  • I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland for Judge or Breheny marriages in Co. Roscommon for Anne, Elizabeth and Eleanor and did not find any good leads. There were a few marriages with the correct names in other parishes in Co. Roscommon but they were a good distance from Elphin parish. You would expect the marriages to be in Elphin since marriages were normally held in the bride's church.

    One point of clarification, the records you located were in the parish of Elphin as opposed to the Diocese of Elphin? Correct?

    Likely the sisters emigrated.

  • Patricia's Lead above gives you a very good lead to researching your ancestor's RC Records. The NLI (National Liabrary of Ireland) has the RC Parish Records on Line. This link will take you to the Parish of Boyle


    Page 11 has a Baptism record for James 

    Page 88 last entry had a record for Patrick

    Page 113 has a record for Michael                     All three to the parents Bartholomew Breheny and Elizabeth Feehily.

    Page 9 under Marrages has an entry for a Patrick Breheny marrying a Bridget Gallagher 7 Feb 1853

    Page 29 RHS 1st entry may be a record of interest for an Anne Breheny.

    It may be worth your while contacting Roscommon Genealogy in Strokestown as they would have all of the Roscommon records in their computer syatem.

    Hope the above will help to narrow your research somewhat by researchaing the RC Parish of Boyle and working out from there.

  • I just checked and searched for Civil Records year 1864 - 1875 for Breheny in Boyle.

    A marriage record for Elizabeth Judge to Michael Muldoon 17 Feb 1870 district of Boyle is of interest. Her father's name is Batly deceased. She was from the townland of Lismarrane. married in the church of Kilfree, Gurteen. Co. Sligo.

  • Hi Martin!

    Thanks for your research. Happy Christmas to you!

    Judge family:

    Here is the civil marriage record that Martin found (4th record on the page). The marriage was actually held in Co. Sligo.

  • Hi there,  I found a birth record for Elizabeth 29/07/1835 (29 Jul 1835).  Also a feasible marriage record for Elizabeth. Found birth records for Eleanor, and Ann but nothing else.

  • Roger, Patricia, Martin and Jackie , thank you all for your time, effort and replys , all is appreciated . 

    Maybe the Elizabeth who married and fathers name was Batly should be Bartly . The 2nd Elizabeth who married Co Sligo is more likely . The 3 sisters may have gone to Sligo area to ??? other relatives after their father passed in 1861 and the 3 brothers sailed to the U.S. 1863-1868 time frame .?? Some possibilities to check out .  Thank you ALL , Patti

  • Batly/Bartly may have been an abbreviation for Bartholomew.

    I saw your comment regarding the Owen Tunny message and being notified even though it is not your message. I alerted our Administrator since there may be a systems issue.

  • The messages you get are by Parish I believe. I received both the Breheny and Tunny messages because I belong to the same Parish. I find it interesting :) and you never know when something might be related to your search.

  • Jackie:

    The Tunny message was posted in Boyle parish. This message is in Elphin so different parishes. However, both messages were posted in Roscommon parish which may be a clue.

    The notification process is supposed to be by message only meaning, you should only be notified about comments for a message where either you were the original poster or you had made an earlier comment on the message.

    This issue is currently being investigated by our programmer.

  • Pat:  

    I also posted this reply on the Tunny message.



    Pat De Mare: 

    Our programmer checked your personal settings on the the Ireland Reaching Out web site and you checked the box to receive notifications on all messages for Roscommon county. This explains why you are being notified about the Owen Tunny message thread (which was also posted in Roscommon county) and presumably about other messages that were posted in Roscommon county. Do you want to turn off this notification setting?
