Hello - how can I find a record of a birth in Armagh sometime between 1924 and 1927?

Hi Declan

I bought the book through Waterstones. Interesting reading with some good photos.

Thanks,

Louth / Re: English settlers in Louth

Bowden (or Boden) surname.

Simplistic view: Settlers in Ulster came from Scotland. Settlers in Munster came from South-west England, but where did settlers in Leinster come from?

Louth / English settlers in Louth

My Irish ancestors lived just north of Drogheda since at least 1630 according to a gravestone inscription, but there are references to two men of the same surname in the same area as far back as 1519. Although they were a Catholic family, it's not a Gaelic surname so I'm assuming that the family originally came from England or Wales.

I'm assuming that the area in England would have been Cheshire or Lancashire because that's the closest to Drogheda. However, I can find no information on the internet or in books about where English settlers to the Drogheda area originated. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Thomas Derek Bailey was born in Cleveleys, Lancashire in 1923. In the Second World War he served in the RAF Bomber Command and was station in Grimsby. That's all we know about his military career. Can anyone see his military service record?

Thank you.
