So can we assume they were protestant then?

I don't know that this is the marriage, Maggie. It might be. I don't know when Callaghan or his wife came to England.

I will get a birth cert for one of their children to get Mary's maiden name when I am in funds.

As for their being Protestant, all I can say is that all their children married in C of E churches. But I haven't found any baptisms. So it might be that the baptisms were in churches not on Ancestry, or that they were Catholics but married in C of E churches because it was more socially acceptable or because their spouses were C of E.

Nell when I was in Ireland in 2009 I visited the Immigration Museum and Heritage Centre at Cobh (pronounced Cove) outside Cork. Cobh used to be called Queenstown. Cobh was the largest immigration port from Ireland. It is where the mass migration of people left from after the potato famine to the USA and the world. It was the last port of call of the Titanic. When I find the literature about it I will let you know, as enquiries could be made about all the people who left from there and it is where most people left from. I'm not sure if it was a paid site or not.

I once read an article - which I can't find - written in the first half of the C19th which claimed that although the majority of the Irish immigrants in the Saffron Hill area were RC, they tended to bend to the will of whichever priest braved the slum. I have Cork and Kerry ancestors there in the 1840s-60s and although I have some evidence that they were RC (even up to the end of the century), they did often marry (when they do) in C of E churches. I suppose like many immigrants they lived within their own rules to some extent and I've never come across a baptism with my lot so I assume that if they were baptised they were baptised RC.

Birth registration is no better - my great grandfather was born 1875/6, the sixth of eight that I know of and I've never found a birth cert for any of them.

Merry I believe Queenstown (Cobh) in Ireland was the major immigration port to everywhere. I read somewhere that it has passenger lists of all who sailed from Cobh and that included UK. The famine migration to the States (Ellis Island), Convicts (Australia) and the last port of call of the Titanic, are just major exhibits in the museum. Hopefully when I find the literature it may be of help to Nell Sorry my post was confused.
