Hello, On behalf of a friend I am trying to find the marriage of Patrick Quinn to an Ellen (possibly Hay). Their first child was Margaret born in Manchester in 1858. Patrick was born in 1829 and Ellen 1834. Patrick was in the 44th Foot Regiment. The marriage may have been in Ireland. Thanks.

Where were these people born?

If the child's birth was registered, her mother's maiden name will be on the cert

In the 1850 marriage Margee posted, Ellen seems to have been a widow, or at least, she had two surnames recorded.

Your friend might need to buy the birth cert of one of Ellen and Patrick's children to find out her maiden name.
