Surnames: Hussion, Doyle
Hi. I'm looking for any info on a Bridget Hussion, who I believe was from Galway...more specifically possibly Kilconnell. She married a Doyle, possibly Patrick. They had 5 children; Patrick, John, Anna, Catherine, Mary. Patrick was definitely born in Co. Galway in 1844, I'm not sure about the others.

I believe that Patrick Sr. passed away and then Bridget and her children immigrated to New Haven, CT where she and Patrick are buried.

The estimated dates I have for Bridget (per her headstone) are 1810-1890.

Any or all information would be GREATLY appreciated!!

The date 1844 for son Patrick is pretty early for Galway.
Galway is divided genealogically into east and west but both belong to an Irish History Foundation with birth and marriage records. Marriage records
have only both of the couple's father's name, place/parish
(usually bride's parish)and a date.

With both names of the couple you can search for the children as a group.

Women's disappear as they marry and take a husband's name.
So that leaves John Doyle. Doyle as a surname is difficult as there are usually just too many people with that surname.

Hussion is an unusual name so you should have no problem finding birth records if the records in the parish has
survived. Certainly you could find the marriage record.

There are 0 Hussion in the current on line Galway telephone book, but 105 Doyle's.

In 1856 the Griffith Valuation took place in Galway and
Patrick and Bridget may have been occupiers of land.

The name Hussion is listed 23 times in the Valuation in Galway and all 23 are in Galway. So definitely Bridget was from Galway. There are 4 Hussion's in the Parish of Kilconnell. Two first names of Patrick or William.

There is 1 Hussion in an 1846 Dublin Directory named Andrew
of Prospect Hill, owns a Public House.

There were 48 Doyle's in Galway in 1856 and only one in the Parish of Kilconnell, Townland Barnavihall, PLU Ballinsloe

Bridget Doyle, Parish of Kilconnell, Townland Barnavihall
tenant of Rt. Hon. R.W. Greene

#1 herd's house, outbuildings and land

For Bridget to have a land lease in her name she is probably a widow, this fits your information.

Although the above doesn't answer the question of Bridget's husband's first name, the fact she has a son Patrick. If he is the first child he would either be named after his father or grandfather. The 2nd. son would be named after her father.

Thanks so much for the great information, my family and I are incredibly excited to know that we're definitely on to something.

I just don't know where to start though? Any advice on that, or would you be able to provide any further information?
