    James McILVENNY and his wife Martha can first be found in the 1871 census (RG10, piece 5113, folio 91, page 7) with their son, 4-month-old Michael.

    By 1881, son James had arrived.

    James (Snr) hails from Ireland, whilst Martha is from Longbenton, in the North Shields area of Northumberland.

    I have searched high and low for a marriage for these two, but to no avail.

    Using the GRO, I thought to check out the births of the boys to discover Martha's maiden name. No luck. :( The transcriptions for the maiden name for Martha are:
    Michael (McVaney) December Q, 1870, Tynemouth, 10b, 161 - WOOLD
    James (McIlvaney) June Q, 1872, Tynemouth, 10b, 165 - WALL

    Whilst I realise that ordering the two birth certificates may help, I was also wondering if the Top Dog super sleuths could also lend a hand.

    It does not help that the name McILVENNY can appear in many and varied ways... o_O

    Thanks,

    You little cracker! Thank you! :D

    Hall, Woold, Wall - yep, the writing is probably appalling on the certificates. :oops:
