Offaly (Kings) / Re: Decipher possible enumerator error

Hi JenB Apols if I have wasted your time but I only asked for suggestions on place name. I didn't expect anyone to do any searches for me.

Catherine remarried after Bernard Irons death and is listed as Catherine Johnson, widow, living in Weaverham Cheshire with Kenerley family in 1861 (RG9/2601)

Does anyone know if there are Ireland parish records for Ballinasloe for late 1700s anywhere?

Offaly (Kings) / Decipher possible enumerator error
« on: Thursday 06 September 18 12:29 BST (UK)  »
Im trying to find Birthplace for my 5x grandmother Catherine Doorly born abt 1798 (i have found her name spelt with a C and K for Katherine and her surname varies  Doorly, Doorely, Doody)
I know she was from Ireland but she moved to England with her husband who was a soldier in British Army in early 1800s
The only clue i have is the 1861 England Census gives her  Place of birth is recorded as
 'Ireland Baluawak Kow'
I think that the enumerator problem wrote this phonetically but i it clearly isn't a place in Ireland!

Can anyone suggest where this could be?

She married Bernard Irons from Aweston/Birr Kings County. Im thinking that she is could be from somewhere nearby but as he was in the Army they travelled a lot.
He joined the Army at the age of 13yrs so would have been a soldier when they meet.
I have found the birth record of a daughter Mary born in 1835 in Dublin and twins (Katherine and Bernard) born in Scotland in 1821
Her husband was posted in Dublin 1816/17, Nass 1817, Londonderry 1820.
Katherine could be from any of these places or surrounding areas.

Any ideas where  'Baluawak Kow' is would be welcome. My thoughts are it probably starts with 'Bally..' but i could be wrong. My Irish geography knowledge isnt that good!

Im hoping if I can find where she was born I might be able to find her birth or marriage

Thanks for any help

Ireland / Irish Wills
« on: Thursday 06 September 18 11:53 BST (UK)  »
I have found record for my 4x great grandfather in Public Records of Ireland Index of Prevocative Wills 1811-1858
Entry reads 'Bernard Irons Sgt In His Majesty's 41st Reg of Foot  1830'
 Does any one know if 1830 is the date the  Will was registered or date of his death?
Also can the original will be viewed and if so how?
Many thanks for any help.

Thanks Claire. Yes I found that one but it's too late unless the first child was born before they married.

Cheshire Lookup Requests / Marriage of Thomas Hodkinson
« on: Sunday 17 August 14 10:18 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone find the marriage for Thomas Hodkinson (Hogdkinson, Hodgekinson) to Mary. I dont have her surname
Thomas was bpt May 1809 St Chads Over and died in Whitegate in 1866, so he doesnt seem to have moved far. He worked in the Salt works all his live.
All but one of his children where born in Over/Wharton. Only odd one was Sarah b1846/6 in Salford.
His wife Mary was born in Eaton Abt 1818 (From 1851 Census) The local church is St Marys Eccleston
I have tried all derivatives of Hodkinson I can think of and checked Cheshire and Lancashire.
They probably married between 1828 and 1837 (First child i can find b 1837)
I cant find a marriage that fit
Can any one find te marriage or Marys birth? Im well truly stuck

Australia / Re: Search for long lost great grandfather
« on: Thursday 22 August 13 11:09 BST (UK)  »
Thank you all for your help it is much appreciated. I have found some more photos of my Great grandad sent from Australia. I still dont know his name but in I it is more likely to be Christopher or Thomas Gibson. 
I have some old Kodak Austral postcards from the 1920s of him. On the edge of each is written 'stevens photo 18 Regents St Fitzroy'. I dont know if stevens produced the postcards or is this grandads name?
I found a Regents st in Fitzroy Melbourne Victoria Australia.
Does anyone know if there was a photographers shop at 18 Regent st at this time?
I know its a long shot but can any one look up Thomas/ christopher Gibson born 1985 +/- 10years would have arrived Australia between june 1903 and april 1904 possibly arriving Melbourne. The was a builder when he left the UK,  although the postcard show him in a field  of crops so the may have become a farmer.
