  • Do you know if your Woods and Ryan couple were Catholic ?

    Unfortunately baptism records for for the Catholic parish of Fermoy only start in about 1825, so not quite far enough to include a baptism of Catherine if she was born in that parish. There is a possible match that might be worth considering for her baptism in Annakissy parish, which is two parishes to the west of Fermoy. The date of the baptism is the 29th October 1815 with parents Patrick Woods and Joan Carroll. The sponsors/godparents names are Denis O Brien  and Peg. Brien. See the 4th entry on the right hand page.

    I have not been able to locate any promising matches for the marriage of Patrick & Catherine or the baptism of Patrick jnr.
