Bateman / Northern Ireland/ Melisina Bateman 1850
« on: Thursday 07 January 16 13:32 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I'm new here. I am trying to research Melisina Bateman born circa 1850, who married William Turner on 17/1/1867 in Ballinderry, Londonderry, Ireland. The marriage certificate has her father as Michal Bateman.

I don't have Melisina's date of birth, her mother or any siblings. The census 1901 has her place of birth as co Waterford (which I am assuming is in Northern Ireland)

Hopefully someone on roots chat has the same family and have more details?

Can you post the link to the Census?

The 1867 marriage took place in Tamlaght O'Crilly Upper Church of Ireland, notwithstanding that Melesina was noted as a minor, her occupation was recorded as teacher, she was living at the time in "Killygullib" (Glebe, the townland?), and her father Michael Bateman was described as a farmer. 

BTW, County Waterford is nowhere near the marriage and 1901 / 1911 census locations, it is in (today) the Republic of Ireland, not Northern Ireland, it depends where specifically in County Waterford, but you are probably talking a couple of hundred miles distance.

Griffiths Valuation has 3 Waterford Bateman entries of which there are 2 references to Michael Batemans in the townlands of:

- Ballynagaulemore (Ballynagaul More), in the civil parish of Ringagonagh;
- Helvick, also in the civil parish of Ringagonagh.

Print date for that area was 1851 (on the money for Mel(l)isina's birth):

And the 1901 census shows a family still in the Helvick area, I wonder if related:

BTW, just wondering Irish Finder, what relation is Mel(l)isina to you and what other family information do you have ? (ie. to avoid any nugatory effort)  :)

I noticed a few other posts:

Are these folks connected to your family? Do we need to factor them in to our searches?
