Mary Browne born 1847, Toomevara,-  Father was Ned or Edward Browne and married a James Johnson in Clonmel   Mother was a Honora(h) Meara or possibly Maher even Mara 

Any help with Edward and before that  and Honora(h) Meara, Maher, Mara and father Mother of her line 

Mary Browne marriage to James Johnson 1868 https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1868/11469/8215770.pdf

Think they hailed from Toomevara but hard to go further back into Edward or Ned - and then Honora(h) with Meara liking ilike its right but sometimes coluld be spelt  as Maher or even Mara 

Any help appreciated 

Eliot Smith 

All this line leads down to my Mums mum somewhere or other

  • Hi Eliot . . . 

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out . . . and to Tipperary Co. . . . 

    I began my search . . with " Roots "  (paid) search engine  . . . for

    Edward Browne . . .  Born . . . Tipperary  . . . circa 1810 - 1830 . . . 

    and got two hits ( only) . . . as follows

    ______________________________________________________________________________

    Name:Edward BrownDate of Birth:

    Date of Baptism:27-Mar-1825Address:Not RecordedParish/District    :ABINGTON     Gender:Male     County Tipperary

    ____Looking at " Abington "  . . I only found one . . . and that was in Co.Limerick______________________________________________________________________________

    I then looked for the Birth of Honora . . Mara/O'Meara/Maher . . . circa. . . 1815 - 1835 born Tipperary . . 

    12 Honora's show up . . . BUT . . none that fit neatly into Toomevara . . . or Clonmel  . . . 

    ___________________________________________________________________________________

    Next I searched for a Wedding . . . circa . . . 1838 - 1848 . . . in ALL Ireland . . . 

    the follwing showed up . . . in Co. LIMERICK

    Church Marriage Record

    Date of Marriage:03-Jul-1844  Parish / District:RATHKEALECounty:Co. Limerick     HusbandWifeName    :EdwardBrowne     HanoraSheedy      Address:Denomination:Roman CatholicRoman CatholicOccupation:Age:Status:Husband's FatherWife's FatherName:BrowneSheedyAddress:Denomination:Occupation:Husband's MotherWife's MotherName:Address:Denomination:Occupation:Witness 1Witness 2Name:HenrySheedy     MichaelSheedy

    ___________________________________________________________________________

     

    SO then . . . it would appear that . . . LIMERICK Co. . . . was the more likely place of Honora's Birth  

     

     so then I searched Limerick . . . and found the following . . . 

     

    Name:Honora Mara       Date of Birth:

    Date of Baptism:12-Oct-1817Address:?Parish/District:PALLASGREEN & TEMPLEBREDONGender:UnknownCountyCo. Limerick

    Denomination:Roman Catholic
    Father:John Mara      Mother:Ann Brien      Occupation:

    That's the best I could do for you . . . I think it is most likely . . . that those are your pair . . . but who knows . . . 

     

    Cheers . . . Eamonn.
