Can anyone help with handwriting on this?

Postby katinthehat » Sat Mar 17, 2018 4:47 pm

Doing some research and at a key point - being trying to figure out the Parents on this marriage certificate.

I can see it says John Rooney as Dad but can't make out his occupation?

The Mum I'm struggling to read any of it.

Can anyone help please?

Possibly Sheridan for Mrs Rooney’s maiden name?

Possibly Sheridan but I would try and get another record to check. Either John or Jane’s death, or Thomas’s death or maybe the marriage or death of a sibling for Thomas.

I'm struggling to find anything on John - he was born in Ireland around 1821 ish and moved to Scotland - he's on a 1861 census.

Jane is nowhere to be found. I can find anything for her, hence the question on the name.

I've attached Thomas death certificate which is also hard to read.

That looks even more like Sheridan.

Jane Clark, previously Rooney, maiden surname Sheridan.

Looks like Jane married again - to a Mr Clark.
Maiden surname seems to be Sheridan.
