Seeking info on marriage date and DOB's, probably Limerick/Clare around 1830's. I have a Thomas Meade born c1798 and Bridget born c1819, but the age gap seems to0 large as first child born 1834. Any thoughts / info would be welcome.

Thanks, Peter Meade

  • Peter:

    I searched on two subscription sites and only located two baptismal records in Co. Clare.

    John Meade baptized in January 1850 (no specific day listed)  at Doora and Kilraghtis RC parish father Thomas Meade and mother Bridget McMahon

    Henry Meade baptized September 19 1852 at Quin RC parish same parents

    Quin parish borders Doora and Kilraghtis

    Are these two children part of the family you are looking for?

  • Hello Roger,

    Thank you for your quick response. Yes, John and Henry were the last two of five children. Martin was first born in 1834. There is also a possibility of a daughter, Maria, born around 1847 - but unconfirmed. I have two possible dates for Thomas being 1798 mentioned previously and also 1810 in Limerick. It seems that Thomas and Family moved around in both Clare and Limerick counties.
