Hello again Sue, Many thanks for your information - it tallies with much of mine.The name was indeed corrupted on the 1891 census etc. which I have been able to access but it was correct in the Church Baptism records when I was looking up the details for my father.My father's sister actually referred to me as Janey Glendellen and my mother used to laugh and say she could not even say her own name.
I had tried Glendelen in the 1901 census and got nowhere and I had tried various spellings but perhaps I did not double up on the "l".Until the current census was released I had no way of finding out about the family after 1891.My grandfather could well have been away in the army at that time. He died in 1931 aged about 57 yrs.He was Harry O'Hara's grandfather as well.My great grandfather was William as well and it gets VERY complicated as each generation had lots of children and gave them all similar names.
I do remember a Kitty O'Hara being mentioned by my auntie Victoria (Henrietta's sister) when I was young.Victoria was born in 1907.I did not know of a Sarah so thanks for that and now I have Henrietta's birthdate.
The wedding would fit in for Harry wouldn't it?If he was born in 1920 he would be about ten at that time.
I bought the 1881 census from the Mormon Church which has proved useful and using the facilities of the Local Interest Centres around I have got back to Thomas Glendenning who hailed from Scotland before 1834 and I have to go into that one a little more closely.His name was sometimes spelled as Glendining.
This has been very interesting for me and many thanks for the "extras" - good luck in your research.I was giving myself a little rest from it but you have renewed my enthusiasm.Have a happy Christmas.Janey Stott
