MURRIN?? from Pouch Cove???, Newfoundland

Hello..I'm still searching!!...since posting my query I have a some possibly new info & I'm updating the are the changes ...previous post stated my maternal GrGrandfather, Lawrence FITZGERALD had a sister who married a SHEA..this should be his Aunt Elizabeth (King) married a Joseph? SHEA from Pouch Cove area of Newfoundland....I did find a marriage record at the archives at The Rooms in St. John's and online that details a marriage that could be them - Location: Pouch Cove, Nfld; Date: 1903; Groom: LAWRENCE FITZGERALD > Age: 25; Birthplace: Small Point, Nfld; Bride: ANN MURRANT; > Age: 23; Birthplace: Pouch Cove; Witnesses: Joseph Shea and Catherine Murrant...however I'm still not sure if this is actually my GrGrandparents - the age given for the Groom is 25 but this would mean the Groom was born in 1878 but I know my GrGrandfather was born 1882 {I know there's always the possibility of typos &/or incorrect data} - 2) the family name of the Bride, Ann MURRANT this is the other different spelling {her name was spelled as MORAN on her daughter/my Grandmother's bapt. record 1904 and then spelled as MURRIN on her daughter/my Grandmother's marriage record in 1924}...I still haven't been able to make connections with my GrGrandparents FITZGERALD/MORAN/MURRANT/MURRIN family either in Newfoundland & Labrador or in Nova Scotia where my GrGrandparents lived during the early 1900's...any help would be welcomed, thank you! Regards, Nora :)



My query is re: MURRIN, Ann(e)...this is the name listed as my GrGrandmother on the m. cert. for her daughter/my grandmother, Helen "Nellie" Fitzgerald m. 1924 in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to my Grandfather, John Whelan of Colliers, NL.

From the info I've been able to obtain, my GrGrandparents - Ann(e) Murrin m. Lawrence Fitzgerald (he was b. abt. 1882 from Small Point/Kingston, Bay de Verde, Newfoundland). GrGrandfather Lawrence had a sister that married a "Shea" from Pouch Cove (or area) and this would be how my GrGrandparents met. Since my Grandmother was born in 1904, I'm thinking that their time of marriage would be abt 1900 - 1904.

I have no other info on my GrGrandmother, Anne(e) MURRIN - perhaps b. abt. 1880; m. abt. 1900 - 1904. Her daughter/my grandmother's m. cert. lists her place of birth as New Aberdeen, Nova Scotia; there's a son, Lawrence, b. 1907 listed on his m. cert. as St. John's, Newfoundland.

If any of my info is possibly familiar or if you could forward info to me, that would be great, I'm truly "stumped" with my GrGrandmother!!

Regards, :)
