Looking for birth of Patrick White or siblings, abt 1856 county Wicklow, parents John White and Bridget Byrne, no dates on parents, marriage births etc. Wicklow stated on death cert as Patricks place of birth. Patrick emmigrated to Nz abt 1876.Any help greatly appreciated.

Have you checked the IGI for a baptism? And the marriage of the parents..............

Too early for certs........................

"Civil registration commenced in 1864 but many Irish records were destroyed in 1922"

Yes I have spent the last week trying every possible combination of parents, mother only, date and place only etc and no firm leads. No trees on ancestry either, so a dead end it seems!!

You can search for free (have to register), but pay to see the transcript of the record.

Not sure if you are still researching this White family of Wicklow, but I am currently doing some research into this family for someone who may have been connected with them around the 1860- 1880's . As such I have some tennent records and possible 1901 census records etc for them that might be of interest to you. Also if you have come across any reference to a Susan ONeill born around 1860 in Co Down, who was a relative of the Whites I would be very interested .
