Re: Master Hugh Brady of Ruan National School, b.ca.1844, d.1918

According to prior information on this thread Hugh Brady NT was born in 1844, prior to the commencement of the baptism register in 1846. Also most of the register is missing between Aug 1853 and Jul 1855. There possibly may have been another child during this period. According to the 1905 List of N...

The Heaphys - A Family of Teachers

While perusing the 1905 List of Teachers, my attention was drawn to a bunch of teachers named Heaphy, all educated in Ballinacally, so I decided this required further investigation. Robert Heaphy and Margaret Glynn, both teachers, were married at Ballinacally in 1861. It's likely that the ceremony t...

Re: 1905 teachers census now online NAI

Thanks Sharon for drawing attention to this useful resource. It should be noted that the filename NAI, PCO/10/1 Crehan-Croke is incorrect, describing only the first page, whereas the full range of the file encompasses Crehan-Darroch. Also the file NAI, PCO/10/1 Moynihan-Moynihan seems to be an unsor...

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

Hi Kerry Those Special Commission transcripts of Peter Gorman include the trials that resulted from the Clondagad Riot of May 1831 and the death of Sergeant James Robinson, the subject of a discussion on this forum in 2009. http://www.ourlibrary.ca/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=493&p=1261&hilit=inciden...

Re: Donnellan b.1838 Sixmilebridge

Hi All, Sharon that Charles Donellan death record may be for the Charles Donellan who appears in the townland of Urlan More, Kilmaleery Parish, in Griffiths Valuation. I have him pegged as the probable father of Honora Donellan, first wife of Michael Phillips(c1828-1911), a great grand uncle of mine...

Re: Patrick Bugler (1895-1964)

Hi Sheila Thanks for those links, but these nuns are a bit remote from my family to warrant the task of trying to track them down. I was aware of that 2016 post on the Clenagh McInerneys, but at the time I had nothing further to add to the discussion. My chief interest with that family was (and is) ...

Re: Inishcaltra Parish in Griffiths Valuation

Hi Sheila
I was feeling guilty that we had diverged from the original subject matter so I started a new thread for Patrick Bugler.

Hi Sheila I was feeling uneasy that we had diverged from the original subject of Inishcaltra Parish in Griffiths Valuation so I started a new thread. I hope forum members will forgive us for border jumping. At least we started in Co Clare. Yes that obit for Bridget Bugler is quite extraordinary, wit...

Re: Inishcaltra Parish in Griffiths Valuation

I have to report that I was following a false trail with Patrick Bugler of Kilrateera Lower. What set me off on that false trail was his civil marriage registration which clearly declared his father's name to be Patrick. https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/ma...

Re: Inishcaltra Parish in Griffiths Valuation

Hi Sheila Yes, with such a compact group there comes a temptation to try and put them all in their proper place. But I will resist the urge to stray off the beaten track and content myself with just Patrick's immediate family(all 14 of them!). You should be aware that the NAI's indexing of the Tithe...

Re: Inishcaltra Parish in Griffiths Valuation

Thanks Sheila for that very informative post. My connection to the Buglers is with Patrick Bugler(1892-1964) who married Teresia McInerney, a first cousin of my father. Patrick was a son of Patrick Bugler and Margaret Crotty of Kilrateera Lower. In the 1901 census all the family except Margaret gave...

Does anyone know why the Griffiths Valuation records for the Parish of Inishcaltra on askaboutireland.ie are allocated to County Galway rather than County Clare?

Re: Researching Family of Andrew Donnellan and Mary Connole

I agree with Sheila's comment re the transcriptions. We continually make the point that the transcriptions should not be regarded as a primary information source. They are not, and on all occasions researchers are advised to refer back to the parish registers on microfilm. But the transcriptions are...
