The Ireland Family

Mabel was born Mabel Barker and as such was related to the Harsley family, her grandmother was Bertha Barker (nee Harsley), click here to see more photos of the Barker family.

As yet Tom is the first of the Ireland family that we know anything about.

They were married in 1929. They had children Terry and Barry. There are lots of photos on the website of Terry, click here for an index of photos of Terry.
