Hi All,

I'm searching for my ancestors Patrick James Owens b. Jan 1843 and Mary Murphy b. c1856. Patrick James was apparently born on the Isle of Wight (I do not have birth certificate confirmation of this) and then educated from the ages of 8 to 14 at the Royal Hibernian Military School in Dublin, at which stage he commenced a ten year military career before returning and marrying Mary Murphy in Tralee on August 6 1874. On their marriage entry his father is listed as James Owens and hers as William Murphy. They emigrated to New Zealand the following year.

I'm researching on behalf of my grandfather (Patrick and Mary's grandson) but have hit quite the brick wall and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Jess Owens
