Hi Rubilyn,

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

I assume you also want to find out about John's life before England? If so, it might be a good idea to post this request on the Ireland board, where people have more specialised knowledge about Irish records:

Do you have any idea of which county they might have come from? If not, just post in general Ireland queries.

In terms of John Doyle in England, it is going to be quite difficult to research as, not only is his name very common, he did not appear on a census.

As far as I can tell, the family moved to England sometime between 1871, when Andrew was born, and 1876, when Mary Ann was born.

As you have stated, Mary Ann's mother's name was Keogh, as evidenced by her birth registration:

GRO Reference: 1875  M Quarter in MANCHESTER  Volume 08D  Page 192

By 1881, John has passed away. His wife, Ann, now a widow, is living in Manchester with her 3 children, Jane (c.1866), Andrew (c.1871) and Mary Ann (1874).

According to the census return, Ann was born c.1846.

I have looked for a burial record for John but haven't had any luck. I also tried to find Mary Ann's baptism but haven't been able to find it.

It would be helpful to try and find Jane & Andrew's baptisms to ascertain where in Ireland John & Ann lived before they emigrated - that could also lead you to their marriage record. I had a go but County Kerry is my specialty and I don't think they are from there.

Queenie  :)
