Title: Eliza Murray baptism entry
Post by: murrato1 on Thursday 10 September 20 23:18 BST (UK)
Hi all

I'm having trouble reading this entry in the Ireland Roman Catholic Parish Baptisms from 30 October 1817.  The mother's name looks like Maria (Latin form of Mary?) but I can't make out the rest of it.

Would really appreciate some help.

Thanks
Tony

Bottom right

Father begins with D but not sure after that, mother Maria but no surname
Michael Quinn and ? Byrne.

Could the father be Daniel? One site gives the Latin as Daniele

Iím finding it hard to see the first name as Eliza, despite the transcription.
It may start with E, but it may end ...lia.

I think the fatherís name is some version of Dionisius = Denis

E[...]lia[?] Murray f(ili)a Dionitii[?] & Mariś SS
Michaele Quinn & Rosa Byrne


E[...]lia[?] Murray daughter of Denis[?] & Mary, sponsors
Michael Quinn & Rose Byrne

Could it be Caelia instead of Eliza? Is that even a name? Is it a form of Celia?

Or even Carlia or Corlia but I like Caelia (from Dublin1850)  as an option.
