That is brilliant no wonder I was flying off in the wrong direction - Gedb

Through more luck than judgement I have now been able to confirm a birth date of 25th October 1884 for Ellen Jane, a bit earlier than we originally thought but your information was good, just now digging through the earlier things for details on Sarah - thank you - GedB

Thanks aghadowey, quick question though, most of the family seem to be recorded as Church of Ireland where the church records online are Catholic baptisms, are there any CoI baptism records online anywhere - GedB

Down / Mother & Daughter birth records
« on: Thursday 07 April 22 12:36 BST (UK)  »
I am struggling to find birth records for Sarah Gibson and her daughter Ellen Jane. I believe that Sarah was born in Downpatrick sometime around 1856, records in later life appear to confirm that she was the illegitimate daughter of Foster Gibson (he was named as her father on her 1891 marriage record) and Jane Copeland (Sarah was named as her daughter on the 1899 record of death for Jane) but for the life of me I cannot find a birth record for Sarah.

Moving on in years we know that Sarah married Francis Delahunt in 1891 and census records show that she gave birth to a daughter sometime around 1886, I believe that Francis may have been the father but I cannot find a birth record for her, on later records Ellen uses both her mothers maiden and married name (Gibson & Delahunt) but I still cannot see her birth record.

Any suggestion or help in finding these records would be most appreciated - GedB

You are correct with both of those for Pat and Anthony Broderick and as for the Henaghan children well they either moved or died before the 1901 census which complicates matters a bit but certainly makes the search interesting. There is an article in "The Famine in Mayo" published by the Mayo County Library that shows Pat Henaghan with a total of six in the family was amongst many evicted from Aughadrinah in 1847 and then settled in Mount Daisy so we possibly have the full family - GedB

It is strange when someone gives you a nudge in a certain direction and then everything seems to fall into place, you mentioned the 1892 death of Pat Henahan  in Mount Daisy and it was perfect with Pat Broderick being the informant, this made me look back in the cancelled land valuation book copies I have and I could see that Pat Broderick took over a plot of land in Mount Daisy from Mary Henaghan in 1901, a quick search and we came up with an 1899 record of death for Mary Henaghan in Mount Daisy with Mary Broderick as the informant so everything fell into place perfectly, well almost perfectly Pat Henahan is recorded as a widower on his record but I think that was an error as the family link is just right, Mary (Broderick) Henaghan was the aunt of Pat Broderick so thank you very much, just need to start looking for details of the children now. - GedB

You look to be absolutely spot on with that one heywood as the name Pat Broderick comes up in the family a couple of times. The awkward bit (for me at least) is that we are searching this branch from the oldest link forward because we really do not where this branch of the family panned out to.

The only confirmed details we have are the five baptism records and that is probably down to four because the name Mary seems to have been used twice, form then onwards it is name and place associations.

heywood you were correct a bit earlier when you said it was confusing, I am searching for details on Patt Henaghan who married Mary Broderick sometime in the mid 1830s, we have baptism records from Castlebar for five children with the parents being named correctly, Mary 1839, Patt 1844, Mary 1846, Anne 1847 and Bridget 1852 with Mount Daisy being mentioned just the once with Bridget and that is where the family were based, any details from then forward are quite confusing with multiple different spellings of the family name but we are slowly trawling through the records.
I have checked out the 1901 census you mentioned and so far have found one matching birth record that I need to check further with the mother named as Bridget Burke but there is no marriage record to Patt Henaghan coming to the surface yet.
Maiden Stone is correct about the abbreviation because the birth place is shown as Terry whereas the census is in Terryduff, you certainly live and learn.

Hiya Heywood, some of the other places on that record, Taurnagh - Ross - Muckanagh - Pollawarla (I think they are spelt correctly) are up to the north of Mayo so i had looked at both Terryduff and Terrybaun so that could well be the area although it seems strange for the registrar to leave half the name off.

The husband of Mary was called Pat and he is believed to have died in Kilmacrade in 1880 and the son mentioned on Marys death certificate was born in 1844 somewhere in the Aughadrinagh /Mount Daisy area where the family were based at that time.

I think that I will have to dig deeper around the Terryduff and Terrybaun areas.

Thanks - GedB
