I am a great-granddaughter of Ellen HYLAND, from the parish of Ballywalter, Neale, County Mayo (near the border with County Galway),Ireland. Her occupation is given as a 'servant'.

Ellen married John FEERICK on 2 March 1878, in Neale RC Chapel,Co Mayo. Witnesses to the marriage: Pat Feerick and Anne Walsh.

Ellen's parents were John and Mary HYLAND(farmers).

Ellen and her husband had 4 children: Patrick(1879), Honor'Nora', Mary and David Feerick.

Ellen Hyland(later Feerick)was alive in Ireland in 1901, but unfortunately no age was stated on the census.

If anyone knows anything of Ellen or her parents John and Mary I would be grateful to hear from you.

Thanks, Maria
