Monaghan / Owen Duffy & Teresa McAree Wedding
« on: Friday 09 July 21 12:13 BST (UK)  »
On my 2 times great grandparents wedding certificate it says "Banns: Banns dispensed by the Bishop"
Can anyone help me with a definition? Owen's mother in law was a Duffy and his uncle also married a
McAree. Could it be a family connection?


I am looking for Paul Allen living in Westminster, 1841. I don't have a lot of information but I do know there was a Paul Allen who died in Donegal, 1872. According to his death certificate he was 82 and would have been born in 1791, not sure if this is the same Paul Allen but he was a saddler which could help and in 1833 had a son Paul Allen and married a Mary Allen, no maiden name given.

He was part of the Church  of Ireland which is similar to the Church of England. I have the link below if anyone can help find any information, thanks

I think I had a great aunt Mona Kane married Peter Maginnis in New York, possibly in the 1920's. All I know is they had 3 children. One of the sons went to New Jersey. I have Mona's birth certificate and I can't find the marriage certificate through Ireland.

I don't have access to view the wedding certifcate if anyone could help

Donegal / Looking for the Church of Ireland in Burt
« on: Friday 18 June 21 16:10 BST (UK)  »
I am related to Allens from Burt. My 3 times great grandfather married a catholic. (Already have details). It says there was a Paul Allen who died in 1872. I found a record of his son, Paul Allen. The father (Paul) was a saddler as was William. I believe that Paul was William's father.

Paul Allen is listed as the Church of Ireland in 1833 living in Mullanboys, married to Mary, no maiden name given. I also found found an Eleanor Allen who died in 1877 Burt, however her husband was a sailor. Not sure who the husband is.

Can someone help me identify were the present day Church of Ireland would be? I just want to know where the grave yards are. I think COI become a resturant in the 1970's. 

Dunbartonshire / Allens and Mulherns in Kilpatrick
« on: Thursday 10 June 21 13:03 BST (UK)  »

My great great grandparents moved to Scotland, before moving back to Derry. Annie Mulhern (Allen) was living in Old or West Kilpatrick. Annie Mulhern had 2 brothers, William and John. There is a William Allen living in Old or West Kilpatrick. I believe this to be the brother as Annie Mulhern lives in the same area, John Allen lives New or East Kilpatrick, this could be the other brother.

I have the census information from 1901 but I can't any information for William, John or Mary in 1911. Thats why I think they are living in Scotland in 1911.

Would anyone be able to give me some advice e.g. church's in the areas e.g. Catholic? I have tried Scotlands People but I want to be sure I am right about William and John. I am unsure about Mary Allen, the sister

Donegal / William Allen, Burt Donegal
« on: Monday 10 May 21 19:37 BST (UK)  »
William Allen (3 times great grandfather) married Ellen Collins, the children were all born in Donegal and rasied catholic. When I type in Allen on the census the Allens for Burt come up as Presbyterian. I think William is a catholic, not sure if William Allen is related to the same Allens in Burt. (grea great grany's birth)

Only information I have, I cant find Williams wedding certificate

Not sure if this is the same family but my 3 times great grandmother, Jane Magee married Patrick Kane. At my 2 times great granfather wedding certificate a James and Maggie Fitzsimmons, the wedding was taken place in Saul.

I beleive this to Patrick Kanes sr. death certificate, it says a James Flitzsimmons is present at his death

James Flitzsimmons 1901 census

Patrick Kanes wedding certificate

John Magee a step son to Fitzsimons (Janes' brother?)
I think this is the same John in the 1911 census

Not sure if John and Cornelius would be in the same family as Jane. Would Janes mother maybe have remarried to the Fitzsimmons?
