    LAVIN in St Helens and Ince.

    By val,
    I am researching Mary LAVIN and her brothers John and Patrick. They were born in Taunagh, Sligo, Ireland. Mary ch 21 Oct 1841 John ch 3 Feb 1847 Patrick ch 18 May 1840 their parents were Matheie LAVIN and Catherinae BRENAN.   Mary is on the 1861 census as a lodger with a FILLINGHAM family. Mary is on the 1871 census with one illegitimate child (my gt grandmother Hannah) and two others. She is mistakenly called a widow on the census, her brother John is living with her. Mary is on the 1881 census as wife of one of the FILLINGHAM family she had lodged with on the 1861 census, her 3 oldest children are now known by the FILLINGHAM name. In the St. Thomas Westfield Street register she is known as Mary FILLINGHAM on a bapt, I have not found a marriage to William FILLINGHAM.   John is on the 1881 census as married and living in Ince. Patrick is on the 1881 census as married and living in Ince.   Does anyone have a connection?   Thanks, Val.
