TERENCE/ MARY: Firm documentary evidence (their children’s baptism certificates with parent details) gives us an ancestor, Terence – married to Mary, having children in Kullenummery around 1853. Having obtained baptism certificates for two children of Terence Kelly - son Patrick and Dau. Elizabeth - both certs list father as Terence Kelly and mother as MARY WALSH. So this confirms Terence and Mary Walsh as the lineal ancestor of Patrick Kelly.

TERENCE BAPTISM: I’m assuming here that having married and lived in Killenummery, Terence was also born there. So. Assuming the 1852 wedding, and that the minimum likely age Terence would have married was 16, I searched for a birth date for Terence of around 1836. The search revealed just two Terence Kelly baptisms during this time period for the whole of Co. Leitrim:

1) 26th May 1824, at Bornacoola. Terence Kelly, son to Terence Kelly and Sarah Fox.
This one would make Terence 28 at marriage - not unreasonable - but I’d rule out because a) Bornacoola is in another part of Leitrim altogether, and b) generations tend to repeat names and we have no Sarah’s in the Kelly line.

2) 7th February 1837, at Killenummery. Terence, a son to Patrick Kelly and Mary Cullen. 1837 puts Terence a just 15 when he married. Birth dates can be mistaken, but the date of a formal church ceremony like a baptism or a marriage are rarely wrong, so we’re left with a 15 year old getting married in a Catholic ceremony - unlikely but I suppose not impossible in 1852, as the legal age for marriage in Ireland at this time was 14.

PATRICK MARRIAGE: On the basis of Terence below, born Feb 1837 to Patrick Kelly and Mary Cullen, I went in search of a marriage cert. for Patrick, marrying a Mary, min of 9 months before, ie. before May 1836. There were 5 Patrick Kelly marriages listed prior to 1837. Only two are killanummery, and one is 26th July 1836, which would mean that Terence’s mother would have been several months pregnant with Terence (born Feb 1837) at time of marriage.

A far better candidate is a Patrick Kelly, marrying at Killanummery, one Mary Cunnague (must be transcription error of Cullen?) on 31st December 1834. There are only five instances of the surname Cunnague in the entire Irish ancestry database so this is almost certainly a transcription error.
