1871 for Kent  has Julia Sullivan aged 40 widowed and daughters Johanna 17 and Ellen 15 - all born Ireland  RG10 Piece 904 Folio 100 Page 5

Can't find Margaret

That's them. Yes I suspect Margaret is in service. I suspect Michael has signed up with the services by that stage. I find Margaret marrying George William Boother in 1874 in Chatham.

Ellen had learning difficulties. I had an Aunt who grew up knowing Margaret.

Family info and census documents suggest she was born in Chatham, Kent in 1857,

Freebmd has a March 1859 birth but RD is Dartford whereas Medway was the RD for Chatham


Actually on the GRO, the March 1859 the mother's maiden name was Brickley.

I had found a Daniel and Julia (Buckley) getting married and later with children Ellen and Johanna being baptised, in Cork, Ireland.

Might take a punt and order it . . . .

Still looking for baptisms, so will trawl through Medway as someone else suggests.

Thanks.

Before I go into detail of something I have just found - can you confirm that Margaret's 1874 marriage cert confirms her father was Daniel?

Yes, I can confirm mcert states father is Daniel. As does census, and family stories.

Thanks

If the family were staunch Catholic, then sadly my suggestion of trawling through the PRs on Cityark will be no use, they only have the C of E Registers.

As father was definitely Daniel, the other census entries I found are a different family.
