illegible mothers name on birth certificate
« on: Friday 09 February 18 03:35 GMT (UK) »
I have a birth cert for Mary Ann Connell Liverpool 1849 J 20 330. Father was John Connell.
Mary Ann was born 21/4/1849 at 58 Gascoyne St. Liverpool with mother Mary Connell formerly xxxxxx? The mothers name is something like Curree or Currie, whereas I had expected it to be Dempsy or Connors.
Is there any way of tracking down the mother's name? Presumably the GRO certificate is a copy of an entry - is it possible to get a view of the original entry for instance?
Would appreciate any ideas

The GRO indexes give the mother's maiden surname as CURRIE.  There are none with the maiden name DEMPSEY or CONNORS.

There is a big gap between Children Bridget born 1839 Ireland and Mary Ann 1849 Lancashire.
Could John have married more than 1 Mary?

Yes Trish I am working on that as a possibility. But having trouble finding who that could be.
It seemed to fit that Mary Ann could have been a Connell /Dempsey child (followed by Jeremiah in 1854 in Hackney) while Bridget was from a previous marriage. There is another tree which suggests Mary Connors but I canít find support for that.However Currie is a new name and I canít find any obvious links. I also donít have a good birth reference for Bridget Connell in Ireland about 1838.
Any help unscrambling this would be much appreciated

There is another child Michael b 1853 with mmn Curry.

 Mary Ann and Michael both baptised St Maryís but motherís name not shown. Sometimes the motherís name is in the register too.

There is an 1854 birth for Jeremiah OíConnell in Hackney with mmn Dinse.

Would that be the Dempsey you have?

Other children in the Hackney family have mmn Demsea or Dimpsey so it looks as though Mary Ann might not be of the same family.

The online trees I've looked at seem to be totally up the pole.

Cannot find the family on census after 1851?   Have you?
