O'MEARA, Michael & DANE/DEAN, Margaret - missing marriage
« on: Thursday 22 June 17 01:43 BST (UK) »
Good morning

I have a missing marriage for a couple of my forebears from Tipperary, and having received lots of great help from this forum previously, I thought I would try my luck.

My great-great-grandfather's New Zealand death certificate gives the following information regarding his parents:

Michael O'MEARA
Margaret O'MEARA (nee DEAN)

He was also married in NZ but at that time marriage certs did not record parents.
My Dad's cousin did some research into church records some years back and found these baptism records for the Roman Catholic church in Toomevara, Tipperary:

Daniel 08.07.1850 (my g-g)
Parents: Michael O'Meara, Margaret Dane
Residence: Ollatrim
Sponsors: Patt Meara, Anne Dane

Patt 16.04.1852
Parents: Michael O'Meara, Margaret (surname not recorded)
Residence: Not recorded
Sponsors: Daniel Tierney, May (surname not recorded)

Margaret 07.07.1854
Parents: Michael O'Meara, Margaret (surname illegible)
Residence: Ollatrim
Sponsors: Patt Cleary, Honora Nolan

Daniel & Margaret are both confirmed as siblings since they both migrated to NZ and married here and their descendants are known to each other.

Does anyone have access to these records that could source a marriage for Michael & Margaret O'Meara please?

Many thanks
Nick

Margaret Dean may have been from a different parish.
Marriages usually took place in the brides parish.
Try adjoining parishes.
