Hi,
Looking for any information on my wife's ancestors Patrick Flynn from Barnfield, Co. Mayo and Ellen Barrett from Ballymacredmond, Co. Mayo.

They were married at the chapel in Knockmore on the 23rd January 1868,  Shortly before moving to Normanton in West Yorkshire.

Pats father was John Flynn who had died by the time of the marriage and Ellens father was, I believe, Michael, or Micheal Flynn, a labourer at the time.

Any help gratefully received

Regards
Steve

Hello Steve,

Searching for family history can be both frustrating and rewarding!

Before 1864 records were kept in the form of church and parish records; while some of these have regrettably been lost over the years, all the surviving records have been sorted into county-based genealogical centres. For County Mayo, it will be North Mayo Heritage Centre in Ballina County Mayo.

In 1864 civil registration was introduced in Ireland, which is when we started seeing the formal registration of births, marriages, adoptions, and deaths. These records have been kept at the General Register Office of Ireland. As they were married in 1868, this record will be found at their offices and will hopefully give more information on their circumstances.

There is another community post on a 3 step guide to tracing Irish Family which may also be of interest to you in your research for your wife's family. Please take a look and see if there is anything that would help you further.

Have you had an opportunity to visit the chapel in Knockmore?

Speak soon,

Martin
