Kildalkey
« on: Tuesday 03 September 13 05:05 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any knowledge of Kildalkey RC parish records in 1864?
My great grandfather, James Nowns (Knowles), and my great grandmother, Mary Quin married in Kildalkey in 1864.  James's father was Harry Nowns. Mary's father was Patrick Quin.

I have contacted the parish, about seven years ago I was there and left a note in the priest house door, I can not get a response.

I am trying to find out the mother of James so I can connect him to the correct Henry (Harry) Knowles, his father, who I think lived in Athboy.

I know a mother's name may not always be mentioned.

Would anyone know anything about any of the above people or Kildalkey parish records.  I know the parish is now connected to Ballivor.  I get no response to queries.

If anyone has any knowledge, i would be grateful!

Re: Mary Quin, born 1842 in Kildalkey

Hello Laochrione,
I feel like I am taking advantage of your kindness. I hope I am not!
If you are looking sometime at Kildalkey records, could you check for the baptismal record for Mary Quin born 1842.
Her father was Patrick Quin. I would love to know her mother's name and godparents.
You have helped me so much. I am very appreciative.

I have two possible contenders, but neither is from Kildalkey or 1842:

Name:   Mary Quinn
Date of Baptism: 03-Feb-1845   
Parish/District:   TRIM
Father:   Patrick Quinn   
Mother:   Anne Newman
Godparents: Edward Caffrey and Margaret Newman

http://registers.nli.ie/pages/vtls000635283_042

Name:   Mary Quin      
Date of Baptism: 08-Aug-1840
Parish/District:   KILMESSAN
Father:   Patrick Quin   
Mother:   Margaret Wilkinson
Godparents: James Downes and Catherine Swan

http://registers.nli.ie/pages/vtls000635168_036

The key to whether she might be related usually lies in the Godparents names. Hopefully they'll match someone on your tree!!

Well, once again I thank you, laochrione!
I agree with you about the value of knowing the Godparents and marriage witnesses.
Mary Quin Nowns appears to be another challenge!!
Good wishes,
Kathy
