A link to the baptism, bottom of the left page

As you can see here the Register for this parish starts in 1803

are you sure the parents married?

Hi Sinann, thanks for your reply.

Hi I'm not so sure they did, they definitely didn't get married before the birth of Hugh Parker.
I have found marriages for a Alley turner and a James Buckley
on 12 Jan 1823 in Kilmichael, Cork, Ireland. Hugh Parker and Martha Grainger (can't remember where i found that).

Will take a look at the links. thanks again.

I was trying to read what the priest has written after their names, I think it says "of no certain residence" might not be "certain" but either way it sounds like they weren't locals or were at least moving around a lot which will make them very hard to find. Assuming records even survive, many don't from this early period.
Have you got later records for their son?
Did he use his mother or father's surname?

Hi Sinann.

I have a few records for him but nothing between the baptism and joining the army, can't find any army records. The army details i have come from ancestry, someone else has a letter with these details on, think he said he was given the letter from a family member but doest know much about it.

People didn't generally leave anything between baptism and marriage, and with no idea where his parents were from or if they married I can't think of anywhere to even suggest looking. I was hopeing the priest might have persuaded them to marry but there are no marriages showing in that parish after Feb 1808 for the rest of the year.

A post on the Armed Forces board here might yield some information about his military records.
