can anyone help, I am trying to get farther back than 1881 when Robert was 24, I know he came over from Ireland and married a Catherine Finn in Lancashire I have them on the 1881 census. I dont know any details of Robert before he came to England I know his father was named Michael from his marriage certificate and that he was dead prior to the marriage but don't know his mothers christian name. I know she lived with him and Catherine in 1885 for a while also his sister Mary but don't know anymore, can anyone help me?
Thanks Heather
