Thank you niccorr.  That is a couple that I have not heard of before, as is Ballymurphy. I have seen Caulfield spelled with the L and without the L and with two Fs or one F.
 I wonder where there is a Catholic parish that would have records before 1822 . In other words I am wondering if James Caulfield could have baptized his children in a nearby to Donoghenry  Catholic Parish before 1822.  Or is it just that he would have used Donoghenry but it is just not recorded?

Most parish records only start in the early 1820s as the laws eased leading up to Catholic Emancipation

You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Thanks Sinann. That  is an eye-opener. I just didn't realize the situation.

Still thinking about James Caulfield born 1788 and his family. Just because his sister Mary Duffin nee Caulfield became Catholic doesn't mean James was Catholic. I will still try to find some  baptisms for James' children.
