I was interested in reading the various messages that have been posted to this Forum.I am currently researching the Tunsteads and Shirleys in this area.So far I have looked at more recent years, and have only had a short time with the Parish Register for early 1800s.Firstly the Church is known as St. Lazerians Cathedral, Old Leighlin.
I can confirm the following Tunstead entries: Baptisms: 18 Sept 1808 Thomas s. of Thos. and Dora Tonsted. 2 Dec. 1810 Richard s. of Thos. and Dora Tonsted.
Marriage 8 June 1807 Richard Tonsted to Eleanor Shirley, both of the parish.
On my next visit to the Library I shall be continuing to look at this Register and will post anything else I find.I will also look through other Tunstead notes I have and if anything fits I shall again post it to the List.
