    My great great grandfather Edward Brookes and his wife Mary (still looking for a maiden name) were in Schull in 1836 for the birth of their first daughter Catherine.
    Edward came from Donegal, possibly Ryelands, Raymoghy.

    Looking for the marriage of Edward and Mary. (possibly Presbyterian)

    Thank you

    Was Edward possibly a member of the Coast Guard?

    Have you located a baptismal record for Catherine in 1836 or is this what you seek? What evidence do you have that the birth took place in Schull?



    Thanks for your reply Steven.

    I don’t think Edward was in the coast guard. He was born around 1802 in Donegal and at some point moved to West Cork. I have seen the microfilm of Catherine’s baptism (from the Durruswest website) in 1836. There were 2 more children born in Schull – James in 1838 who I think died young, and John in 1840.
    There were another 5 children born in Dromreagh, Durrus. Edward was a farmer while at Dromreagh, though when he died his occupation was weaver.
    I have a lot of information on his children and descendants, but a brick wall on where he was born in Donegal, when he came to Cork and his wife’s maiden name!

    Thank you
