This is interesting. Wasn't he supposedly born in Ireland? It just says "ditto" on the record. Laziness on the part of the enumerator? Did Thomas Ryan not admit to being born in Ireland (They weren't exactly welcomed with open arms in many places at this time)????? I really can't imagine that the record of the Rotherham marriage isn't the one you are looking for.
