Barnes Family in UK

Journal by MichaelNolan

I am trying to locate any information on a Mary Emily Barnes born 1851 somewhere in UK. Her father was a (George or John) Barnes and her mother was Ely (Elizabeth ??)Barnes of England, she married my Great grandfather Michael Nolan in Carlow, Ireland on 3rd May 1878, her wedding Certificate states she was of full age (not sure what age this is meant to be). I estemate she came to Carlow in about 1875 and worked as a servant (maybe a personal maid to a lady of gentry, possibly with some connection to the McMurragh Kavanagh family of Borris House Carlow.

I have tried English & Welsh records but cannot find anyone who matches your information. How sure are you re year of birth? Is there any other info that you have that may help?

Hi Avl,
As regards her birth Year all the information I have is from her Death Certificate which states she was 44 when she died on 25th September 1895

Hi Michael
Does her death certificate not have her DOB, place of birth and parents listed on it? Is it the full certificate?

It is an Irish Death Certificate dated 25th September 1895, it only gives:
Date of Death,
Marital Status,
AGE at Death
Position in Life, Profession or Trade
Cause of Death,
Certificate Date,

None of the information you state is given on this type of Irish Death Certificates. which was the information required under UK law prior to the establishment of the Irish State.

I found the only Mary Emily Barnes born in England within 5 years of the date given. This is all I could find. I hope it is useful.

Barnes, Mary Emily Registered Birth Dec 1847 in the district of Sculcoates, Yorkshie East Riding.
