Thank you for your reply. I do have their marriage certificate. Do you have any further information, - i.e. when she was born/baptised, and where?
The information that I have, is as follows:
Anne was Church of Ireland.
3 children were born of the marriage in Wexford.

Anne is my great-great grandmother.
I can find no record of when or where she died.

Thank you again.

You also know from the marriage cert that she was living in the parish of Meelnagh.
Surviving church records for Meelnagh
https://www.johngrenham.com/records/church.php?civilparishid=2604&civilparish=Meelnagh&search_type=full
there is a project to put COI records online but it still some time off.

that she was a servant so possibly not living at home, she may even have travelled to Ireland with a family she worked for.

and her father John Holebrook was a constable, again you can't be sure he was a constable in Ireland but worth following up.

Looking in the newspapers there was a John Holebrook listed as a Process Server in Abbeyleix during the 1830s which I think is something to do with the courts, may not be the correct man but worth noting.

Thank you Sinann, for your quick response.  :)
Yes, I am aware of Meelnagh, and IF Anne Holebrook was born there, then she was baptised in Kilmuckridge, and that being the case, those records are gone forever, - destroyed during the fire in the PROI in 1922.
John Holebrook was, I suspect, a village constable (pre RIC - 1837) in Oulart, - there was a police barracks located there during that time. I've taken note of Abbeyleix, and I will definitely follow that up.
I also believe that my great-great grandfather, James Murphy was from Oulart, and that he returned there, with his young daughters, after the death of his first wife.

I will keep searching, and hope for a breakthrough.
Thanks again  :)
