Wexford / Re: New Ross Workhouse
« on: Tuesday 29 June 21 04:14 BST (UK)  »
I don't believe you will find any additional information from the Workhouse.

The extant records are described at
http://wexfordcountyarchive.com/our-collections/local-government-archives/

For New Ross, the minute books are basically all that survive - no admission or discharge registers.

Many of the minute books are digitized and available online

However, as already pointed out by others, Workhouse births and deaths were registered as normal in the Civil Registration system.

Looking at census 1901 and 1911 there are a number of Hastings families in Kilkee in County Clare, and one person has the First name "Senan". If your bride was 19 in 1879 she was born in 1860 but civil registration did not start in Ireland until 1864, so the birth can only be searched in church baptism records.  Its late for me here (in Ireland) now but I will try to search further tomorrow.

Senan it is! Should have thought of that!
St. Senan was a local saint from Co. Clare. Would have been popular name locally, I am sure.

Ireland / Re: Irish VO Revision Books going online?
« on: Wednesday 23 June 21 22:12 BST (UK)  »
The LDS/Mormons photographed the cancelled "rates books" decades ago, and made them available via microfilm.

As the LDS have moved their records to online access, I presume that one can view their copies online?
(A question, as I have not checked).

There were actually three Sinon HASTINGS in the same area, two with wives named Bridget.  One was born c1806 and died in 1880, and the two with wives named Bridget died in 1887 (born c1825) and 1908 (born c1839).

Thanks for the suggestions, I will pass them on.

Ireland / Re: Irish beginner - and Goldenbridge Industrial School

Reviving this old thread because my cousin has now sent his parents' GRO marriage certificate to the Irish government to try to obtain citizenship,  but the people there are saying they need to see the "original". Of course the original is long lost, but will they accept the version provided by the registration district, to wit Paddingtion (now part of Westminster)?

It doesn't help that the link from FreeBMD to the Westminster page produces a 404 error.

I am confused. A fully certified GRO copy is legal evidence. This has always been accepted.
Your cousin needs to query this.  Obviously the "original" can never be supplied, as it is in a register book, that will never leave the registry office.

Which GRO are you talking about?

I suspect that something is missing in this story. Perhaps your cousin mailed off a photocopy of the GRO registration, rather than a certified copy? The Irish Passport/Citizenship Office requires certified copies, and probably calls the certified copy an "original".

The attached extract is from an 1879 marriage registration in New South Wales.
The bride was Margaret Hastings, age 19, born in Ireland.
Two questions:
1. Where was she born? Says "Kilkeen", but that must be a distorted version of somewhere.
2. What is the Christian name of her father?

Thanks in advance.

Ireland / Re: leases renewable forever
« on: Wednesday 16 June 21 20:44 BST (UK)  »
Methinks you are on a wild goose chase. You are misunderstanding/misinterpreting.
The "lease renewable forever"  **IS** almost certainly a lease of lives, one renewable forever.

I'm not sure if I understand what you mean (or how that would work)

It has been explained several times over within this thread.  The lease is for lives. When a life dies, another life can be nominated to replace the deceased life That is what makes it renewable forever.

this is a listing in the Ordnance Survey Names Book that says "lease renewable forever," ie. this is not a lease of lives.

hi wexflyer thanks for info about unregistered births likely whats happened the marriage was in England a Roman Catholic wedding 17 feb 1940 St Anslems Church Spital St Dartford it says father of the groom James O'Toole  Profession Farmer and have a copy of death cert which states dob 13th sep 1912 Irish Republic his death 29 jan 1980 Gravesend Kent do you think the 1921 census will reveal his place of birth when it is released thanks for your help & input

There is no 1921 census.  Unless you mean the English one.
As for the wedding, I don't mean the civil registration record, I mean the actual church register, which often has the mother's name, which is not on the civil registration record.
