Mary, born early 1800's was my Great grand mother. Mary married Sgt Thomas Litchfield, of the 51st Regiment at the parish church of Ballysax in Count Kildare on the 26th September 1856. The witnesses were Mary McDonnall and John Conway **** The church is located close to the Curragh Camp. Mary gave birth to a daughter, Henrietta, on the 24th November 1858 at South Barracks Walmer Kent England, Thomas Litchfield father. The birth certificate clearly states Mary's maiden name to be Pearce and her home was in Tipperary.
Sgt Litchfield died in India . My GGF , a comrade in arms met and married Mary in Lahore. GGF, Mary and Henrietta eventually returned to England and on the 10th May 1866, at the Armory Barracks, Cirencester, Gloucestershire England, Mary gave birth to a son Robert - my grand father - , the father was Staff Sergeant Robert Owen my Great Grand Father.
Mary is now firmly centered in England, therefore would you now look at the Village of Warwick in Warwickshire and the Heading is Robert / Mary Owen. This will provide more details of Mary's family and my interest for more information of my Irish decendant's.
