Birth details - Costigan
« on: Saturday 27 March 04 23:48 GMT (UK) »
I have tracked a line in my husbands tree to Ireland.

Both William Costigan and wife Mary living in Stepney 1871 census were b. Ireland.

As they were both aged 24 this makes their year of birth around 1844.

I believe I have found a ref for their marriage at St George in the East 1862.

I have no idea how to find their birth info as this is the first foray into Irish research to date.

Any help you can give would be much appreciated

Thank you

Diane

Hi Diane

Sorry we haven't been able to help you so far on this one. 

Have you made any progress,  or do you have any further details that could help someone to find what you are looking for?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi there Ticker

No haven't made any further progress with this one. It's my husbands paternal side so not one I have been actively researching for a while.

Thanks Diane

Hi,

I would try to find them on the 1861 census first as it may give a county, parish or townland name. Buy the marriage cert and check those addresses in 1861 for more information.

Regards

Hi Kate,

Funnily enough I think I may have found him in 1861 Stepney, just this week, but birth place is down as Stepney, found a birth ref. When I'm flush :) I am going to invest in it and see if it's him. His mother is a widow in 1861 so I can't definately know if it is him. But too much coincidence not to be interesting.

Thanks Diane
