  • Notes 
    • In the 1901 Census for Crutt, Castlecomer there is a John Whelan Head aged 68, a Brother Andrew Whelan aged 58 and Richard Whelan Son [of the Head] aged 16. Angela thinks it possible that this family might be the right one as we have on one other occasion seen a census entry as a son or daughter but NOT of the head. There was a Richard Phelan in the 1901 Census of Castlecomer: Kilkenny Street, Assistant aged 18, he was an assistant to John Joseph Cantwell who was an unmarried Merchant.

      So Angela thinks that he may have been our Richard Whelan and that there was a mistake in recording his surname at his wedding and that he was wrongly recorded in the Crutt 1901 Census as the son of the Head John Whelan rather than son of Andrew Whelan, brother of the Head. This is supported by memories of those currently alive.
