Hi
I did send you Patrick's Baptism record and it says...
Samuel Joseph as the father.

Ancestry and familysearch sites show this record, no details of parents names.
Rootsireland only have a 1920 record of a birth for a Christina.
The only way to get your info is to get a copy of the cert. using the numbers, codes etc.
There was another Christina born 1911 and died 1915, but I can't get any details sorry.

Yes, correct.
But wasn't the father a wood turner by trade?
Thomas as it says the fathers name is a wood turner on this birth record.

Thanks for everyone looking into this for me.  Yes Samuels occ was a wood turner.

Having spoken to relatives her was Christina and she was always called Chrissie.  I think the Christina born to Thomas and Bridget is mere coincidence despite the name of the informant as Lizzie Somerville.

Bridget's 1912 father Blacksmith.
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1912/01482/1603455

I edited this post to try to see if there was a pattern, it looks like either he lost his job for a while or when a nurse was the informant she said Labourer.
But than there is Bridget's where the informant Bridget Smith says Blacksmith.

Is there a grandmother in all this suffering from early stage dementia.

Is this their marriage
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1897/10453/5806770
It says Samuel Joseph.
Interesting the father John is a Smith.

Here is what I do know.

Elizabeth Smith, her parents are Patrick Smith & Bridget Farrelly.

And as stated in the link below:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1912/01482/1603455

Bridget's Grandmother is indeed correct.  It doesn't surprise that Samuel's occupation is that of a Blacksmith, as the three previous generations of the Somerville family were indeed Blacksmith's.

The marriage cert records him incorrectly as Samuel Joseph when he fact his name is Samuel Alexander and his father John is indeed a Smith.  I think I'm going to have to order the birth certificates for Christina (1915) and the last of the children, Francis.

Many thanks for everyone for helping me on this one.
