My 4 x great grandparents John and Ann Nelson lived in Templeshannon, Enniscorthy, County Wexford between say 1840 and 1865, both dying in that place in the early 1860's. Their daughter Margaret married Nathaniel Caston in London. Other siblings include Joseph, Colin, Mary Jane, Anna Adelaide, Caroline and Priscilla. Some including Margaret were born in Newry, Northern Ireland while others were born in Lancashire. 

John Nelson worked in the Butter trade. There are newspaper articles featuring John when he lived in Newry in the 1830's. When they moved to Enniscorthy, they lived at Abbey House in Templeshannon. John's wife Ann was a 'Donnell'. If anyone has any further information about John and Ann, including the parentage of both John and Ann, I would be interested to hear. thank you
