Looking for an Uncle and a Grandmother

Family TreeI am looking for information on an Uncle and Grandmother.I am looking for George Henry [perhaps Lamb] Curran born April 20th 1914 in Peterborough Ont. Also looking for Anne Elizabeth Curran [Lamb] .George would have been my Uncle , Annie would have been my Grandmother.

I know they were in Peterborough in the 1921 census and they lived at 299 Murry St. After that they move to Thunder Bay [not sure when they moved.] There were two other children Anne [my Mother who is now 98 and still lives in Thunder Bay] born Feb 14-1916 and James Born Dec. 04-1917 died Jan. 06-1941 [war death].
My Grandfather John Curran was born in Keeraun South ,Ballycomath Clifden Galway, on June 06-1885,his father was Patrick Curran.
My Grandmother Anne Lamb was born in Sheffield England on March 10-1890.
While in Peterborough my Grandfather John worked at Quaker Oats.
When they were in Thunder Bay Uncle George Curran and Grandmother Anne Curran Lamb were not there, until I got the 1921 census my Mother never new she had a brother George. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Curran name, and its variations, are popular throughout Ireland, most particularly in county Donegal in the northern province of Ulster. The name comes from the Gaelic word “corradh” meaning ‘spear’. One of the most famous Irish Currans was John Philpot Curran, a barrister and a nationalist, whose daughter was engaged to Robert Emmett.


 

From Kenneth: The surname Curran appears to be patronymical in origin, and is believed to be associated with the Irish, meaning,"Grandson of Corran", a diminitive of "Coiradh (spear). Different spellings of the same name original surname are a common occurrence. Dictionaries of surnames indicate probable spelling variations of Curran to be Corran, Currane, Kirrane, Curreen, O'Currin, Curren,and Coiradh. Although bearers of the old and distinguished Curran name comprise a small fraction of the population, there are a number who have established for it a significant place in history.

They include: Simon Curran(O'Currin) (d.1302), Bishop of Kiljenora,Ireland.

Charles Courtney Curran (1861-1942) American painter of "perfume of the Rose", still hanging in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., "The Breezy Day"' in Philadelphia, and "Mountain Laurel."

John Philpot Curran (1750-1817) Irish orator and Judge who was a member of the Irish Parliament in 1783.

John Joseph Curran (1859-1936) ordained a priest in 1887, he spent the rest of his life as Curate and Pastor in the coal-mining area of Pennsylvania. He became famous for his support of miners and thier unions.

Amelia Curran(d.1847) She practiced painting only as an amateur, and her portrait of Percy Bysshe Shelly was exhibited in the National Portrait Exhibition in 1868.
