Miss Bridget Donohoe 1 was born in Cum, Addergoole, Co Mayo, Ireland on 11 January 1891.
She was the daughter of David Donohoe (b. 1861), a farmer, and Catherine Moyles and she grew up in a Roman Catholic household which spoke both the Irish and English languages. She had three known siblings: Michael (b. 1887), Mary (b. 1889) and John (b. 1895). Her mother died at a young age following childbirth with her younger sibling John and her father was remarried to a woman named Ellen Cawley (b. circa 1860 (2)) and they had three more children: Honoria "Norah" (b. 1899), Ellen (b. 1901) and Katie (b. 1903).
Bridget first appears on the 1901 census when she was living with her family at house 6 in Cum, Addergoole and on the 1911 census living at house 7 in Cum. By the time of the latter record she had no stated profession.
