Judy,
Can't promise any miracles, but have you tried

Southern New England Irish

If the family was in Tiverton that early, you might want to check into Fall River MA records. The boundary between Tiverton and Fall River was always a little blurry, and changed many times. I have tried at the Tiverton Library and they tell me there are no directories or anything similar for Tiverton before 1900. Since Fall River was closest, most of Catholic Tiverton residents belonged to St. Patrick's Church in the south end of Fall River, which was established in 1873. There are no published records that I know of, so you would probably have to write to them directly. The RI state archives is also very helpful. Towns were required to report births, marriages and deaths to the state from 1853, so if Patrick Lynch was born in Tiverton, and IF his birth was registered in the town or any other in RI, it would have to be at the state archives.

Good luck! Sue
