    Hi Glenda,

    Do you have the marriage certificate as that should provide details of her father at least. If not, the references are:
    March quarter 1859, Newcastle under Lyme registration district, volume 6b, page 105. John GRIFFIN and Bridget MULREANEY are on the same page. The certificate will hopefully also provide her age and so give us more to work with.

    What makes you think that she originated in Ireland? Quite possible, of course with the surname of Mulreaney, but have you managed to find her in the 1851 census at all?

    Jan, the 1861 Census is:

    1861 Census: RG9 Piece 1916 fol. 6 p. 6
    Address: Pepper Street, Newcastle Under Lyme

    John Griffen, Head, married, age 24, General Labourer , born ,Ireland
    Bridget Griffen, wife, married, age 22, born Ireland
    Thomas Griffen, son, age 1, born Newcastle, Staffordshire
    Patrick Scully, visitor, married, age 40, General Labourer , born Ireland
    Bridget Scully, visitor, married, age 20, born Ireland
    Mary Scully, visitor, age 2, born Newcastle, Staffordshire
    Anne Scully, visitor, age 11 months, born Newcastle, Staffordshire

    The 1881 Census gives her place of birth as Roscommon:

    1881 Census: RG11 Piece 2700 fol. 53 p. 42
    Address: Court 3, House 3, Lower Street, Newcastle under Lyme

    John Griffin, Head, married, age 39, Labourer in Iron Works, born Galway, Ireland
    Bridget Griffin, wife, married, age 36, born Roscommon, Staffordshire

    - we'll ignore the enumerator's geographically-challenged guess at where Roscommon is!

    Later: Glenda already has some information on Bridget post 1861 and so I think we're looking for information about her before 1859.

    She is also on 1871 census:

    1871 Census: RG10 Piece 2833 fol. 74 p. 44
    Address: Lovatt's Yard, Newcastle Under Lyme

    John Griffin, Head, married, age 35, Forger Mill Man, born Ireland
    Bridget Griffin, wife, married, age 34, born Ireland
    PLUS family.

    Glenda - you've headed this descendents - do you mean that or do you mean her parents and siblings?
