Walsh, Richard & Margaret Furey m. Oct 1827

The Walsh Marriage Index at RootsWeb has a page of marriages and baptisms for WALSHs taken from the Harbour Grace RC records. There is a listing for a RICHARD WALSH and MARGARET FUREY, married on Oct 16 1827, item number 64.

Judy Barker also has a copy of the marriage record information on her website, as well as two baptisms for the couple.
Richard WALSH & Margaret FUREY married October 16, 1827
Witnesses: Michael ROURK and Anne LEWIS

1. July 17, 1829 – James WALSH – John BOWE and Mary RYAN
2. April 22, 1832 – Thomas WALSH – Joseph PENNY and Elinor MYERS
3. 1838-1841 – Richard (died Everett, Mass. Mar 14 1914 – as per Death Registration; married to Anne Devine)
4. – ?? John
[Note: I’ve added #’s 3 & 4.]



I’ve often wondered who the RICHARD WALSH was that married ANNE DEVINE. There is a long list of baptisms for this couple in the Harbour Main records at Sts Peter and Paul Parish and there are two records from Holy Cross Parish in Holyrood – these cover a period of 24 years for a total of 12 baptisms.

I found their marriage record on the Grand Banks site, they were married at the RC Basilica in St John’s.[[1]]

I’m pretty sure that Richard Walsh and Anne Devine are the couple who were living at #7 Milo Street in Everett, Massachusetts when the 1900 US census was taken. At that time their youngest son, 21 year old Michael J (Sep 1879), and an adopted son, 14 year old William Hughes, were living with them. (They had been living in Boston in 1891 when their two youngest children Maud [[4]] and Leo [[5]] died.)

Patrick Walsh’s Marriage Register information dated April 19 1900, to Ella Peddee [??Peddle] [[3]], has as his parents Richard Walsh and Annie Devine, his street address is shown as #5 Milo Street. [The census image has a James Evans and his family living at #5.] Ella’s name is shown as Peddel [[3a]] on the Birth Regristration for their son Edward Francis Walsh born Sep 2 1902.

Note: Richard and Annie had emigrated in 1889, and in 1900 had been
 married for 41 years (1859).

Also living at #7 Milo Street [158th house, 206th family] were JAMES KIRBY and his

Note: Both James Kirby and Cecilia emigrated in 1887, and in 1900 had been married
 12 years, and were listed as having married in 1888. I haven't been able to find 
 their marriage record online.

I suspect that Cecilia Kirby was a dau of Richard Walsh and Ann Devine [ie: Felicia Nov 11 1862 Source: Mike Power; or Julian Nov 7 1862 (mother Anne Dwyer) Source: GrandBanks] Her maiden name was listed as Walsh (from Newfoundland) in the Birth Registration of her son Lawrence William Kirby in 1904. [[7]] At that time they were living at 11 Courtland St, Everett, Massachusetts.

I haven’t been able to find RICHARD and ANNE DEVINE WALSH in the 1910 Massachusetts Census but JAMES & CECILIA KIRBY were listed. Unfortunately familysearch.org doesn’t have the census image, so I checked at the Internet Archive which has the entire 1910 US Census. It took a few days of browsing the census pages for Middlesex County, but I finally found sheet #19B for Everett City – Ward 1. James and Cecelia Kirby were living at 97 Broadway Street. Some other info that was on the Census [Internet Archive] but not on the record at familysearch.org is listed below in []’s.

The Death Registration [[9]] sheet for RICHARD WALSH is interesting in a number of ways. First of all – the informant was MRS. J KIRBY, 97 BROADWAY, EVERETT, MASSACHUSETTS, which was the same address of the deceased. His Occupation was listed as CARPENTER. He was listed as 73 yrs old – (b 1841). [Cause of Death: Sarcoma of tongue and neck; Contributory: Arterio-sclerosios] He died on Mar 14 1914 and was buried at Holycross Cemetery at Malden, on March 16th.
** Richard Walsh’s parents were listed as: RICHARD WALSH, Newfoundland and MARGARET FUREY, Newfoundland. **
He was listed as Married, but I haven’t been able to find anything on Annie [Devine].

Please note: Except for Richard (Ann Devine) these others are possibilities only.

1. JAMES WALSH July 17, 1829 son of RICHARD WALSH and MARGARET FUREY – Sponsors: John BOWE and Mary RYAN

The following JAMES WALSH is a good candidate for the son of Richard Walsh and Margaret Furey. His headstone is in the South Side Cemetery in Holyrood.

“In loving memory of James WALSH born 1828 – died 1881
his wife Bridget Kirby born 1831 – died 1881.”
On other side of the stone
“In loving memory of Albert J. Carroll died at Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. Oct. 27th 1946, buried at Holyrood, aged 48 years. Erected by his brother.”
#208 White marble headstone [….THynes]

This James Walsh’s daughter Mary Ann married James Carroll. They built a house on or very near the old Walsh Fishing Room or Plantation listed in the 1805 Plantation Book. Their headstone is also in the South Side Cemetery at Holyrood.

“In loving memory of our dear father James Carroll, died Aug. 30th, 1917, aged 58 years.
Also our dear mother Mary Ann Carroll died March 12, 1927 aged 63 years
#361 White marble headstone […THynes]

JAMES WALSH 1828 – died 1881, approx 53 years and BRIDGET KIRBY 1831 – died 1881, approx 50 years.
All baptisms were performed at Sts Peter and Paul RC Church, Harbour Main, and Holyrood was listed as residence for all.

  1. Michael – 1859 Nov 27 #122 (mother ANN Kerwick) – Kyran Walsh
    – John Walsh Elisa Wall
  2. Richard John – 1861 Jul 2 #47 (mother Bridget Kirby) – Wm Walsh
    – John Walsh Margaret Kirby
  3. Elisa – 1863 Aug 23 #73 (mother Bridget Keswick) – Kyran Walsh
    – Michael Walsh Mary Joy
  4. Mary Ann – 1865 Aug 28 #76 (mother Bridget Kerrivan) – Kyran Walsh
    – Daniel Keefe Margaret Flannigan
  5. Bridget Frances – 1867 Oct 27 #112 (mother Bridget Kerwan) – Kyran Walsh
    – Thomas McGrath Mary Walsh
  6. Margaret Joseph – 1870 Sep 3 #90 (mother Bridget Kerwick) – Patrick O’Donnell
    – John Brick Anne Walsh
  7. Elizabeth Theresa – 1873 Feb 16 #9 (mother Bridget Kirby) – Jeremiah O’Donnell
    – Michael Walsh Elizabeth Veitch

2. THOMAS WALSH April 22, 1832 – Sponsors: Joseph PENNY and Elinor MYERS

3. RICHARD WALSH Feb 1838 (as per 1900 Massachusetts census [[6]]) 1841 (as per death registration [[9]]) and Anne Devine

4. JOHN WALSH – A headstone at Kennedy’s Lane has the following info.

Erected by John WALSH in memory of his father Richard WALSH
who departed this life Dec 26 1869, 65 yrs. Also his wife
Margaret who departed this life Jan 31 1889, 80 yrs.
[Richard b: circa 1804 and Margaret b circa 1809]

The dates are about correct for this couple to be Richard Walsh and Margaret Furey. This could be the John Walsh (of Richard) who is listed on the North Side Road on the cadastral map (#0207) beside Cornelius Kennedy (whose western boundary is shared by the Walsh Estate).

See John? in my My Theoretical Walsh Tree If this John is actually the son of Richard Walsh and Margaret Furey then I don’t believe that he belongs in my Theoretical Tree. Please use the Back button to return to this page.
