Two Irish sisters that lived next door to one another in Wiltshire.
« on: Wednesday 30 September 20 15:08 BST (UK) »
Hello to you all.
I have two great aunts that I am trying to track down, they were from Kilmacow, county Kilkenny in Ireland, There names were Margaret(known as Maggie born 25/9/1905) and Ellen(known as Nellie born 14 March 1899) Cooke.
I was told that they moved to Wiltshire and lived next door to one another. One of them married to a Mr O'Brien (or O'Brian or Bryan) I think it may have been Maggie. I am assuming they took up married life there, so potentially the twenties or thirties? Or not, maybe they retired there?
I know this is a bit of a wide ball, but I know if anyone can give me an answer, it's here.
Thanks in advance.
I would like to know where in Wiltshire they lived, when they passed away and who they were married too.
All the best, and stay safe.

As you have their dates of birth have you tried searching the 1939 register for them

Is this the family?

Did only one sister marry?
Did any siblings emigrate to England?

There is a published tree which mentions the marriage of Ellen Cooke to John Cahill, Callan, Ireland

Here is that marriage

Rosie, good point, but I am not 100% about the surnames, possibly O'Brien. Thank you.
