Thank you all for the info I have received it has been so helpful I now have baptism records for my Great Grandmother Catherine(Kate) and her siblings IF indeed it is the correct family, how can I verify that??

In every record it shows the mother as Mary Nockton/Noughton/ Nocton/Nochton and other variations which I really believe are transcription errors and the father as John Dunphy.   

My next question is: would they have never married?? I cant find any marriage records at all for John Dunphy and Mary Nockton or variations

I also know Catherine went to England and she married there in 1877 aged 20 yrs (I have her marriage cert) this cert shows her father John Dunphy as a gardener and deceased obviously prior to her marriage. I can't find any death record for John Dunphy either, may have been in Ireland and catholic???

How do I find how and when she got to England and if the whole family went?

I can't find the family on the 1871 England census so I am thinking that she would have still been in Ireland at that time as she would have only been around 14 years old

If anyone could give me some ideas where to look and any help would be really grateful
