Marriage for Elizabeth Woodhouse and John Patrick Doran
« on: Tuesday 13 December 16 07:40 GMT (UK) »
Hello from New Zealand. :D I have been stuck on the above marriage for several years. Elizabeth born in Kings Lynn, and her husband Clonroche, Wexford, Ireland. Searches for the brides parish only reveal her cousins' marriage in 1866, Norfolk.
Their first definite child is Mary Ann and census entry gives Pittsburg, Pennsylvania as place of birth.

Family story has it that John (sometimes Patrick or James) met at the "big house in London". John a gardener and Elizabeth a servant. They went to America but didn't stay, re emigrating to Manchester, where John became a Policeman. Some Pennsylvania research found no Marriage or a birth for Mary Ann.

If they travelled to America surely it would have been as a married couple and not as Singles? Therefore marrying in England before travelling. I have also researched Irish records as John was a Catholic who states 'Married' on his Police Employment Records.

I have also researched IGI and have used spelling variants such as Wodehouse. I am really stuck and would appreciate a fresh objective opinion. Thank you for reading.

 :) Thank you for this advice and email address. I have previously paid for a search in Pennsylvania but I don't think it was for Roman Catholic Registers I will try this.
Thanks again ;)
