I am looking for descendants of Richard Brien and Mary Brown believed to have been married in Mullingar about 1860. They had eleven children between 1862 and 1880.The oldest, Andrew was baptised in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Parish of Mullingar 19 December 1862. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1888.

Although I don't have a Bridget, by going back one generation I have Andrew Brien and Jane Carroll married in Taughmon Church near Mullingar on 30/4/1829. They had six children, William 1830, Mary 1832, Edward 1834, Richard 1838, Patrick 1842, and Andrew 1846. Since Bridget was born in 1840, perhaps they were cousins!

I have a Bridget Brien from Mullingar who married Thomas Francis Cooney in Mullingar Jan 1858. The Brien family lived just east of Mullingar I think. Bridget was born about 1840. Thomas and Bridget had 2 sons in Ireland before the came to IL and then to NE.

Hi Nancy,

It's exciing to hear from someone with a connection to Taughmon Parish. However,since my ancestor Richard Brien was born in 1838 and his brother William born in 1830, we don't have a match.

In nearby Mullingar Parish, I also have a Richard, born in 1870, a Catherine born in 1880 and an Andrew (my grandfather) born in 1862.

You might be interested in Westmeath Names posted by Eileen Courtney (ECourt9020@aol.com) on Friday 7 April 2000. She is searching for families in Taughmon Parish also.
Best Regards,
Bill O'Brien

my gggrandfather and mother Richard and Elizabeth (Toole) were married in the parish of taughmon on jan 7 1840. Richard had a brother William and sister Cathrine, William born in 1819-20 and Cathrine 1816-17. I have no information on William or Cathrine but I do know that Richard and Elizabeth had 3 children born in Ireland James(my ggrandfather) 1840-41 and Andrew 1844 and Catherine 1845-46. Richards parents were Edward Bryan and Catherine Sheil. Could we some how be related, the same names keep showing up Richard, Edward, Andrew, do you have anyother information?

I am trying to trace my Ancestor Patrick Carroll who married an Ann Leavy in or around 1780/81 in Taughman. They had five children Michael b. 1782 Thomas b 1783 John b. 1789, James b 1789 and William 1791. Would any of these children be an ancestor of yours.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Nancy,

Did you ever go to Mullingar as you mentioned years ago? I am about to do the trip and if you have any info already, please let me know. Your great grandfather James O'Brien and my great grandfather, Richard, were brothers. I have the Taugmon RC parish records, but do not know the location of their home(s).
Hoping to hear from you,
Paige Abry Morrison

My grandmother Jane Brien(Bryan) married Alexander Clarke in Australia in 1891. She is listed as being born in 1865 in Rathconnell near Mullingar, Westmeath, Ireland.
Her birth certificate has her parents as Richard Brien & Mary Brown. Any further information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Brian Clarke
