Margaret Buckley, c1830 - 1877

1830. Born c1831/3 in Kilnakle??[ Kilmichael]?, Cork, Ireland. [Cork from 1861C, Kilnakle from 1871C]. Came over to England 1851/2 as she cannot be found in 1851 Census. There are 4 age references to her: m.c.suggests birth in 1830, 61C in 1834, 71C in 1831 & dc in 1833! . Possible baptisms: 1. Tracton Abbey in 1831, father John, mother Catherine Lynch,

1851C. Seemingly not in the British census. But there is a Margaret Buckley, 16, with father John 45, mother Margaret 42, siblings Joseph 2-, Mary Ann 18, Sarah 8 and Catherine 3 , all born Ireland, in St Georges Lanarkshire. I cannot find Joseph, Sarah or mother Margaret in 1861C still in Scotland or in London. But a Catherine, 13, still in Lanarkshire with a father John 47, seeming mother Susan, Margaret 22 cotton worker again, & a younger brother born Glasgow - despite the daft ages for John & Margaret, think this likely the same family: thus a red herring!!

1852. 4/10/1852. Aged 22, marries David Tobin, 25, in St. George’s Catholic Church, St. George the Martyr, Southwark. He is given as a carpenter, as is his deceased father, John Tobin. Margaret’s father, John Buckley, also deceased, is given as a farmer. Her address is given as 5, Clarendon Place, her husband's as 12, Baker St. Witnesses Catherine & Jeremiah Kellard. Marriage Certificate.MT1.

Her life from here mirrors that of her husband, David Tobin 1827
