Dear Brian,

I am most grateful for your taking the trouble to sent me the list of Civil Registrations for Doolan in Co. Meath.

My connection is on the Marriages List, June quarter 1878 Bessy Doolan, etc. She was my great-grandmother.

The details for you records are:
Marriage solemnised in the Roman Catholic Chapel of Athboy, in the Registrar District of Athboy, in the Union of Trim, in the County of Meath.

4th of March 1878. Patrick McGuinness, of full age, Bachelor, Rank of Farmer, residence of Chamberlainstown, father James McGuinness (Deceased) Rank of Farmer; married Bessy Doolan, of full age, Spinster, Rank of Farmer's Daughter, residence Grenanstown, father James Doolan, rank of Farmer. Witnesses John Dowly and Oner Martin.

The marriage was not registered until the 22nd of June 1878, hence its being in the June quarter.

They went to live in Chamberlainstown, which is a Townland south of Kells, west of the R164, Kells to Athboy road. Grannanstown is about two miles west of Athboy.

Bessy is short for Elizabeth which is given on the 1901 (age 43) Census; and on my grandmother's birth certificate. On the 1911 Census her age is given as 53.

I have not, as yet, been able to look any Parish Registers to try and find a Baptism record.

I hope that you will find this information helpful, and thank you again for getting in touch.

Yours sincerely, Kevin J F Noonan.

Hello Norman

Thank you very much for that information which I will store in an "Interests Database" and probably slip in somewhere on my website. There are no Micklewrights in it at present.

Any more clues on Sarah's origin welcome. Unless I hear from you I'll assume that is all the info you have.

I might also assume that the Halesowen is the one to the west of Birmingham in the county of Worcestershire in England unless you have one over in Vancouver (I cannot find another in my atlas).

Good luck

Hi there
What a fascinating site.
My Great Grandparents were Henry DOWLING and Avis SADLER. The family always said they came from Ireland to Surrey, where my grandmother ALice DOWLING was born. However we found they married in Wokingham and we have now got back to James DOUGHLING who married Alice JEROME in CHisledon,
WIlts in 1741. It will be difficult to find a link with Ireland now I think. James is possibly the sone of Thomas DOLE and Mary MITTEN, but I am now convinced about this!

Hello Brian,
We discovered henry's birth in the Wokingham Parish registers. We knew their first baby, Avis Dowling, died so I sent for the certifcate and was surprised to learn that it was in Wokingham. This sent us searching the Wokingham PR's and we found Henry's father David born there in 1795. A fellow researcher gave me information which led me to Binfield where I found David with his parents Henry and Mary.

James DOUGHLING and ALice JEROME married in Chisledon. I got this from the IGI and then checked the Parish reg's.They had no children in Wilts but these showed up on the Berks IGI for Uffinton.

To go further back than James is a problem. In the IGI there is a James born to a Thomas in Westwood. IF (and its a big IF) this is correct then its likely to be the marriage recorded as Thomas DOLE and Mary MITTEN in 1707 in Westwood with Ilford, WIlts. They had 6 children.

Hope you find it interesting - no link with your family though! Marion.
