John Edward Fitzgerald Shortt
John Edward Fitzgerald Shortt was born on 30 June 1863 and baptised on 11 October 1863 in Templeharry Church, near Cloughjordan, County Tipperary, Ireland. His parents were John Shortt (1830-1905) and Harriett Anne Burriss (1843-1866) and they immigrated to New Zealand in 1865, apparently leaving their son to be brought up by his grandparents, Richard & Mary Burriss of Graffan, near Garrane, County Tipperary. Graduate records from Trinity College, Dublin, indicate that he obtained a BE degree in 1885 and an MA degree in 1888. The 1891 England Census shows that John E. F. Shortt, age 29, born in Ireland, was a Grammar School Headmaster living in Hallgarth, Pickering, Yorkshire. Also recorded, his wife, Anna A. Shortt, age 26, born in Ireland and William M. Burriss, a boarder age 24, born in Ireland, an Assistant School Master. The 1901 England Census shows John E. F. Shortt, age 37, a School Master and his wife, Anna A. Shortt, age 36, both born in Ireland, living in Hallgarth, Pickering, Yorkshire. Do any of the above names have a connection with your Shortt or Burriss family trees?
