  • Notes 
    • 1874 - born Naas, Co Kildare, Ireland (Patrick's WW1 military records).
      1903 Jun 07 - married Isabella Carrick in Dublin.
      1906 Oct 11 - Patrick's wife Isabella died aged 29 in Dublin.
      1907 Nov 25 - Patrick marries Mary Moran (née Gavan). Mary was a widow, her husband Joseph Moran had died in 1904. Joseph Moran and Mary had 4 children:Bridget, Kathleen, Thomas and Joseph.
      1911 – census - Church Street, North Dock, Dublin, Ireland. Patrick & Mary have been married 3 years with no children. One of Mary's daughters aged 6 is living with them.
      1911 - 1915 - the Dublin Electoral Rolls in 1911, 1912, 1913, 1914 and 1915 still show Patrick Byrne as the tenant at 12 Church street - as in the 1911 census.
      1915 - R Dublin Fusiliers, 7th Battalion. Enlistment date unknown. Regimental No 12637.
      1915 Aug - "The 6th and 7th Dublins joined the 30th Brigade of the 10th (Irish) Division upon their creation in August 1914. The division left Ireland for Basingstoke, England in May 1915. On 7 June the division left the UK under the command of Irish General Bryan Mahon, arriving in Lemnos by late July in preparation for the landings at Suvla Bay, Gallipoli. The Dublins landed at Suvla on 7 August - a day after the first landings had taken place. Unlike at V Beach at Helles, Suvla was barely defended but incompetence at the higher echelons of command led to the British troops not exploiting their early advantage, ensuring that the Suvla landings became static and allowing the Turks to reinforce their defences. The Dublins took part in the effort to capture a position known as Chocolate Hill (7–8 August), which was successfully taken, though at a heavy cost."(Wikipedia)
      1915 Aug 08 - Died of wounds during battles following landing on Suvla Bay, Gallipoli on 7 Aug 1915 (see copy of chaplain's letter 9 Aug 1915 from Suvla Bay; Patrick had died the previous day from his wounds). As with so many from these battles, his body was never identified and is amongst the unknown buried in Hill 10 cemetery, Suvla Bay - in modern-day Turkey.
      Patrick Byrne is also on the IWM's site Lives of the First World War, you can find it here: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/694833 .
      1915 Sep - Buried Hill 10 cemetery, Suvla Bay, Gallipoli: 40°19'04.4"N 26°13'09.6"E. No known grave. Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). https://www.cwgc.org/ (See photograph of his stone cross - Media)
