Jane Sullivan


Active member
Trying to find birth details (or anything else) of Jane Harriet Matilda Sullivan (full name as given on marriage certificate),daughter of Harry Sullivan a labourer, both born Ireland.

She married Henry Foster (b.1861 Whitstable,Kent,England) at Canterbury Registry Office on 13 November 1886.Her age is given on her marriage certificate as 30 yrs old (i.e born 1856),but on the 1891 Census she is listed as Matilda Foster b.1852,Ireland.

I cannot find her (or Henry on the 1901 Census,but the death register has Matilda J. Foster d.1916 age 65 (therefore b.1851) Bridge (Canterbury,Kent)

Any help or suggestions on where to look in the Irish records to find a possible date and place of birth would be much appreciated.
