Baptisms for Margaret and John:
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...46427853/facts

John's godmother was Esther Mclanagan. A sister or other relative of Catherine, his mother?

Margaret's godmother was Maria (Mary) Quigley. I wonder what relative she was?

That's great Elizabeth, thank you !
The Catherine certainly looks promising - though is it 1851 or 1857 ?
The Bridget one also - though I notice the MMN is given as McClannighan.....only slightly different (especially as the g is silent in Ireland when spoken). So maybe the family lived in Liverpool for quite a while before moving back to Birkenhead later before John died.

Wow, that's amazing Elizabeth - twins, I never thought of that !
The only thing I'm a bit doubtfull about is that John & Catherine already had a daughter called Margaret, born c.1848.....so, could she have died ?
