Hello Mary,

Nice to hear from you.

I have the children of Francis Farrell and Bridget Anne (nee Gallagher) as follows......

Margaret 1856, Mary 1959, Bernard 1861, John 1863, Alice 1865, Alice 1867, James Patrick 1869, Ann 1873 and Ellen 1873 (twins), Srah 1873 and Joseph 1880.

I have your grandfather marrying Edith Jane Mary Marchant in 1899, they had 6 boys and one girl ( if I have it right).

I can't find any further back than the father's names on the wedding certificate of Francis and Bridget.  My friend who is your cousin, went to Bangor and saw the Catholic priest and some of the baptism entries. I have tried to trace Francis' sister Alice but lose her, she married Edward Towland in Bangor in 1858. Also tried to track some of the other Farrell marriages around the same time in Bangor, trying to see if they were related.
Any thoughts?

Lee

Roger....
 Adelaide Mary Farrell born circa 1850, did she marry? and do you know where she was born......there is an Adelaide Mary Farrell in New South Wales in 1935?

I don't know where Adelaide was born(circa 1850),but I think she is listed as just "Miss Farrell" in a draper's shop in Liverpool in 1871,where I suspect she met David(Raymond or Raiment or similar) Jones.I have never traced a marriage,but I think they had a number of children,including one in Ireland(from memory Emily Frances in Dublin 1878) where the mother is described as Adelaide Mary Farrell Jones.

Regards
Roger

Hi Roger,

I found the family in 1891, it took me longer to find them than I thought, Adelaide was born in Sligo. Do you have them in that census? , David is a draper born in 1845 -Abergele, Wales: Adelaide born in 1850 in Sligo, Ireland, children David C, Emily, Robert and a cousin called Lydia Vick.
......Church Lane, Harpurhey, Prestwich, Lancashire, England

What census return do you have? Hope this helps.....
Lee

Thankyou,Lee.Somewhere,as it was quite a while ago,and it was for someone else,I have most,if not all of the info I require from the 1871 census onward.It's Adelaide's origins that remained a mystery.I remember a Sligo reference,but could make nothing of it.
Lydia Vick(or similar-the original is not exactly clear) is also a mystery.

Regards
Roger

Hi again Lee,
I haven't found my paper data cache yet,but having had a quick search again,I think Alice's husband Edward dies in 1860,registered under Tollan(!),and Alice remarries in 1861,registered under Tolan.I don't think I pursued it as far as identifying which were the pairings from the entry.
I also have information on Patrick Farrell,,who as a widower,married Mary Ann Dorkin,awidow,in 1847 in Bangor.He is given as a fishmonger of Garden Street with father John Farrell,a farmer.
It is perhaps worth noting that Edward Towland when he married Alice in 1858 gave his occupation as fishmonger.

Regards
Roger

Thank you Roger, for the information about Edward Towland/Tollan, I will look into it.

As for your Sligo link, I struggle to find anything I want in Ireland, I see lots of names but then can't cross reference them. Sorry I couldn't do more. But I will keep my eyes open.

I will carry on looking for my hoard of print-outs in case there was anything relevant to Bernard Farrell amongst it.

That is very kind of you, he is listed on the 2 marriage certificates as school master.
Thank you, Lee

My grandfather was James Patrick Farrell son of Francis and Bridget of Bangor, so it seems Mary was his older sister.  I also was born Mary Farrell!

Only just found your message, can I be any help? I have visited Kilkorkey in Ireland but not been able to find any records, but I keep trying,
Regards Mary
