Note
BIOGRAPHY: Born in Ireland. Couldn’t write - made his mark on wedding and birth certificates. Was originally a carter in an ironworks in Airdrie. Appears in the 1881 census at 48 Bell Street, new Monkland, Lanark as a lodger. His place of birth is given as Partick, Lanark (possibly because of discrimination against Irish?) Appears in the 1891 census with his wife, Sarah, and daughters Mary (7), Sarah (6), Elizabeth (4), Margaret (2). Place of birth given as Ireland. Appears in the 1901 census living at 38 Dewars Row, Kelty together with his wife and 5 children - Sarah (16, brickwork worker), Lizzie (14, pithead worker), Maggie (12, scholar), William (9, scholar) and John (6, scholar). Place of birth given as Ireland. BIOGRAPHY: The following details of the Redmond surname were found at http://www.goireland.com/genealogy/. Redmond is a name of Norman origin: the first in Ireland was Alexander Raymond, who was of the same stock as Raymond le Gros, one of the best known of the Anglo-Norman invaders. The name soon became Redmond. The family obtained considerable grants of land in Co. Wexford, and throughout the 780 years since they settled in Ireland they have always been associated with that county and prominent in its affairs. The Ortelius map marks them as a sept in the barony of Forth, Co. Wexford. They are found on the Irish side in the seventeenth century, several of the name being attainted after 1690. Two were Wexford rebels in 1798: Rev. John Redmond and Michael Redmond; and they four Redmonds, notably Chevalier Gabriel Redmond (1713-1789), who served with distinction on the Continent with the Irish Brigade were all of Wexford families. In the present century John Edward Redmond (1855-12918), a Co. Wexford landlord, was leader of the Irish Party in the British House of Commons up to its extinction on the rise of Sinn Fein, and his brother, William Redmond (1861-1917)_, killed in the first Great War, was also a leading member of that party. At the present time the Redmonds are almost entirely concentrated in the three eastern counties of Wexford, Wicklow and Dublin. "The Composition Book of Connacht" (1585) includes the name MacRedmond among the leading men of Co. Mayo. These MacRedmonds were also of Norman stock but had no connection with the Redmonds of Wexford, MacRedmond being the name assumed by a branch of the great family of Burke. The majority have reverted to the surname Burke. DEATH: Informant was his son, William. Both parents are listed as deceased.
