You are looking for parish records. You can search an
Irish Heritage Foundation for birth and marriage records
depending on what records have survived. You have both names which is a real help in your search.

Griffith Valuation 1857:
There are 432 Murray's of which 14 named Peter
and 44 Burns

The parish's in common are Drum, Killukin, Kiltullagh, Roscommon.

Latin spellings

In 1822 there is a birth for an Eliza Burnes 26 Aug. 1822 fa: johanes (John) Burnes and mother Elizabetha Loughna, Boyle, Roscommon

Elizabeth 7 April 1830, Boyle
Patritii Burns and Bab Noon

These are from a CD from the Latter Day Saints - no longer
available - see

They are records from parish's whose records were not destroyed in the 1922 Four Courts Fire in Dublin

There is no marriage for this couple in the CD records I have but there are many more parish's.

Tithe Applotments 1823-1837:

212 Murray's 18 named Peter if Peter is named after father'
18 Burns, you could try comparing Parish's again to match up with the Griffith Murray & Burns.

The current on line telephone books shows 39 Murray's
and 4 Burns. Its hard to believe but you may find some families still in situ. You could try writing the 4 Burn's and see if you get any answers and you never know!

Would they still have been in Ireland for the 1901 or 1911
census? + Roscommon United Kingdom+Ireland+County
