Hello there, I've just registered for this site at the recommendation of Mike Noble who contacted me via Ancestry.com.
I'm a direct descendant of Abner Noble and Letitia Bothwell, who came from County Cavan and married in Killeshandra Parish in 1831. There appears to be some confusion about whether it is Abner or Abnor and whether Abner and Letitia are the same Abnor and Elicia Noble in the 1841 Irish Census for Drumbullion. I am taking the punt that they are the same people.
In the 1841 census they have listed Abnor/Abner as a farmer of 30 years of age and his wife Elicia as the same age. They have children, Fredrick (9) Alexander (7), George (4), Margaret (3) and Anne (11 months). Surprisingly they have also included in the census two people who were deceased at the time, namely Margaret Noble (mother) who died in 1834 at age 70 and Mary Campbell (Visitor) who died in 1836 at age 80. I believe that Margaret Noble's maiden name was Campbell so this Mary Campbell could well have been her sister.
Abner and Letitia had another two daughters born after the 1841 census, Hannah (1842) and Maria (1843). Maria is my great grandmother. She left Ireland to follow William Wood, a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary and who had resigned to migrate to Australia.
I would very much like to find out more about Abner and Letitia, particularly where they died and are buried.
Any information is welcome. Many thanks, Maureen
