Margaret Hanratty was born in Dublin in 1834 and Bernard was born 1840 Dublin. I am just back from Adelaide Australia where I met up with one of Margarets descendants Frederick Flavel.It was the first time in 150 yrs that the two sides of the family had met.While I was there we attended a meeting of the Flavel F H S. I thanked their family for their ancestors taking Margaret Hanratty into thier family through marriage in 1852. If she hadn t been made a member of thier family who knows what would have happend to a young 15 yr old in Australia at that time!!.
Yes I do believe flighty behaviour does run in families!! giggle!!.
