    Have you found the family on the 1911 Irish census?
    There this a family in Ballyliamgow, Inch, Wexford:-
    Patrick Chapman age 48 - head - shoemaker
    Mary age 48 - wife
    Peter age 11 - son
    Catherine age 8 -daughter
    Bridget age 6 - daughter
    All Roman Catholic, all born Co. Wexford

    Mary and Patrick have been married for three years, with no children born.

    Good morning David and welcome to Top Dog. You are up early.

    Can you tell us what information you are looking for in particular. Also, it may help if you tell us what you already have.

    Strange that they should say they have been married 3 years and have no children.
    Looking at the 1901 census they are at Clongeen,Co Wexford with 8 children.I've checked a baptism record for Edward Chapman b.1891 who appears on the 1901 census and the mother is given as Mary Furlong and residence is Clongeen so is the right family.Peter Chapman who appears on both the 1901 and 1911 census also has a baptism with mothers name of Mary Furlong.

    These Irish can be difficult to fathom sometimes.
    On the birth cert for your dad is the mother given as Bridget Chapman formerly Chapman?

    I have discovered doing my own research, that most if my catholic ancestors were born out of wedlock. Father is mentioned if they remain a couple n later marry. Father isn't mentioned if they don't. But he could be mentioned in another register known as ??. (I forget the name now, will look up ). Each catholic church keeps a record of ones who have children out of wedlock n name the father n mother during a service. The couple basically admit their sin in front of the congregation and ask to be forgiven.

    Hi Maryj,
    I have been researching this Chapman family for almost three decades. Would love to chat - do you have an email address?
