I have recently discovered the marriage record for my 3 X great grandparents (see attached).  Richard Bowes and Mary Downey married on 26 Aug 1819 in Durrow.  The record states that the name of the parish is Durrow Aughmacart.   I know of two children who were born in Ireland prior to the family's emigration to Canada prior to 1830.  The children born in Ireland are;  John Bowes ca 1821-23 and Timothy Bowes ca 1823-25 (not sure if they lived in the same parish.) Their next child was born in Kingston, ON ca 1830.  I'm also wondering if the baptism record for a Mary Downey Apr 1802 to parents Pat Downey and Ally McGrath from the same parish would be my Mary Downey.

I am hoping to locate further information in regard to this family especially if there is a record of Richard Bowes and Mary Downey's ancestors.

Cheers and thank you,
