I am trying to find out information about my ancestor, Margaret Ellen Theresa Darmody born 02.12.1875, County Tipperary, Ireland.
I have found a birth certificate dob 23.08.1875 but the birth date differs so am not 100% sure it is the right one.
The birth certificate states father as John Darmody (tailor) and mother as Margaret nee Burker. Please of bith is "Commanage" - not sure if this right as can;t find any reference to such a town
I cannot find her on the 1901 (age 26) or 1911 (age 36) census – I think this may be due to the fact that she might have been living in Orange Grove , King Williams Towns South Africa at the time.
Were there any other census’ done before 1901? And are there any records for passengers travelling by ship from Ireland to South Africa?
She married George Stinton who came to South Africa in 1896 so I am assuming that they married here and that Margaret came over around that same time too.They went on to have 6 children and moved from South African to Bulawayo Zimbabwe.
I am very interested in finding out more about the Darmody name and any more information on my great great grandmother
Any suggestions?
