McCann family Portarlington
« on: Thursday 05 December 19 15:41 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I have finally obtained my great grandparents marriage certificate 12th June 1892 Richard McCann from Portarlington and Anne Bowers in Mountmellick (thanks to you 8 years ago!)and delighted to find my great great grandfathers names Peter McCann and Thomas Jas Bowers on it. Can anyone advise how I could delve deeper into these links?  I am particularly interested in the Bowers side as Anne according to family lore ran away as an arranged marriage was made for her (she is possibly Church of Ireland).. she met Richard at the train station and ended up marrying him.

I grew up being told that her family where well to do and from Rathmines in Dublin however an old neighbour told me she was a country woman possibly from Tipperary.  The census mentions Tipperary and Kildare where they lived and also Kilmainham.  I have nothing else to go on and would love to get to the bottom of who her family is.  Any help or information would be appreciated.

Have you looked for them on the 1901/1911 Irish censuses?

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search/

If you click on the Year - there are other censuses you may find them on but perhaps not as much available as on the 1901/1911
