Can anyone tell me if there are surviving birth records for around 1840 -1850 in Enniskillen? My great grandfather, William James Robinson, was married in Queensland in 1872 and said his age was 26 at the time. He said he was born in Enniskillen to Richard Robinson a publican and Jane (Wilson). I have no idea when he arrived in Australia or at what port.

I believe civil registration only began in 1864 in Ireland, so you may need to refer to parish registers which could still be in the care of the local priest

Know what parish in Enniskillen? Religion?

Also you can try to look up wills for his parents!

Licence records for publicans!

Hal/Swan,thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I do not know the parish or religion.He was married to a girl from Ofally in Queensland in 1872 by a Presbyterian minister out in the sticks.It may have been a case of getting the first passing person "of the cloth" regardless of denomination, to perform the ceremony.

Well Richard Robinson would have had to be licenced to be a publican in Enniskillen!! So it will be recorded, might be worth a try?

Brian,

The names you have listed suggest to me that your ancestors were either Church of Ireland or Presbyterian. You could contact the C of I via www.ireland dot anglican org and go to the genealogy link.

The main Presbyterian Church in Enniskillen seems to be in Lisnarrick Rd, Enniskillen BT94 1PX. You could write to them at that address or try www.presbyterianireland dot org.

Don't forget to Yahoo too...... Keyword search "Enniskillen" "Publican" "Robinson" etc, otherwise a visit to PRONI in Belfast for the records.

Don't have time to Google/Yahoo it right now but there could easily be something from your searches!!

Thanks Elwyn Soutter for that info. There may be mote to his being married by a Presbyterian minister than I thought.

Hall/Swan, thanks for the tips. I did not expect you to do a search for me, I just thought you may have known off hand the name of a repository for the records.

Not a problem Brian.. I might have to look for one of mine too.

The only place I know of would be PRONI....as a repository.

The Petty Sessions in the local court would hear their application for annual license applcation...

Maybe Google the Petty Sessions for Enniskillen..?? etc

As for Presby's....A LOT MORE!! my g/uncles were 1st Presby's, all buried in same g/yard, my g/father was 2nd Presby so had to be buried elsewhere... even they didn't "get along"!!|rant|

I am going to my local library today so will search for you as they have all the Irish records, also going to Belfast on Friday so can do more leg work for. Any records I can find I'll let you know.

How would one going about tracing family in Enniskillen??
Looking for John Cox, g grandfather, born in Enniskillen 1783. Immigrated to York, Quebec in 1833. Settled Goderich Ontario. Died 1835. Likely farm family.
Had sons George, David, James and John; and daughters Margaret, Anne, Jane, all who immigrated with him and a daughter Fanny who stayed in Ireland. Believe they were Protestant.
Any information would be helpful??
