Ireland, Country
This page is for entries which apply to the whole of Ireland, eg general information on Ireland , one name studies covering the whole of Ireland, and enquiries when you have no idea which part of Ireland your surnames came from.

Surnames in Ireland, like England, do tend to be strong in certain areas. First names are sometimes claimed to have regional patterns as well. It's worth checking Familysearch provided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for clues.

red mail James Francis MULHEIR
Looking for official details of his birth. In 1901 and 1911 censuses his birthplace is listed as Liverpool, Lancs, circa 1867/8, but there doesn't seem to be any record corresponding with that.

His marriage to Elizabeth WILKINS - in 1890, East Clevedon, Somerset - he is recorded as a Sailor, and there is no record of him in censuses prior to 1901 - in England and Wales, nor any reliable records of his stated father Patrick. Assuming from the surname that there are Irish origins. Any help would be appreciated.

Commander Ralph GORE R.N. 1751 - 1858
According to Walker's Hibernian Magazine Lt. Ralph Gore R.N. married Frances Hay in May 1808 in Cl(o)yne, County Cork. I suspect the marriage record is held in the National Archives, Dublin folio M6083. They had two sons, William (b 1910) and Ralph (b abt. 1819). I think this latter Ralph married Rosina Dufaur in 1843, but am not 100% certain of this. I would like contact with anyone who is following Cmdr. Ralph Gore and his descendants NB. The Kentish Gazette gives DoM as 18th April 1808.
red mail Quinn Thomas
My Grandfather Thomas was born around 1897. We believe in either Co Galway or Co Roscommon.

As far as we know he had a sister called Rose and his Father was Patrick who we believe to be a farmer. any information would be greatly appreciated. We think he went back to Ireland in about 1933- 34 but not sure could have been later

red mail looking for gr-gr-grandfather
Francis SHARKEY, b. c 1820 with 'origin' as Ireland appears on his son's marriage certificate in Chesterville, Ontario, Canada. I belong to but cannot find his death in Canada. His wife's name appears as either: Anna ALGEBAR, Cloa ALGUIRE, or Anna CLEHALGAR due to illegible copies of sources. I am looking for proof of his person with a birth or a marriage certificate or emigration record, since I have him living on a particular lot no. in Chesterville. I'm really searching for his story and why he made the difficult crossing to Canada, and from where. His son's name is also Francis SHARKEY, b. 1854 in Canada and married in Chesterville, Ont. Canada on 24 June 1879 to Sarah Ann STALLMAYER(born Cda) . All I know for sure is that there are hundreds of Francis Sharkeys. (or Shirkeys). I believe he was Roman Catholic.

red mail Michael Hogan / Mary Fitzgerald
I am trying to track down my paternal grandfather's Irish ancestors who emigrated to Newfoundland in the mid 1800s. The one who migrated was Michael HOGAN, born between 1810 and 1830, married to Mary FITZGERALD about whom practically nothing is known. They had at least one son Daniel born in Sep 1847, from whom I am descended. It is not clear whether they emigrated before or after Daniel was born. Michael was a fisherman when he came to Newfoundland, but may have had another occupation in Ireland. I would like to know what part of Ireland Michael and Mary were from, who their parents were, when exactly they emigrated, whether they had other children, and any other available information. I realize this is very little to go on; that of course has been my problem to this point. :-( Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks, Sean

Granville Shields (1848-1023) of Virginia married Mary Talkington (1845-1887) later married (1899) Louesa Lovina Swiger (1879-?).... Thomas Shields (1825-1888) of Virginia married Nancy Frum (1822-1883).... I have no official records confirming the accuracy of the following information: James Shields (1791-1852) {James had a sister named Sarah} married Elizabeth Dillon (1793-1832).... Robert Shields (1749-1856) married Elizabeth ? (1750- 1840) {maiden name unknown} John Shields (1726-1806) married Mary Chapman (1733-1776).... My information shows John Shields born at Ballydine Crossroads (this place may no longer exist) in Tipperary County Ireland. I have no records of his emigration nor possible emigration of his son or grandson (James and Robert) or even if they were born in Ireland or USA. If anyone can corroborate any of this information or know of any official records to confirm this, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Becky

John Burkett (1798 - 1855) just gives Ireland as his place of birth in the English 1851 census, then deliberately dies before the 1861 census.

