Edward FitzGerald (7 Oct 1838 - ?)

His birth was announced in Freemans Journal of 10 October 1838 : "On the 7th instant in Upper Fitzwilliam-street, the lady of G W Fitzgerald, Esq., of a son"

He was baptised at St Andrews on 16 Oct 1838; the sponsors were Edward & Mary Fitzgerald; in the version of the register that appears second on the film at the Library, the sponsors' names are Edward & Mary Fitzpatrick.

I have wondered if this was the same Edward and Mary FitzGerald who were sponsors just a year earlier at George and Marcella's wedding. Also if perhaps Fitzpatrick could have been Mary Fitzgerald's maiden name. The manuscript book that our Grandfather George FitzGerald was given by his mother as - as he told me - the family tree of a female ancestor who didn't want her family's name or history to be lost when she married into the Fitzgeralds. It is a history of the Fitzpatricks.
