Hi Heywood,

Sorry for the slight delay in replying.Work has been busy!
Thanks for the links.I have ordered the marriage certificate and will take it from there! Iíll leave the death certificates a little longer and try to figure out the more likely ones first.My guess will probably be the Catherine Davy deaths of 1840 or 1844.I think the 1846 one is unlikely as John Davy and Bridget McCartney married that year.Which brings me to the 1841 census you mentioned in an earlier post.

In the 1841 census for Cleator Moor, it seems quite probable that this is the same family.3 names match with later censusís and the mother listed as Catherine would also match 3 out of 4 possibles in the deaths.

As far as the De Burgh name goes.I just thought it may be worth trying to follow this Davy link up.No evidence so far to suggest a link to my Davyís though.

I am hoping to be able to make the family tree jump into Ireland and have found out that the surname has only less than 300 recorded entries in the 1901 census for the entire country. If this is the case, I may have some hope!

Anyway, thank you for taking the time to try and help me:)

This is possibly the family in 1841 - the names are listed amongst the others.
ĎHeneryí is actually at the end of the list after Patrick and William.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M73K-9Y8

ĎIí and ĎSí are often written in a similar way. As you can see Henry is shown as born Scotland.
There is though a Henry Davy/ey in later censuses born Scotland  :-\


The 'Scotlandspeople' website RC parish records index shows a son 'Henricum Davy' born on 11 February 1837 to parents 'Joanne Davy' and 'Catharina Conyngham' (maybe Cunningham?) and baptised on 12 March 1837 in the parish of Newton Stewart, Our Lady and St. Ninian. Henry was one of twins, a son 'Danielem' is also shown (ie. same parents, DOB, baptism date).

Edited to add: Given that Newton Stewart is slightly off the beaten track, I couldn't help but notice two daughters baptised in 1826 and 1828 in the same church for a couple called 'Patricio Davy' and 'Maria MacVaigh', it might be pure co-incidence, but just to note for now that a transcript I've seen of a marriage record for Loughinisland RC Church in County Down shows a couple called Patrick Davy and Mary McVea marrying on 18 March 1812, witnessed by a Patrick Fitzsimons and a Mrs Thomas Cunningham. Mary McVea's address is recorded as 'Ardtanagh', Patrick Davy's as 'Dromaroad'.  The townland link for Drumaroad has already been posted at reply #14, here is Ardtanagh (it's very nearby):

Looking good again gaffy  :)

The  Scottish connection is mentioned in reply #4 so the Henry in later censuses might be the same family.

Hi,

I think you guys are back onto something here!! Thanks.
Assuming these are the correct John Davy and Catherine their oldest sons would appear to have been born in Ireland(1841 census)
It does seem a strange coincidence that the Patrick Davy is from Drumaroad already mentioned.
If the 1841 census age is near correct, John and Catherine were born about 1806 and their oldest son abt 1832.Do you think they are likely to have married in the 1825-1831 range?The question now is where???
Any suggestions on where to start looking ?
There is nothing on Scotlandís people so they didnít marry there.I canít see a marriage in England either.Must be Ireland or most likely?
Any ideas most appreciated and thanks again !!!!í
