Thanks for your advice. I have chatted to a genealogist who specialises in Cork and she said both names are so common it will be difficult, especially as I a not sure which part of Cork they came from. But I will do as you say and hope!!

Yes they do and I live in Cork . I can go back as far as 1750 when a Thomas Ryan was born . However I have quite a few ancestors born in the 1820's that are unaccounted for .

How very interesting - we could be very distantly related! My Gt Gt Grandfather was William Ryan, believed to have been born end 1829 or 1830 in Cork. He came to England and was married on 25 August 1850 to Catherine Callaghan They were both working in London and they give their father's names as David Ryan - Labourer, and William Callaghan - Labourer, respectively. Their marriage in church in Londonwas witnessed by Michael Donovan and Catherine Reardon and I did find a baptismal record for a Catherine Callaghan in Jan 1829,with Tim or Liam Callaghan listed as Father and a Cate Donovan as the Mother. The address given was Glaunback, Kilbrin (I think!). They had six children, John, Wiliam, Dennis, Ellen Mary and Catherine (William being my Gt Grandfather. William senior died in 1878 aged 49 years. They lived in Kensington, London (Notting Hill part after marriage which was very poor (now quite expensive and wealthy!). There were potteries and piggeries there and it had a large Irish population. In fact my mother was born and brought up in the area.
I often wondered why they came to England - for work presumably.
I don't know if this helps at all with your missing ancesters. I am told that many of the Irish records were destroyed and that they didn't start records as early as the UK. If it helps I can scan in what I have and send it to your e-mail address.

Thank you for your message . Unfortunately we are not related as the parents of my ancestors born in the 1820's were Thomas Ryan and Ellen Coughlan . William and Catherine probably emigrated to England during the Great Famine that started in 1845 . Most of the emigrants at that time went to the U.S. , Canada , Australia and to the U.K. . Yes many of the Irish civil records were destroyed during the civil war in 1922 . However church records were kept in the parishes and they have survived . You have a lot of info so if you scan it and send it to denisryan@mysmart.ie I will see if I can be of any help .
