Could you tell me where to research the coastguard marriage records? Thanks, Dominic.

Hi Dominic,
I have a database of 4,000 Irish Baptismal records and a number of Marriage s and Deaths collected from the National Archives in Dublin, The Representative Church Body of Ireland at Rathgar , also in Dublin. Also a number came from the General Records Office in Belfast.

Thanks Tony. Any chance George Stewart/Stuart marriage is in there c. 1840-1855? Dominic.

There were a lot of coastguard stations around the coast, and Romney Marsh area was notorious for smuggling etc. Thank you derrylass for the birth info on Anne in Portland, Dorset . I changed my search from Ireland to England on the IGI Family search and I cannot believe I found the Marriage of Domenick Doherty to Charlotte Dryer.

Hi Tony

Have just joined the Forum and am seeking the marriage of my husband's great, great grandfather James Greer b 1801 in Glenarm, Antrim, Ireland.

He was stationed at Dunay, Dundalk in 1831 and was transferred to Robin Hood Bay, Whitby on 29 July 1840.
He received his seaman's ticket 250,062 whilst stationed at Whitby, North Yorkshire on 17 Jun 1845 and was a commissioned boatman. His wife and family were in Ireland at the time and he was allowed, for some reason, to return to Portrane to join them just after his ticket was issued.

One child was born in Ireland during his time at Whitby, my husband's great grandfather James b 1843

I have searched for a marriage to Mary without success, their first child Joseph was born 10 November 1834, place unknown. I have the DOB's of his children from family documents but locations unknown except for one child baptised in Hawth in 1853.

James was discharged from the service 31 Jan 1858 superannuated receiving Coastguard Civil pension of £41 per annum and living at the time at Dromiskin, Castle Bellingham, Louth.

He is listed on the Griffith's Valuation at Dromiskin in 1854

Any help would be gratefully received

A look-up please - Marriage for Joseph P Copplestone and Mary Louisa Williams (or Louisa Mary Williams)

I believe Joseph met his wife when he was posted to Beaumaris in Wales.

Maybe her father was also a Coastguard - I do not know.

Joseph either fell or was pushed from cliffs at Old Head, Westport in 1847.

Would there possibly be a report on this incident?

Any help most welcome - Thankyou .....

I am trying to get information on my great great grandfather, John Patrick Hill and my great grandfather John Francis Hill. Both were in the Irish Coast Guard.

John Patrick was born in Cork in 1807 & married Jane Sweeney on May 12, 1832 in Killybegs. We have a mariners ticket no 79139 issued in Baltimore for John Patrick.

John Franics Hill was born Oct. 26, 1838 in Castletownbere, he married Kate Carey on July 9, 1862 in Castletownbere. He died in Castletownbere Nov 28, 1923.

Any information would be appreciated!

I have just become a new member. My late husband Brendan Jones before he died 2 years ago, was trying to find any records of Samuel Jones & his son Samuel Edward as both were coastguard men. He did succeed in getting details of Samuel Edward's second marriage to Margaret Wallace in Portnoo, Co.Donegal 1880,he was 44 & she was22. Recently while searching the census I discovered he was born in Co.Cork. The family were Church of Ireland. Any thoughts on how to find out more about his birth. Would appreciate any help.
