My 3 x great grandparents were Henry Joynt, farmer and Jane (nee Joynt) daughter of Dudley Joynt (farmer.)
It is believed that the family originated from the Ballycastle area of Co. Mayo, Ireland, although I am still trying to establish exactly where.
My 3 x great grandmother, Jane Joynt, was living in England in 1861, with 5 children, described as a widow. Also living in the same area were two other Joynt families, William and Ann Joynt and Dudley and Elizabeth Joynt.
At 14 Barton Street, off Liverpool Road, Manchester. There are no occupations listed for the people below:
This family were living at 25 Cowcill Street, Chorlton-Upon-Medlock.
|William Joynt||Head||M||43||Police Constable||Ireland|
|George Joynt||Son||S||13||Shop boy||Manchester|
|Mary Ann Joynt||daughter||S||12||Scholar||Manchester|
|William H. Joynt||Son||S||8||Scholar||Manchester|
|Charles Joynt||Son||S||Under 1||Manchester|
At number 44 Cowcill Street are:
|Dudley Joynt||Head||M||47||Day Labourer||Ireland|
|Catherine Joynt||Daughter||S||23||Cotton Weaver||Ireland|
|Mary Joynt||Daughter||S||19||Cotton Weaver||Ireland|
I am directly descended from Margaret Joynt, daughter of Jane and her deceased husband Henry Joynt (occupation – farmer.) I know all three families are connected from the evidence I have found over the last fourteen years, the only problem is that I still have to establish exactly how. I suspect Jane is the sister of Dudley as her maiden name was also Joynt before her marriage, I also know her father was Dudley Joynt, farmer. I suspect William could be either Jane and Dudley’s brother or their brother-in-law, Henry’s brother.
