I've found my G. Grandparents on the 1881 Census - Robert Barry (46)born in Cork, Ireland,wife Mary(44)born in Manchester and have been trying to find their marriage. Looking on 1837 site I've found a Robert Barry in the April/June quarter in 'Poplar' registration district. The only 'Poplar' I know is in East End of London. Are there any others as their eldest child on the Census (20 years old)is born in Barnsey, Yorkshire and I'm thinking that 'London' is a bit far! Also any ideas how I can trace Roberts birth?
