Kelly,

As Ireland was part of Great Britain at the time, there are no records unless he was a sailor.

What you might want to do though to add a bit of interest to this family is to research around why they might have immigrated at that time.  Were there other families that came from the same county in Ireland to Hull?  What were the occupations (in Ireland and in Hull)?  What was going on at the time they left Ireland that might make them want to immigrate?  Did any other family members immigrate at the same time, before or after?  Did they settle in an area where other Irish families lived?

I've done this with my Yorkshire Irish families and it is really interesting.  I am unable to track my families back to Ireland, so this is a way of filling out the information about them.

Kooly,

If they had a baby post 1864 in Ireland, the birth should have been registered so you could find the town and parish and go back from there.

Similarly for a marriage.

Where are you stuck Corinne?

Hi Kate,
            Sorry for not replying, Ive just noticed your post.  The reference to other families moving to the same area is yes.  I have three Bradley families living down the same street in Hull in the 1880 Census, and all seem to have arrived at the about the same time.  In the census their occupation varied from Insurance agents, labourers and scavengers.

Back in Ireland they had two children, Joseph Bradley and Ann Bradley, what area i dont know.  If you could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

             Regards   kooly...

Hi, there If you have no idea where in Ireland your ancestors are from I have found this site of use using the Griffiths Valuation to show where a particular surname is distributed in Ireland:

Hope it helps

Hi Ticker,
              Chapman St, there was a lot of Irish in that area in the 71/81 census. Most of the females worked in the starch works, Reckitt & Coleman.
