I am looking for my great great grandparents Michel and Ann who were born in Mayo Co. They had a son Richard Bourke born in 1829 in Ireland. There is  alsoa great great grandparents Richard Bourke born 1799  and Brigit Smiith born 1809 in Mayo Co.. Richard and Brigit ere married in Canada in 1834.Michael 1801 and Richard 1799 were possibly brothers or cousin as they had grandchildren who needed church permission to marry. The family lore is that we came from east of Ashford castle so I joined the Cong parish.I also have Michael Lynch B. 1800 and{Mary] Ann Long b.1797 in Ireland, they were my GReat grandmother,s grandparents.The story is that Michael Lynch was a protestant tax collector who lost his job because he married Ann a catholic. There first child John was born in 1826.  I only have that the Lynch,s were born in Ireland.
