Bernard Oates c1821. Ireland.

Hi all.

I don't hold out much hope of finding the origins of this family, as all census returns in England, only say Ireland as p.o.b.

I assume the move to Manchester, England was between 1848 to 1854.

There is gap in the childrens births of those born in Ireland, and those born in Manchester, because of two reasons possibly.

Bernard Oates remarried, or the children in those intermediate years have died because of the famine. 1845-1852 or from other ailments.

1861 Census.

Bernard Oates

Michael Oates. 19. Ireland

Other children born Manchester.

**Birth cert gives mother maiden name of MULLICK.

There are extremely vague references to Co.Leitrim & Co.Roscommon by searching for Bernard in FamilySearch.

Any ideas anyone.
