This look like another daughter born to the same couple but while the mother is Abina on the baptismal record she is Abigail on the civil record.

EDIT: Baptism is Oct 14th - about half way down the right hand page.

Excellent work, same address, parents, etc. It must be Abigail, with "Abina" a colloquial version of the name.

Thanks for looking in to this guys.

I hadn't come across Abina myself before but there are over 700 examples of the name in the 1911 census.

I've never neard this name before so did some poking around on the internet. There is a Rootschat thread that says it is an Anglicized version of Gobnait, a medieval Irish saint, and that the name is mostly found in Co Cork where the record under discussion here is from. For what it's worth.

Just searched the 1911 census myself--774 named Abina. Rough estimate--700 in Co Cork. Interesting.

I was at college with an Abina from Cork. She told me the Irish for it was Gobnait. I always thought Gobnait was a made up 'comedy' name. Likewise Ballydehob. College taught me a few things.

Very interesting guys, thanks again. I've heard of the name Gobnait alright, although its pretty uncommon these days. I must say the Genealogy Message Board is amazing for these kinds of queries.

Hello,

Looking to decipher the occupation of this death record for Catherine Fogarty 4th July 1893 (2nd from bottom).

https:/civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1893/05999/4707075.pdf

I think it might say either;

‘Wife of deliverer’ OR ‘wife of delicatesser’ (or something of that ilk)

But am really not sure!

Any help would be most appreciated

Wow, thank you both for your quick responses.

I would never have worked that out!?

I have another one that is even trickier that I’ll post in a separate comment shortly, hopefully you can work your magic on that

Need a little help to decipher the mothers name & maiden name from my great grandfathers birth cert, I am thinking it might be Johanna Connell but can't be sure
