You don't need her mother's name if you are able to quote the registration index ref which is this: Dundalk Q4 1906 Vol 2, page 691. That, plus Evangeline Mary Margaret Walsh, will be sufficient.

Download the application form for a birth cert at www.groireland.ie, fill in those details and credit card details. Post to Roscommon. Will take anything from one to six weeks for the photocopy of the birth cert to arrive.

The birth certificate will give you her mother's surname, but in the meantime you could try searching the 1901 Irish census (it's free) for a suitable 20-year-old Mary Ann or Marion in Castlebellingham. In the 1911 English census she's recorded as having been married for 8 years which could mean she was still in the family home in Ireland in 1901.

If you're looking for a 1903 wedding, you could try this one in the Irish civil registration index: Edward Walshe, married Q1 1903, Dundalk Vol 2 page 701. Again, a research copy of the marriage cert would cost you 4Euros. Might be him. But might be best to wait for the birth certificate so that you can cross check the two surnames in the civil registration index.

Good luck.

Hi,

I think I share a series of common features with your grandmother Margaret Evangeline Walsh.

My Grandfather was Edward Walsh (1861); he came from Ireland (possibly Waterford area) and joined the Army Service Corps. His first wife died in 1898 leaving a daughter (my Grandmother), Gertrude and a son, George (who died young). He went off to the Boer War and on his return went to Ireland and remarried. They had two children, a boy in 1904 and a daughter. The boy joined the Royal Army Service Corps but we do not know what happened to the daughter.

We know that Edward served in WW1 and ended up a Major. Circa 1918-1920the family were in Leamington Spa; that my grandmother Gertrude was Roman Catholic.

The surname Sawyer is also known in our family with a nickname 'Peggy' which I understand is short for Margaret.

I would like to know if any of this rings any bells with you?

Regards, Richard

Hi Richard

thanks for your information, there could possibly be a connection between our trees. My grand mother Margaret Evangaline Walsh was married to William George Sawyer and they both lived in Hendon together, William owned a hairdresser shop in Ealing Road Alperton.
Margaret died on the 15th June 1948 at the Redhill county hospital.

Thats all I have on her i hope this will be of help

Hi,

I know of Margaret Evangeline Walsh as my great grandfather was Edward Walsh. He came over from Ireland and joined the Army Service Corps. My grandmother is his daughter by his first marriage. Margaret is his daughter by his second marriage.

I believe my mother may have been a Bridesmaid at her wedding and her two daughters in return were Bridesmaids at my mothers wedding!

Please get in touch as I have holes in my tree that I am trying to fill.

I assume contact is via email.
