did John and Katherine have any other children ?


Sarah is the only child on the 1891 and 1901 English censuses.

do you know Katherine Roche's maiden name

No, afraid not. If I did I would be able to locate the marriage record for John and Katherine.
My main objective is to find that marriage record, as that will then hopefully give me his father's name.

Have you checked out the unnamed "female" Roache born in the last quarter of 1879 in Dublin South?

I can't spot one in Dublin North registration district but have come across several example of unnamed children born at the Rotunda, sometimes with variations on the family name, where the staff have registered the child within a few days of birth.  I understand that this was to avoid a fine for the child later being unregistered.  I don't know what year this came in and how generally other institutions applied it but I have at least one in the early 1880s in my family and it also happened at my mother's birh as late as 1919.

Yes, I did. As you say, some of the hospitals seem to make a habit of registering babies without names, but still no joy...
Thanks anyway.

Dublin / Need help with finding records for Sarah Roche born Dublin ca 1879/80
« on: Monday 02 May 11 00:15 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to link back a Roche family of Bootle (Liverpool), with my Roches of Co. Wexford, so far without success, despite years of effort. On the English 1891 census Sarah Roche is shown as 11 years old, parents John and Katherine Roche.  Sarah Roche is shown as born in Dublin, while her parents are both Co. Wexford.
So, far, so good, but then the problems start:
1) No Sarah Roche, with parents as above in Dublin civil registration up to and including 1880, per searches through LDS microfilms and online indices.
2) Indeed, no matching Sarah Roche birth anywhere in Ireland in civil registration!
3) No Sarah Roche birth in online Catholic parish records for Dublin.
4) Have not been able to find parents marriage either!
Any suggestions for what to do next, or what other resources to try.


Wexford / Re: meyler's from wexford?...please help...
« on: Sunday 01 May 11 01:30 BST (UK)  »
i wonder if anyone can be of any help to me and my mum. we have been searching for my Great Grandfather William Christopher Meyler who was born in 1894/5 we believe in Wexford. .

Thankyou in anticipation of any help

The Index to Irish civil registration birth records is available online. It shows 4 births for William Meyler in Co. Wexford in the 1890s. Are you saying that you checked these four and they are none are the right one? Also, not clear to me why it would take you hours looking at records in Ireland, as looking up the index is a matter of seconds.

As I understand it the Wexford Genealogy Centre is currently closed and has been for some time, even though their website seems to makes no mention of this fact!!!

It's disturbing that material like this is sent to these organistions who decide to not make the records available to researchers but instead charge a fee for a 'professional' researcher to do the look ups. These registers should at least be microfilmed first & made available at the libraries.

1) Many registers were never microfilmed by the National Library of Ireland. I know of 3 such registers myself within the diocese of Ferns.
2) All too many of the microfilms which do exist are unreadable. The NLI photography seems to have been to a very poor standard, and simply did not cater for faint originals. (There are not so special special techniques for faint originals). Somewhere between a quarter and a half of what was microfilmed should be redone.
3) Registers continue to be lost. See my original query above, and the disquieting comment from a distant relative in Enniscorthy a few years back that an original register from one of the parishes he was interested in was missing, believed to have been buried with the late PP as a head rest in his coffin...

following nickr90's directions I found the lane marked on the c1890s 25" map - see : Paradise Row


Thank you very much, much obliged. I guess I missed it previously as my expectation for what I was looking for was a road all the way to Grogan's raod, rather than a cul-de-sac.

there was a topic which discussed various lanes in the town, and included a description of where Paradise Row was located  - see Wexford Lanes


But I am afraid that that description relies on one knowing where Cory's Terrace is....


Wexford / Location of Paradise Row, Wexford, on OS maps
« on: Monday 25 April 11 21:37 BST (UK)  »
My great-grandfather lived for many years on Paradise Row, which is one of the vanished streets of Wexford.  I thought it would be relatively easy to find Paradise Row on the OS 1/25" maps of Wexford which are now available online. However, not so, did not spot the place, which I thought was in the vicinity of Grogan's Road.
Could someone provide a link to the OS maps, showing the location of Paradise Row?
