[Bann Valley] Cooney Family

How do you do! Greetings from Australia.

I recently discovered from a marriage certificate that my Great Grandfather, John Cooney, was born at Vow in 1853. His parents were Lawrence Cooney b.1806 and Bridget Harrington b.1807. The family later migrated to England, and appear in the 1861 Census at Netherby, Cumberland, where Lawrence was a railway labourer. Since there are no records of Irish emigration to England, this is the only clue I have as to where the family came from. They might have been itinerant workers for some landowner in the area, or have some longer attachment to the place, or just passing through; I don't know. Any clues would be appreciated; I would particularly like to know which 'Catholic' parish Vow would have been in, and where John might have been baptized, and where any record might be kept.

Cheers, John
