Greetings and Best Wishes for the new Year from the North of Ireland.
I doubt if there is any connection between our respective Busby families, but as part of my ongoing research into the Busby's in Ireland I shall record and keep the information you have supplied.
At this point in your research, do you know why Joseph was in Ireland?
Was there a military connection?
Was there a connection with his everyday work? (Customs Officer, Coast
Guard, The Police, these are just three professions where men and their families moved about within Great Britain and Ireland.
Was there a business connection?
Was there a family connection?
I have been trawling the official birth from 1864, marriage from 1845 and death from 1864 indexes of Ireland for the name of Busby. Thankfully the name is not common, and although my task is slow I have established that the name of Busby appears in the cities of Cork, Dublin, and Belfast. The name
also appears in the Counties of Monaghan, Tyrone, Armagh, Antrim and Down.
I have only one person in my own Busby research who remains a mystery to me and that is a George Busby. He erected the headstone on his mothers grave. She was Susanna Busby, died 19th January 1863 at the age of 72. I have no
father's name, nothing but this.
I am sorry I cannot be of more assistance to you, but keep digging and I am sure you can get over, under or around this current wall.
All the best.
