My original thread has vanished……. so let’s start again….

We all know how difficult it is tracing the Irish so if any of your ancestors came from Co. Dublin, place their names here and lets see if we can help one another knock down some brick walls!

My GGG Grandparents are from Dublin:

Francis SWAN c 1823 ( a Brass Finisher) and his wife Elizabeth (maiden name unknown) c 1831 had the following children in Dublin

Daniel c 1851
Maria Anna G c 1853 - my GG Grandmother
Eliza c 1855
Ann c 1857
Edward c 1859
Isabella c 1861

The family then moved to Liverpool and continued to grow

John c 1867
Robert c 1869

Maria married William Seddon Meadows in Liverpool in 1875 - but I can't read all of her name, so don't know what the G stands for (could be Glenda / Gwenda ?)

I would love to hear from anyone who recognises this family or knows anything about them

My G Grandparents;
Henry Edward Herra b.1850, m to Deborah Good.

They had Mary 1871, Frances 1873, Deborah 1875, Edward James 1876, Francis 1880. There may have been a Harold also.

Henry Edward's second marriage to an Elizabeth Angela produced Dominic 1901, Catherine 1903, George 1906, Patricia 1908, and Louisa 1911. This family is on the 1911 Dublin census. Then they moved to the UK..

Hoping to hear from somebody!

Have you sent off for either of the birth certificates of the children who were born in liverpool as this will give you their mother's maiden name which should help you to find a connection...or some other info

You stated that your GGG Grandparents are from Dublin, Francis SWAN c 1823 ( a Brass Finisher) and his wife Elizabeth (maiden name unknown) c 1831. and that these two were born in Liverpool.

John c 1867
Robert c 1869

Hi Teresa

Thanks for that - no I haven't ordered on of the younger boys' birth certs.

I do feel silly! I will will do that as once I know her maiden name I should be able to order a marriage certificate as I have a rough idea of when to look.

Thank you

*stinkermurdock* Report 21 Feb 2009 12:38

My info is a little sketchy, but this is what I have

I am looking for an Edward Ringwood, who had a daughter called Lizzie or Elizabeth Ringwood. she married in 1908 to Charles Sims in the registrars office in Dublin. Her father was dead at tht time of her marriage, occupation is a labourer. Elizabeths address at marriage is 33 The Coombe. This is the only information that I have at this time. I have looked at the 1911 census for Dublin, and there is a Margaret Ringwood who is a Widow living at 8 Coombe Street, but I am not sure if this is the same place.

If anyone has any info or advice I would be very grateful.

If the marriage certificate gives her age, you could try and order her birth certificate from Ireland to find out for sure, her mother's at least you know her father's name..Edward Ringwood. for Southern Ireland.

You cannot order on line but you can by post as long as you have a credit card.
If then can find it, your credit card will be charged in £'s but the receipt will be in €'s.

Just go to their website and print off the application form and fill in all the details that you know. If she married in Co Dublin there is a good chance that she came fom there...but no guarantee of course.

You can also search the IGI records on
for Edward Ringwood or just the surname Ringwood under 'Region' and select British Isles, Ireland and Co. Dublin.

You can also search on here:

Just enter Edward Ringwood then enter just Dublin, Ireland.
This will show all records that have been transcribed so far for that name and you might find his marriage record.

Just selecting Births/Christenings, Marriage or Deaths doesn't always bring up a specific record for the name you are looking for.

Hope this helps you.

Hi Teresa

Thank you for the advice. On the marrige cert it is saying full age. Is that the same as the Uk? 21?. By 1911 I know that she was in the Uk in Essex so I have a rough date of birth, and have found a christening inn South Dublin which is where she married, but 2 yrs out from what the uk 1911 census said. I have also found a death for an Edward Ringwood in Dublin south in 1902 he was 45, so this could be the right guy, he was the only match that came up at the moment. Think next step is to buy birth cert, just to rule it out. lol.

Thanks again

Teresa With Irish Blood in Me Veins Report 23 Feb 2009 11:29

Hi Tracie

Yes 'Full Age' on the Irish Marriage certificates means that they are aged 21 or over...just like the UK.

You can write a little note and attach it to the application form saying that she was full age when married and quote the date of her marriage.

You could also mention her recorded age on the 1911 UK census too as a guide.

Which ever approx birth year you choose to add on the application form..they will search back 2 years for you...but if you ask them to search back further it will cost a bit more.....not sure what the extra charge will be though.

Hi Teresa

Thank you for all the advice. I will download the application form today and send off.... Fingers crossed.

I have purchased certs since I last posted, and now discovered that I also have O'NEILL ancestors from Dublin, along with RINGWOOD.

Hoping to hear from anyone.
