Henry Dillon Boylan

Postby Fiona Hughes » Wed May 13, 2020 1:56 pm

I have hit a brick wall with my research on Henry Dillon Boylan, I can find no record of his birth around 1816 in Dublin. On the 20th June 1846 he married Henrietta Jane Dun in Paris, I can find no record of his travel to France. Then in the Census records he shows up 1851 at 27 Camden Hill Road, Kensington - 1871 at Shawpark House, Selkirk, Scotland which was his wife family home. I can find no record in the 1861 or 1881 cencus. Then in 1885 his death certificate states he lived at Manor Villas, Mortlake, Richmond-Upon-Thames.

Any help on filling in the gaps would be greatly appreciated.

There's an 1846 marriage announcement in an Irish newspaper which states Henry is "the son of the late John Boylan, Esq, of Johnstown House, County Meath". The father died in Dec 1843.

The 1846 marriage record includes a witness named Richard Dillon Boylan. I presume he is Henry's brother. In the Dublin Evening Post (16 April 1836):
"Court of Chancery - the following gentlemen were called to the bar: Richard Dillon Boylan, Esq, second son of John Boylan of Baggot Street, in the city of Dublin, Esq"

Other newspaper announcements at the time regard two daughters of John Boylan, Esq:
Harriet (her marriage) and Laura (her death, she was John's youngest daughter).

There was a 3rd son: John Dillon Boylan who died (age 24) at Churchtown in 1832.

Also, FMP has this record with image, which indicates Henry resigned on 9 Sept 1869.

He is in Kelly's 1882 London Directory at 27 Pembroke Road, Kensington, noted as 'Pillar Letter Box'.

The families either side are Montgomery (26) and Pollock (28)

In the 1881 census Catherina Montgomery is at 25, 26 is unoccupied, Fanny Harrison & family are at 27, and the Pollocks are at 28.

ADDED: He's also on the 1880-1882 Electoral Rolls at 27 Pembroke Gardens

Just re-checked the 1881 census and the address was Pembroke Gardens, not Road - sorry

I note one of Henry's daughters (Ada Augusta Harriet) died in France in 1878. Could the Boylan family have been abroad when the 1881 census was taken?

John Boylan's brief obit in Drogheda Conservative Journal (16 December 1843).
Died in North Wales. Aged 72 years. Formerly of Grafton Street. He was a paper stainer and decorator.
Latterly of Johnstown House, County Meath.

He must be the brother of Patrick Boylan, who had the same occupation, and was affiliated with Grafton Street, as well. If so, their father was Michael Boylan, who operated a very successful wallpaper business in Dublin.

Possible fourth son of John Boylan (and brother of Henry, Richard, and John):

Michael Boylan (also known as Dillon Michael Boylan). He died in London in 1838. He was affiliated to the same places as the above, and was a Commission Agent.

Many thanks

Sorry, all I know is the FMP record with image for his HAC attestation in 1855. Do you have a FMP subscription in order to view the image? He's one of a handful of men mentioned on a 1 page sheet. It's not a full service record.
