Hello,

I'm wondering if I have 2x William & Jane here:

Ledlie William 1853 Parish: NEWRY & MOURNE (PR)
Action Source Surname First Name Year County
Church Marriage Ledlie William 1853 Co. Down

Graham Jane 1853 Parish: NEWRY & MOURNE (PR)
Action Source Surname First Name Year County
Church Marriage Graham Jane 1853 Co. Down

Ledlie William 1853 Parish: KILLEAVY (PR)
Action Source Surname First Name Year County
Church Marriage Ledlie William 1853 Co. Down

Graham Jane 1853 Parish: KILLEAVY (PR)
Action Source Surname First Name Year County
Church Marriage Graham Jane 1853 Co. Down

A son Samuel Graham LEDLIE b. abt 1858.

Another son John LEDLIE b. 17 May 1865.

The youngest Robert Johnson LEDLIE b. abt 1873.

All three sons made it to Australia, it seems at different times.

I have no idea yet if any of the three daughters left Ireland.

Regards,

Dave

Could it be at all possible that they came from two different parishes and for some reason had a ceremony performed in both parishes? A bit like having a Civil ceremony followed by a Church blessing. Just a thought.

Hello Emeltee,

I'm open to suggestions. :)

I have no info as to their parish. I have no deaths either. All I'm sure of is that they had 3 sons who all ended up in Australia.

Regards,

Dave
