Mcdonald/Burke
« on: Tuesday 10 November 09 20:13 GMT (UK) »
Hi all
I just wondered if any of you good people would have any family connections in Ireland.
I Have recentley traced back the birth of anne Mcdonald 25/02/1827 Parish/district Cavan
County Co.Cavan
Roman Catholic
Father was a Denis Mcdonald and Mother Was Mary Burke
Sponsor was Joan Beavis
Anne Emigrated to scotland at some point,She Married My G.G.grandfather Peter Campbell.As i have the marriage certificate in 1848.
Peter Campbell was born in 1828 Barony scotland.
They later travelled to india as Peter Campbell was a soldier for 16yrs.
He was in the Indian Mutiny and won a medal which i have.
they had three children Robert Campbell born Manchester 1856
Charles Campbell born 1861 Poona India
Mary Jane Campbell born 1864 Kurrache India

sorry to go on i was just trying to give some background information.

I was just hoping to make a family connection in ireland.

Many thanks for reading and good luck to you all.

Hi, can you let me know how you get on,  my step fathers name is Burke, would be interested if there is a connection.

Think his father was Thomas Rex Burke and his Mother was Patricia.

Hi Julian,

Not being familiar with research in Cavan I had a look on the 'usual suspects' sites.

Cavan seems to be in the parish of Urney & Annagelliffe in the diocese of Kilmore. NLI have marriage records going back to July 19, 1812. See http://www.kilmorediocese.ie/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=13&Itemid=35
and
http://www.nli.ie/en/parish-register.aspx

IFHF shows a birth for Anne McDonald in 1827 but no marriage for Denis and Mary. See http://cavan.brsgenealogy.com/index.php

The usual practice was for the marriage to take place in the bride's parish so maybe Mary was from outside Cavan?

Maybe if you ask the moderator to move your post to the Cavan board someone with better local knowledge will be able to help.

Good luck with your research.

Dara.
