Hello,

Iím here again asking for more help with Irish ancestors.

Iím in Scotland, so we have Alan Robinson born 1896 in cambusnethan, Lanarkshire although the family lived in Harthill.

His parents John Robinson and Catherine Simpson were married on the 8th if January 1891 in Dungarven, Ireland.

Iíve tried looking but canít find their marriage record.  Also, their oldest son William Simpson Robinson wasnít born in Scotland.  They also have lost a child but I canít see any record.

Johns death certificate only has a mother recorded, Martha Robinson. 
Is anyone able to help with this family, Iím very interested to learn more about them .

Thanks
Caroline


So how do you know??

Hi,
I got the birth certificate for Alan Robinson who was born in Scotland and thatís what it said for parents marriage details.

Iíve got a bit confused now. Have I made a mistake with where they were from?  Sorry,

The marriage of John Robinson & Catherine Simpson took place in Bovevagh Parish Church on 8 Jan.1891 (link given in reply #1)- son's birth certificate probably says (or at least should say Dungiven- not too far away).

John Robinson was living in the townland of Ardinariff (Ardinarive)- north of Dungiven-

Catherine Simpson was a domestic servant at Bovevagh Rectory- Bovevagh townland is next to Ardinarive-

John Robinson (illegitimate) was born 1866 in the townland of Flanders-

Hi Caroline,
Yes you have made an error, I think. You have confused Dungiven, Londonderry and Dungarvan, Waterford.
It is quite likely that your information comes from a record where the spelling of the place was wrong though.

There is a lot of information here which will be useful to you and certainly looks like your family.  :)
