Looking for information on DENEHY (Inquests)

Hi Tim and welcome to this great site and friendly forum.
From my various searches it seems I cannot offer any more data to what you've found, hopefully other forum users will tho....
Have you tried searching this site's free access PRs database for the Forest area ?
I have and cannot find a single one for the name DENEHY, or indeed some spelling variations of it. Similarly I cannot find any on the GlosBDM site.
What REALLY surprises me is that despite FreeBMD giving very full coverage of the Monmouthsire area, I can only find a couple of entries which may fit your family surname, searching "all types" from 1838 til 1888 !. The nearest match I can find is;

Surname Given Name District Volume Page Transcriber
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Births Sep 1884
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Denahay Thomas Peter Newport M. 11a 194 walj

That said, I do recommend you search this site yourself, in the unlikely case you haven't already. Sadly it only offers hits for precise spelling matches of any surname entered, so have to repeat with the various spellings, "a"s instead of "e"s etc etc.

I've also thoroughly searched FreeBMD for Helen/Ellen Connors/Conners within FreeBMD, clearly a far more common name and there are several within the Merthyr etc area thro the years, but sadly no matches for her marriage to Daniel.

???

I'm not subscribed to Ancestry but using it's free search for Daniel gives some clues which just reflect the Census info you already have, and appear to match those on Family Search aka LDS which you've also used, I presume this is your family;

I also see other events re this family but only those you've already quoted. Unfortunately and as you no doubt know, there are clearly more than one Daniel D'y born in Ireland in the 1850s so tricky to untangle them.

However I've not seen ANY records positively linking them with Monmouthshire, perhaps if you post these records that might help us to help you. Perhaps you mean their relatives who stayed in Mons, for example, perhaps better this route is worth following ?

Similarly I've searched LDS for Ellen Connors, eg this which again I'm sure you've seen;

==============

So, sadly at the mo I cannot offer anything new, altho other forum users may be able to do so as they're more experienced and capable than I am. HOWEVER as it looks like this query isn't particularly linked to the Forest of Dean, plus it's a very busy time of year while preparing for Christmas (the forum's been very quiet indeed recently) then you may have to be patient.

This relatively new Monmouthshire website may be worthwhile your browsing. Thanks entirely to your post I've found this site, so for that THANKS !!

Looking forward to your thoughts re the above findings and my questions, any more info you can give us can only help, regards, J
