I do have the death registrations of Frank and Ann:

Anne Duffin died on 22 January 1883, Battlestown, 53 years old, widow. Informant Kate Duffin. (Other data as above.)

I canít see a marriage or death for Kate/Catherine Duffin, the informant, can you? I was hoping she was the daughter.

No, I cannot find her. I looked in the 1901 census for her, without success, but by then she might have married.

Other connections.
We have Anne Duffin marrying Egan, a widower.

Mary Egan (her stepdaughter) married Frank Duffin, son of your William.
1911 Egans and Duffins

Anne Egan  died and Frank Duffin, nephew, was the informant.

This seems to confirm that Anne is another sibling to your William.

With the age given in her death record, that would make Anne's birthday around 1856, so even earlier than (so far) first-born Patrick Duffin. With parents Frank Duffin and Ann Spillane born around 1823 and 1830, that would place the date of their marriage likely between 1848 and 1856, don't you think?

Yes, that seems likely.I canít see anything to help though other than what we have already.
Also nothing to help towards Anne using ďSp*l*í
