***Have not found John Leddy's and Elizabeth Reilly's marriage date in 1830's

***Have not found son Daniel Leddy's baptism (estimated 1830-34).  

*** Have not found daughter Catherine Leddy's baptism (estimated 1838? but could be in 1840s)

  • Hello Mac, from the registers website it appears marriage records for Drumlane RC only commence in January 1837 and baptisms in January 1836, see 

    I see the baptisms you mention on Roots Ireland but also another sibling or at least I think it is, a Thomas Leddy baptised 12tth March 1838, sponsors James Leddy and Mary Smith, parents John & Elizabeth Leddy, why it is interesting is they have included a stab at a townland, Tullicgrogan??  I see a Tullyanog in Drumlane from this site but you may see a better candidate

    This site is civil townlands and religious parishes may not be exact to the civil one.

    There are two Cavan Genealogy Facebook pages apply to join and a Cavan DNA matching page if that appeals, mind you there are a lot of people looking for Reilly but you probably know that.

    Good Luck

  • Pat,

    Thank you. I will check out the Cavan pages. I also found one other child of John Leddy & Elizabeth Reilly in Drumlane after I posted. She was Elizabeth Reilly and had to have been born in the 1840s, possibly the youngest child. She turned up as a pensioner whose residence in the 1851 census with her parents was used to verify her age. 

    Have you found a baptism for Elizabeth Leddy of John L. & Elizabeth Reilly?


    Thank you,

  • Macfound this one; Catherine 1837 17th April, Drumlane, parents Edward and Elizabeth Leddy; Drunmacon, Drumlane, hardly correct also see and way out of kilter there is a Philip Leddy born to John and Elizabeth Leddy in Drumlane, Ashgrove, sponsors are Michael & Elanor Leddy, must be related some way.

    There are quite a few Leddy men married to different Elizabeth's around the area but do not see your ones, I have read people say it is sometimes worth reading the registers as transcribers can miss some or there are interesting notes not transcribed but it is a tricky undertaking to randomly read them, patience and good eyes necessary.

    Good Luck
