Murphy Relations

    Know this is really a wild goose chase but, at this stage, I will try anything. Have been trying to trace any relations of a Patrick Murphy who was principal in Cecilstown School from 1891 to about 1903. I have been to North Cork, tried the Heritage Centre in Mallow plus the Registry of Births, Marriage and Deaths but just cannot get a trace on him at all. He was married to a Margaret O'Mahony and I can trace their children but not his brothers and sisters. Any help or advice would be really appreciated. Many thanks.

    Thanks for suggestion. I know from the Census of 1901 that he lived in Cecilstown but there is no record of him in 1911. Unfortunately, I don't know where he was born - just that he was a teacher and his father was a Thomas Murphy, Steward so I presume his father worked on an estate presumably in the Cork area.
