Trying to trace a James Hayes who married Catherine Curren approx 1862 in Bagnelstown, Co Carlow. James and wife together with children left Ireland 1874 and travelled to New Zealand. James and Catherine had Mary b.1865, Joseph b.1866 and John b.1867 all from Bagnelstown.
Does anyone know of either the Hayes or Curren family.
Kind regards Kaye (Aust)
My greatgrandfather Hugh hayes abt 1857 is in the 1901 and 1911 Ireland cencus with his wife Mary and children John and William. Living with them is mother inlaw Sarah Curren. Could their be a connection with James Hayes and Catherine Curren.
