Many thanks for info. Will need to find Hugh Carey's record somehow, I may have to order it directly.

I was wondering if we could find out if there were any Corrigan families in the area, who were contemporaries of Sarah Carey/Corrigan. She was born c. 1815 so we'd be looking at people in that range. It doesn't seem to be a very common name in Belmullet, and assuming Sarah was born in Belmullet, if we find any other Corrigan families they will be related closely to Sarah.

Many Thanks,

Anthony

Have you looked at the Belmullet parish register for marriage of Anthony Kelly & Anne Carey? It's in Marriage Register 1858-1880.
http://registers.nli.ie/parishes
This has Belmullet marriage registers 1836-1845 & 1858-Nov 1880 and baptism registers 1841-Dec. 1872 & Dec 1872-Jan. 1881. Searchable by year and month. Then  scroll down for subsequent pages. There was only a page and a half of marriages in 1869 so I found it straightaway on 25th April. Names of witnesses unclear: Wm. Fadden? or Pudden? and Ann Crease?
In March of the same year a Pat Carey married a Mary Carey. Witnesses were John Kelly and Anne Carey. In August a Pat Carey married Honor McNamara.
Details in Belmullet marriage registers were sparse.
The later baptism register, 1872-1881 has parents' names, including maiden name of mother, names of sponsors and what might be place of abode in margin, or may be name of priest.
Earlier baptism register is harder to read. The page I looked at was torn at top and around edge. It had names of parents and sponsors. There may have been more written on the missing bits of pages.
Edit. I see that a previous post has already drawn your attention to the marriage register page with wedding of Anthony & Anne Carey.

Have you looked at:
 Griffiths Valuation for any Corrigan who may have held land there in 1850s?
Tithe Applottments register for 1820s/30s. Only includes people who were liable to pay tithes.
Further back in time, the Irish Linen Board register of grants to flax growers, aka The Spinning Wheel List. This dates from 1790s and obviously includes only flax growers.
Browse Belmullet marriage registers for 1830s & '40s and baptism register for 1840s on. People born c1815 would have been getting married in those decades. Keep a lookout for Corrigan as witness or godparent. A Corrigan man may have married a girl from a neighbouring parish, so look at adjacent parishes as well. The priest may have written his abode, especially if he was from another parish.
