Hello Sharon Marie - when did these births happen (don't post exact details if the people are still likely to be living).

I presume you mean that a Hennessey married a Rowan, which one was the father's surname?

Have you looked on FreeBMD for a possible marriage between those names?

The couple Rowan / Hennessey posted has possible children:-

James, William, Frank, Wilfred, Mary and Vincent!

It's the only marriage between two people with these names, anywhere in the country and at any time?

my grandmother was mary kathleen her mothers maiden named was hennessey...sorry if im confusing you all im new to this ;-)

You now say that your grandmother's maiden name was Rowan, which means that her father's name was Rowan.
You also say her mother's maiden name was Hennessey, so the marriage must be correct.

Hi Sharon, no you're not confusing us at all!

One way to be 100% sure that the information posted is correct is to buy a copy of your gran's marriage certificate and see what information it gives for her father. you can then cross check with the census info found.

You should be able to find her marriage on FreeBMD http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

and you order copy certificates from GRO, they cost £9.25 http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/

The only Mary K. Rowan I can find was born in 1921 and had mother's maiden name Lydon

Births Sep 1921 (>99%)
Rowan Mary K Lydon Warrington 8c 426

This person had known siblings James, John and Ann.

The parents of above children are probably:-

Marriages Dec 1918 (>99%)
Lydon Florence Rowan Warrington 8c 319
Rowan James Lydon Warrington 8c 319

Do either families look familier?

Sharon Marie

Sharon Marie Report 16 Apr 2013 20:59

yes I think so ...so if Jane hennessey married martin as above ..those children above must have been born before my grandmother, ann , vincent and john is that correct? i think my great aunt anne was born first around 1920 ish...
