Lanarkshire / Re: Looking for John Stewart, born circa 1868 Lanarkshire
« on: Tuesday 11 January 22 13:51 GMT (UK)  »
Yes, I did check the 1869 John Stewart, but his parents were not Walter Stewart and Sophia Strain. These are the parents I am looking for. They are in the 1871 census, with son John, but I cannot find John's birth.

Lanarkshire / Looking for John Stewart, born circa 1868 Lanarkshire
« on: Tuesday 04 January 22 17:33 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying, so far in vain, to find the birth (or baptism) of John Stewart, born (according to the 1871 census) around 1868, in Anderston, Lanarkshire. His parents were Walter Stewart and Sophia Strain. Help will be appreciated.

I have the marriage certificate of Edward Charles SEEGER and Jessie MANLEY, who married on 14 March 1875 in Bethnal Green. The address of the man is given as "3 31 Wellington House" and of the wife as "8 4 ditto". The couple had two children prior to this marriage: Edward, born 1869 Bethnal Green, and Jessie, born 1874 Bethnal Green. After their marriage, they got 5 more children.

I was wondering whether any of you know what Wellington House was. I do not see it in the listings of Poor Houses. Thank you for any suggestion what accommodation this pair lived in.

Down / Re: birth/baptism sought of Arthur Fagan, around 1852 C. Down

I looked through both, for th period 1847 to 1852, without success.

I saw no gaps in the Kilcoo baptism register. However, the regular and quite readable handwriting suggests to me that this is a later copy of the original register. No Arthur Fegan found, alas.

Yes, but I do not see his birth or baptism on rootsireland.ie
Are there other sites where I may have better luck?

The earliest mention of the family I have found is in the 1871 census of England. The address there is Worthington Street, Toxteth Park. In Liverpool, the children are baptized in St Patrick Church.
The child before Arthur and the one following him have been baptized in Liverpool, but I do not find Arthur there, and the 1871 census gives his place of birth as "Ireland".

Down / birth/baptism sought of Arthur Fagan, around 1852 C. Down
« on: Monday 13 December 21 12:08 GMT (UK)  »
The couple Arthur Fegan (also spelled Fagan) and Catharine McClory married on 18-10-1839 in Newry, Co. Down. They get 13 children: first four in Annaghlone, Co Down (1841-1845), then four in Liverpool (1847-1854), and finally five in  Kilcoo, Co. Down.
I have found RC baptism records for all but one: Arthur, named after his father, who according to the census record of 1871 was born circa 1852 in Liverpool. Her married 8 July 1872 in Liverpool with Elizabeth Downes. Any help in finding the birth or baptism of this Arthur will be greatly appreciated.

Down / Re: Marriage of Hugh Fegan and Mary Morgan, ca. 1809? Southtown

Thank you, oldohiohome! That will keep me busy for a while. I doubt the ancestors I am looking for owned land; several of the children went to England, to work in the Liverpool docks. Not very wealthy, I expect.
