The baptism record for my g-grandfather, 10 April 1826, Adamstown Parish, Wexford indicates that he was the son of Judy Clarke & “Ned” Ryan. Judy & “Ned” are also used as the parent’s names for the baptisms of some other children. Difficulties have arisen in identifying the birth/baptism record for this “Ned” Ryan. While “Ned” is often an aka for “Edward”, “Ned” was also identified as “William” as the father on the death certificate of his eldest son. Searches for compatible baptisms for “Ned” or “Edward” Ryan have not revealed any feasible baptisms. However, searches for “William” Ryan have revealed two possibilities:
William Ryan, bpt 10Dec 1796, Enniscorthy, Ferns, Wexford, of parents William Ryan & Mary Crow. – OR -
William Ryan, bpt 29Mar1798, Templetown, Wexford, of parents Patrick Ryan & Mary Power.
I am hoping to find some additional clarification of “Ned’s” baptismal forename etc before or during an upcoming visit to these Parish Districts in Ireland.
