Hi all,

I'm looking for the marriage of Richard and Catherine SAUNDERSON.

They would have married in County Monaghan or Donegal before 1863, as they emigrated to Australia in that year. Both were born in 1835.
Richard was from Monaghan
Catherine was from Castlefinn, County Donegal

Richard was a Police officer in Monaghan or Donegal. They were Presbyterian.

Gail

Thanks for the find, Gibbo :biggrin: :biggrin:

You've done it again for me.

Richard's father was Alexander and according to the Irish Constabulary, he was sent to Donegal in 1857 :)

Now I have an almost complete tree of the Saundersons :biggrin: :biggrin:

It was R.I.C. policy for men not to serve in their own community. Also policy if they married in their new location not to serve in what was their wife's community more than 12 months. After that there was a transfer, usually to another county.

My great great grandfather was from Co Down but he was posted to Co Cork where he married. One year later he was transferred to Co Waterford.

Yes, both Richard and Alexander emigrated to Australia within 6 months of marrying.
