Have come to a brick wall with looking into my Irish roots, trying to trace the Bent family line John Bent was born in August 1809 in New Ross, Wexford, to Mary Mylnund and James Bent, don't know if anyone can help?

    The subscription site Roots Ireland has New Ross RC records back to 1789. I searched for a John Bent baptismal record with father James but the earliest record available was in the 1830s.

    Likely your John was baptized in a different parish that no longer has records back to 1808.

    I forgot to add that if the Bents were Church of Ireland, records for that parish are held at the Representative Church Library in Dublin.
