    Default Mother's maiden name

    Sorry, I don't have that information. I searched a banns for Daniel Sullivan and Mary Ann Drummond but concluded that this record didn't match the details I have. Census shows his wife to be Irish and this person was not.

    Hi
    I tried searching for a possible maiden name by using the GRO birth index for the births of teir children but in each case there were choices! Except for Mathias where there was no choice at all! Using Math* *sullivan on FreeBMD no results.

    Then I found a marriage for a Daniel Sullivan to a Mary Sullivan

    Daniel Sullivan, full age bachelor, skin dresser, father John Sullivan a gardener
    Marriage - 7 Jan 1850
    at St John, Clerkenwell, Islington, England
    Father - John Sullivan
    Spouse - Mary Sullivan, full age, spinster, father John Sullivan a labourer.
    Both living at New Court.
    Parish Register


    so looked for births with mmn Sullivan and there is this one

    SULLIVAN, TIMOTHY mother's maiden name (mmn) Sullivan Sept 1/4 1857 St Giles and St George vol 1b page 363

    Then this one
    Ellen Sullivan Sept 1/4 1853 reg dist St George (in the East) vol 1c page 384 mmn Sullivan
    and this
    William Sullivan Sept 1/4 St George in the east vol 2 page 112 mmn Sullivan a couple of years younger than in the 1861 census though.

    I still can't find a birth reg for Matthius but this could be his death reg as I can't find him on any census other than 1861
    Matthias Sullivan age 5
    Registration Quarter 1/4 Dec 1862
    Registration district: Holborn London
    Vol 1b Page 367

    Gwyneth I see your tree on ancestry with Daniel Sullivan birth reg St James 1864 but the mmn is Murphy. If this is correct then my admittedly out in left field supposition of Mary (mother) being a Sullivan is shot down in flames. Also I can't find a birth reg for Daniel with mmn Sullivan but there is one in Sept 1/4 1863 Westminster and another June 1/4 1865 Poplar Union.

    I had to go out earlier, so just to complete things - although I'm sure you have this by now:

    Parish of Christ Church, Middlesex (on Anc as Tower Hamlets Christ Church with St Mary and St Stephen, Spitalfields)
    6 Dec 1852
    Daniel Sullivan 23 Bachelor Tailor 50 Gun Street. Father: Timothy Sullivan, Tailor
    Mary Murphy 21 Spinster same address. Father: Matthias Murphy, Shoemaker
    Daniel made his mark, Mary signed

    Default Unconfirmed records on my tree

    Info on my *A family tree is sometimes speculative, based on filtering lots of possibles and choosing the most likely! For example, if the namesake was a labourer, it seems unlikely (though not impossible) he would suddenly become a tailor. Looking at census records I imagine the family would not have moved very far in London, to where Ellen eventually met and married Otto.
