Hi Sinann

There was an earlier Gottlieb Simon Kirchner.

The newspaper articles that I saw were for the 1790's.

Given that the other Louisa Kirchner married in St. Michael's, Limerick I wonder might there have been a change of religion.

I suggest you start to trawl though their records to see if you can find any other Kirchners there !

1851 census swansea age 20 born limerick
1859 birthcert of daughter louisa parker formerly kirchina
1861 census swansea age 31
1871 census swansea born 1833 limerick

there is also a strong possibility that she is down as louisa kiknon in 1841 but the date of birth doesnt tally

I have a Marie McKercher marrying in Dublin in 1825 in my tree.  I thought the name suggested Scottish background.

It was mentioned earlier that there is a record of Margaret Kirchener marrying Patrick Gahagan of in 1830 at St. Michaelís Limerick. She is described as a widow and I believe had been Simonís wife. In the 1841 census Patrick is to be found working as a tailor in Swansea with his wife Margaret and some children. Also in the household is someone transcribed as Louisa Kirknon of an age which fits with the Louisa Kirchner who marries Samuel Parker in 1848 in Swansea. I have checked the name Kirknon and it appears nowhere else! I believe Louisa was the son of Simon Kirchener the cabinet maker and that because he had died her elder brother Benjamin - who had moved to England and who was also a cabinetmaker - stood in for him.
