I have attached a copy of Hugh's wedding certificate. Says Limavady as residence at time of marriage. His family are Protestant, caused problems when he married as he changed to Catholicism. My mother is certain he is from Limavady, as I have asked if shes sure due to being stuck trying to find stuff. Some stuff to look into though from the stuff I have been linked to, much appreciated.
I suppose it's too much to hope for that there's an actual address on the marriage certificate rather than 'Limavady'?

Like hallmark I also have checked for any child with surname Burns/any child with Christian name Hugh in Limavady district without finding anything close.

Could he have been born a bit later (and thus not available online)? Does you mother have any idea of the day and month of his birthday?

It's possible that Hugh was registered under a different name- if illegitimate for example- and later used the name of a stepfather, 'adoptive' father, grandfather or mother's partner.

Not to the knowledge of my family at least, but that's always a possibility (and something I've considered myself as I can find nothing at all!). He was born on or very close to Halloween, 1915.
