  • Notes 
    • Siblings at least: Mary and two males unknown (one who did something wrong and was transported to Australia in a "Coffin Ship" and the other possibly Arthur.)

      Bridget was shown as living at home, with her husband Thomas Dowling and children, in Dysartbeagh, on the night of 31st March 1901 in the Census. She is shown as 47 years of age. The census shows her as an unmarried Roman Catholic who can Read & Write, speaking English as opposed to Irish. Typically of the time the census does not show an occupation for the wife.

      Also appeared to have half sisters and brother(Patrick) surnamed Perette. Confusingly Patrick was supposed to be a first cousin to Daniel Joseph Dowling (son of Thomas and Bridget). As he is one of Bridget's children some facts here are incorrect.
