|Father||William GREENSLADE (confirmed by George's marriage record)|
|Notes||George went to Ireland for the Forestry Commission, married Margaret Leahy and remained in Ireland.
In 1890 (at their marriage) George and Margaret were living in Boola, Templemichael, Waterford. In 1894 (at the birth of George) they were living in Park, Cork.
The March 31, 1901 Census gives George's age as 36.
The Irish 1911 Census (April 2nd) record gives George as being 45. At the time the family was living at house number 3 in Ballycondon Commons (Templemichael, Waterford)
Family tradition says that George came from Exeter, Devon and this record from the UK 1881 Census is almost certainly George (Cheriton Fitzpaine is 10 miles from Exeter):
GREENSLADE, George Servant Single M 15 1866 Farm Servant (Indoor) Cheriton Fitzpaine Devon
This George is given in the UK 1871 (April 2nd) Census as "George B. Greenslade, age 4, Cheriton Fitzpaine" (George's name in his birth record is given as George Bamsey, so probably the "B" was for Bamsey, the family having another George who lived 1859?-1863?)
This George, born in Cheriton Fitzpaine, had a father William Greenslade (born 1822?) and mother Charlotte (born 1828). William is given in George and Margaret's marriage record as a farmer. In the 1871 Census he is given as an agricultural labourer.

Patrick migrated to Canada, arriving on March 30, 1924 (see record). He sailed on the S.S. Celtic leaving on March 23, 1924, 3rd class passage, his age is given as 25, single, farmer, intending to be a farmer, closest relative in Ireland is given as his mother Mary Greenslade [note he said his mother was Mary and not Margaret] at Ballinatrea, Templemichael, Youghal. His stated destination was the Winnipeg YMCA.
There is a record of Patrick Greenslade being on the crew of the S.S. "Pr. Alice" from Victoria, B.C., to Seattle on August 8, 1943 (see record). He is listed as having worked for the company for one year, being a "Nite-man", age 44, Irish, 5'6", 135 lbs. The age is exactly correct so it probably is this Patrick, especially as the name, Patrick Greenslade, is relatively rare (there are none in the 1911 Canadian Census). [The princess Alice was a "pocket liner" passenger vessel in the coastal service fleet of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Built in 1911, the company sold her in 1949.]
A "Pat Greenslade, laborer" is listed in the British Columbia voter register for 1945 at a rooming house property at 927 Main Street, Apt. 2, Vancouver Centre

Kit and Frederick lived in London and had no children. For a picture of Kit and Fred in 1949 see Kitty Donoghue and Jim Doyle's Wedding. Headstone in Youghal cemetery says: "Catherine (Kate) Turner, 1 Dr Kennedy Place, Died 10 Feb 1986 aged 84 years.

Maggie married Michael (Mick) LANDY (headstone in Youghal cemetery reads "In Memoriam, Michael Landers, died Oct 19 1975). They had one daughter, Noreen (civ reg births index: Nora M Landy, Mother's Surname: Greenslade, Apr-Jun 1950, district: Lismore, v.4, p.459). They lived in Knockanore, Waterford.
Note that George Greenslade's baptism record in 1894 lists Mary Leahy as one of the sponsors. The gravestone record below for a Mary Leahy, who died in 1920, says that she was formerly from Dungourney which is about 2 miles west of Dangan or 11 miles west of Youghal. Could that Mary Leahy perhaps be the Mary that sponsored George at his baptism? (possible civ reg deaths index record: Apr-Jun 1920, Death Age: 62, district: Middletown, v.4, p.415)
(for Youghal) Ballyvergan West a James Leahy", and at Cronakin's Lane a "James Leahy", and at 15 Kenny's Lane a "James Leahy", and at 53 North Main Street a "Michael Leahy", any relation?
