One further comment about border areas (where all the families I trace seem to have lived). I have seen the following situation:
1. Bride from parish A marries groom from parish B - in her parish A.
2. Couple lives in his parish B, as shown in valuation revision lists (canceled books) and other records.
3. Births (as shown in civil registration) of the first few children of the couple occur and are registered in *her* old parish A.
4. Baptisms of these children occur either in parish A or B (it varies).
5. Later children are all born, registered and baptized in the parish where the family lives (parish A, the father's parish).
When this happens in a border area, there is not just a different parish and registrar's district, but sometimes a different county and diocese also.
So, was son George perhaps actually born across the border in County Tipperary because his mother went back to her own family to give birth?
