Barbara did put her query on the right board in the end.


Barbara Report 4 Aug 2021 22:40

I clearly don't navigate around this website very well, so here I am again.
I am looking for more information on my ancestor Mary Ann Honey.
I know she was born in Ireland in 1815.
Her father's name was Thomas Honey, and her mother's name was Elizabeth (I don't have her surname).
Some of the scant information I have gathered points to her family residing in Carrick-On-Suir, in the Tipperary region, but I'm not 100% per cent sure.
Mary Ann Honey married George Peek in 1831, when she was 16, and he was 31, in London, and they had 13 children.
George Peek died in 1847 when he was 47.
When Mary Ann was 57 she married a man, surname Johnson, and she went on to live in Surrey.
I'm desperate to know her family history, whether she had any siblings, how she met George Peek. He was from Middlesex in London.
I keep drawing a blank, it's a real enigma.
Can anyone help?

Please read the first two paragraphs of the previous post.

They are still relevant.

I'm trying to find my Irish ancestors.
I don't have much to go on;
Mary Ann Honey, born 1815.
Her father is Thomas Honey, her mother Elizabeth (I don't have her maiden name).
I don't know when the parents were born.
Mary Ann came to London and married George Peek in 1831, when she was 16.
She is my great, great, great grandmother.
George Peek was 15 years older, and they had 13 children.
I really want to find out where in Ireland she came from, any siblings, other Honey relatives.
Can anyone help please?

Kathy ................

please do not ask questions on this thread, it only confuses the intent, which was to provide information on where to look.

Open a new thread to ask your question on this Board, Find Ancestors or General Chat.

I will say that there are no records of traffic between Ireland and the UK ............ passenger lists were not kept.

Any one no how l can find out when my Grandad came to Liverpool from Ireland
before 1908/1909 thanks

Thank you very helpful


David Report 28 Dec 2018 11:53

Thank you links. In my experience some of them let you enter information you wish to expand on, names dates places, only to immediately respond insufficient information or incorrect information. Either or both may be correct, but you've volunteered the information you already had (right or wrong)

Anyway, thanks again for the links.

Search the Civil Registrations and view certificate details .
Click on a name and if it has ‘image’ on it you can view the pdf file.
It can be saved too.

Ireland Illustrated, 1680-1860, is a database of over 500 images of Ireland, with accompanying text, drawn from more than 50 manuscript and printed works, and highlighting several neglected or rarely accessible sources. It provides an opportunity to examine how, in the case of Ireland, diverse representations were created in the course of two centuries.

"The Down Survey of Ireland
Taken in the years 1656-1658, the Down Survey of Ireland is the first ever detailed land survey on a national scale anywhere in the world. The survey sought to measure all the land to be forfeited by the Catholic Irish in order to facilitate its redistribution to Merchant Adventurers and English soldiers. Copies of these maps have survived in dozens of libraries and archives throughout Ireland and Britain, as well as in the National Library of France. This Project has brought together for the first time in over 300 years all the surviving maps, digitised them and made them available as a public online resource."

When searching for a Birth, Death or Marriage on the Civil Registrations on this wonderful website, be aware that although some records do not show the maiden name for the mother, when searching for a Birth, but by clicking on the child's name it will open another page and if it has 'image' click on it to view the details.

You might be lucky to find a Baptism too on their Church Records...but don't rely on the Birth Date when it is given, as I've found numerous that are incorrect. Not surprising judging by the hand writing on some of them!

More and more Marriages and Deaths are now available to view!

I struggled with all these sites and the couple I tried I got lost. Trying to find EMMA KEELEY b1830, father Thomas. All I know so far is born in Ireland. Any help much appreciated.



Joy Report 9 Sep 2016 15:51 UPDATE: 3:30pm: And the site is back online. (So is the NAI's website.)


Joy Report 9 Sep 2016 14:13

[url][/url] "UPDATE: 9 September, 12:30pm: The site has been offline for over an hour. So, too, the National Archives of Ireland's Genealogy website (or, at least, its databases). Not sure what the problem is, but I'll advise when they're up and running again."


Joy Report 7 Sep 2016 23:15 Ireland's historical registers of births, marriages and deaths are now online
The General Register Office of Ireland's historical civil registers of birth, marriage and death have been uploaded to the free state-run

As anticipated, they follow the 100-75-50 years access rule and they are free. If the index entry gives you the option of an image, you download a pdf of the full register page in which that birth, marriage or death certificate appears.

I have in my possession a couple of old
Ordnance street maps of Belfast (east) 1902
