SOME SPECIFIC QUESTIONS from "The Ryan Road” by Nancy Ryan Celleri & John Keith MacLeod: When Judith Ryan died her plot of land passed onto a James Breen, was this her son-in-law?” Was Thomas Ryan of Cullenstown, buried in the Adamstown cemetery in Wexford a relation? If so, then how does the McLoughlin family buried in the same plot fit into the relationship?

  • Hi there,

    You certainly have provided lots of detailed information, which is great! This will really give you a great chance of finding some possible contacts in the Wexford area.

    Could you please post your message on the Kilgarvan parish page (Ballyvergin):

    Local information should be able to provide you with some answers to your questions. In the meantime, if there is anything else I can help you with, please do not hesitate to let me know.

    Please make sure you link anyone else in your family who is interested in their Irish heritage to our site - and indeed anyone else you know of Irish heritage.

    Kind regards,

  • Patrick Ryan lived at 9 Bricketstown, Whitechurch which was located close to Poulpeasty in County Wexford.  He was married to Mary and two children lived at home with them at the time of the 1901 census. These were Matthew (25) and  Mary Catherine who was 23. He is described as Agricultural Labourer who could read and write. He was 60 in 1901
    The Patrick Ryan from Bricketstown appears to be dead at the time of the 1911 census

    Thomas Ryan (who was a son of Patrick above) married Mary Ryan on the 13th August 1882 in the Church
    of Poulpeasty in the district of Templeludigan. Thomas was living in Farelstown, Rosegarland (?) as a batchelor and Mary was from Rathturtin (located on the N30 road between Enniscorthy and New Ross) as a spinister. He was a Labourer and she was a Servant. Both fathers of bride and groom were alive in 1882 at the time of their marriage

    I wonder are Patrick and Thomas descendents of Ned Ryan. If they are I have more information

  • Dear RyanPat5160,

    Thank you very much for your reply raising the possibility of a Patrick Ryan (b abt.1841 (=1901-60)) and a Thomas Ryan as being sons of Ned Ryan (b abt.1800).  The year of birth and the location are interestingly close.  However, we have Ned & Judith (nee Clarke) Ryan’s last child as “Edward Ryan (b Jan 1839)”.  Unfortunately we have not found any evidence (e.g. baptism records) that either a “Patrick” or a “Thomas’ was among their children.  The closest we have is a grandchild of Ned & Judith named “Patrick” but here the date of birth (b18 Mar 1867) does not match the child bearing ages of Ned & Judith.  This of course does not exclude the possibility that the “Thomas Ryan of Cullenstown, buried in the Adamstown cemetery in Wexford” is not your Thomas”?

    Thanks again for you interest,
