Re: Banks Family Tree
I searched the Irish Family History Foundation's database for Co. Leitrim. All surviving rcds for this county are in this database. Registration was civil after 1864 and hence, fairly comprehensive.

The earliest birth rcd for the Banks surname is in 1838. The earliest marriage rcd is 1829. There is no M rcd for Maria Hopper. Therefore, there is no corresponding M rcd for your G-grandfather.
There are 12 B rcds for the name Patrick Banks; only 2 of these precede civil registration: 1 in 1852, the other in 1858.
