I am looking for any information anyone can give me on Joseph Parke born 1886 in county Leitrim and died in 1933 in Toronto, also his wife Augusta Hewitt Parke , born in county Armagh 1892 and died in Toronto 1972. Is Parke a common name in county Leitrim? There is a Parke castle in county Leitrim...any connection?

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

Does his marriage or death certificate list parents or at least his father? Do you know what religion he was? his occupation? It's usually best, and necessary to get all possible details from Canadian records before looking for Irish records.

One possibility here in 1901- www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cavan/Belturbet/Butler_s_Street/1061848

After doing a historical search on Family Search i found this marriage in Toronto,Ontario,Canada two dates given 7th and 11th Aug 1915
Joseph Parke son of Malcolm Park and Maria Parke nee Parke to
Augusta Hewitt dtr of William Hewitt and Eleanora Boyd.

Josephs parents married 15 March 1866 in Oughtaragh, Ballinamore, Leitrim.
Malcolm Parke son of William Parke to Maria Parke dtr of Francis Parke.
Some of their children born before 1881 after this the mothers maiden name is not shown so there could be a few more after 1881
William 1867
John    1869
Mary Anne 1871
Francis  1873
Elizabeth 1874
Margaret 1879.

The P R O N I Wills Calendar shows a will index in 1926 for William Hewitt died Dec 1925 of Mulladry and left his estate to W James Rountree and Wilson Stanley ,both these men can be found in Mulladry on the 1911 Census as Williams neighbours. related ? as we do not have access to the North of Ireland death index after 1922 i dont know how old this William was when he died,the William Hewitt father of Augusta would have been approx 78 yrs old at this time.
