Any help or information on these familys would be very much appreciated
Thank you a very :confused: Linda
Hi Linda,

Seeing that two of the children were born after 1837, either one of the birth certificates will have the mothers maiden name.
Hi Linda,

Just had a look on the 1841 census.

Found this:-

Civil parish Blackburn
RD Blackburb
Sub RD Darwen

Mary Walsh age 40 occ washer? -----
Lettice age 11 occ cotton -----
Lace age 4 (looks like Lace and has been transcribed as Lace could be Grace)
James Riley age 18
Mary Ann Riley age 13

There is also another Walsh family on the same page.
Thank you for your help, maybe they both married twice,this is complicated
but i will stick at it and hopefully find who Richard married first
