Harrington Cardiff Wales born 1860

Location
New York
From
United States
Looking for Harrington relatives. We are planning a trip to UK the end of this year.

John Harrington b. 1833 Cork, IRE and Ellen (Foley) b.1834 Cork, IRE. Both migrated to Cardiff and were married in 1859 (11a 415)
their son William Harrington married Nora Brennan June 1884 Cardiff (11a 485)
William and Nora and 6 sons and 1 daughter - Frank b1887, William b1890 (Firemen Boilers), Edward b1893, Timothy b1895, Thomas b1900, Richard b1903 and Catherine "Cass" b 1907.
I know many of them migrated to other places but hoping to find some any information about them

Richard Peter Harrington b 1903 migrated to NYC about 1920 and married Mary Sexton. They are my grandparents. for information on William Harrington born 1860 Cardiff Wales UK. I found birth record (1860) and marriage record (1884). 1911 census shows William married to Nora with 7 children, Richard is next to youngest. Richard is my grandfather. I'm trying to help my 75 year old father find his family roots.

Wow, thank you so much! I was only able to find the 1911 Census information My father had always been told that his family was from Ireland but we weren't able to trace it until now. Any suggestions on best way to start search on John Harrington and Ellen/Helen Woley from Ireland? Thanks again my father will be so happy to know this.
