I am looking for information on the birth of J Riley. He was born in 1817 and he died in England around 1869, his wife's name was Anna Riley nee Gray. they are mentioned on the 1861 census in Staff's Uk, but I cannot find his birth place which was Scholan. hope some one has some info.

Welcome to Brit-Gen Ted. here's the 1861 census just to give some background for those who want to help
10 New Street Stoke upon Trent
John Riley 44 labourer
Anna 42
William 17 Potter
Michael 9 factory boy
Thomas 5 scholar

All born Scholan (looks like that to me on the image) Ireland. So they haven't been in England very long as Thomas was born c1856 in Ireland

I wonder if the place of birth might be Srowland, which is a townland just north of Athy, in Co Kildare. It's in the civil parish of Kilberry.
