Honora
« on: Sunday 26 August 12 22:09 BST (UK) »
I am searching for the ancestors of Honora, I am unsure of her surname but I know from the census that she was born around
1798 in Cork, County Cork, Ireland. She married to John Stephen Marlow (Born 18/10/1793 Nottinghamshire, England).

Hi there,

Our civil records only began in 1864, so to look for family on someone 70 years before that and not know their surname would be near on impossible.

Have you not gotten any records for the births of any of her children in England, which should contain her surname ?

I have searched all the counties of England for a marriage on FreeREG. I cannot find any marriage so is it possible that they married in Ireland? Are there any websites where I can search Ireland Birth, Marriage, Deaths?

I would suggest that the marriage took place in Ireland - the census also shows their eldest child was 'Hannora' bc.1819 Cork, Ireland.

Would it be possible to find the marriage or birth of Hannora? I am new to researching Irish ancestors, is there a free Birth Marriage Deaths website? Or can anyone recommend a paid one?

You are searching for records well before the start of civil records, so you will need to check for parish records. To do this you need to know a fairly detailed location for the baptism of Hanora or marriage for her parents - i.e. the parish, town or townland, as well as the denomination of this particular Marlow family.

see :  Introduction to Irish Records
         My Ancestor came from Ireland - where do I start?   

If they were RC and lived in the south western part of Co. Cork, then you could try the records on www.irishgenealogy.ie , but note that not all parishes have records back as far as 1819, particularly those in Rural areas.

If they lived in the north eastern part of the county than you could try the RootsIreland - note this is a pay-website.
