Andrew and Mary Hall of Moynalty, Co. Meath

Adelaide Anne Courtenay, baptised 10th August 1831, born at 47 Moore Street, was the daughter of Frederick Courtenay and Mary Tuty.   Adelaide Anne's sister was Emily Courtenay who married John Pennefather - Emily Courtenay and John Pennefather of Dublin were our great-great great grandparents.

Adelaide Anne Courtenay married a commercial clerk, George Hall, who was the son of Andrew Hall, on 12th October 1851.  John Pennefather and Henry Reynolds witnessed the marriage in the Black Church.  Adelaide Anne's sister, Mary Courtenay, married Herbert Gilman Moore in the same church on the same day.

George Hall had been born to policeman Andrew Hall in Bray, Co.Wicklow in about 1830.   The only record I can uncover for an Andrew Hall is the Wicklow-born Andrew Hall who enlisted in the Royal Irish Constabulary aged 19 in 1824.   His R.I.C. records, which I consulted in the National Archives, show that he married a Wicklow-born woman in 1830, and had been recommended to the Constabulary by William St.Clair who was a magistrate living at Emma Vale, Arklow.
George Hall was appointed to Meath and Wicklow on 1st May 1824 and was promoted to constable on 1st August 1827.  His records show that he was pensioned off in July 1866.
Andrew Hall of the R.I.C. was later stationed in Moynalty, Co. Meath with his wife, Mary, living in Westland Cottage, where the couple had a son, Andrew Hall Jr., on 8th July 1842.

Constable Andrew Hall was stationed in Moynalty, Meath - he featured from 1839 till 1859 in the Irish Petty Sessions Court Registers.  He might be the Andrew Hall  (1805 - 1868) who died aged 63 in 1868 and whose death was registered in the Kells Civil Registration district.
Mary, widow of the late Andrew Hall of Moynalty, Co. Meath, died aged 65 at 52 Bolton Street, Dublin, on 10th February 1870 - this from both the 'Freeman's Journal' and the 'Dundalk Democrat and People's Journal' of 12th February 1870.

William Hall, son of policeman Andrew Hall:

The brother of George Hall of Middle Mountjoy Street was William Hall of the Inland Revenue, who had also been born in Wicklow in about 1837, and who married Emmaletta White in Clogheen in 1871.
The British Civil Service Proof of Age Archives, viewable on Find My Past,  record the fact that, in 1855, William Hall produced proof that he had been born on 6th June 1836 to policeman Andrew Hall and his wife, Mary, and had been baptised in Moynalty Church 10 days later.

Emma/Emmaletta White was the daughter of schoolteacher James White of Knocklofty. She married William Hall in Tullamellan Parish Church in Clogheen, Co. Tipperary, on 11th July 1871.  William Hall was already living in Palmerston Place, Dublin, and was working as an Inland Revenue officer. His father Andrew Hall had died by this stage; James and George White were the witnesses at the 1871 wedding.

Emma's sister, Anna Delia White of 23 Serpentine Avenue, Sandymount, Co. Dublin, married a ladies' tailor, George Powell Mumford of 19 Northumberland Road, the second son of the tailor George Mumford of Weymouth, England. The wedding took place in St. Mary's, Donnybrook, Co. Dublin, on 17th December 1890 and was witnessed by Richard T. Martin (or Richard S. Martin) and Selina White (1859 - 1894), who might be another of Emma Hall's sisters.   She died of cancer aged only 35 on 9th June 1894, a draper's assistant of Lower Leeson Street; George Powell Mumford of Brighton Ville, Sydney Parade, was the informant, and 'caused her body to be buried'.

William Hall and Emmaletta White had nine children but only four had survived by the time of the 1911 census.  Most of the children had been born in Palmerston Place, which runs from Middle Mountjoy Street where George Hall and Adelaide Anne Courtenay were living at the same time.

W. Hall of 5 Palmerston Place won a pair of lustres in a raffle at Edwards Concert Hall in Dublin in 1874 ('Freeman's Journal', 26th Feb 1874).

Andrew Hall Jr., who had been born in  Moynalty, Co. Meath, to Andrew and Mary Hall on 8th July 1842, applied to the civil service in 1867 and his father, Andrew Hall, provided the proof of baptism.

'The Waterford Mirror and Tramore Visitor' of 4th September 1872 noted the marriage in Ballinakill Church of Andrew Hall, HM Inland Revenue, Carrick-on-Suir, to Eva Boyd, daughter of the late Richard Boyd, Collector HM Revenue of Wicklow.    Eva Boyd's parents, Richard Walsingham Boyd of the Customs, New Ross, Co. Wexford, married Susan, eldest daughter of John Hodges of Waterford, on 5th June 1846 in Waterford. (' Freemans Journal, 9th Jan 1846.)

In 1860, Richard Walsingham Boyd and his wife, Susan, née Hodges, were living in Scotland at Bexley terrace, Pulteneytown, Wick, Caithness.  His place of birth wasn't given, but Susan had been born in 1826 in Waterford.

William Hall also testified that John Hall, father of the applicant William Andrew Hall, had died in about 1867 or 1868.  The local clergyman of Killochonnigan Church, Ballivor, also confirmed that he had indeed baptised the boy who had lived at Ballivor, near Kells, Co. Meath and that the boy's father,  John Hall, had been a gardener.  William Andrew Hall, son of John and Elizabeth, and nephew of William Hall, was applying in 1873 to join the Post Office.

The Lunny Family:
The Lunny family seem to have been friendly with the family of George Hall of 50 Middle Mountjoy Street.  I'm not sure if there was some some of family link, but I'll include them here nonetheless. When George's daughter, Matilda, married William Egan Ussher on 9th April 1890, one of the witnesses was Emilie/Emily Lunny, the daughter of John Lunny and Eliza Scovelle.   Her brother, John Robert Lunny, was present at 16 Cabra Road when Adelaide Ann Hall, daughter of George Hall and Adelaide Anne Courtenay, died in 1943.

John Lunny, housekeeper at the Registry of Deeds, with an address at 5 Henrietta Street, son of the merchant James Lunny, married Eliza Schovell, daughter of a gardener, John Schovell of Manor House, Dundrum. The couple married in St. Michan's on 16th May 1861- one of the witnesses was a John Stephens, while the second one was more or less illegible.

John Lunny applied to join the  Registry Office as part of the British Civil Service, and the details are published online via Find My Past -  he gave his address as at the rere of Charlemont House, 22 Rutland Square and stated he had been born in Ballibay, Monaghan on 1st May 1822 to James Lunny, farmer of Ballybay and had been schooled in Mullaghglass.  His most recent job had been with Thomas Drury, warehouseman, Merchants Quay.  He had left to work for the 1851 census, had been with register Office since;  in 1878, when he made the latest application, he must have been interested in a different position in the Registry Office.

Emily Jane Lunny was born to John Lunny and Eliza Schovell at 5 Henrietta Street on 26th December 1894;  her brother,  John Robert Lunny was born on 24th April 1868.  Sisters were Frances or Fanny Lunny and Caroline Louisa Lunny.
Caroline Louisa Lunny  married William John Strickland  on 2nd December 1892, while Fanny married William Norton.  Emily Lunny married David Orr on 26th December 1894.  Her brother, John Robert Lunny, died on 10th May 1954 at 43 Connaught Street;  a druggist, he had never married.  Edith C. Strickland was present.
