There are then and now pictures of Newtown House in Newtown East townland at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.583801528309940.1073741832.583616304995129 Up to 1867, it was part of the estate of Francis Brew.

Another example in a Church of Ireland family where nobody spoke Irish: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Kilrush_Rural/Carnaun/363661/ Cissie O'Donnell was the daughter of John George O'Donnell and Rachel Brew, but was described as `niece' by her maternal grandparents. Her pare...

I had a look at the Buglers. It looks like Peter Bugler (who married Daniel Joseph Garry's widow) was a nephew of Mr P Bulger of Castleroberts (who attended the funeral of Daniel's second cousin once removed Michael Garry). I don't see any close connection between the Tubridys. The ancestors of Tom ...

How annoying that multiply.com is long gone!

I noted that Kevin added useful comments about the Callinans there, clearly after the Wayback Machine harvested the page for the one and only time:

I have recently discovered that the twice-widowed D J Garry, whose second wife's obituary appears above, married a third time, on 30 January 1918 to Anne Tubridy, daughter of Stephen Tubridy and Anne Fitzgerald. After D J Garry's death on 12 June 1927, his widow remarried on 25 February 1936 to Pete...

Less than a week after I first heard of "Bishop Ireland's Connemara Experiment" from Jimbo above, it was the subject of the "On This Day" item on Drivetime on RTÉ Radio 1 this evening. Listen back here: http://www.rte.ie/radio/utils/radioplayer/rteradioweb.html#!rii=9%3A20845278%...

Mary appears to be Daniel's second wife. These look like the birth of the 15 month old infant on the passenger list: https://familysearch.org/search/collection/results?count=75&query=%2Bfather_givenname%3Adaniel~%20%2Bfather_surname%3Aquinlivan~%20%2Bmother_givenname%3Amary~%20%2Bmother_surname%...

I am still here, Geoff, but still more interested in Binford Throne's wife and her siblings than in Binford himself!

I am glad that my post has helped you.

Best wishes

Paddy.

In Cloughaunbeg East in 1901, Michael and Honor Whyte's household included his "Niece" Molly Tubridy (11): http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Creegh/Cloughaunbeg_East/1078191/ By 1911, Honora Whyte had been widowed. Her household now included "Grand Daughter" ...

Hi Jimbo You found several bits and pieces that I had missed! In particular, I had not found the 1910 census with the 1886 migration year. rootsireland.ie currently has no birth matching ed quinlivan from 1851 to 1863 inclusive. The younger Edward Quinlivan of St. Paul may have been born in a parish...

Another example: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Querrin/Querrin/365367/ Thomas Mahony (9) appears to have been Mary Clancy (75)'s grandson and not her nephew as described.

All of Mary's children predeceased her, including Edward and Mary, whom I had not previously accounted for. Her surviving next of k...

The people of the parish of Killard seems to have an unusual propensity for using local placenames which are not official townland names. One of these appears in the townland of Doonbeg as Rayoganagh on the Historic 6" OSi maps and as Rinnagonnaght on the Historic 25" OSi maps; see http://...
