Travel from Co Clare to London in 1880
« on: Friday 11 May 18 02:04 BST (UK) »
Advice needed please on how might my Tuohy man from Co.Clare travelled  to London to  board the ship to Australia, rail to Dublin from Ennis??  This is the section I'm interested in.   Obviously ferry to Liverpool, rail to London.

"Obviously ferry to Liverpool, rail to London."

There were various other routes he could have taken...

Google...  Sailings England to Ireland  1880's     ...might be rewarding

Hi,
Was his name John?
Was he born in 1861?
Was his Mother's name Bridget?
(I found a record and she was the named person to have paid the deposit)
Did he travel on the Northampton?

 See Irish Genealogy Toolkit - page headed "Irish immigration to England". A column at side is "Crossing the Irish Sea".  "By 1885 London - Dublin sea-rail journey via Holyhead took 10 hours 20 minutes."

Thanks for  replies will follow up Maggsie - He was Cornelius and on the Northampton with John and Jeremiah Toohey, also probably a sister Ellen. I thought John and Con may have been twins, both same age but now thinking cousins. I'd be interested in the bit about mother Bridget paying for John as Con's parents have been a mystery with records giving different parents' names. The Toohey/Tuohy names are thick on the ground in Feakle parish.

Checked out the toolkit thanks for that, and did the google search, interesting stuff there too.

Hi,
Well, they were from Scariff, County Clare.
It says the town name Scariff on the ship record.
