My wife's g/grandfather was Michael Henry Crimmins born abt 1840 in Bantry. He was a sailor who emigrated to Brisbane Australia in early 1860s. His father was Timothy Francis Crimmins, his mother Sophia Melifont both (apparently) born in Bantry about 1805-1820.
We know of one brother to Michael, Timothy Francis Crimmins b.1846 in Bantry who emigrated to USA in late 1860s or early 1870s and married Martha Crandall in 1872, and lived in New York (Sparrowbush) and Mass. (Boston/Medford). We learnt about Timothy Jr from a descendant Charlie Lambert of Mass. USA.
If anyone can help with advice about this family or how to search for their records in Bantry it would be appreciated.
Is there a Heritage Centre (like the Mallow Heritage Centre in East Cork) which can help with Bantry family history?
