Children of Patrick Brien
« on: Friday 21 December 18 20:18 GMT (UK) »
Patrick and Maria/Mary Brien were married in 1859 in Tunstall.

They had a son named Lawrence in 1860 as well as a daughter Ann in 1863, both born in Tunstall. I havenít managed to find them together in any censuses and I was wondering if they had any more children after Annís birth.

This looks as if it might be them on 1871 census

Class: RG10; Piece: 5044; Folio: 14; Page: 21;
Living in County Durham, although Ann isn't with them
GRO gives mmn as VASS for both Lawrence and Ann
You could check if there were any other children with VASS as the mother's maiden name

Poorly transcribed on Ancestry

Larana Brann   11

Thank you all. It was proving difficult as the name changes from Brien to Breen to OíBrien.
