2008-Bermuda Telephone book……… One listing only - .Patrick N. Paley, Mullet Bay, St. George’s – tele: 441-297-1029
Forty Years of convict labour in Bermuda – by Hallett: nothing found.
19th Century Church Registers of Bermuda – baptisms/marriages/burials. Compiled by Hallett.Note, there were no birth or death records kept until approx. 1860.
So sorry Nuala, the register book I have only goes up to about 1907 or so. I do not see the Paley surname at all. There are 125 entries under the surname WARD.However, nothing under Alice.
It is possible they were born in Bermuda, however, not baptized, therefore, there would be no record of them. Without birth & death records, if you were never baptized, never married, died at sea, you did not exist.
So sorry, I cannot help. You can call the name Patrick Paley if you wish, he may be able to assist you. Or contact the Registrar Generals Office and see if they will do a search for you.
Records have to be over 100 yrs. Old before they can be published.
