Re: William GARRETT 1800-1880
In Response To: Re: William GARRETT 1800-1880 ()

The above posts seem to be somewhat tangled. The 1861 Census data relates to William Garrett, shoemaker of Ballakaighin and his wife Jane LACE (mar 6 Jan 1852 German). The marriage entry confirms that Wm is the son of Edmund Garrett viz


William Garrett full age widower shoemaker Ballakaighin f, Edmund Garrett shoemaker
Jane Lace full age spinster Ballakaighin f. John Lace labourer
Thomas Quayle
Philip Clucas PC

This is almost certainly the same Wm Garret that was previously married to Jane Corlett viz:-


William Garrett bachelor of the parish of German
Jane Corlett of this parish spinster
Edmon Garrett
John Quirk

Since the father is not named at that time the evidence is circumstantial but the witness is probably his brother Edmund (b 1804)

Wm is the son of Edmund Garrett and Mary Kelly b 1794

The William Garrett & Jane Christian which you quote is in fact Wm Garrett and Jane Garrett viz:-

William Garrett full age bachelor shoemaker Peel f. Philip Garrett Farmer
Jane Garrett full age spinster Peel f. Thos Garrett Dyer
James Oates
Philip Clucas PC
