Surnames: O'Brien Hanlon
My mother was Roseanne Hanlon, and she was a nurse during the war and lived in London from the late '40s; her sisters were Mamie, Elena, Rita, Agnes (aka Jean), Teresa. There was also a brother, John. They are all listed in the 1911 Census of Ireland as Hanlon, except my mother, who was born in October, 1911, and Teresa (or Theresa), who must have been the youngest. Their mother, Margaret O'Brien, married John Hanlon and they lived with his parents, James and Ellen and Margret's brother, Thomas. They were all born in Kerry, except for James O'Brien, who was born in Waterford. They lived at 25, McGowen's Lane, Tralee.

My sister was born in 1933, in the Birmingham area. I remember visiting Auntie Rita in a little workers'-type cottage in Birmingham. Could Rita have been 'Bridget'? I know Agnes was also known as Jean.

I am in touch with my cousin, who was Sonia Hanlon, and members of her family. The little we know is on Genes Reunited.
