OLD AGE PENSION CLAIMS: Bobby Forrest (Ireland)
Robert Forrest (born 1842) is my great great grand-uncle and my namesake. George
Forrest (junior) married Ann Jane Mullan in Drumachose Church of Ireland in Limavady in
1866 and her parents were Michael and Sarah Mullan and she was born in Ballyrashane. I
had few details and found the Ballyrashane CI registers were destroyed too in 1922. I had a
look at Ballyrashane extracts on Film MFGS 55/1 more in hope than anticipation but I found
the following:
Applying for a search in 1916 under her maiden name, Ann Jane McMullan, address
Limavady, she stated that her parents were Michael McMullan and Sarah Elliot of
Ballindreen townland and asked for a search of Ballyrashane register claiming she was born
c.1846. The clerk made a search of the Ballyrashane register and confirmed that all of the
details were correct and he found her baptism in 1846. I had confirmation of another pair of
great, great, great grandparents. These registers were destroyed in 1922.
So if your ancestors were Church of Ireland there is a chance that they may have
asked for a search of the registers between 1908 and 1922 when they were destroyed. Not all parishes have a lot of claimants, e.g. for Aghanloo parish (County Londonderry) only three (3) returns are listed in the abstracts. It would be great if a copy of these six microfilms were available in PRONI in Belfast. Thanks Bobby for your contribution. Other sources of birth date verification used were military discharge papers and baptismal registers from other denominations such as Presbyterian and Roman Catholic. I do not know if these OAP search request forms survive in the National Archives or elsewhere. Any information would be appreciated.
Claimants who relied on the 1841 and/or 1851 census records to provide proof of age,
made application by giving an account of their situation in 1841 and 1851. The claimant
listed name (and often current married name for a female), name of parents and often the
motherÔÇÖs maiden name, address if in a town or townland for country residents, listing parish and county and their age at the date of their OAP claim. The names of brothers and sisters were given and often there was a list of places of residence for either 1841, 1851 or for both.
The form was sent to the Public Record Office of Ireland (PROI, Four Courts) and when
checked by the clerk, notations were added.
Frequently the entire family group was extracted and listed including the parentÔÇÖs
marriage date, absentees on census night and deaths of household members in the previous 10 years. Many of these forms read like an interview with an elderly relative between 1908 and 1922 recalling their life and family moves through periods of famine, change and unrest. I cannot find these records indexed anywhere. Any volunteers near Dublin and the NAI?
