And to fill in a bit more --

Name: Christopher Quigley
Death Registration Month/Year: 1947
Age at death (estimated): 82 = dob c1865
Registration district: Salford
Inferred County: Lancashire
Volume: 10f
Page: 420

There's no Mary Byrne death in Salford 1968 and I'm not seeing another that matches (dob c1910).

Name: Patrick Byrne
Death Registration Month/Year: 1958
Age at death (estimated): 56 = dob c1902
Registration district: Salford
Inferred County: Lancashire
Volume: 10f
Page: 535

Margaret Donough married Timothy Guiney in 1942; he died in 1948. She married John Fitzgerald in 1953.

I don't see a death for a Thomas M*gh or Donough in Salford to fit.

We do have Mary Quigley Byrne's mother's name - rootgatherer matched up the marriage records:

Christopher Quigley + Margaret O'Brien 1909

But there isn't a Margaret Quigley death in 1910 when Mary would have been born -- Jul-Sep quarter if I found the right birth for Mary up above.

Now, looking for the children of Patrick and Mary (Quigley) Byrne in Salford ... trying for the more uncommon names ...

Pauline married in 1966 in Salford. There's a quirk with her husband's surname. They have four children.

The likely marriage for Catherine is in 1965 in Salford. (Your opening post is confusing -- Catherine A born 1947, Catherine A died 1945.) They seem to have 3 children. Unfortunately I think she is deceased.

Name: Catherine Ann Astbury
Birth Date: 3 Dec 1947
Death Registration Month/Year: Aug 1998
Age at death (estimated): 50
Registration district: Trafford
Inferred County: Cheshire
Register number: C40A
District and Subdistrict: 0151C
Entry Number: 263

I'd be fairly confident this is the death of son Eugene:

Name: Eugene Patrick Byrne
Birth Date: 22 Feb 1933
Death Registration Month/Year: Feb 1987
Age at death (estimated): 54
Registration district: Manchester
Inferred County: Lancashire
Volume: 38
Page: 702

I'll PM you the names the people who seem to be Pauline's and Catherine's children.

Sent possible contact info for a possible child of Catherine -- and someone here at GR has that person in their family tree.

Even better, the child of Pauline whose name starts with T seems to be a member of GR with herself in her tree.

If you just google "73 pill lane", Kelly, it gives you results in Dublin city directories.

If Liam would reveal his sources it might help others of us for future use too. ;)


You got the info I PMed?

Finaly recieved the marriage certificate this morning so just thought i would just let u all no that
Patrick Byrne married Mary Quigley on the 13th Feb 1927 at St micheals Dublin
It shows that Parick Byrnes Father was also called Patrick Byrne (labour)
and marys father as Christopher Quigley (labour)
It also gives both fathers address as Patrick 40 kehoe square, and christopher as 109 kehoe square but thats as much info as it shows so looks like i might have to investigate liams link with 73 Pill Lane and christopher Quigley

i will keep you all posted again
Thanks Kelly x

i will again keep you poste

Kelly, have you tried to contact the GR member who has the probable children of Catherine and Pauline in their family trees??

Kelly, I would send for the marriage certificate for Christopher and Margaret O'Brien to get her father's name. We don't know if she was single or widowed when she married Christopher as she already had a child. The 1911 gives her birthplace as England so we may be able to trace her on the census records.

Hi everyone

Just to keep u all updated.

I applied for christopher quigleys birth certificate, from that ive got his parents William Quigley and Mary Quigley (Coleman)

Kelly, why not inquire of the Irish site where you got the birth certificates??

Glad to see that everything has gone according to prediction so far!

Kelly Report 16 May 2011 20:45

when i showed my grandad the birth certificate of his mum mary quigley (byrne) he was rather shocked to see that about his mum, he didnt have a clue.

And after some more searching onthe net i think ive found his mums death in 1912 right after giving birth to a male, so i think thats where the confusion has come from.

But when i finally track down the marriage certificate and get the name of margaret obriens father and a bit more info on her i will then be able to trace her as she was born in england

And hopefully find the relatives of margarets other child maggie obrien and try and find out what happened to her as she was mary quigleys sister

really enjoying this now just wish some things were much more easier to track down lol

Hello my name is Angela, and I am the Daughter of Maggie McDonough (Guinea, Fitzgerald) and was born on Woodbine Street, Salford in 1958. We did live with my grandad Thomas McDonough.
My grandad died in London, as he was a Chelsea Pensioner. I think this was around 1966/1967.
I know some of the Byrnes family, and would be happy to help you fill in the blanks of our family tree.
