Re: Query about those tried under White Boys Acts 1831 at Ennis

Thanks for your comments Murph. When I read the full O'Gorman transcript, there is one mention of an interpreter, which helps my query (in part). A large number of the Irish convicts on the ship Asia in 1831 were recorded as neither able to read nor write, and given the political context, it wouldn'...

Re: Query about those tried under White Boys Acts 1831 at Ennis

"It's grand" (as my Dublin Grandma would have said) that you posted the full transcript, Phil, as I only had the few pages of Stephen's trial. So many thanks for sending me the document. Whilst I have been reading various work on the Whiteboys Acts and the Special Commission, this transcript of the ...

Query about those tried under White Boys Acts 1831 at Ennis

Hi all - I am hoping an Irish historian can assist me with a question about the men tried at Ennis under the White Boy Acts in 1831. There is a (partial) transcription which Peter (the librarian) kindly sent me a few years ago of the trial of Stephen Hehir on 25th June 1831, published as " A report ...

Re: Donnellan b.1838 Sixmilebridge

Hi Meredith, welcome to this great forum. Just a few tips: the pattern of baptism names is fairly consistent up to early 1900s, but you need to allow for deaths & the many unrecorded/missing baptisms, of course. Re surname spelling - most Irish migrants in 1800s spoke Irish, not English, and had not...

Re: John Vandeleur of Cloonsnaghta

Hi Dmaynus, I have distant relatives in Ireland who also have a Dutch surname and my searching has led me to believe there were possibly 2 groups of migrants from The Netherlands/Belgium who settled in Ireland in the mid-late 1700s. One group seem to be Catholics, escaping the turmoil created by Nap...

Re: Researching Family of Andrew Donnellan and Mary Connole

Hi again Phil - for your penance, more time in the archives! Your Reilly ancestor arrived on the same ship in 1852 as my Bartholomew Hehir & Michael Hynes ancestors - the Lord Dalhousie!! As Alison Alexander's excellent book, Tasmania's Convicts - How Felons Built a Free Society shows, most were sen...

Re: Researching Family of Andrew Donnellan and Mary Connole

Hi again Phil, one of the ways I have been able to work out family connections is by locating the marriage date where possible, then putting the children's baptisms in descending order. Irish Naming Conventions For sons The 1st son was named after the father's father. The 2nd son was named after the...

Re: Researching Family of Andrew Donnellan and Mary Connole

Hi Phil - you may wish to look more closely at my post re Kapunda, SA, as that is where Patrick married O'Loughlin in 1873. It is also where a John Donnellan and Bridget (nee Kierce) are buried (St John's Catholic), both said to be of Kilmaley (a/c to Bridget's obituary of 1931). There are several O...

Re: Researching Family of Andrew Donnellan and Mary Connole

Hi again Phil, the James Donnellan who arrived in Tas in 1854, from Clare, I believe is the same one who sponsored my relation Catherine Hynes (nee Hehir) who was from a townland near Corrofin, and coming to join her extended family in New Norfolk. He died in NN in 1879, with his widow Mary (not Ann...

Re: Researching Family of Andrew Donnellan and Mary Connole

Hi Phil, let's hope some of these tips assist your quest. I live in Oz and have found this Clare library site brilliant, particularly the people who partake in the forum. One important thing I have learned is to use the GenMaps function - a wealth of information here, including that which assists wi...

Re: Carkill

Hi Sheila, the detective in you shines through! You have found a couple of Carkills in the US that I had missed (the Burke connection). The name Jeremiah/Jerome does appear a couple of times both in Clare and the US and I do believe at least 2 branches of the family have some migrants to the US (one...

Re: Carkill

Thank you Sheila, you are so generous with your time. I have been mapping all the Carkil BDM, Tithe, Griffiths, & census records to ascertain their relationships. The earliest in the records is evidence of a Jeremiah (born abt 1780's?), whose daughter Mary (of Leana) married Thomas Crowe in 1827, wi...

Re: Carkill

Thanks Polycarp, this is interesting. My own research led me to think the Kierce families may have arrived from Ulster after the expulsions there late 1700s. As very few libraries in Oz have any copies of The Other Clare, do you know how I can get a hold of this particular edition of the journal? ki...

Carkill

Hi all - am trying to trace some families with the surname Carkil/Carkill (& many variants in the records, of course) in/around Commons South. In the Tithe Applotment Books I have found a Martin @ Drommher, a John & Martin @ Leana, Thomas @ Commons Nth (Poulkine). I suspect the Martin @ Leana (marri...
