O'Raw - Hamilton Antrim
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 01:08 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I've been doing quite a bit of family research and have hit many brick walls but always somehow ended up been satisfied with how much I had on a particular line of my family.

I am however frustrated to the point that I need extra help.

I'm stuck on my 4th-Great-Grandparents, JOHN O'RAW and MARY (MOLLY) HAMILTON.

They are from Cushendall, Antrim which is in the Layde, Connor & Down, Ardclinnis area.
Most likely lived in Red Bay and Waterfront of that Town.

I can find records of JAMES O'RAW who I believe to be the son of JOHN and MOLLY.
JAMES was born in 1841, Layde, Antrim.
JAMES moved to Dublin and became a Sailor in the Merchant Navy.
JAMES married ANNE O'NEILL in 1890, Dublin.

I believe CHARLES O'RAW to be JAMES' brother, therefore the son of JOHN and MOLLY.
Charles moved to Dublin and was the sponsor for James's Daughter Martha O'Raw in 1873.

CHARLES is my 3rd-Great-Grandfather.
Not quite sure of the D.O.B but I think it's about 1829 in Cushendall, Antrim.
CHARLES married ANNE DELARGY.
CHARLES was also a sailor with the Merchant Navy.

The information I am short of is:
1. Marriage cert of charles O'Raw and anne delargy (Probably Antrim)
2. Marriage cert of John O'Raw and Molly Hamilton
3.Molly Hamilton information (presumed daughter of James Hamilton and Helen Pakenham married in Jamaica, Scotland. Helen who is daughter of Sir Edward Michael Pakenham, 2nd Earl Longford)
4. Anne Delargy's parents
5. Charles O'Raw's parents (for definite)

Any help who be great!

Thanks in advance,
Daniel

Only posted these to save others looking as you didn't say if you looked at the site or not.

So it is NLI registers you need,

Where did Charles and Anne have children? The date of the first birth would help date the marriage.
