Michael Preston & Mary Flannigan Completed thank you all very much

Don't have any actual information other than an extract from the 1881 census,  which lists them as living at 68 park street with their family. 
Michael Preston Labourer born Ireland
Mary Flannigan - wife born Ireland
Theresa aged 10, Michael aged 8, Peter aged 5, Patrick aged 4, John aged 5months.  I reckon my Grandfather Joseph was born about 1884 although I'm not sure. 

Cannot find any info on Mary Flanningan other than above.

EUREKA moment Sancti  :D

Michael and Mary look to have married in Scotland ( 09 JAN 1871 Bothwell). The marriage cert. available to view on line at Scotlands People www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk, will include both their parents' names including mothers' maiden names.
