Yvonne Report 27 Dec 2012 22:52

I am looking for the parents of Martha Ireland b. abt 1830. I know for sure that she married Joseph Henry Leach in 1854 at St. Nicholas Church, Liverpool (I have cert.). Her father is shown as Isaac Ireland, Ropemaker. Witnesses to the marriage were John Ireland and Ellen Ireland.

I can find a Martha Ireland in the 1841 and 1851 censuses with father Isaac and mother Mary, but Isaac's occupation is given as labourer. There's a baptism given for Martha, parents Isaac and Mary, but again Isaac's occupation is given as labourer.

There is another Isaac Ireland shown in the 1841 and 1851 censuses with wife as Hannah. This Isaac is shown as roper, or ropemaker. The problem is that there is no Martha shown with these parents in the 1841 and 1851 censuses.

I did find a baptism for a Martha Ireland, 27 Sep 1829, to parents Isaac and Hannah, with Isaac's occupation fairly illegible but looks like cord or card something. Because of this I'm thinking that Martha's parents are Isaac and Hannah but why would she not show up in the census.

Any suggestions.

Hello Yvonne - what is Martha's birthplace on later census?

This must be the baptism you refer to:

Liverpool, Lancashire, England, Baptisms, 1813-1906
Name: Martha Ireland
Baptism Date: 27 Sep 1829
Parish: Toxteth Park St James
Father's Name: Isaac Ireland
Mother's Name: Hannah Ireland

Looks like Isaac's occupation is a cordwainer (shoemaker)

Address looks like Wright Street, Harrington.

On the 1854 marriage Martha's address is given as Strand Street. The witnesses were John Ireland and Ellen Ireland - have you followed them up?

Yvonne - I meant on the later census after she was married, that may give a better idea of birthplace.

Martha and Ellen were both female servants on the 1841 that Vera has posted.

Girls could be put into service from around 10 so that would be why Martha isn't showing with her family on any census.

Yvonne Report 27 Dec 2012 23:25

I looked at the 1861 and 1871 census and place of birth is given as Liverpool, so that doesn't really help.

As to the John and Ellen on the marriage certificate, I did try looking to see if there was a marriage or if they were just brother and sister. There are several marriages that could work, so that didn't really help.

Everything seems to point to Isaac and Hannah but I just can't be sure.

Thanks
Yvonne

Joseph and Martha's first daughter was mary Hannah Leach so I should thin the parents are Issac and Hannah.