Later, possibly when his eyesight was failing, he ran a pub. He married a Mary Ann somebody from Binfield, Berkshire so ceremony prob took place in England. Does anybody have any ideas on where in Ireland he came from? Jenny

red mail Crellin
I have traced William Charles Crellin to Peterborough, Ontario, Canada (in 1923) with his second wife, Annie White Crellin. It is believed that they had two sons, possibly Roy and Jack. Annie died in 1938, but I have not been able to trace the birth or any other information about the sons. Charlie had a daughter Mary, from his previous marriage to Edith Wilson (who died relatively young). Charlie or Chas as he has been known has stated on some forms that he was born in Belfast, but on others, Douglas on the Isle of Man. He was born in November 1882 but I have not been able to trace any record. He died in 1951. His father was called Charles and he was a Miller. I would like to find out definitely where he was born, and what happened to his two sons.
red mail Conroy, Muloye in Ireland
I am trying to trace my great great grandmother named Bridget Muloye and her husband Thomas Conroy (he was born about 1835 per UK census of 1871). Her name on her children's birth certifcates is shown as 'Conroy, formerly Muloye'. This was written by the Registrar so I have some doubts about the spelling of her surname as I haven't traced anyone else with that name. I have not traced Thomas Conroy either. All I have as his place of birth - by census and children's birth certificates (Mary and Michael) as Ireland. Unfortunately I don't have the area either of them were born. He was a coal miner in Staffordshire but no record of his family in the Census until 1871. The children were born in Bilston in 1858 and 1862. If anyone could provide any relevant information that would be a great help.

red mail Cornelius Bonner - Ireland
Looking for information on Cornelius Bonner who was a private in Captain John Paleys Company of the 1/71st Regiment of foot, which took part in the British Invasion of the River Plate in 1806-1807. The Master Rolls records states that he remained in South America. Also on the Master Rolls was a Theophilus Bonner a private in Captain Falconers Company of the 1/71st Regiment of foot and I assume, might be his brother or cousin. Cornelius Bonner would probably have been born around 1781-1786. I would like to find out his place of birth and life before joining the 1/71st Regiment of Foot and hear from anyone who may have him in their family tree.
red mail McMahon origins in Ireland: Tyrone?
My primary need is to find Robert McMahon's Irish roots. I know that, in Augusta Virginia, Robert had neighbors and relationships that may provide a clue to his origins in Ireland. I have reason to believe that he, and several of his Virginia neighbors, had been planters in the North of Ireland. Robert McMahon/McMachon came to the US in the early to mid-1700's. By 1742, Robert (b. abt. 1706, IR?) was in Augusta County, Virginia. An Augusta court record of 1747 shows his wife's name as Joan or Jean. In Augusta County, Virginia, Robert's nearest neighbors and closest aquaintances included Lockhard/Lockhart, Donaghy, Reaburn, Walker and Campbell. (His second wife was Widow Reaburn and one Hugh Donaghy married Robert's granddaughter.) In their book "The Scotch-Irish" Bill & Mary Durning show Protestant McMahon (Irish), Donaghy (Scotch) and Campbell (Scotch) families as planters in County Tyrone; Barony Dungannon; Parish, Aghaloo. Any information on these people would be most welcome I hope that having other family names, along with McMahon, may provide a clue to the famiy's origins and suggest a migration pattern. Thanks, Johanna
red mail Cochran
I am looking for a male Cochran b. about 1784 who claimed he was born in Dublin (city or county?). He was apparently a runaway to the US, possibly between about 1800 and 1813. In the US, he lived in the state of Kentucky for at least a short time. His only known child (William Crittenden Cocran) was born there abt. 1814. It is a long shot, I know, but perhaps there is a runaway Cochran in someone's family history who meets the timeframes and locale. Thank you. Johanna
red mail Cronin family from Ireland to Michigan
The family of Timothy Cronin (b. abt 1807), wife - Hannah (b. abt. 1808), son - Daniel (b. abt.1823), daughter-in-law - Margaret (b. abt. 1827), son?- Michael (b. abt. 1835) and daughter? - Hannah (b. abt. 1843) were all born in Ireland. They came to the US between 1843 and 1860 and are recorded in Paw Paw, Michigan in the 1860 census. The males listed above indicate they are Day Laborers or Farm Laborers. I feel that they came during the famine and selected Michigan to join relatives named Hennessy. The Hennessy family in Paw Paw was that of James Hennessy, son of Hannah Cronin Hennessy. (Spellings in records range: Henesy, Hennesy, Hennessy, Hennessey, etc.) Does anyone know the barony, parish, townlands these Cronins and Hennessys came from in Ireland? and perhaps why they left? Thank you. Johanna

