Marriage*8 June 1854He married Jane Hinds, daughter of Thomas Hinds and Martha McKiernan, on 8 June 1854 in St. Mary's, Newry, County Down, Ireland. Witnesses to their marriage were Jane's brother, John, and Margaret Murtagh.

The author of "Hinds and Lynch Birmingham" reported finding three different transcriptions of Edmund's and Jane's marriage. One recorded their Church of Ireland marriage, one their Roman Catholic marriage, and the third the civil registration of their marriage, and that all the transcriptions recorded the same date and place of their marriage. The author also reported that each transcription of the marriage record revealed some additional information, and recommended www.RootsIreland.ie as a particularly helpful source for anyone who might seek to verify and confirm the records. He also explained that it was not unusual at that time for Catholic’s in service of the crown, for example police, army, or revenue, to marry in a Church of Ireland service as it was the only Civil Recognized marriage and any benefits which might accrue to the marriage would be given only if the marriage were a civil marriage. The requirement for civil recognition is still required in 2019 but now Roman Catholic marriages have Civil Recognition.8,6,9,1,3,4
Residence*The couple resided in Newry.10
Occupation1862Edmund's name appeared as E. L. Birmingham in the in the official directory of the Inland Revenue Service in 1862 and 1863. He was listed under Divisions each year and his official station was reported as "Ballyg'y", which we suspect may indicate that he was at Ballygally, County Clare.11
Occupation24 February 1864A news article regarding the Inland Revenue Service published on 24 February 1864 reported that Mr. Edmund Lynch Birmingham, Officer of Aughnacloy Division, Newry Collection had been appointed Officer of Birr Division, Birr Collection. Edmund replaced Mr. Hazlet Irvine who was appointed Officer of Wexford 4th Division, Wexford Collection.12
Residence1866When their daughter Agnes was born in 1866, Jane and Edmund resided on Green Street, Parsonstown, Kings County.13,14
OccupationEdmund was working as a gauger which was a customs official who measured the capacity of imported barrels of liquor in order to calculate the customs duty. A more extensive definition of a gauger was a surveying officer under the customs, excise, and internal revenue laws, appointed to examine all tuns, pipes, hogsheads, barrels and tierces of wine, oil, and other liquids, and to give them a mark of allowance, as containing lawful measure. There were also private gaugers in large seaport towns, who were licensed by government to perform the same duties.13,14,15,16
Occupation1874 In 1874, he was working as an Inland Revenue Officer on Nun's Island, County Galway.17
Residence1875Jane and Edmund moved their family closer to Jane's father in County Galway, probably after the deaths of their sons and near the time of Edmund's retirement about 1875, and settled very close to Jane's father, Thomas Hinds, who had retired to Spring Lodge on Circular Road in Upper Dangan. The Birminghams lived near Newcastle, on the same road as Jane's father at different ends. They were about 2 kilometers apart.18
Residence1879 In 1879, Edmund and Jane Birmingham lived in Newcastle, County Galway.19
OccupationEdmund was a retired Inland Revenue Officer.19
Death*28 August 1879He died of heart disease on 28 August 1879 in Newcastle, County Galway, at age 64. His wife Jane was present at his death.20,19

Matilda Mary Birmingham1

b. 9 September 1855
Relationships5th great-granddaughter of John Hinds
Great-grandniece of Walter Hinds
ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Descendants of Timothy Rorke, grandfather of Brick Wall John Joseph Rorke
Father*Edmund Lynch Birmingham1 b. bt 1815 - 1816, d. 28 Aug 1879
Mother*Jane Hinds1 b. 1833
Baptism*9 September 1855Matilda Mary Birmingham was baptized on 9 September 1855 in the Parish Church of Newry, Newry, County Down. Her sponsor was Sara Rigney.1
Marriage*2 May 1873She may have married John J. O'Rorke, son of Thady Rorke and Eleanor Boyd, on 2 May 1873 in the Carmelite Church of St. Theresa, Clarendon Street, Dublin.

