I would like some information on my ancestors the Hannon Family, if possible, please.  I know some lived and are buried in Clonbur and that some were members of the RIC. I would like to get additional information on where they served in the RIC and where they originated and what happened when the RIC dispanded.  Are there any decendents left in the region at this time who would like to make contact?

Many thanks,

Maria Hannon.




Foley Family

Springwagon's picture


I have recently discovered several lines of my family tree that I didn't know about. One is that of a Great Great Grandmother, Honora Elizabeth Foley. She was born in Ireland in 1850, the daughter of Thomas Foley (b.1803) of Mount Unicke village and Bridget McGrath of Castlemartyr (b.1820). They were married at Killeagh Cross Roads, according to some information I have received. Is that a church or a place?

O'Hare and McVey who left for Liverpool

Millfield's picture

I have recently discovered that the roots of my husband's O'Hare family in Liverpool are in the Catholic Community of Warrenpoint Co Down. Michael O'Hare and Elizabrth McVey were married in Liverpool in 1871. They had several children including Thomas and Elizabeth whose children and grandchildren are thought to have visited the ancestral home in Co Down. I am anxious to verify that these people came from Warrenpoint and to trace any relevant baptismal certificates. Any relevant information would be very gratefully received.

Looking for cavanaghs

 My 3rd great grandfather, Daniel Cavanagh, gave St. Mary, Wexford as his parish when he joined the army in Cork in 1809. In November 1809, he married Margaret King, a girl from Lydney in the Forest of Dean, at St. Mary's church, Warwick. He was posted as a member of the 103rd regiment of foot to Guernsey, Channel Islands, where a son, James, was born, July 1811, The next sighting I have is 1816 in Quebec, Canada and the birth of a second son, Thomas. The regiment was reduced as surplus to requirements in 1817 and he was discharged, now a corporal, in October of that year.
