Saunders/Shea

I am trying to further my journey into find further information about Elenor Shea's family. She married Michael Saunders on 23rd October 1839 Burriscarra. Sponsors Pat & Mary Higgins.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The records for Burriscarra/Ballintober RC parish start in 1839. So if Michael and Eleanor were from that parish, baptismal records would not be available.

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and located a baptismal record for a daughter Mary born in 1840. See below. Did Michael and Eleanor emigrate after 1840?

  • Unsure the actual date they immigrated but they did and it was to Liverpool UK and their first child was daughter Mary. Are there any further records available?

    I did another search just showing Michael as the father and omitting Shea and this record turned up. Almost all RC baptismal records show the maiden name of the mother but this record was different. There was one other record for a child called Bridget Saunders in 1845 in Burriscarra. Fathers name was Michael but the mother was Ellen McIntire. Location was different. The place name for the 1843 would be either Killawullaun or Killavally both in Ballintober civil parish.
