Castlemore Roscommon, IrelandXO Volunteer ☘
I am the representative for the entire West Cork area and I apologise for delay in responding to your message. I did not receive any notification from Rodger McDonnell despite the fact that he said he would. I would much prefer if you would email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org. I am a volunteer for almost eight years for Ireland XO and do not charge for any research I do.
I have within minutes of starting, located the Baptismal record of four of John & Mary's children. I have indexes for all of the records from 1814 for Skibbereen, Rath & thev Islands Tullagh, Creagh etc and will cointinue to look through them and contact you again when I have your email address.
William of John Dennis & Mary Driscoll (Cape Clear Island) Baptised 20/05/1813 Reg. Ref. 471
Timothy of John Dennis & Mary Driscoill (Baltimore) Baptised 11/10/1818 Reg. Ref. 1602
Jane of John Dennis & Mary Driscoll (Cape Clear) Baptised 10/06/1821 Reg Ref. 2582
Townsend of John Dennis & Mary Driscoll (Cape Clear) Baptised 27/12/1829 Reg Ref. 724 (2)
When I hear from you by email, I have just found a listing of several children with different father & mother names but whom I believe to be closely related to the foregoing family and you. I may also include the Sponsors names to the Baptisms of those above which might indicate relationships to John & Mary
Enjoy and come back to me asap as my time over the coming days is limited.

Baptism of William was on 20/05/1815 on Register. Error on Index, "1813". Sponsors were: Tim Driscoll & Mary Young
Sponsors for Timothy Bap were:Denis McCarthy & Mary McCarthy
Sponsors for Jane were: Pat McCarthy & Mary McCarthy
Sponsors for Townsend (Correct spelling) were Michael Keary & Mary Driscoll
Address on Cape Clear was Cloughnaclina which is a Townland on the Island. This Townland was on three of the four entries on the Register. The one in Baltimore may have been on a day they had travelled to the mainland and baby was born and baptised by local priest. The spelling of Townsend is the correct surname for the family. The Townshend Family inserted the (H) in the name to denote that they were the "Head" Townsend family. There are still Townshend family living and owning Castle Townshend in the village of Castletownshend.
