The Family of Helen McGregor Milne and Patrick Tallan

Helen McGregor Milne (1884-19??
Patrick Tallan (1876?-1933)
Married: 11th January 1913
Paricia Margaret Tallan (1914-19??)

Patrick was born in Drogheda in 1876?, the son of Thomas Tallan a Merchant.

Patrick had two children from an earlier marriage, he married Julia Mary Tiernan the daughter of James Tiernan, a merchant in Wilkinstown, Co. Meath on 27th April 1904. Julia died on 25th March 1908.

The children from this marriage were:
Gladys Mary Louise Tallan born 21st August 1905.
Constance Tallan born 1907/8

Gladys married Thomas Cashel Mulhall Corbet, the son of Thomas Mulhall Corbet, on 8th June 1932 in St Michael’s Church, Dun Laoghaire. Father and son were Doctors and the son was living in Dun Laoghaire at the time of the marriage. Robert Mulhall Corbet, Constance and Beatrice Tallan were witnesses. There do not appear to be birth or marriage registrations for Constance or Beatrice at so it is impossible to tell if Beatrice is a full sister to Patricia Margaret or a cousin. The Tatler mentions “the marriage is taking place in India on April 15 between Mr. T. L. Hughes, 20th Lancers, the son of the late Lieutenant- Colonel E. M. Hughes, and Mrs. Luard, of Hambledon, Henley-on-Thames and Miss Constance Tallan” in its edition of 19th February 1936. There are also mentions of a Constance Tallan appearing on radio in plays and readings in 1929 and 1930.
