Could this be John in 1911 census? He's the only one born in Ireland.

Looks like PollyPoppet and I have the same family, but are they Anthony's?

Anthony, when were your grandad and his brothers born?

EDIT: Looks like Batman's Daughter has found them. Well done.

Hi,Just in case you don't have the marriage cert.

John Donaghue to Mary Allen, 1885,Q3,8b,480.

Toxteth Park,Liverpool.

BatMansDaughter Report 7 Jun 2010 11:54

So maybe on the 1911 census John gives his birth place as Liverpool? If he likes to swap his birthplace around and also his birth year it isn't going to be easy to trace him back??!!!

Tony... who were the witnesses on John and Mary's marriage certificate?

BatMans Daughter,

The witnesses to the Mariage were Cathrine Allen , and Jeffrey Sheridan , the mystery continues I notice on his marriage certificate he and his best man don't sign , but place an X in place and his surname is spelt incorrect (Donaghue ) ,also on the 1891 census it states he was born in 1851 ,the 1901 census 1853 and marriage certificate 1856 ,he must be like the queen has a few birthdays .

Do you have any details of who also lived at this address.

Tony...I wouldn't worry too much about the X in the signature column for John and Jeffrey....also the spelling of John's surname...
The X only indicates he was unable to write his name..the spelling would be how the PP spelt the name....if John was also unable to read ...(very common) then he would accept what was written by the PP
