    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I was unable to locate any Michael Jennings marriage to an Ellen Burke anywhere in Ireland up to 1910. There was a Michael Jennings marriage in 1836 to a Mary Burke in Rahoon RC parish Co. Galway.

    Could you provide more information? When did they get married? Any children?

  •  Dont have anymore information  They had a son Francis Jennings born in 1855 who emigrated to New Zealand in 1875  The names Michael and Ellen Jennings are what I have seen on the marriage certificate of Francis jennings  I did find a Michael Jennings and Ellen Burke in parish records St Michaels Clonfert  but got no further  Maybe the Michael you found is the one ? I would imagine they had more children beside Francis

    I could not find a record for Francis Jennings with father Michael. There are some parishes in Co. Galway which have late records and possibly Francis was baptized in one of those parishes.
