catholic parish registers wicklow 1830's
« on: Friday 07 October 05 15:59 BST (UK) »
I am looking for the bap. of Bridget Penrose born circa. 1833-34. Barriederrie (various spellings) Wicklow. I have been told that this is in the parish of Rathdrum.   Bridgets parents were Christopher and Catherine Penrose (nee Doyle)   She had sisters Ann born circa. 1830 and Esther born circa. 1832. 
I know a record exists for her bap. because a family member visited Wicklow and found the info. but the family member does not want to pass it on to me for what-ever-reason ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)
We all find some "weird" people in our family at times!
Thank you for any help.

You might try writing a letter to the Priest at the Rathdrum Church.  According to this site http://www.rootsweb.com/~fianna/county/wicklow/wiccoi.html
the registers from 1706 are in the custody of the local Church.
Perhaps enclosing a little donation for the church might help pave the way for a look up in the register?

Hi Kathleen,
Sorry you didn't get a result  from the website. The idea of Debbie's is a good one as I did the same thing in Galway and the priest sent me a letter with all of the family marriages, births etc , not just the one I requested.
Good luck
