    Looking for bap of Gt gt grandfather Denis HIGGINS. Married at RC church Carrick on Suir to Margaret LONERGAN in 1832.  his birth/bap c 1812?.. according to his death entry in 1866 as aged 54 years. Can’t find it in C.O.S I think his wife came from there. I don’t have any idea which parish to search next. They continued to live in C.O S until Denis’ death and his children were all bap there. Any help much appreciated. thank you

    Hi Meg.
    Have you considered this Denis, born 1810? https://registers.nli.ie//registers/vtls000632114#page/47/mode/1up
    He was born in the nearby parish Stradball/Ballineen, about 17 miles from Carrick-o-S. You’d need to look at sibling names etc. to get more clues.
    Best of luck in the search


    Thank you for your advice Bob. As I have no clue as to the names of Denis’s parents I am open to all at the moment. Just one thing I was half expecting was perhaps John and Elizabeth as Denis and Margaret had 3 daughters; Mary, Elizabeth and Eliza and 2 sons John and Michael. As Michael  and Mary appear to be accounted for as his in laws I was rather expecting to find John and Elizabeth as his own parents but I know that a naming pattern was not always followed. So I am now concentrating on the Stradball  parish up to 1814 at the moment looking for any possible later siblings for Denis. If no luck I will try my luck with surrounding parishes. Thanks again
