I undertand where you are coming from, but short of searching every single Church Register in Ireland she does not seem to be found on available sources.

Hi,
I don't know if this will help, the earliest CHESTER in Ireland I found was a Philip Chester and his mother Ellen, he was a Shoemaker. In Black Castle Part Of Navan Town (Donaghmore, Meath)

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/c19/007246483/007246483_00457.pdf

This was in 1821, looking at the original document it says... Chester her son, but transcribed as Chesker.
No other records for him sorry.
The next results for Chester seem to be in Oldcastle, County Meath.

Her son's enlistment paper: https://i.imgur.com/058nZam.jpg

Burke/Bourke is one of the most common surnames in Ireland, now distributed through all 4 provinces.
It's another Anglo-Norman name - de Burgo, de Burgh, which arrived in Ireland late 12th century.

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/EP19260907.2.136?query=eileen%20gertrude%20murray&phrase=2&snippet=true

From the Evening Post 7 Sep 1926

Death occurred on Saturday morning at Christchurch of Mrs Eileen Gertrude Murray , widow of the late Mr Henry Murray , formerly a well known citizen of Christchurch ....The daughter of an Army Officer , Mrs Murray was born in County Cork , Ireland , and came at an early age with her family to Australia. As a young woman she came to New Zealand ...

the article goes on to mention her children , Stella Murray , celebrated contralto , Mr H St A Murray ( an athlete I believe , ) and Mr Bernard Murray.

Not sure how reliable the references to Cork and the Army are  ;D

That is the kind of thing that needs to be found!


Nice one!

Wow, that is certainly more information than I thought could be found... Thank you so much Christine. So she did move with her family at a young age, the squatter detail was important. Very interesting. I'll still focus on researching Australian newspapers, documents etc. seeing as she spent a lot of time there, and there should be records of her parents. Perhaps there will be more details on her death certificate, I will order that today.
