Bridgeman/Bridgman & Ambrose
I have struggled for many years now to find further information on my grandfather’s family in Ireland. Unfortunately he did not talk about his family so not a lot of details are known. What I do have is the following;
Patrick BRIDGMAN had a son Michael BRIDGMAN. Michael married Anastasia AMBROSE in 1889, Newcastle, Co. Limerick, in the Roman Catholic Chapel of Newcastle. At the time of his marriage Michael was living in Timroo and Anastasia was living in Dunganville.

In the Griffiths Valuation of Ireland - Shanagolden, County Limerick 1848 - 1864, there is a Patrick BRIDGEMAN Finnoo, Kilmoylan, Limerick.
James BRIDGEMAN, Shanagolden and a few other BRIDGEMAN in those areas
Thomas AMBROSE in the parish of Lower Newcastle

Michael & Anastasia had 6 children; Thomas J b c 1890, Robert J b c 1892, Mary Ann b c 1893, Bridget (Bridy)b c 1894, (her married name may have been Passotti), James Philip BRIDGEMAN(this is my grandfather) b 24 May 1895, Edward b c 1897.
James Philip birth entry in the register says his father was a farmer in Finoe. The register is in the District of Shanagolden, Rathkeale.
On James Birth & Baptismal certificate the areas mentioned are Parish of Ballhahill & Loughill.

Thomas AMBROSE had a daughter Anastasia. She married Michael BRIDGMAN. Interestingly enough they were married by R J AMBROSE C.C. Witness's were Thomas and Elizabeth AMBROSE. There is nothing to say if this was her parents or siblings. Anastasia's age was stated as full age. At the time of his marriage Michael was living in Timroo and Anastasia was living in Dunganville.

I will be most grateful if anyone can help me to find further information on this family or steer me in the right direction
