Margaret Byrne birth record
« on: Sunday 02 April 17 00:28 BST (UK) »
Hello, I'm trying to find a birth record for Margaret Byrne. On her marriage and census records it shows her age, indicating her being born in 1846. The census records state she was born in Drogheda. Her wedding cert states she was living in Dundalk. Her wedding cert shows her father as Michael Byrne. i have no indication of her mothers name so I can't guarantee which birth record could be hers. I did find the attached and wondered if boundaries in 1800s could have Meath for Dundalk? Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated.

That's great hallmark, thank you. Are both of these churches Catholic?

Unfortunately hallmark, I didn't find Margaret Byrne in the two baptism listings. This has me wondering if she told the truth about her actual age at the time of her marriage. The wedding cert states age 21, so I'm wondering if that was the legal minimum age for marriage?
