  1. Hi Sue,

    You’ve a question mark over the birth year of Thomas Stonham

    It appears that Thomas Stonham was in Dublin on the night of the 2nd of April 1911 (census night), he was registered as having stayed at 21 Hatch Street, Dublin in the home of Sir William Thornley Stoker a surgeon of note (Check Wikipedia for reference to Sir William) Sir William was a brother of Bram Stoker who wrote Dracula.

    The entry is as follows

    Stonham Tho?ss, aged 52, Male, Visitor, C of E, England Keut, Surgeon? read and write, married.

    This gives a date of birth 1859

    How do I know this – good question

    The 1911 census has just gone on line and I’ve traced my granny (Mary Gilmore) who worked there as a house maid.

    18 Chapel Street Sligo Ireland.

  2. Hi Sue,
    Your death date for Thomas George Stonham is incorrect. He was the editor of the B.H.J., along with Giles Forward Goldsbrough, at the time of Clarke’s Memorial featured in the April 1932 Journal. Haven’t been able to find his death date yet.
    All the best,
