Hi Geraldine,

Paupers' graves records are a bit hit and miss. It depends on who was doing the burying (there were some lovely people who donated sites for paupers graves and kept meticulous records), and where it was.

The Cork Archives are a good start, as they hold records for all cemetaries and it may be worth your while dropping them an e-mail with the information you have to see if they can point you at some local records.

Good luck!
Cornelia

Have checked out John Joseph Webb. Born in Dublin 1874. So, no connection there.
E-mailed Cork Archives-but they say it could be several weeks before they can get back to me.

Does anybody know if George Webb (Butler to Bishop of Cloyne-1901), living at Spy Hill, Queenstown,Cork died while in the Bishop's employ? What Cork cemetery would he likely be buried in?
Also, would the Bishop have had another residence? Have searched St. Joseph's Cemetery, but cannot find any records.
Many thanks for any information on this elusive ancestor.
Geraldine.

Hello Geraldine, 

Welcome back! Were you able to find out more via the Cork Archives? 

Government (civil) registration of births in Ireland began in 1864, and the full records reside in General Register Office (GRO). Have you been in touch with GRO about this yet? 

For graveyard records in and around Cork, my advice is to contact the Cork Archives again. Cork Past and Present is another website that might have some helpful information about the bishop or your ancestor. 

I hope this helps, and let us know if there's anything else you need! 

Melin

Hello, Yes I did indeed find out more but not through  Cork Archives.
It seems that after all the searching I have been chasing the wrong man.! Now, family history told me that George Webb (born Meath) was butler in south of Ireland. Now, I am finding that it was John Webb brother of George who was butler to Bishop of Cloyne. It looks that George went to America. John Webb appears in 1901 Census-Spy Hill-Cobh-Cork. So, I thought they had got his first name wrong but no I had it wrong. Now, John Joseph Webb appears in 1911 Census  as butler to a doctor in St. Stephen,s Green,Dublin. Born in Meath so I am thinking this is same man. Irish Genealogy records a John Webb-living in Iveagh Buildings, who dies in 1923. He was unmarrried and died of cancer in South Dublin Union. The ages fit. I have asked for photocopy of death cert. which I hope can identify him.Hopefully, I have got it right this time.!
After that, I will begin to search for George and his brother Peter who went to America. They are thought to have gone to Boston and soon after they arrived one of them drowned while swimming. Which one I don,t know. The other one lost touch with home. 
Will let you know when I get copy of cert.
Geraldine.

Hi Geraldine, 

Thanks so much for your update! It does seem like you have found the right person, and hopefully you will receive the requested paperwork soon. It would be wonderful if this can identify him. :) 

Fingers crossed, and hoping for good news, 

Melin

Hi again,
I have had a marvellous break-through.! My two grand-uncles who went to America emigrated in 1880 and  1882 respectively. Peter went first and then James.Both sailed  from Liverpool to New York.

On my other elusive relative my 2xtimes great-uncle George (their brother) no news. The photocopy of death cert. gave no more information than I had.!
Would this be possible.? His name was George but as butler to Bishop  of Cloyne maybe he had to change to John as George is Church of Ireland name.?

Geraldine.
