Julia Jennings [1842- 1919], Francis Street, Dundalk, County Louth.

Julia Jennings was the fourth daughter of Patrick Jennings and Anne Coleman. She was born in Francis Street in 1842.  She was baptised on the 17th of April 1842.  Her baptismal sponsors were Bernard Coleman and Ann Jennings.

Julia was present at the profession of Miss Casey of Bonmahon, County Waterford in St. Malachy’s Convent of Mercy, Dundalk, in October 1864, along with her brother Patrick Jennings jr., in spite of the heavy rain which had descended steadily from an early hour of the morning and prevented several ladies and gentleman from attending.[1] St.Malachy’s was the convent where her sister Anne Jane had been professed in 1862.

Julia appears in the 1911 Census living in Francis Street with her brother Patrick Coleman Jennings, though she does not appear to have been there in 1901.

She died in Francis Street in 1919. She was 77 years old, a spinster, and described as a lady of private means.  Her brother Joseph Daniel of Seatown Place, was present at her death. Patrick Coleman Jennings who also lived in Francis Street died three years later in 1921.

Julia left a will. Her brother Joseph Daniel Jennings was named as the executor.
