Rosamund...If you check out the 1901 Irish Census for the Co Wexford you will find the following family living next door to Sophia Carty on Mary St. given the details I would be suprised if he is not a son of Sophia snr.

Residents of a house 48 in Mary Street (New Ross Urban, Wexford)
Carty William 40 Male Head of Family Roman Catholic Co Wexford Mason Read and write - Married -
Carty Mary 35 Female Wife Roman Catholic Co Wexford Domestic Servant Read and write - Married -
Carty Michael 12 Male Son Roman Catholic Co Wexford Scholar Read and write Irish and English
Carty Rose 11 Female Daughter Roman Catholic Co Wexford Scholar Read and write -
Carty Sophia 9 Female Daughter Roman Catholic Co Wexford Scholar Read and write -
Carty John 8 Male Son Roman Catholic Co Wexford Scholar Read and write -
Carty William 6 Male Son Roman Catholic Co Wexford Scholar Read -
Carty James 2 Male Son Roman Catholic Co Wexford - - -
Carty Thomas Male Son Roman Catholic Co Wexford -


1911 shows Wm.and family living 5 Cockpit Lane.

I cannot locate Sophia snr 1911 but at 47 Mary Lane is living a Mary Ellen WILLIAMS with her 3 children....(the children who who with Sophia snr. 1901 are now with their widowed mother)...she is also a Maternity Nurse Sophia snr.was a Midwife...I imagine Sophia snr. was Mary Ellens mother....

I have found 2 Births for the New Ross area Michael Francis and Thomas Patrick..parents listed as Michael Carty and Sophia Eade...it is a possibility that these are the grandparents of Sophia....

Name: Michael Francis Carty
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 15 Jul 1868
Birthplace: New Ross, Wexford, Ireland
Father's Name: Michael Carty
Mother's Name: Sophia Eady

Sophie (Sophy) Carty was my grandmother. She was born in Ireland and moved to England. I can only find her on the 1911 English Census, working in a house in London, and also in 1915 on her marriage certificate. She married my grandfather, Richard Lane in Marylebone. Her father, Andrew is listed on the marriage cert, as a stone mason. I think I've found him on the 1911 Irish Census living in Wexford. I want to find Sophie in Ireland and trace back her family.
Thanks, Rosamund
