Patrick Cleary appears to have married as Patrick Carey in York in 1875 to Mary Laffey.

All of their children listed in 1891 where Carey/Laffey combinations.

Now I'm wondering whether they actually were Cleary's after all!!

I have his birth certificate which matches his date of birth in 1939 - but just purely guessing (hoping) that this is him in 1891 - County Mayo and age match.

Just need to find and identify his 'uncle' Patrick now!!

Aha...great, thank you, and his year of birth reduced too!

Can't find a marriage or a single birth registration of his children either  ??? ???

Hi

Can anyone trace this person and his family before and after 1891?
Patrick Cleary - born County Mayo, Ireland c1860
Mary Cleary - born York, Yorkshire c1856
Children;
Michael born Thornley, Durham c 1877
Anthony born Willington, Durham c1881
Mary M born Willington, Durham c1884
Thomas born Willington, Durham c 1886
Ann born Willington, Durham c1888
Patrick born Willington, Durham c1890

The 1891 census finds the family living in 29 High Street, Willington where Patrick was a coke drawer.
With them was a 'nephew' Patrick Cleary, also from Mayo, ireland who was 19 years of age.
I believe that he was the son of John Cleary and his wife, Mary Kilroy who had married in Newport, Mayo on the 9th February 1866.
Patrick (1872) stayed in England, marrying Mary Ann O'Neil in Hull in 1902 - the 1939 register giving his date of birth as 30th April 1872, which matches his birth certificate, naming his parents as John and Mary.

John's father was Dominick Cleary born c1797 (died 1883 aged 86 years), and his mother was Ellen, (also died 1883, aged 88 years), so I can't believe that Patrick (1860), was Patrick's (1872) uncle.

Can anyone trace this family in 1881 or even 1901 and 1911?

Thanks

Ok...so got copy marriage certificate between James William Tulloch and Eliza Jane Butler (Burns). She named her father as being James Butler (deceased - he was, dying in 1901), a glass maker. One of the witnesses was a Peter Butler, her half brother.
James Butler was her stepfather, her mother married him in 1884.
So, I'm guessing she was born as 'Burns' but has assumed her stepfather's surname, but used her original surname when registering her children's births!

So confusing!!

Thanks everyone for all your help - I'm convinced that Eliza Jane Butler was born Elizabeth Jane Burns and has 'assumed' her stepfather's name, but still struggling to comfirm.

Thanks

I Know!

However, I checked to see when James Butler married Elizabeth (Eliza's mother), and he did so in Sunderland in 1884, two years after his Eliza's birth.
Elizabeth married as Elizabeth Keeling - their first child, John, born in 1885, has mother's maiden name of 'Keeling.'
