Reply To: Pallas from Navan

 Web Editor

Pallas is a very uncommon surname. I had a look at John Grenham’s surname distribution list for it. Did the marriage take place pre or post civil registration? It’d be fairly normal to find parents’ names on a church marriage by then but a civil would at least give fathers if it was 1864 onwards.

His website links to 3 Meath baptisms in Navan/Summerhill – one in the 1850s, the others earlier (on Findmypast).

ETA: I see it’s 1866. Rootsireland has a transcript but not of the civil so no helpful names. They have a lot more baptisms for the name. If you haven’t got a sub, it’s worth spending €10 for a 24 hour one.
