In Reply to: John A. Frith / Euphemia Wilson, Enniskillen Ireland by Kevin Cullen of 613

Today I found your postings on GenForum with regard to the Frith family in Enninskillen.

It seems that they are connected to the Ball family in Enniskillen. My great grandmother was Eleanor Ball daughter of Francis Ball and Isabella Breen. Eleanor married Thomas Rothwell and emigrated to New Zealand in 1865. In the family possession we have photos of a Miss Ellen Frith and Mrs Anne Cooper and her husband Dr R H Cooper and daughter Lilly Mina Cooper. Mrs Anne Cooper was the daughter of Mr John Henry Frith of Enniskillen. They married on 26 Dec 1862 in Enniskillen. Later Dr Robert Heath Cooper married Susan Frances Fitzhenry and he died in Wexford in 1909.

My aunt told me that Dr George Geils Kenny who was Superintendent of the Waikato Hospital in Hamilton, NZ was a cousin to my great grandmother Eleanor. I have found that Georges grandparents were Margaret Frith and Alexander Rennick and great grandparents might have been Richard Frith and Sophia Noble.

I read in one of your postings that Robert Frith had married Sarah Ball. I have been told that the Frith, Gamble and Ball families are all inter related.

I was wondering if in your searches you had come across any information that would give me the connections of the above Frith names to Francis Ball and his daughter Eleanor Ball. Francis had two sons that I have been able to find -William who married Catherine Stone (nee Irwin, daughter of Acheson Irwin and was married to Ralph Stone) and Dr John Ball - apothecary in Enniskillen. He had another daughter Elizabeth who may have married a John McGregor from Trory, Co Fermanagh.

Any information would be most helpful.
