Thompson, Mary b 1847 Galway

On 1901 Census shows Mary born Galway with father named John Thompson b 1816 and mother Catherine b 1822.

They had children: Margaret Thompson b 1841 Ireland

Mary my great grandmother! b 1847 Ireland [married John Thomas Leach 1878 Rochdale]

Ellen Thompson b 1856 Rochdale, Lancashire, England.   

                    So between 1847 and 1856 they moved to England

John R. Thompson b 1859 Rochdale, Lancashire, England

Martin Thompson b 1863 Rochdale, Lancashire, England


Anybody with any clues to help me go further back would be appreciated. And happy to look up things at this end.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I checked on Roots Ireland for a baptismal record for Mary from 1837-1857 but got no record. I did a similar search for William but did not find a record. You did not mention the religious denomination but if they were C of I from Galway city, you may want to contact the local church. Available RC records are on Roots and I was unable to locate a reocrd.

  • Ooops sorry Roger I have only just seen this. It's ages ago, but just wanted to say thanks for doing the search. I'm still searching and have found a couple of things but cannot confirm them.  I have had more luck with my paternal grandmother's side in Louth and have actually found her birth certificate.

    Thanks anyway
