Be careful -
Another Fitzsimmons family off the Westminster (29-Jul-1841), Patrick, Bridget, George (family 11), you also have listed as Protestant when they were R/Catholic. There is also a Mary aged 18, who is missing from the list. Your listing also says that Patrick Fitzsimmons and Bridget O’Connell had a daughter Bridget b. 1847. This Patrick’s wife was Bridget REILY and the birth quoted is to Thomas Fitzsimmons and Bridget O’Connell.
