Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – 58 Lothian Street North Melbourne

Yesterday, in my 52 Ancestors post, I wrote about my great grandfather Henry Palmer Marr, and the home where the Marr family lived, and where my grandmother grew up, at 58 Lothian Street North Melbourne.

For this week’s Trove Tuesday post, I am sharing articles I found mentioning this address.

The first article was the death notice for Martin Ryan in 1890.

The next article was the death notice for Martin’s mother Bridget.

This shows that the Ryan family were living at this address before my great grandparents.

The next article I found was In Memoriam notices for Henry and Mary’s daughter Mary.

Henry Palmer Marr died in 1944.  His funeral notice shows that his funeral was held at 58 Lothian Street.

I found an article I hadn’t found while searching for new records for my mum, or her mother.  For some reason, this article doesn’t come up when searching for “Edith Marr” or “Jean Marr”.
