My Sinnott side is from Nicholas Sinnott and his wife Mary formerly bryne.  They had a son edward in 1839. Their grandson came over in 1900 and settled in Connecticut.

You need to know where in Wexford they came from.
Who was the grandson's parents, did they remain in Ireland and if so have you found them in the 1901 Census?
Have you found the grandson's birth?

and his parent's marriage?

 The only Sinnott in Wexford Town in the 1800s who was in the fabric business
 (that I can find ) was Charlotte Sinnott ,Draper of Main St. Wexford.

Charlotte Sinnott is a wee bit of a mystery.   There is a death and probate record Charlotte, spinster dying  21 may 1915 (death cert place Rockfield, Wexford, probate gives address as of South Main St, which matches with census records, and late of Rockfield House).  Her birthdate from these records could be anything from around 1850 to 1853, however the only birth I can find at all is one in 1847 (if she died a spinster with no family around, then perhaps age at death was only estimated).  Probate was granted to administrators Hugh M'Carthy Hotel Proprietor and Elizabeth hore Widow.

If she is the one born in 1847, then it is this microfilm https://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000634138#page/1/mode/1up    born 28 jan, bap 29 jan 1847 in Wexford, diocese of Ferns to parents James SINNOTT and Anne CULLIMORE.  There are two earlier children to the same parents:  Robert (15/16 feb 1841) and Daniel (13 jul 1843).  I can't actually find anything more about this family at the moment though.
