I'm looking for help the 1841 census shows Peter Connell born abt. 1801 Ireland, his wife Phoebe is born abt. 1802 Abergele The eldest child recorded is Mary Ann born abt. 1831 in Flint. In 1841 at the time of the census they are living in Mane Street but by June they had moved to Church Street. As far as I know the family were Catholic. Is there anyone who can find any other information for me please as it appears the Irish connection is impossible.|banghead|

Coleham St
Shrewsbury St. Julian, Shropshire, Eng

Peter 50 Head - Rail Labourer, Ireland
Phoebe 49 Penbigh, Abergele, Wales
Daniel 15 Flints
Catherine 8 Flints

Couldn't find them all together in other yrs, as are many Peter Connell's.
There was 1 Peter Connell 1881 in an Abbey, I assume a workhouse from what it looked like.

Thank you so much I did have Peter's death (liver disease). I have now found Phoebe's death in 1880 and the surprise Joseph's birth 1858 certs. ordered.
Catherine turns up on the 1881 census in the Atcham workhouse as O'Connor, and I am unable to find Joseph at all I may have to search death registers. I know that Daniel is in Abergavenny in April 1861 and in the June qtr of 1862 but am unable to find him until he arrives in Bristol in 1871. As for Mary Ann she married William North in 1856 and then disappears totally.
Anyway thanks again.
