Toweys County Mayo
« on: Sunday 11 December 16 15:24 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I dont know if anyone will be able to help me. I am having trouble in researching my mother's side of the family as her  Grandfather and  Grandmother and Mother came to England from County Mayo sometime between 1841 and 1851. All i have is an 1851 census where they were living in Birmingham with their children.
The names I have are:
James Towey born c1797
Catherine Towey born c 1804
Patrick Towey born c1824
Mary Towey born c1826
Margaret Towey born c1830
Andrew Towey born c1834
Catherine Towey born c1840 - my great grandmother
Ann Towey born c 1844

They were all born in County Mayo as far as i know but that is all the information I have about their life in Ireland.

I would be most grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction to further my research.

Although Griffiths Valuation was taken after your ancestors had left, it may give you an idea of locations where Towey name occurred.

At the 1851 census, going over to the next page will show more names in this household.

At 1861 census the name has been transcribed as JOWEY.......James, Catherine and daughter Ann. Also widowed daughter Margaret CALLAGHER (should be GALLAGHER), and her sons James, Thomas and Patrick          living at Dale End .

Thanks for that Wivenhoe. That's probably why I could not find them any further.
Thanks for taking the time to help me.
