There were 8 children that I know of. The school records I have seen say they were not exempt from Religious Instruction.

Only 2 died young, and they lie in public cemeteries such as Islington.

Apart from the two who died young, only one didn't marry and raise a family.

Thank you for the information though, it's something to bear in mind for the future.

One lot of my Greatgrandparents was a "mixed" marriage(Ireland 1860s-1870s) - the boys were brought up Presbyterian and the girls R.C.
However, in the Register of the local Catholic church there are a entries for the first four boys "baptised privately and conditionally" at the ages of 3-11 months.
