Looking for a birth for Elizabeth Cassell/castle

Thu Jun 14, 2018 11:48 am

I am looking for a birth for an Elizabeth Cassell/ Castles. It would be in Dublin abt the years 1860's or 1870's. Her parents would gave been William Cassell and Elizabeth Cassell nee Lambert or Mcguirk. She had two sisters I think called Catherine 1875 and Margaret 1873-1953.

I can't see an Elizabeth Cassell, but there's a Rachel Cassells baptised 13/11/1873 in Wicklow, father William Cassells and mother Elizabeth Lambert Cassells. Rachel was baptised on the same day as Margaret Cassell, whose parents were also William Cassells and Elizabeth Lambert Cassells. (http://www.familysearch.org)

There is also a son Joseph 4 July? 1868 at baptised at Wicklow s of William Cassall and Elizabeth Mcguirk.

The problem is that Cassall is sometimes transcribed as Carroll and FMP doesn't match William with the Latin often found in catholic parish records.
There are birth certificates for Rachel and Margaret at Rathdrum 13.11.1873 parents from Wicklow and William is a tailor.
Catherine born Nov 25th 1875 on certificate but 1876 on index.

William Cassells married 18.4.1865 Elizabeth M'Guirk at Wicklow.
Father's Morgan Cassells and Joseph Lambert ,so it looks like she was a a widow.
