Thomas Murphy wexford
« on: Tuesday 19 September 17 12:24 BST (UK) »
For years I have been searching for my Walsh side of family.  I now know Thomas Murphy married my gt.aunt Bridget Walsh and in 1901 census they lived in Slippery Green.  I believe one of their sons had a photographers shop on Main Street, Wexford Town.  Hoping someone from the Murphy family can finally shed light on my gt.grandfather John Walsh.

Bit confused...
I can't find Sippery Green in 1901 but is this the family in 1911
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Wexford/Wexford_No__2_Urban/Slippery_Green/697718/
Looking at the map I can see Distillery Road is in Slippery Green, Parish of St.Peters

Looking for the births of the children in that census I think that Bridget is Bridget Bale.
I can see an Edward and a Bridget born Distillery road to Thomas and Bridget Bale.

I can't see a marriage for Thomas Murphy and Bridget Walsh in Wexford around the same time as Thomas and Bridget Bale.

So it doesn't look like the one you thought  :-\

Back to the drawing board.  I found her birth reg in King Street, 1880 but the marriage record I found had about 7 names and as hers and Thomas Murphy were on it it assumed wrongly it was the one I was looking for.  Never mind.  Thanks for sending them, stops me going down wrong road.  Anne

Hi,

There is only Bridget's birth showing in 1880 and there is one death, 2nd quarter 1880 for Bridget Walsh.

Why don't you post a link to things you've found?

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Wexford/Wexford_No__2_Urban/Slippery_Green/697718/   is them in 1911, 12 years married, so people can look for marriage 1899.

He is a sawyer on 1911 Census.... so easier to find now from 1911 Census link

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Wexford/Wexford_Rural/Whiterock_South/1804585/

in 1901 census they did NOT live in Slippery Green!

YOU know Thomas Murphy married your gt.aunt Bridget Walsh...but why not tell people where or when?

Hallmark,

It isn't the right marriage or couple - see above, especially post #3

Seems I will have to start over again for my elusive Walsh family.  John Walsh marrying Mary Furlong are two names which appear in so many records.  Thanks for all suggestions, Anne's
