Maria Johnston born Rochfortbridge 1838
« on: Thursday 08 February 18 11:52 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find any info on this lady....her father was Robert Hardcastle Johnston
Born Newtown, Westmeath 1818....been trying to find some evidence of this in Irish records.
Have the above information from marriage certs and headstone.  Robert went on to have 3 sons in England, but didn't marry until 10 years after their births...so wonder if he still had a wife in Ireland.
He did give his daughter Maria away at her wedding in 1889 (Cirencester to Frederick Gibb) so was her father.
Any help gratefully accepted.
Thanks Jill
Johnston    Newtown, County Westmeath, Ireland
