Sarah Myers married to Thomas Baird rutland parish of bennykerry carlow
« on: Wednesday 13 October 10 14:37 BST (UK) »
These are my grandparents and my grandfather left my grandmother to go to england for work but never returned and at the time there was a neighbour who went after him also ended up leaving his family behind . trying to find out about him and any family members from that area . As he was not spoke of by my family he left behind 3 children all of whom had to go into foster care of which the abuse suffered was unthinkable .

Thomas & Sarah appeared to have married in Carlow in the July - Sept 1938 quarter. You might want to order a copy of their marriage cert from the GRO in Roscommon, as that will give you his and Sarah's parents names.

Ask for a research copy as that is cheaper than a full cert.

3 children in birth index too, all born Carlow:

George P Baird b Jan – Mar 1939
Marie C Baird July – Sept 1941
Thomas Baird July – Sept 1941

Presumably Marie & Thomas were twins

Blimey yes these are my uncles and the female would have been my aunt but sadly she died very young all i know about her is she was laid to rest maybe in an unmarked grave in bennykerry churchyard I am now on a mission to try and find out as much as possible . since my mother who was their sister she was born later in 1944 .

Sadly my mum passed away last year and the history was not spoken about . So this is great thank you

You could try a letter to the local newspaper seeking contact with anyone who has knowledge of the family. You might find some descendants alive today.

I could do that but I have one uncle still alive the eldest of their children , and he would not be too impressed with that as I have asked him to fill me in and he just freezes up.  wounds go to deep for him and I just thought this way I could get helpful tips as I don't know where to start .

I am also looking for any info on my fathers side particularly my grandmother alice stynes who was born in scotland ( paisley ) and travelled to ireland with her parents micheal carroll and mary carroll of straboe co carlow . the scottish connection is what i want to look into . they had a large family 6 children I know of .

I take your point about not wanting to upset your uncle. In that case you’ll just need to try and put the pieces together from official records. I’d suggest you get Sarah & Thomas’s marriage cert. From that we may be able to work back to find their respective parents.

I had a look to see if I could see any of your relatives in the 1901/1911 Irish censuses both of which are on line:

www.census.nationalarchives.ie/

No trace of any Bairds in 1911 in all of Co Carlow. Only one in 1901 – Constance Baird. She was born in England. Do you think Thomas came from another county?

www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Carlow/Leighlinbridge/Leighlinbridge/1043004/

6 Myers in 1901, 13 in 1911. Can’t tell if any of them are from Bennykerry as it doesn’t appear to be a townland the census recognises. You may know if any of the ones in the census might be close by. (I live in Co. Antrim and don’t know Co. Carlow well at all).

Looked also for Carroll in Co Carlow. Again not many. Only 1 in Straboe in the 1911 census:

Myles Carroll servant
www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Carlow/Kinneagh/Straboe/308368/


For tracking your Scottish relatives, I think that you probably need to search Scotland’s People website

www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/?gclid=CKyD2Imq0KQCFeNc4wodwDFmUA

You’ll need to pay. Scottish birth certs normally say where the parents were married which is very helpful.