It's a long story... John J. O'Rorke went missing from his family that same year and has not been heard from, or sighted, since. The descendants of his siblings have wondered about him in each generation, and speculated about the many roads his life may have taken. A confusing side-note is that, until recently, these descendants believed their ancestors’ surname had always been “O’Rorke”. Current research, however, indicates the family’s surname was consistently “Rorke” until about 1910 when the branch of one of John's brothers began spelling it “O’Rorke”. Family stories about the missing John Joseph included the rumor that while he was away at school studying medicine at what was then Queen’s College Galway and is now the National University of Ireland, Galway, he was alleged to have met a young girl named Birmingham Lynch or Lynch Birmingham with whom he eloped and disappeared.

Patrick Hume, a descendant of John Joseph's brother Michael, decided to try to answer his family's many questions and end the speculation. “Among the family”, Patrick recalled, “John's marriage was always spoken of as a type of concealed, hurried, romantic, clandestine affair of a young student and a schoolgirl.” All very hush-hush. Most in the family believe that John and his young wife separated soon after they married. Speculations about John’s marriage have now traveled down through four generations of Rorkes. “Perhaps the Lynch Birmingham family disapproved of the marriage and/or the Rorke family found John's abandonment of his studies, at minimum, unacceptable.”

Patrick was excited to find the name of John J. O'Rorke in an announcement of his marriage in The Galway Express newspaper of 10 May 1873. John was reported in the newspaper to have married Matilda Mary Birmingham, daughter of Edmund Lynch Birmingham and Jane Hinds on 2 May 1873 in the Carmelite Church of St. Theresa, Clarendon Street, Dublin. John, who was 21 years of age, was described as a bachelor and a medical student living in Galway, the son of Thady O'Rorke. Matilda was 17 years, 8 months of age and described as a spinster daughter of E. L. Birmingham of Galway. John and Matilda were reported to have been married by Martin L. Murphy, O.D.C., a member of the Order of Discalced Carmelites. This is believed to be the first instance of anyone in the Rorke family changing the spelling of their surname from Rorke to O'Rorke.

A newspaper announcement, however, is not an official document. Patrick has still not found any actual proof of the marriage in a church record, or at the General Registrar's Office in Dublin, and can’t help wondering, “Was there really a marriage?” He is searching for the facts, and has other questions. Why would they marry in Dublin when both John and Matilda were living in County Galway? (Her parents were in County Galway and his were in County Roscommon.) Did they elope without their parents’ knowledge? Whom did they tell? Why would they marry so young and while they were still in school? Was it a rushed marriage? Were their parents involved? Who signed approval for the underage Matilda to marry? Was there a child?2,3,4
(Wife) Brick Wall ResearchIt was at this stage in his research that Patrick found Matilda Birmingham's mother, Jane Hinds, on our website. He contacted us, hoping we might know something about Matilda’s missing husband, John Joseph Rorke. Unfortunately, we didn’t. His research project, though, is such a disturbingly perfect Brick Wall, complete with an actual missing person, we were “hooked” and wanted to help.

Working with Patrick, we learned that, although John Joseph disappeared forever after their marriage, Matilda did not. In 1882, using her maiden name, she immigrated to Australia with her widowed mother and sister. We wonder if she had been living with her parents again in County Galway – and, if so, for how long.5,4
(Daughter) Residence1875An unmarried Matilda is believed to have been with her parents when they moved their family closer to her grandfather, Thomas Hinds, in County Galway about 1875. Her grandfather had retired to Spring Lodge on Circular Road in Upper Dangan. The Birminghams lived near Newcastle, on the same road at different ends. They were about 2 kilometers apart.6
(Daughter) Emigration21 December 1882Matilda sailed from London with her mother and sister on the ship "Chimborazo" and arrived in Victoria, Australia, on 21 December 1882. Matilda's age was recorded as 24, although she was actually 27, her sister Agnes was 16 and her mother was 48.7,8
(Wife) Brick Wall We don’t like it that Matilda's husband, John Joseph Rorke, went missing from his family in 1873 -– or that he’s stayed missing all these years. Someone, somewhere, must know what happened to him… If you know anything that might help us find John, please let us hear from you..5
