Michael Rielley, Bo'ness
« on: Wednesday 09 December 15 22:06 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm trying to find out information on Michael Rielley aka Rielly, Reilly and Rielly. He was born in Bo'ness in 1821 or 1822, to parents Michael and Mary. Michael snr was born in Ireland and the 1841 census shows he has a wife, Mary, and two children, Michael, aged 3 years, and James, aged 3 months. I found a death cert for Michael jnr, who died aged 48, in cambusnethan in 1897. What i'd really like to know is when his parents died, and if they were still in Linlithgowshire. Mary's maiden name looks like Mulrane, but not sure, as the writing is hard to decipher. Its also possible Michael snr was married twice, as there is a Hugh Rielley who owns the lair in which Michael jnr is buried, but I cant find any connection between the two. Oh, and the 1871 and 1881 census show Michael snr still living in Bo'ness. If I could find out the year he died, I could contact the cemeteries person to find out where he is buried and possibly find more relations. Long shot but thought I'd ask. :)

Sorry, got the dates wrong. Michael Snr was born in ireland in 1821 or 1822. Michael jnr was born in Bo'ness in 1848 or 1849. This should clarify previous post.  :)

Hi Naz,

Have you tried scotlandspeople website for a death?

If you use the "soundex" option for surname it will bring up variants.

Use a window from year last seen on census as he may have died close to census night so include that year up until an age of 100 to see what comes up.

Also, use the name beginning with "mich" as there are names such as Micheal/Niel as an example as opposed to Michael/Neil!!
