Sorry, yes mother Margaret.
Daughter Margaret (hopefully she is daughter) was married by then.
All seems to point to a marriage in England but canít see them yet.

Searching for a marriage in Tipperary seems pointless at present until all English avenues have been explored.
If Wiliam senior remained in army in 1840s and Margaret was his daughter, she could have met and married Mark Molloy anywhere in Britain, Ireland or overseas.

Birth registration of Thomas Kell Chester Castle sub district. From Cheshire BMD Births 1837-1839. It didn't specify year or have mother's maiden name on index. www.cheshirebmd.org.uk
The 1 yr old granddaughter on 1851 census may have been Elizabeth Kell registered in St. George sub district, mother's maiden name Kell. Probably child of a daughter.

A baptism to consider. Thomas Kell, parents William & Rosina, June 1839 at St. Mary's Church, Chester. (Family Search) Possibly baptism of the Thomas Kell whose birth was registered in Chester Castle sub district. A daughter of Margaret & Mark Molloy was Rosanna.

Why does Frances Kelly b. Whitehaven 1865 have a different surname?

Answer: She was an adopted daughter.

Mary Molloy birth registration 1850 Wolstanton, mother's maiden name Kell. (GRO)
So Mark Molloy and Margaret Kell were married by then.
Do you have birth registration or baptism of William Molloy, harfielc?
Have you got Mark Molloy or wife & children on a census before 1871? They are hiding from me.
