Marriages Sep 1939 (>99%)

Barry John Donohoe Stepney 1c 711
Donohoe Anastasia Barry Stepney 1c 711

Not seeing any births in England/Wales...did they move to Ireland as there are some there

Have you looked to see if anyone on here has either of them in their trees, by using the search trees box above?

Anastatia Donohoe
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1916
Registration district: Loughrea
Birth Country: Ireland
Volume: 4
Page: 253
FHL Film Number: 101076

But there is a marriage in Loughrea in 1945 for an Anastasia.

pm from David to say this is Anastasia's death

England & Wales, Death Index: 1916-2006

Date of Registration: Mar 2001
Age at Death: 90

Maiden name was O'connor born Ireland previously married to Donohoe two children born in the 40s Anastasia and Christopher in the name of Barry/O'connor

Maybe her death cert was registered by one of her children

David could you reply on the thread by adding in the white box at the bottom of all the messages

So possibly this birth?:
Anastatia O'Connor

Registration district: Dublin North
Birth Country: Ireland
Volume: 2

FHL Film Number: 101074


David Report 23 Jun 2012 22:46

Jax/ Patchem Thank you both for your input. Both confirms what I have.
I do have hand writen Birth certificate, but large parts are not fully readable
D.O.B 2?/01/1911
Anastasia O'connor Marr'd James Donohoe 1929 Dublin.
Anastasia Donohoe is listed on my Baptism cert. as my Godmother. dated 5/12/1937, I know it was a RC Church in Hammersmith area.
I believe Anastasia had a Brother Christopher Joseph b Dec 1915 Dublin
Again have an almost unreadable birth cert.
It is possible he died in July 1941 Merchant Navy Seaman
I also believe Anastasia had Daughter Agnes Donohoe b Jul 1937 Hammersmith, any subsiquent info on her would be helpful.
Thank you for your time.

The Agnes born in 1937 is Agnes M Donohoe.
Have you been in contact with anyone who has her in their trees on here?


patchem Report 24 Jun 2012 07:47

Ancestry has marriages for Agnes C, or Agnes.
The Agnes marriage is in Woolwich, 1960, to a Mr Barry, but she also possibly dies as Agnes Barry with wrong birth date (corresponding to an Agnes Donohoe born in Ireland in 1936).


David Report 24 Jun 2012 14:04

Patchem/ Gwyn Thank you both, info you have supplied confirms info I have.
The Death Cert. of Christopher not a lot of help. Informant listed as Officer of Grimsby Council. ( Christopher died in North Sea, result of enemy action).
Agnes M Donohoe (Donohue) I believe marr'd Peter R Dady Mar.1958 Poplar
I also believe Christopher marr'd Bridget Manning Jul? 1940
On paper Iam certain Christopher and Anastasia are brother and sister
but how do I prove it??
Thank you for your help.



patchem Report 24 Jun 2012 17:15

The Dady's are showing on for 2007

Have you got the marriage certificates for Fathers' names?


David Report 24 Jun 2012 18:59

Patchem info from Marriage cert.

Marriage date 08/02/1958
Peter Ronald Dady 22yrs Batchelor Railway Guard 144 Bromley High Street B**** (can't read) E3 William Dady Interior Decorater
Agnes Marie Donohue 20yrs Spinster no occupation address as above James Christopher Donohue (deceased) Merchant Seaman
I realise age does not truily match for Agnes, but one of witnesses listed is a J.Barry So I am fairly hopeful this is the right Agnes.



sophie Report 25 Feb 2013 22:40

i Have a grandad called john barry, who iam looking for on this, he has a son lee barry which is my dad


patchem Report 25 Feb 2013 23:38

Welcome to the boards.
I think you would do better to start your own posting.
Could you say where your father was born, and where you believe his father was born, with some birth dates, if known, and mother's names if known also.

Added; Lee probably born 1962.


patchem Report 25 Feb 2013 23:43

Is this your grandfather's marriage, and is he still alive?
Marriages Mar 1958
AKERS Joan B BARRY Edmonton 5e 764
BARRY John AKERS Edmonton 5e 764

Have you got the marriage certificate for more information?


sophie Report 26 Feb 2013 01:33

i do not know how to work this my dad lee barry was born in 1962 n yes that is my grandads marriage i have no idea if he is still alive i donot speak to my dad(lee barry) so i cant ask any info he lost contact with him too


patchem Report 26 Feb 2013 07:07

You need to work backwards from what you know.
So, get the marriage certificate.
They can be obtained from the GRO, and you can use the information that I have posted.

There is a possible birth in Edmonton for Joan Akers, and in 'London' for many for John Barry. Are you also looking for Joan?
