Vina Trainor
« on: Wednesday 15 May 19 20:05 BST (UK) »
I have found a Vina Trainor (b abt 1837) in the 1861 Census for Glasgow, although she was born in Ireland, but have never come across this name before.  Anyone know if it is short for something or is it more likely to be a badly written/transcribed census entry?  Can't find any other records in her name.
Thank you!

There were Treanors in the townland of Farsnagh, Ardboe, Tyrone,Ireland. Don't know if there is a connection.

Trainor (and variants) fairly common in Ulster. To find an connection in Ireland you will need more information such as a place (parish if not townland) and religion (to check for church records since registration of births didn't start until 1864).

Peggy - probably a connection if I go back far enough!  Just come back from a trip to Ireland - there are Tr**n*rs everywhere!
Skoosh - seems it was quite a popular destination, often a stop-off on the way south.
aghadowey - I'm not sure if these Glasgow Trainors are some of "mine" (who were from Monaghan), but Vina seemed like she would be easy to rule in/rule out. Not so!
Thanks all for your input!
