    Mary LIGHTBODY

    The 1893 Charlotte's death is on-line free. The certificate shows she was married to Francis. https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1893/06004/4708866.pdf

    1881 Marriage in Birr

    The copy on the irishgenealogy site is not an original with the couples own signatures. It was a duplicate created by a clerk in the GRO in Ireland. If you look at all the entries on that page, every word is in the same handwriting. The signatures would all be in different handwriting if these...

    I’d say the Registrar was Benjamin A. Palmer. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Armagh/Mullaglass/Mullaglass/1036684/ Can’t suggest what the 2nd cause of death was.

    1861 Marriage McKERAGHAN & BUCHANAN

    Yes it does look like Mullenhone or Mullenhome. Unfortunately there isn’t one in Tyrone and I can’t suggest what it might be. Daniel who died in 1878 in Mullawinny is the only Daniel in Tyrone in Griffiths and the only Daniel Buchanan death anywhere in Ireland 1864 to 1901. He was a widower. I...

    1861 Marriage McKERAGHAN & BUCHANAN

    Only Daniel Buchanan in Tyrone in Griffiths Valuation 1860 was in Mullawinny, parish of Donacavey, Tyrone. Perhaps the crossed out word is Mullawinny? Daniel died there in 1878 aged 68: https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1878/020502/7194693.pdf A...

    The non availability of the 1875 death has nothing to do with 100 year rule or data protection. They simply haven’t got around to putting it on-line free yet. The records are being loaded in batches and deaths for 1864 – 1877 are not available free yet. However you can view the original...

    John A. Clark, born 1873 in West Calder, studied at University of Edinburgh, Bachelor of Divinity

    You could also try Crieff Church of Scotland to see if anyone there knows of the family. (Rev Clark looks to have been a Free Church Minister. There was a Free Church in Crieff for many years but it closed in 1964, so remaining members of that congregation may have merged with the Church of...

    Birth in Ireland?

    Click on the link I provided in my reply. It takes you straight to the census return. I think that lady's father died in Co Down in about 1897. There was a Brelsford "hotel keeper" who died then amongst the 3 deaths I noted between 1864 and 1921.

    Birth in Ireland?

    There’s no-one named Brelsford anywhere in Ireland in the 1911 census and just one in 1901. She was born in Guernsey: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Down/Ballynahinch/Ballymacarn_South/1224537/ 2 Brelsford marriages in the GRONI marriage indexes up to June 1945. Hannah...

    Tracing Irish emigration to England

    There’s been a fair amount of discussion about the 1926 census on other boards. There is/was a legislative bar which has closed it for 100 years. The Irish Government was keen to release it but it requires primary legislation. That particular Government has long fallen by the wayside, and I...

    Tracing Irish emigration to England

    There have never been records of passengers travelling from Ireland to England. All you can do is note when someone last appears in Irish records and first appears in UK records and assume they arrived in the gap. (But of course it’s a short journey and many people went to and forth all the time...
