Still looking for any infomation regarding James OWENS and wife Mary BLAYNEY. James an apothacary, born? death: 19 June 1847.  Mary born 1806 Death 19 May 1891.

They married at Glenealy Church of Ireland 1828.

I have their children (Except a Robert Blayney b 5 May 1834 died ?)  but cannot get any further back on either of these ancestors.

Please help break down this brick wall

    The subscription site Roots Ireland has Glenealy Church of Ireland baptismal records back to 1815 and marriages to 1826. When I did a search for the marriage record of James and Mary, Roots Ireland showed January 1820 (likely a mistake)? There is no baptismal record for a James Owens in a Church of Ireland church in the period before 1810. Since the marriage was likely in Mary's parish, a baptismal record would not be available since Glenealy baptismal records only go back to 1815.

    I found baptismal records for Martha April 30 1830 Jane October 30 1831 Mary born January 1 1835 and baptized December 27 1835  Robert born May 5 1835 and baptized Mary 12 James Frederick born February 27 1838 baptized April 20 1838  William Henry John born January 17 1840 baptized February 27 1840 George Francis Charles born July 4 1841 baptized August 27 1841 Frances Emily January 1 1844 baptized September 10 1844 Emily Eleanor Hester born June 21 1846 baptized July 31 1846.

    All baptisms in the Wicklow town Church of Ireland parish.

  • Thank you for your help.

    It seems I have reached a dead end.

    At this stage I think I'll concentrat on finding all I can regarding their children and maybe I'll' be lucky in finding a hint for their parents.

    And the elusive  Robert Blaney may show up again.
