Hi Heywood that is correct


Hello Mattie and welcome  :)

Is this your family living in Oldham?

1901 3805/9/10

Thomas Leonard 42 yrs
Margaret Leonard 41 yrs
Plus several children and
Austin Leonard 68 yrs

Parents and Austin born Ireland - 1911 indexes indicate Moylough for Thomas.

How far back have you searched?

PS it would be better to have a separate thread. I will contact a moderator to ask re this.

Mattie,

I think you are on the wrong track with Thomas Leonard's marriage. You can check the mother's name for Oldham births on Lancashire BMD. http://www.lancashirebmd.org.uk/ It is really useful.
James b 1890 is shown as Lennard.

This is a very good site too: https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/indexes_search.asp
You have to sign up for free but again mother's maiden names are shown.
Your family births indicate that Margaret's maiden name was Linah/ Lynah and there is a marriage in 1885 Oldham to match.
If I recall, there is a mention of Mayo on the censuses for Margaret.
