1845 Westport, County Mayo Wedding

Query by margarms

Hi just wondering if you would mind if you can get any information on the above between
Samuel LUCAS B. 1821 Stoke Climsland, Cornwall and Mary Anne LUCAS (or similar spelling), B 1828 Cork, County Cork Ireland M 22 December 1845 at Westport, County Mayo.
It is believed that Samuel was in the Army but I have always wondered why she would go from Cork to Westport to wed. Further family beliefs state that she was from a Jewish family (spelling Lukis or similar) but I can find no evidence of this. Samuel and Mary Anne emigrated to New Zealand and after 5 years to Australia. Any assistance on this family would be most helpful and many thanks Marg

Do not believe that that particular certificate is in actual fact the correct marriage certificate. The names are not right. Mary-anne was very particular about re writing her name as Lukis when it was misspelled Lucas. Also they were staunch 'Protestants'. On their children's birth certs they put 1844 as year of marriage. More research needs to be done. It's a very common name also. Think we need a trip to Ireland.
