Just updating this as have a bit more time these days to look at this.

On Ancestry have approx 200 DNA matches in this group now.I know that US based people seem to make up the majority of tests on Ancestry but even so I think its unusual that not one shared match (from available trees/locations) seem to be from outside US.
Presume that's why the ethnicity part shows so little Irish.

Unusually for my matches on Ancestry anyone in this group seems to have 10/15 plus shared matches with me, even those who are in the 10cM to 20cM range.Click on a 15cM match and they can have 20 or more shared matches for me.
Have contacted a fair few and any who replied had no idea of any possible Irish connection.

One other thing that stands out for me is that all apart from 1 match have only one shared segment. Whether this indicates anything I have no idea.
Tried the building a tree bit but as Irish records cease to exist around 1800 and really are sparse pre 1820 or so its really leads nowhere.

i don't think I will solve this through records from my Irish side and looking at available trees online not too sure re. US ones.
More looking for someone who understands DNA matching etc who might give an indication as to what/how far back a connection might be.

English marriages are searchable online via freebmd but online access to the actual marriage certs varies greatly from county to county.

Thanks for that.Really would need to order and pay for cert so.
Don't think I need confirmation enough to go that far as its a family line that's mostly finished.

Perhaps its me being cautious but wanted to make sure the Philip Brennan marrying in Essex in 1918 to Dorothea Everitt is the same person as "my"Philip Brennan born 08 08 1895 in Dublin .
Yes I know the birth dates are the same but perhaps that may be coincidence.

All I have to go on that my Philip Brennan married the above named lady is an online tree which the person who compiled it said she just took the details from a hint on Ancestry.She was unsure as to the whether we had the same person as her interest was in the bride ie Dorothea Everitt.

What I know for certain about him is date of birth (8th August 1895 in Dublin to James Brennan RIC policeman and Kate Donovan),residence at death (  128 Woolstone Road Forest Hill London S E 23) date of death (2nd December 1963) and burial place (Hither Green Cemetery).

The point of my post was if I could find his marriage cert details online which would confirm (fathers name/occupation) that they were one and the same person.

Maybe am too used to Irish civil records which are searchable online for free.

Thanks.

Didn't actually see that.

Everything fits including his occupation but really would like to be certain to be honest.
Know his parents ,grandparents  names plus have birth entry in Irish civil register.Also his death and burial /grave number details from his memory card.

As far as I know he had a son which also corresponds with detail in an online tree but have seen enough assumptions in online trees to have a modicum of scepticism.

Ok looked at 1939 register on Ancestry (basic sub.) and see Philip and Dorothea Brennan living at 38 St. Aidans Road ,Camberwell.
Birth date (8th August 1895) is the same as "my" Philip Brennan.

Facts fit so far but ?
Will have to look further to confirm that this is the person from my tree.Know he was baptised R.C although not too sure if he married in a church or not.

Again apologies but have no idea whats available online regarding UK records.Are Parish records available online ?

Essex Lookup Requests / Marriage Record Details

Wondering if anyone could help re. details on a marriage record.

Looking for details regarding the groom from a marriage recorded as January 1918 in Billericay ,Essex.
The parties were Philip Anthony Brennan and Dorothea Gladys Everitt.She was married previously I think in 1914 to a ? Farrell.Details were from an online tree so unsure if its the same person.

Am interested in the grooms details to confirm or reject him as the same Philip Anthony Brennan in my family tree.
"My" Philip Anthony Brennan was born 8th August 1895 in Dublin to James Brennan (policeman) and Catherine(Kate )Donovan and died 2nd December 1963  128 Woolstone Road Forest Hill London S E 23 and buried in Hither Green Cemetery on 6th December 1963.
