Thanks yeah I have tried to decipher the father and it does look like Robert, this birth is in Govan same place as John was born. Can I post it here to show you. I do display the copyright notification.
Are you saying this is the baby that died?

I have bought the image from Scotland's people for the birth of Michael Connelly. Father is shown as Robert Connolly, a labourer and a Bachelor. Bridget is shown as maiden name Connolly. I think Bridget has been a bit naughty had an affair with Robert, Michael being the result. Gregory has as it seems been very forgiving and took the family to the north east and bring Michael up as his own. I can't make out the address as transcript is very difficult to read. That would be interesting to see if it is the same address as John. Was definitely Govan going by the IGI batch number.

Bishopwearmouth is the main cemetery for the area of Millfield where most of the family seemed to have lived at some point. At the time of his death William Michael was living in Wilson Street about half a mile from cemetery. I will look into this and my next visit to Sunderland in April I will go and find his grave. I wonder as the family moved to South Tyneside at different times whether Gregory or Bridget had brothers and sisters living there. There seem to be quite a few Connellys in the area. That will be my next job.
Once again ladies you have been absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much.

You are both so good for giving up your time to help me. I am certainly not as quick as you at finding stuff.  This looks great and they do fit in with the Millfield connection. Why they were in Jarrow is intriguing but I reckon they must have gone there for work. Gregory as I can see died in Hepburn but buried in Bishopwearmouth which is the cemetery close to the Wilson Street area. Perhaps Gregory was Michael Gregory or Gregory Michael.

Michael Conelly 50 labourer b. Ireland
Bridget Conelly 45 b. Ireland
Anthoney Conelly 22 Riveter b. Jarrow, Durham
Jane Conelly 21 son's wife
Michael Conelly 28 Riveter b Scotland
Peter Conelly 22 Riveter b. Jarrow, Durham
Mary J Conelly 22 son's wife
John Conelly 29 Riveter b. Jarrow, Durham (looks like birth place confused with wife's)
Mary L Conelly 26 son's wife b. Scotland

would there be a possibility that he could have been added to two censuses, one in Sunderland and the other in Jarrow same as Anthony. It looks like dad has just said they are the members of our family and might occasionally live here lol.

Monica, I think you could be right with the family Gregory may have been his step dad, possibly the only dad he knew. I think Robert could have died and mother remarried. I will try and find a marriage for Robert and Bridget.
Thanks Loobylooayr I realised that, still  thinking Scotland. It's becoming a saga isn't it 😂😂

On 1891 census it doesn't actually say where he was born. Normally would have DO underneath if born in same town. Box is blank? All the other census say Scotland.

Hi the Michael I found living as a lodger in Catherine Street with the Hutton family. Spelling was Connolly. Aged 30 - age is more or less correct. Same profession, riveter.

Oh ladies you are amazing, thank you all so so much for your continued searching. Sorry have been at work so haven't been able to access this. I am if not lost with all your fab work. I am going to have a search at the Sunderland area for a different spelling of Connelly, there seems to be so many different ones. John Connolly in St Joseph's area is still the best to start on for me as I know the area very well. Might be able to source something. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you, I am so so grateful 😀
Loobylooayr yes I agree with those spellings have all the census since 1881 and they have been a nightmare to find. I have him on 1891 census on his own living with a family. I will confirm soelling when I go back to my tree x
