Quinn-Thompson Marriage
« on: Wednesday 28 February 18 04:45 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone read the attached marriage record? I believe both their ages state "full age" and professions of both fathers state "farmer". Does that appear to be correct? Also, I can't make out Hugh's residence at all. Does anyone know what town he lived in? Thanks!

Full Age is correct 

Profession is  - I think Farmer is correct.

Not sure of residence.  MicKnogh maybe   see the 'gh' in Hugh in next column.

There is a place of that name in Ireland according to Google maps, and I don't think it is so far from Kelleter.

The names are Mucknagh and Killeter and both are in Co Longford.  Additional confirmation is from Griffiths Valuation 1854 where one of the occupiers of Mucknagh townland is James Quinn and Killeter townland is Hugh Thompson.  Both are deceased by the time of the marriage. 

This might be the family in 1901 Census

And in the 1911 census. Bridget has died and Hugh Quinn is a widower.

And a link to the death certificate of Bridget Quinn

Nearest place that I can find in Co Longford is Mullinalaghta but it doesn't quite look like that as it seems to have a K in it rather than ll.

Agree with Full age and Farmer

I see shanreagh has found it  :D
