My ancestors came from Broadford.  My 2 x great grandmother was Bridget Kearney/Carney born c. 1843.  She came over to South Africa in 1861 with the Aided Immigration to the Cape together with the following Kearney'/Carney's - James, Patrick (with his wife Catherine Shaughnessy), John (with his wife Mary Toolan) and Edmond.  On the passenger list it shows KEARNEY

I am trying to ascertain whether they were siblings or not and also to perhaps find a baptism for them.  James died in South Africa and on his Death Certificate it shows James CARNEY - Parents Michael & Mary CARNEY (nee Naughton).  His son Michael signed the Certificate as CARNEY.

I'd appreciate any help

  • Hi Felix


    Many thanks for your query to Ireland Reaching Out. 

    I will be in the Local Studies Centre in Ennis next week and I can take a look at the parish registers for you then.  It might be a help to you to go over the information that is available through the Clare County Library website.  They have put on a lot of very useful information including passenger lists, headstone inscriptions, etc.  Their link is:

    If you have any further information that you think may be of help, please email me at:


    Kind regards,
