Savage Family Galway (and before)
« on: Tuesday 30 April 19 15:30 BST (UK) »
I am trying to build my family tree and it stops in Oughterard. The furthest I can find is Peter Savage (born circa 1799), who lived in Church Road and was married to Mary Ryan (Larner) in Oct 1829. It is believed within my side of the family, near Clifden, that he was possibly a Protestant minister from the north that converted to Catholicism to marry Mary, herself a widow. I am keen to find out more about Peter and the line than follows that is separate to mine. As far as I can find they only had one child.

His son Richard Savage married to Bridget Kenny, lived Faugh East House 26. Richard and Bridget had 7 children:

Peter John Savage 1858–
Maria Savage 1860–
Mary (Bernard?) Savage 1860–
Jane Savage 1863–
Thomas Savage 1865–
Elizabeth Margaret Savage 1869–
Richard Joseph Savage 1872–1931

Their son Richard Joseph Savage, born in 1872 is my Great Grandfather.

Can anyone provide any information on Peter and/or any of the other families that followed?

Thanks

Shaun

Have you looked for marriages/deaths for the children and parents on Irish Genealogy

For example this one appears to be Thomas

Thanks for that Sinann. I have been concentrating on the mysterious Peter and trying to find his path to Oughterard, so I hadn't looked in to Thomas. This was a good find and a nice pointer in the right direction.

Regards

Shaun

The 1901 Census can help too.... these are all Galway born ones

http://www.rootschat.com/links/01nqc/

then using

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp   you can just put Surname in and a year range and search for them... no need to put any district in!

Allow a year or two each way for year ranges

Then...having looked at the 1901 names, just scroll down at change it to 1911 and search 1911 census
