Probably not the first and surely not the last request for help deciphering the newly available Irish parish records! Am I reading this correctly? I think it says: 1st Michael of Wm Toner & Cath Brown S. Bridgt Byron.
Literally every other entry in this section of the register is in the format of "NAME of FATHER & MOTHER LASTNAME," with no mother's maiden name given. Could I have gotten lucky enough to have the only maiden name in all of 1833? But since I only see one sponsor, I'm worried I'm misreading what something that's actually part of the other sponsor's name. (Also not sure I have Bridget's name right, so correct me if I'm wrong.)
There were several entries, at different eras in this parish, with "(bastard)" included in the entry. Even though it's not included here, should I be considering that these parents aren't married given that maiden names of married women were not typically recorded? #genealogy #NLI #parishregisters
