Hi Alex,

I am left with two possibilities, 1841 in Co. Antrim or 1842 Co. Down.

I think the 1841 is more probable checking census returns

will you be able to get the actual birth place?

Hello Alex,

We are not allowed buy BMD records on JA, I can give you the link to buy his baptism record.

You register for free, records cost 5 euro. When you have his mother's maiden name you can then search for siblings using the maiden name for the mother.
