kane Report 13 Jan 2013 19:51

looking for mothers name ? dominicians say kathleen could be kathyrn (latin?)
catherine. and place in ireland she came from
xchecking as i have googled ross more leitrim which is north of longford
as i know ellen kelly was a cousin of peter kane (cain) then i am assuming peter 1833 and catherine 1843 came from the same place
this pinpoints the irish starting point
im pleased after looking for 4yrs to be making headway

I cannot find one for Peter but there is a Peter Kelly son of John and cath Baptised Whittingham Nbld. 1864...could well be Peter if my memory serves me well you were after looking up the Coast for the families..?


kane Report 13 Jan 2013 20:01

yes the kanes and kellys where in northumberland, north sunderland, belford,holywell, murton , backworth
i know kanes exist in holywell
being rc families i am not sure if there churches still exist
the other point puzzling me is although peter 1833 and mary wallace kane 1832(1822) are down as buried in westoe there is no trace of them, being irish could they have been buried in ireland? was it a common practise?


Eringobragh1916 Report 14 Jan 2013 10:07

I am lost with the Peter Kane(1833) down as being buried Westoe...where did you get your info.when did they die..?
I would be suprised if they were buried back home ..usually the families hadn't a penny to Bless themselves with wasn't uncommon in the recent past for folk to go home but
not the time period your looking at.

There are plenty Kane/Cain buried in Harton but I cant see a Peter.
Tyneside archives have the Westoe Burial Book

MarieCeleste Report 19 Jul 2014 23:12

What is her birth place on the various census?


kane Report 20 Jul 2014 06:49

ireland, earliest knwn place in england is 1855 in north sunderland northumberland
birth of ist son patrick. , may have married in ireland. number of cain/kane family in northumberland (may be alnwick area) its a long shot, maybe leitrim/roscommon area
can only keep trying
thanks kane

ie 1851 or 1861 or 1871 census
thanks kane


greyghost Report 20 Jul 2014 20:14

Bridget's marriage q3 1861 so still Cain for 1861 census. Are you certain she married Edward Boyle rather than James DAvison.

What age would Bridget be?

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Marriages Sep 1861 (>99%)

fairley sure , age 23, very interested to see 1861 census?
thanks kane


greyghost Report 20 Jul 2014 21:46

Haven't found census, just saying that as the marriage wasn't until Q3 then she should be found as Cain.
