help with placenames Kilmear and Slatefield
« on: Tuesday 23 June 15 12:26 BST (UK) »
Hi Can anyone help to identify the place and County my 3 x g grandparents are from. They are on England census in 1861 birthplace Kilmear, Ireland and then in 1911 as Slatefield Ireland. all other census records just state Ireland as the birthplace. They are John Riley b 1820 and Mary Shea b 1822.
Many thanks
J Mol

Hi,
   Closest which I can find is Slatefield in Loughrea in Co. Galway and KILMEEN in Loughrea Co. Galway.

Hi

I'd imagine Kilmear is Killimor - only a short distance from Loughrea.

Cheers

It is a coincidence possibly but i searched Kilmare and Slatefield today as it seems my g.g.grandfather John. O’ Shea lived there after his marriage to Honorah Sullivan. My g.great Aunt stated originally she came from Kildare and then Herefordshire. However I found her christening and her parent’s marriage in Rathbone. In thev1911 census in wales she stated Slatefield as her birthplace. They all came over to Bristol in the early 1850s. They then moved to Herefordshire after the death of Honorah in Bristol in 1852. I ordered 2 death certificates originally of Norah or Honora but on getting them it was Honorah who had died in Bristol and Nora in Dilwyn . She was also married to a John oShea. In the 1961 census this John and Norah lived next door to  John and Mary Riley. I have a gut feeling that This my John O ‘Shea and this Mary Riley are related. They might also be related to my g.g.grandfather,

Hi Helen
yes I think that John Shea could possibly be the brother of Mary Shea who married John Riley as some of their children were also born in Bristol before they moved to Herefordshire. You mention a gg aunt, what was her name? was she the daughter of John Shea and Honora? did he marry again then if the first Honora died in Bristol in 1852? What are the details of her parents marriage in Rathbone (where is that?) Thanks
