Jim I note your Hanratty branch came from Newry, county Down. I am searching for my Hanratty branch also understood to be from Newry.
The family I am looking for is Michael Hanratty and his wife Nancy (maiden name Flannagan or Hannagan, difficult to read writing on her son's birth certificate.)
Micael is born about 1807-11 in Ireland and died in 1878 in Liverpool UK. His wife Nancy (also called Ann) was born about 1807-1812 in Ireland and died in 1871 in Liverpool.
In 1836 they had a son John born in Liverpool UK, then in 1938 a son James born in county Down, and in 1841 a son Michael born in county Down and in 1852 a son Peter born in Liverpool, My family descendents from this Peter.
From UK census records the family stayed in Liverpool from 1851.
Any connections with Hanrattys in Newry or other places in county Down welcomed Frank
