1) I suspect Charlotte Cronin's second name should read Amyatt [not Amyott] which was her mother's maiden name..
2) Susan Drury (Edward Cronin's first wife was a sister of Mary Drury who married John G Bellett in 1827. Their father, Vice-Admiral William O'Brien Drury (c.1754, Cork, - 1811, India, see R. Ryan, 'Biographia Hibernica' vol 2, [Dublin 1821]), was married (1783) to Letitia Preston Vallancey (a daughter of General Charles Vallancey, [1726-1812] military surveyor and antiquary, see art by Norman Vance in ODNB). Their brother Dr Vallancey Drury wrote an obituary for Edward Cronin in 'The Homoeopathic World' vol 17 [March 1, 1882].
3) In addition to his daughter Charlotte, Edward Cronin had two sons (by his second marriage) Eugene (a homoeopathic doctor living in Clapham) and Augustus (a surgeon dentist in the London Homoeopathic Hospital.) Timothy Stunt

1 - Changed, thx.
2 - Great, will add that!
3 - Yep, and from what I see on Ancestry, maybe another son Charles Edward, three daughters Eugene Francis, Francis Emma, and Susan Clementina. Also from first marriage, one daughter, Mary Ann.

Noticed that a son of J H Lowe married a descendant of J G Deck, so can join that in too!!

Timothy, what is the evidence for Susan, the first wife of E.C. being a sister of Mary Drury - that is the one thing on here I can't find any other evidence for right now? thanks.

Emily Frances Kingscote, wife of John Kennaway, was a sister of R F Kingscote of Brethren fame .. which is great to have another link, but going to be a struggle to fit on my tree without making it look ugly!

Yesterday and today's addictions were to link in Henry Young, and then William Henry Soltau. 

In 1814, St Mary’s Church, Lewisham, Harriet Jenner (1791-1848) married John Henry Eccles (1784-1841).  Their eldest daughter Catherine Anne Eccles (1815-75) married (in 1838) Henry Young (1803-81), the third son of Sir Samuel Young (1776-1826) and his wife Emily (née Baring).  Their daughter Emily Baring Young (1842-1914) was born in Plymouth before her parents emigrated to New Zealand where (in 1865) she (Emily) married John Feild Deck (1835-1929).  A younger sister of Catherine Young was Theresa Eccles (1819-?) who married George McAdam (1810-78), a dentist in Hereford.  She was thus a sister-in-law of Christopher McAdam (1807-?).  The McAdam brothers were grandsons of John Loudon McAdam (1756-1836), the inventor of the roadmaking process McAdamization which has given us the word tarmac.  Christopher McAdam’s wife was Eleanor Trelawny (1798-1852) whose father died when she was a girl and who lived in the Newton household for some years before her marriage in 1837. A younger brother of Catherine Young was John Henry Eccles [II](1817-1902) who married Millicent [Millie] Elizabeth Mary Soltau (1818-c.1881), a younger sister of Henry William Soltau (1805-75).

Much of the Henry and Catherine Young story has been chronicled by Stuart Braga in All His Benefits: The Young and Deck Families in Australia (Australia: Privately printed 2013) a copy of which I passed on to the CBA in Manchester a few years ago.  For Catherine’s mother who ran a school in Plymouth where Leonard Strong’s daughters were pupils while he was in British Guyana, see my Elusive Quest p.194 and David Rawson, ‘Barton Hall, Hereford: A History’ in Brethren Historical Journal vii (2011) pp.54-55.

I would appreciate assistance in the Kennaway Line. I have Emily Frances Kennaway, born 16 Dec 1833 (India, Select Births and Baptisms, 1786-1947) in Benares, Bengal, India to William Richard & Eliza (Rickets) Kennaway. In 1861 England Census she is living with Eugene's family (pre-marriage), born Benares, India. Marriage records to Eugene list her father as William Kennaway. William Richard (Listed in The Peerage) was another son of Sir John 1st Bar. & Charlotte (Amyatt) Kennaway and brother to Frances (Kennaway) Cronin.
