I am researching my grandmother's family, the Foye's in and around Sligo.  Her grandfather was Michael Foye 1845-1910 and grandmother, Bridget Armstrong 1851-1929.  Michael's father is known to be James Michael Foye 1812-1897 but while it believed his mother was Bridget Berian, I can find nothing of her or a marriage reference that was to have been in 1876.  My gr-grandmother Rose Ann, was their first child, born in 1877.  Would anyone happen to have access to a source that could locate this marriage?  I am most grateful for any assistance.  Thank you, Colleen O'Gorman

  • Hi Colleen!

    See fourth record     https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_ret...    Beesy was a variant of Bridget.

  • Hello Roger,  Nice to hear from you and have your assistance.  I could not open that link.  I use the site often.  After re-reading my message, clearly it was not clear.  I am looking for any document pertaining to the marriage of James and his Bridget.  They would have been Michael's parents.  I hope you have some luck finding something for me.  Thank you, Colleen

    Yes, I was confused, thought you needed the 1876 marriage record.

    I searched on Roots Ireland and the earliest James Foy(e) marriage record in Co. Sligo was in 1892.  Sorry!

  • Thanks Roger,  Any other records that might identify James Foye 1812-1897?  I believe his father's name was Michael.  We are getting pretty far back, so I understand there not being anything available.  Your help is always appreciated.  Colleen

    The tithe listings from the 1820/1830s has three Foy records in Achonry parish  including a Michael.

    The 1858 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing has James Foye in Tawnavoultry.
