Robert Bromston

by Patricia O'Connor
(Ireland)

Do not know if this has anything to do with the above. However here goes.


I was checking on 1911 census Ireland and discovered a Sarah Bromston and her son Robert aged 3 were visiting by Great grandparents house during census.

Tried googling name and came up with above and very little else regarding Bromston name.

Bramston.
by: Drew@ 96 degrees.

Young Robert's age fits into here well too. I believe he was born in 1909. Fits in OK.

Bromstons.
by: Drew out-of-ice.

It would / could be likely that Sarah Bromston was an Aunt. County Sligo definitely fits into 'our' Robert.BT. Daniell.

Dear Patricia

Thanks very much for you message and for getting in touch.

I have checked the Llangefni Cemetry where some of the Plas Pencraig family is buried and have not found Robert Bramston's grave.

However, if you scan to the next message down you'll see that Andrew Weare (Alaska formerly Llangefni Lad) has discovered that Robert Bromston passed his final years in Bury St Edmunds.

Check out Andrew's Gleanings as well, as he offers specific guidance there.

There appears to be a link between his family and the prominent Anglesey families. Interestingly, there is a Thesiger Daniell grave in Llanedwen Church in Brynsiencyn, which is the family church of the Paget Family (Marquess of Anglesey).

One of these fine evenings I'll pop across there and have a good scout about just in case his body was returned here to be interred.

Apart from Llangefni Cemetry, I cannot think where else on Anglesey he might have been buried.

Burial place of Brigadier.
by: Drew.

Again, I am not too certain..but Bgdr. Robert.B.T.Daniell, DSO* died aged "95' in Bury St.Edmunds, Suffolk. Whether he is buried there, I can't say for definite certain, but it gives a fine lead.

Hi Andrew

It goes to prove that if you search far and deep enough you'll inevitable encounter a scoundrel or priest - or both at the same time.

Interesting if ... isn't it.

Warmest regards

Validating names, variants.
by: Drew

"Harry" Daniell was indeed the same Henry Whiteman Thesiger Daniell and his wife was by full name, Maud Edith Phibbs:- parents of the esteemed Brigadier, Robert. B.T.Daniell. who married ( full name ) Betty Mai Shiell Priestman.

And now the 'Nutty Bit'. The name "Edith" seen as a middle name above, could point to the, or a, connection to the ('Edith') Phibbs family of Sligo and adjoining County.

If this is the case (to be verified) then Hey Presto ! I will find myself CONNECTED by the proverbial dots of genealogy, to these people!

To be perfectly clear, I emphasise "connected" and not 'related' directly. Finding that some dots join up interestingly is just so-so in genealogy. Not to trigger off grandiosities and a place in the queue giving exact alignment to your inheriting the throne!

The theory thus far is. My forebear Captain Peter Lambert.JP. 1789 to 1844 had a brother Charles whose daughter Nannie by her marriage had 'Phibbs' In-Laws (to be verified)

So no cigars yet and no 'bragging rights OK.

More later as research progresses in its relentless and fun fun fun way!

Drew.

Robert Bromston Thesiger Daniell
by: Wil

Dear Patricia

Thanks for getting in contact. I'll direct the twins to your message.

In one of his emails Andrew points to a connection between Anglesey and Ireland. Not only because of the position of the main Ireland to London train and A5 road, but because Anglesey would have been an appropriate place for ladies of the Irish gentry inappropriately 'indisposed' to be sent for the latter stages of their confinement.

Bob Daniell, as he was known locally, used to stay at Dafarn Newydd, which was an estate farm outside the town of Llangefni. The estate owners, the Daniells at that time, had a house attached to the farm for Summer visitors.

He was regarded with respect locally, probably because of his social rank, and I am uncertain where he's buried, although some of his family rest in the local cemetry.

I can't imagine that being one of the first people into Belsen would have left his psyche unmarked.

If you find out any more, then let me know and I'll pass it on to our expert Twins.

May I beg a copy of the details of the Census report, please.

Warmest regards

Wil
