Hello Peter,

I found the baptism transcription as well as a copy of the original baptism record for what may be Evan Evans and Elizabeth Evans’ daughter, Margaret Elizabeth Evans. This information comes from the Irish Genealogy website at:
http://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/

The transcription shows that Margaret Elizabeth Evans was baptized in St. Peter’s Church of Ireland, Dublin, on 17 March 1870, (St. Patrick’s Day). The record also shows she was born on 4 March 1870. Her parents “Evans” Evans and Elizabeth Evans were living in 4 Lower Mercer Street, Dublin. Evans’s occupation is listed as “Coast Guard.”


The transcription follows:


Area - DUBLIN (COI) , Parish/Church/Congregation - ST. PETER

Baptism of MARGARET ELIZABETH EVANS of 4 LOWER MERCER STREET on 17 March 1870

Name MARGARET ELIZABETH EVANS
Date of Birth 4 March 1870
Address 4 LOWER MERCER STREET
Father EVANS EVANS
Mother ELIZABETH EVANS

Further details in the record

Father Occupation COAST GUARD

A copy of the original baptism record for Margaret can be found at the Irish Genealogy website link at: http://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/reels/d-45-2-16-042.p...

Margaret’s baptism is the third entry down from the top on Page 42.

You’ll notice the page on which Margaret’s baptism is found contains ink transfer from the previous page, which makes it a little difficult to read. But with the transcription as a guide you can manage to decipher the writing, though the transcription does not include the name of the Church of Ireland priest who baptized Margaret. When enlarging the page it appears the surname of the priest may be Gallagher.

St. Peter’s Church of Ireland was located on Aungier Street, just west of St. Stephen’s Green, in Dublin City. The church no longer stands. In place of the church is a YMCA. Mercer Street Lower, where Evan and Elizabeth were living when Margaret was baptized, is only a short distance from Aungier Street.

To read about St. Peter’s Church and view a photo of it, go to the Wikipedia link at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Peter's_Church,_Aungier...

To see a Google Map of Mercer Street Lower, Dublin, go to: http://tinyurl.com/ats2aso

Once at the map you’ll see the letter A pointing to Mercer Street Lower. Increase the size of the map slightly so that the names of the streets and landmarks in this portion of Dublin are more clearly delineated. Next, left-click on the letter A to generate a “Street view” thumbnail photo of Mercer Street Lower. Then click on the photo and you’ll be able to navigate your way along Mercer Street Lower.

Next go back to the map. In the left margin of the map highlighted in blue, you’ll see the prompt for “Directions.” Click on Directions, and in the A box, type in Aungier Street, Dublin, and then click on “Get directions.” Once at the new map you’ll see the route you can take from Mercer Street Upper, now at location B, to Aungier Street at letter A. Just below the letter A, and to the left of the street, you’ll see “YMCA gym.” This is where St. Peter’s Church of Ireland was located.

The present-day YMCA is located to the left of the Flanagans Funeral Directors’ building.

Best Wishes for the New Year Peter,

Dave Boylan