No parents names on death cert but after researching all Lynch families in early Auckland am wondering if she was descended from James Lynch (fencible soldier, Howick, NZ orginally Dublin) & his wife Jane Holmes. Also a possibility her family emigrated to Australia prior to moving to NZ. Any information greatfully received.

red mail George William Strong/Northern Ireland
My great grandfather was George William Strong. I have very little information as all his children have passed away. We were told he had a stud farm somewhere in Northern Ireland. He allegedly lost his temper with a british lady who was hitting one of the horses and she took him to court suing him for swearing at her for all that he had. He possibly was in the irish constabulary when he was very young. He was married and divorced in Ireland. We think he was born circa 1861. After losing his farm he emigrated to South Africa possibly with his brother called Peter. He worked there as a stock inspector and married a dutch lady named Elizabeth Maria Hamer. He had ten children with her and perhaps their names will give a clue to his connections in Ireland. They were Mary, Norah, Bessie, Sydney, James(Jim), Richard(Dick), Peter. He apparently had two sons by a previous marriage but we are not sure if this was in Ireland or South Africa. We have not been able to get any information as most of the Irish papers were burnt in 1922 so no census info is available and it is very difficult to establish much in Ireland. Any information would be very much appreciated. We did find that two brothers named William and George Strong had land in Fermanagh and wondered if they are perhaps distant family?
red mail Deasy Family Ireland/London
My Great Grandfather was William Deasy born approx 1840 in Ireland. His wife was Johannah Deasy( shown as Anna Daisy in 1891 Census but Johannah in 1901) also born in Ireland approx 1848, maiden name unknown. At some point they moved to London in the late 1800s and in 1901 were shown to be living in West Ham. Their children were William, James, Johannah, Mary and Catherine. In 1901 a niece Johannah Regan was living with them. I know that William Deasy died in 1911 and Johannah Deasy possibly died in 1901. I would be grateful for any information on this family. I am having real difficulty finding where they came from in Ireland and any marriage details. Most of the websites I have looked at lead me to a brick wall! Please can anyone help ? Thank you

