Remembered Today:

Maj T J Atkinson of Armagh


Recommended Posts

My information on Thomas Joyce Atkinson is that he was OC of B Coy, 9th R Irish Fusiliers, KIA 1/7/16 and buried Ancre British Cemetery, Beaumont Hamel. He was a solicitor (MA, LlB, TCD) in Portadown, son of Wolsey Richard and Alice Atkinson. There is reference online to an incident in 1922 when, in the Donegal Civil War, members of the IRA visited the houses of prominent Unionists in attempts at abduction. The house of T J Atkinson was among those visited. Is any connection known between the two T J Atkinsons?

Thanks, gents. The TJA in post #3 is presumably the one mentioned as a Unionist in the Donegal Civil War.
