    Default Patrick Dunn & Esther butler

    Hi everyone, any help with the following brickwall greatly appreciated.

    Patrick Dunn born in Ireland anywhere between 1814-1817 - unclear on precise year. Patrick married Esther Butler born around 1820/21. Census records are unclear of birthplace, one saying Ireland, another Liverpool.

    They married 1842.
    Registration Year 1842
    Registration Quarter Jul-Aug-Sep
    Registration district Sheffield
    Inferred County Yorkshire West Riding
    Volume 22
    Page 403

    Its believed Esther died:
    4 Oct 1891,4 harvest lane, sheffield

    Any help on confirmation of this info and their parentage in particular would be really appreciated to move the family tree forward.

    Thanks

    Patrick and Esther had a daughter Mary Ann Dunn 18421888. 20 Apr 1842 ct 8 Hawley croft, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England taken from the 1861 census.

    Buying the marriage certificate should give the details of their fathers. Also the witnesses could be family members too.

    Hi emeltee, I haven't found a marriage ban record, but have located a marriage index record. There are other household members listed but none with the Dunn or butler surname.

    It seems Ellen was baptised twice and with conflicting birth dates. I wonder if one parent was Wesleyan and the other RC.

    Ellen Butler, born 2 Nov 1830, Liverpool, Lancaster
    Baptism 25 Dec 1830, Denomination: Wesleyan
    Father: George Butler; Mother: Mary Farmer

    Ellen Butter, born 26 Oct 1830
    Baptism Date: 15 Nov 1830, St Anthony's, Liverpool
    Father: George Butter; Mother: Mary Farmer

    John Butler, born 15 Aug 1828
    Baptised 29 Aug 1828, St Werburgh's, Chester, Cheshire
    Father: George Butler; Mother: Mary Farmer