red mail Louden
Looking for information on James George Louden. DOB around 1870-1880. His descendants are known as follows, his son, Lawrence Leroy Louden born 1903, grandson, Alfred Lawrence Louden born 1941?, great grandson, Alfred Lawrence Louden II born 1969. Information stops at James George Louden. I found this information on the deceased's social security card applications. Lawrence Leroy has listed James George as his father. I can find no information on him. All are from the Illinois/Pennsylvania area. I have recently come across information on the original Loudens. I was hoping someone could place the originals in the family tree I already have begun. I do not know if they are related in any way but, that is what I need to find out. The original story is as follows --- The Louden family originally came from Ireland and the first recorded marriage in the Parish books is that of George Louden and Elizabeth Cuttbertson in September 1655. Their descendants, John (born 1659), George (born 1680), and William (born ??) apparently led peaceful and useful lives in as much their names appear in the Parish records and not in the police records. John's sons were restless. Robert (John's son) as a young lad made a trip to Scotland to visit relatives. He didn't care for Scotland nor his relatives but lost his heart to Rebecca Jane Scott (who was the sister of Walter Scott the writer) and promptly slept with her. In those days in Scotland that constituted a legal marriage. Rebecca and Robert were promptly disowned by the Scott family so they returned to Ireland and were also disowned by the Louden family. Marrying out of the Parish in those days was considered worse than high treason. The youngsters traipsed off to America and settled in Philadelphia. For several years, Robert worked as a weaver in the daytime and at night he helped increase the population. It might be interesting to relate that Rebecca and Walter would never have been born had it not been for some thieves who dug up Rebecca's mother for the jewels buried with her. Apparently Scottish doctors didn't use stethoscopes in those days and Rebecca's mother had been buried alive. The thieves attempted to cut a ring from her finger and she sat up, screamed, and scared ten years off the thieves happy lives. She crawled home, scratched on the door at dawn, and scared her father into a heart attack. This story is not heresay but was authenticated by "Ripley's Believe It or Not". Robert and Rebecca were displeased by Philadelphia so Bob took a boat trip to New Orleans and up the Mississippi River, landed in St Louis, and headed over to French Village on the Illinois side. There he met Hiram Blake and decided to settle there. He hitchhiked back to Philadelphia over pioneer trails, sold out his weaving business, bought a covered wagon, loaded his family and household effects and traveled by Oxen over the Appalachians to Illinois. When he arrived in Trenton, he found his old friend Hiram who had left the French Village, took out a homestead, rolled up his sleeves, felled trees, made a clearing, built a log cabin, and became a prosperous farmer. He reared thirteen legitimate children and countless others. He died May 4th 1880at the age of 82 years. He was the first male Louden for over 200 years to live beyond 50 years of age. One of his daughters, Mary, who was steeped in family tradition and tales handed down said that many years ago a magistrate by the name of Louden sent an innocent man to the gallows and the victim screamed a curse on all male descendants that they would not live beyond fifty, his own age which was cut short unjustly. the last few years of Bob's life his spine became so curved that when he walked on the street he always had a grandchild hanging on for dear life to his coattails to keep him from falling flat on his face. It is debatable as to whether hard work caused it or his rabbit like propensities. Shortly before his death he and Rebecca sat for two days to have daugerotypes made for all thirteen children. Each exposure lasted for about thirty minutes with their necks braced with iron collars to keep from moving. The existing daugerotypes look as though both of them were angry fugitives from the monkey cage but old timers in Trenton affirm that they were both lovable and cheerful creatures. One of their greatest crosses was that one of their sons, Benjamin Franklin Louden, married Hiram Blakes daughter Charity. Hiram was a great friend of theirs but his daughter was half Indian and in those days a "mixed breed" was considered a very low and unsavory type of person. Robert had become a great friend of Abraham Lincoln when he was a young lawyer and the friendship strengthened as the years advanced. During the Civil War, Robert refused to join the Army and paid for a substitute and was jeered and hated in Trenton. For apparent spy activities and interest in the cause of the Confederacy he was arrested and sentenced to death at Jefferson Barracks in Saint Louis. Two times he was reprieved and finally pardoned by Lincoln. After his death it was discovered he was working all the time as a confidential agent for Lincoln and a novel later appeared written around his activities--"The Copperhead". At the time of his death Robert was considered one of the wealthiest farmers in southern Illinois and saw to it that all of his children were provided for. He made it so easy for them that none of them knew or appreciated the value of money. (Quite a bit longer than we usually allow as an entry, but so fascinating we made an exception - Editor)
