Armed Forces / WFrancis Moynagh 1st & 2nd Bat 1st Foot 1823
« on: Monday 12 August 19 10:24 BST (UK)  »
Francis enlisted into the 2nd Battalion in Dublin in June 1823 and was discharged in 1844 as unfit.  I am seeking any information regarding his service and marriage as I know he had two sons Francis 1939 (he also served with the 1st Foot) and William 1844.  I have tried other sources regarding his marriage unsucesfully and wondered wether this information may be in his military record should it exist.  Hoping someone may be able to help.

Thanks for everything so far.  The marriage certificate states William Carrigan aka Carrington married Eleanor Argent on 24 August 1840 in St James Church, Walton on the Hill, Lancashire.  Fathers names given as Hugh Carrigan (Plasterer) aka Carrington and John Argent (Shoe Maker).
I have, however, ben unable to trace the fathers.

Thanks for that. I found Edward Mulholland Carrigan's death in 1932 with a stated age of 67 giving a potential birth in 1865.  However his birth was registered in 1858 in the 3rd qtr Liverpool, Lancashire, England 8B 199 making his age 74 and this year is stated in the England census.  This is confusing.

Thanks. I can't find a birth for John Edward but there is a marriage for Edward Mullholland Carrigan to Phoebe Oakden on 14 August 1881 in Liverpool (8b 221) - Edwards name is given as Carrington.

There are no death registered for the Carragans in England after 1881 neither do they appear on the 1891 census so the plot thickens.
I still cannot find their births.

The 1871 census has them living at Birchfield Street, Liverpool, Lancashire, England.
The 1881 census has them living at Elm Road Woodhey, Higher Bebington, Wirral, Cheshire, England.
William is a Plasterer birth year 1821.
Elenor no employment birth year 1823.
The birth years are the same for both years.
Whilst ages on the census are not always accurate they make more sense with an 1840 marriage.  Clearly if the death of Elenor is correct then I have the wrong persons death.
Thanks for that.

Antrim / William Carrigan circa 1821 Belfast
« on: Sunday 21 July 19 11:05 BST (UK)  »
I am seeking information on the ancestors of William Carriagan and his wife Eleanor Argent.  William was born circa 1821 in Belfast his father being possibly Charles or Hugh.  Eleanor was born about 1823 in Hillhall, Lisburn, Co. Down (details from the England Census).  They were married in 1840 in Toxteth Park, Lancashire, England.William died in 1890 in Belfast and Eleanor died in 1893 in Belfast (I have found these on the NI website).
Regretfully my research has been unable to find any more detail before the birth days given so any help or advice will be most welcome.

Thanks for that.  I have found 2 other siblings but no sign of the parents births or marriage.  There was a suggestion of another sibling, William, but no luck.  Any further suggestions much appreciated.
