  • Peter:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Can you let us know when Peter was born? 

    The 1854 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing for Kilbeggan parish shows a John Brewer and a Thomas Brewer in Kilbeggan on the Tullamore Road https://www.failteromhat.com/griffiths/westmeath/kilbeggan.htm

    I looked at the subscription site Roots Ireland and found a baptismal record for Thomas and one for a brother James. See transcriptions below. Here is a link to the Kilbeggan parish register. You may want to scan the register for Peter. https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0943

  • Thanks for this Roger this is amazing , im really greatful for your help especially at this time. Father Brendan sent my a photo copy of a list of baptisms and Peter is definitely on it born in 1958, it only listed Thomas and Peter but i always though there must be more children in the family , James is a new one on me , once again many thanks for your efforts as it this point with James (father) and Sarah Codd ive hit a block .Thanks Peter
