William and Elizabeth O'Brien/ Brien Wexford
« on: Friday 14 August 20 20:38 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm looking for any information on William O'Brien and his wife Elizabeth.
We know of one of their children being born in Co Wexford around 1837 Catherine Brien who went on to marry a man called Malee or Melee.
We found this out in the 1901 Census records.

They all went on to live in Dalkey Co Dublin.
We Have no date of death for William but Elizabeth his wife died in 1898.
William is down as a Farmer on all his kids wedding certs.
They had a son called William who died in 1867 and also Patrick possibly born in wexford also, and another daughter named Bridget.

Any help greatly appreciated.

If you know of a Catherine born 1837, and a William died 1868, then perhaps you know a location(s)?
Have you looked in tythe (NAI website) and Griffiths valuations (Ask About Ireland website)?

Yes, Both from Dalkey.
No information on the births locations.
One of the siblings born Co Wexford.

This looks like Catherine's marriage to James MULLEE:

Elizabeth Snr's death?

I will check links you posted.

So, what are the other possible birth dates, other than the 1836 one you mentioned?

Should we take it William died 1868 in Dalkey?

Birthplace of co. Wexford comes from 1901 or 1911 census?

Young William passed in 1867. He was around 30 years of age.

His sister Kate Melee on the 1901 census stated Co Wexford as her birth, her sister Elizabeth states Dublin.

It's the parents Elizabeth and William I'm looking for information on.
Apart from Elizabeth death in 1898 theres no more information on her or her husband.
She lived in Sorrento road Dalkey at her death in 1898.
On her burial records it says widow of William O'Brien ( Farmer ).

No burial records for him or date of death.

I perfectly understand that you want to get back to the parents, and I am trying to help you....  :)

What you should understand is that every bit of information - no matter how small - helps!

For example, still not clear where William died in 1867 -  what was his occupation? What is the source of the information - a death registration?

On the tythe valuations for Co. Wexford, I see
4 William Bryan entries, two of which are probably the same person.
3 William Brien entries
0 William o'Brien.
