Would appreciate some help in finding my Mathews/Bray ancestors please.

I am researching my Mathews family history.  Thomas Mathews married Julia Bray 9 July 1820 Dublin (RC) St. Mary, PRO Cathedral.  I have yet to find their dates of birth & death.  One of their children, Patrick Henry Mathews (my GGrandfather) was bapt. 2 Oct, 1842, St. Paul's Arran Quay, Co Dublin.  I think another of their children Juliana Mathews was bapt. 19 Jun 1833, Castleknock, Blancardstown, Co. Dublin.  Her parents are stated as Thomas Mathews & Juliana Bray. Patrick Henry Mathews emigrated to Australia in about 1863 when he was 21, although I have not been able to find any passenger lists or ship's records.

Perhaps there are other children to this couple that I have not as yet discovered &  would appreciate any help in my reseach please.

Thank you,

Di

  • I too am looking for the Braty family .My mother was a Bray before she married in 1956 .I am only as far back as 1860 with Patrick Bray and Elizabeth Clare living in Dublin .Did you find that marriage details on irishgenealogy as i seen it on there and the witness is John Bray  so maybe that will help .
