How can I find the birth date for John Clery (Clarey, Cleary)

How can I find the birth date for John Clery (Clarey, Cleary) born around 1836 and married Elizabeth (Eliza) Banks born around 1838, they were married 20 November 1865, but no record of their birth dates.

They had 2 sons, John, born 4 July 1869, and Thomas, born 12 April 1871.

I would be most grateful for any help.

Thanks for your reply,

The only information I can find is that John Clarey was from and Census records and it states he was born in Offaly, Kings County, Ireland and Elizabeth Banks came from Sligo, although some Census records also say Offaly Kings County, that is whats confusing me.

 They left Ireland and again, the Census records show that their son Thomas was born in Dundee, Angus, Scotland. There seems to be no records after that, but they definitely did live in Dundee, Angus, Scotland as does the rest of my family.

Im not sure if this information is any help, but it is all I have been able to find and I have hit a brick wall.

Thanks again,

Karen (Cleary)

The birth records of both of the boys are indexed on

There might be some information on the original.


you can search Griffiths valuation.  I only saw two Banks households in King' s County and about 25 in Sligo.

It might be easier to work on her first.


A birth search turned up a couple of John Clearys born at the right time but none whose parents were Timothy AND Bridget.
