Clisham Family : County Mayo - County Leitrim?
Good evening,

I'm trying to obtain further information on my Great, great grandfather John Clisham(1841 - 1894) and his parents. Any further information would be greatly appreciated!!!

Starting with John; my great, great grandfather, I have gathered the following information:

He was born 'in Ballinamore,parish of Outeragh near the town of Leitrim', in 1841 to John (A shoemaker) and Anne Clisham (nee Byrne). His family relocated to Liverpool at some point before the 1851 England Census, where they are shown to be residing in Liverpool, England.

At the time of the 1851 England Census, he was one of four children. the family was as follows:

John Clisham b. 1811
Anne b. 1816
John b. 1841
Timothy b. 1844
Charles b. 1846
Mary b. 1849

However, prior to John's birth, it seems the Clishams may have originated from County Mayo, as the only occurences of both of the surnames Clisham and Byrne together is in County the parishes of Bohola, Drum and Toomore to be precise.

Could anyone check for a potential marriage between John Clisham and Anne Byrne in these location around say 1831 to 1841 please??

John joined the British Army in 1859 and it he left the army in 1885. He is listed as a Shoemaker on the 1891 England census with Ellen and his young family residing at Blackstock Street, Liverpool.

And that's about all the information I have!!!! As I said, I would love to be able to progress this line of my tree further back, and am greatful for any help anyone might be able to offer!!!
