1. Does anyone know were in Irelnad i can get Shipping records from the people that left Drogheda to go to america about 1845 1860 time periods ?
....
2. William and his son James were at sea from 1846 - 1851 how do i find there records ?

3......or is there a way i can get a baptism record for st marys church drogheda from 1820s to 1830 or is there any other sources for that tiem period ?

1. Few records remain of people leaving Ireland. It's usually better to try for arrival records in the US, although with such an early date these are likely to be difficult to locate and lacking much detail.

2. Most maritime records from this time would be in London - e.g. National Archives (Kew)

3. Assume you mean the RC St. Mary's - there is also a CofI parish with the same name. St. Mary's RC has baptism records back to 1835, no other earlier baptism records are known to exist for the parish.

These records are available in the National Library in Dublin (Film Pos. 4180), and LDS (Film 0926169). Transcripts of these records are also available on the pay-website at RootsIreland - note these appear under Co. Meath, which is where the parish is based.
