Hi Gins, very kind offer.

Could you look for a Jane Searle (Serle, Searl etc) said to have been born in Cork around 1851. Father said to be Richard a sailor or Captain or Master Mariner depending on record.

This is a long shot. Most census say born Cork, but other say Bristol or Swansea. I can find no trace in England ans Wales BMD and can't find her in 1861 or 1871 census, so maybe was born Ireland.

Thank you for your time.

Morning Gins

Thank you for your very kind offer.

I have a John Brennan born 1849 Athy, Co Kildare

John married Jane Hancock in 1875 in Stoke Damerel, Devon.

(Jane A Hancock born 1853 Menheniot, Liskerd, Cornwall)

John Occ: Soldier.......Father.... James Brennan Occ: Labourer.

My first sighting of John is on the 1871 census.......

1871 England Census
Name John Brennan (Unmarried) Occ: Private
Age 22
Estimated Birth Year abt 1849
Gender Male
Where born Ireland
Civil parish St Botolph
County/Island Essex
Country England
Registration district Colchester
Sub-registration district Colchester First Ward
ED, institution, or vessel The Camp

John and Jane obviously went to Ireland at some point between 1875 and 1877 because that was where their first child was born.

John Patrick Brennan.....Birth 01/12/1877 • Fermoy, Co Cork, Ireland

John Patrick Brennan in the Ireland, Select Births and Baptisms, 1620-1911
Name: John Patrick Brennan
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 1 Dec 1877
Birth Place: Fermoy, Cork, Ireland
Father: John Brennan
Mother: Jane Hancock Brennan

Their second child was born in 1882

William Brennan.....Birth 1882 • Shorncliffe, Kent, England

John does not appear on the 1881 census but as he was as Army man, he could be anywhere.

Wife Jane and son John Patrick are not on the 1881 census either.........so i am rather hoping they might be staying with John's relatives somewhere in Ireland?

1891 England, Wales & Scotland Census Transcription
York Town Road, Sandhurst, Easthampstead, Berkshire, England

John Brennan Head Married Male 41 1850 Servant At R M College Kildare, Ireland
Jane Brennan Wife Married Female 38 1853 - Cornwall,
John Brennan Son Single Male 13 1878 - Cork, Ireland
William Brennan Son - Male 8 1883 Scholar Kent,
George Brennan Son - Male 6 1885 Scholar Essex,
Kathleen C Brennan Daughter - Female 4 1887 - Yorkshire

Thank you Gins.
