Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

12 October, 1907  


A singularly useful and novel gift has been sent by the Countess of Aberdeen to Mrs. Cooke, wife of a Lurgan carpenter, who gave birth to triplets—two boys and a girl some time ago. The present took the form of a specially constructed perambulator, so arranged as to accommodate the three babies. A brass plate affixed to the vehicle records the fact that it was presented by the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and the Countess of Aberdeen, with hearty congratulations on the occasion of the first birthday of the triplet of babies, and with all best wishes for their future welfare. The gracious letter accompanying the gift added to the pleasure given to the recipients.


The information on this website is free and will always be so. However, there are many documents and records that we would like to show here that are only available for sale. If you would like to make a donation to the Lurgan Ancestry project, however small (or large!), to enable us to acquire these records, it would be very much appreciated. We could cover our pages in Goggle Ads to raise money, but feel that this would detract from the information we are trying to provide. You can also help us to raise money by purchasing some of our ebooks on our sister website:
