Bally Broughan - Dockery/Haden
« on: Saturday 20 August 11 17:03 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any record of Dockery and Haden family from County Roscommon.  I do not have a lot to go on so any hints/tips would be greatly appreciated!

John Dockery married Jane Haden.  I have them from the 1841 census onwards in Birmingham, England.  On the census it says they were from Barry Brothen/Brother Roscommon.  I think this could be Bally Broughan.  I know that Jane's father was Michael Haden, I have this from her 2nd marriage cert.  John & Jane's first child was born in about 1827 in Birmingham and John & Jane's ages make them born around 1800-1805.

I have all census info after 1841 and am desperate to know more about their roots.

I am at a complete loss as to where to go from here!

Regards, Ann-Marie

The births of Jane and John and any possible marriage are well before the start of civil records, so you would have to check what church records are available for the area they lived.

Do you know what denomination they were ?

the previous thread states they are likely RC.

Ballybroghan is in the civil parish of Kilcooley, which is covered by the RC parish of Ogulla. Historic baptism and marriage records for this parish only go back to 1865.

see : RC Parish of Ogulla (Irish Times)

Thanks Shane.  I did just reply to your post but I don't know what happened to it??
Anyway, yes they were RC.  I see I am going to keep struggling with this one.  I hope I have the right area, like I say the census shows it as Barry Brother/Brothen so I am guessing this is the closest to that.

Will have a look at your links. Thanks  :D

The parish of Ogulla existed back to at least 1839 - although listed as 'Ogala'. So it looks like either they were not keeping written records back that far, or they have not survived.
