You ask for some dates about JOHN ANGUS. He was born I think about 1825 and died around 1911. He married a CATHERINE MORRISON which I would guess around 1845/6/7/8
He had 8 children one ELIZABETH Eleanor ANGUS was my Grandmother, she married Samuel COCHRAN.
JOHN ANGUS was skipper of a 3-masted ship. I don't know the name of the ship (which I'd love to) or where she sailed to etc.
I would dearly love to know what you have found out about HOWTH as you have been researching about it for the last 12 years. As my ANGUS'S were born there (I'm not sure wether JOHN was or moved there, certainly his children were born there.)
He JOHN ANGUS built at least 3 houses in HILLSIDE TERRACE ( now I beleive renamed THONMANBY ?Terrace) 2 of his dauhters, Frances (Fanny) and Olive (Ollie) ran a tea shop there and I remember that, as a very small child I played croquet on their back lawn.
My dad Fred CoCHRAN was born at No 7 St Lawrence Ave or Road, Howth. ( He died a year ago aged 95)
John ANGUS (JUNIOR) known as JACK. was coxswain of HOWTH life boat station for 30 years. the longest serving coxswain they have had (yet no mention of him in their history on the internet), I have written to them to ask why but had no reply.
My Great uncle Dr WILLIAM.F.ANGUS MD. PHYSICIAN / SURGEON lived at COLUMA HOUSE , Abbey Street, HOWTH. but I can't find out anything at all about him. I wonder does COLUMBA house still exist ?? may be you can tell me if your are researching HOWTH.
The ANGUS family also ran a CHANDLERS outfit on West Pier HOWTH, I don't know whether it was JOHN ANGUS senior, or his family, they were also coal merchants.
I there is anything else you have found I would realy love to know about the ANGUS'S or any photos you might find.
If you come across in your research the GILMORE'S they are related to me also. and one has only about 18 months ago moved out of HOWTH, they lived in 1, Hillside Terrace, which was the first house JOHN ANGUS built.
My older sister was born at 1,Hillside Terrace. my parents rented the house from my Great Grandfather John Angus.
Are you living in HOWTH, or near to there, and are you having your research published.?

I look forward to hearing from you again soon.and thanks for your help,
