Ireland / Re: Require help with 'Clisham' element of my family tree...!!
« on: Wednesday 13 June 07 00:07 BST (UK)  »
Good Evening,

Firstly, thanks Maryderry for your help.

Vabre, it's funny you should say that....The potential matches for John Clisham I've found, do indeed hail from the Galway area. Secondly, it crossed my mind about an hour ago that she might actually be from England, and not Ireland (Although, the 1891 UK Census states her as being Irish. ??)

Now, there are a few Glues in the Hampshire/ Surrey area, and John Clisham is listed as being a member of crew aboard a ship that is docked in the Hampshire area within the 1861 UK Census.

So, what does the Griffith's Valuation give you in terms of info?

I have a number of Irish ancestors from various branches of my tree. If I have a vague idea of their origin, can I search for them on this Griffith's Valuation database?

Regards

Paul

Thanks Alison,

Actually, I had found entries for a John Clisham in the 1861 and 1871 English Census, who was also a sailor.

However, on my Great Grandmother's wedding Certificate, he's listed as being a Shoe Maker.

Quite confused, as he obviously travelled around, what with having his first child in Jersey, his second in Dublin, then his third in Curragh Camp, Kildare. Perhaps he might have been a sailor, then became a shoe maker on settling down somewhere?

Any other suggestions as to how I can increase my chances of getting any further???!!!!!

Ireland / Re: marriage/marriage banns
« on: Tuesday 12 June 07 14:05 BST (UK)  »
Afternoon,

Apparantley, 'Marriage by Banns' was a process by which the intention to marry would be announced at the couple's local church during  a Sunday serviceover a period of three weeks prior to the wedding, and was intended to give anybody the opportunity to object against the marriage if they so desired. All being okay, I think the couple would then marry on the 3rd Sunday.

Something along those lines!!!

Regards

Afternoon All,

Not long been researching the family tree (2 months), but have a number of lines that hail from Ireland. At present, tring to gain info and work backwards from the following set of great, great grandparents:

John Clisham (Born 1843, Died September 1894, Liverpool)   and Ellen Clisham (Nee Glue - Born 1858). Both were Irish. Unfortunately, don't have much more info than that, other than two of their children were born Ireland, these being:

Sarah 1879 (Dublin)

Mary Ellen 12th Feb, 1880 (Curragh Camp), Kildare (My Great grandmother)

They had relocated to Liverpool by 1891, as on that Census.

Also had an elder son William John, born in St. Helier, Jersey in 1878, who died in Liverpool in 1899.

Any help, however small would be greatly appreciated...

Regards

Paul

Afternoon,

Cheers for all the help everyone! Much appreciated. Another quick question though(Okay, perhaps two)....!!!

The IG index: If I find a potential match within it, how do I go about viewing the original document? Is this actually possible, and will it show any more detail than is listed from a search online ie. Name of a Church where, say, a christening took place? Would I have to go down to my nearest Family History Centre?

Cheers!

Paul

Hello Pinetree,

How do you search the IGI Index? This sounds promising, however, there seems to be a discrepancy in the birth year by up to about 5 years. On various census returns, her birth year is stated as 1801, 1803, 1805, 1806 and one even as 1811 !!!

I think I read something about how they used to round up to the nearest 5 years?? Is this the case?

It's surprising how much clearer the text became after scanning it and altering the colour!!

Paul
