and remember visiting the house the greystones and the Hedigan’s!

    1. Hi Nigel,
      Great to hear from you. Quite a coincidence that you are living in Melbourne which is where I was born and grew up. You are a long way from Dublin!

      My gggrandfather emigrated to Victoria in 1841 from Thurles and lived just north of Melbourne at Bulla. His descendants still live at Sunnyside.
      He was a first cousin of your great great grandfather Billy Fanning of Clondoty.
      Your aunt Rachel also sent me some photos which I have included.
      regards Kathleen
