Thank you for your help everyone.
I have all the info for Elizabeth from 1861. the family must have come over sometimes after Patricks Birth 1848 Tipperary.
He's the son who married here in Stockport 1868. From that cert I know his father was a James Nelis.Dec confectioner.
I do not know where or when his father James Nelis was borm.
Elizabeth always gives c 1809 Tipperary as her birth place on census & yes thats her Death.
I have all I need to know in England.
& bapt of the children in Tipperary. All children of James Nelis & Elizabeth Holland.
Just need to find their marriage now :-)

They were bapt in Templemore Tipperary.
Came to England 1848-1861.
Don't know anymore about them before 1861 when Elizabeth was a widow, with sons James & Patrick (Eliza I found nearby), on the 1861 Stockport Cheshire England.
As MEALIS.
I don't know where or when her husband James Died. Haven't been able to find his death.
He was said to be a confectioner (DEC), on sons marriage cert & Labourer (DEC) on wifes deaths cert in Stockport 1876.
Don't know what happened to Francis.
You will find all details on ancestry public tree *My Frith/Schofield Tree.

Joan...Where in the Co Tipperary were the children Baptised...?
Did the family stay in Ireland.
The surname Nelis/McNelis..(variations) was found mainly in the Cos Donegal, Down and Tyrone but with some in other areas ...
What else do you know of the family...?

The marriage is thought to have taken place before 1840
Ireland maybe Tipperary.
As I've found 5 Bapt for the children of this couple.
Eliza 1839. Francis 1841. James 1843. Ellen 1846 & Patrick 1848. All Tipperary.

Many Thanks. Joan
