Researching George Alcock b. circa 1790 and Anne Hawkins b. 1794.  Not certain whether they came from Co. Carlow, Wicklow or Wexford.  They emigrated to Ontario in about 1840.  Their son Richard Beecham married Frances Pollard from Hacketstown, Carlow.  Other children were Susana, Sarah, William Frederick b. 1824, Thomas Moody b. 1817, George, Maryanne.
My Agars come from Knockulard, Carlow County.  James came to America in 1850/52.  His wife Eliza Whitaker with their 4 remaining children came aboard the Antarctica 2 years later.  Eliza and their oldest son, James Jr. died of ships fever.   Their daughter, Mary Ann was about 14 at the time and she took care of the 2 younger brothers until they arrived in New York to be met by the father, James.  Any information about this family would be appreciated


Researching the Bell family - specifically Ann and Mary with Father John protestants and farmers of Minaughrim and Clonegal with connections to the Sterne family of Clonegal and Riley family of Wexford. Ann and Mary born 1790 - 1800 Ann and Mary (with probably daughter Susannah Sterne) emigrated to Australia 1828, and 1838 respectively. Would like to make a connection between Mary Bell and Charles Sterne.
Thanking you for any information,

John Bowles married to Ann Mills about 1799.  They lived Dunleckney, Co. Carlow from about 1808 to 1818, four children born there and then emigrated to Canada.  He would have been the shoemaker in Dunleckney.  They also had three children before Dunleckney but I don't know where yet.
His brother, Joseph Bowles, married to Ann Feltus (probably she was from Dunleckney) in Carlow town in 1808 where he was a shoemaker with a shop on Burrin Street.  He emigrated to Canada about 1830.
William Bowles, probably another brother, lived in Carlow town until dying there in 1886 at age 86.  Do not know his occupation for sure but he may have been a saddlemaker.  I believe he was married and had children but have not found any records to prove that yet.
The Bowles family was all from Ballickmoyler, co. Laois but had strong repetitive connections with Carlow town and Dunleckney from the mid-1700's.
In co. Laois were tenants of the Cooper family from Newtown, Co. Carlow which is near Dunleckney so the Coopers may have been their ongoing connection to that area.

Would be interested in any Bowles/Boles information from anytime and anywhere in Carlow.  My known information is posted at

Am looking for families Byrne and Goss.  John Byrne married Margaret Goss and

I am searching for LAWRENCE CALVIN CAVANAGH, who died in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1920. His obituary stated he came from Ireland 60 years prior, so in 1860. He was born abt October 1837 in Ireland. His wife most likely provided that information. However, my mother, his granddaughter, said that family legend was that he came as a boy, that his parents died during the passage, that the ship went to the Grosse Ile quarantine station near Quebec, instead of to Halifax, their destination, because of disease. Another boy was said to have survived. They ran away from the French priests who were trying to assist them, worked in lumber yards in northern New England, and Lawrence Calvin Cavanagh eventually made his way to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, where relatives already lived. He had 8 daughters and no sons, so I cannot guess his father's name. He named his first daughter Mary Elizabeth, the second daughter Augusta, the third daughter was known as Frances Effie (but her name may have been Malvinah or Alvinah), then came Alice, Emma, Annie, Catherine, and Elinor. I am puzzled that a Roman Catholic family would choose CALVIN as his middle name. If anyone has women with any of these names,
especially Mary Elizabeth or Augusta, or has any information for Lawrence Calvin Cavanagh (any spelling), I would be very happy to hear about it.
Thank you in advance. Shirley


Crawford - Tullow - William Crawford born about 1846, reputedly in Carlow. Married Lucy Anne French (born 1850 in Monivea, Galway) in Ottawa, Canada in 1874. Parents listed as George and Margaret Crawford. William Crawford was a teacher in Ottawa. He moved to the Parry Sound area in Ontario shortly after his marriage and died in 1879 leaving his wife and two children.  There is only one Crawford in the Griffith's Valuation for Carlow and that is George Crawford living at The Course, Townland of Tullow in the parish of Tullowphelim. I think it is quite possible that this George Crawford is William's father.  I would love to hear from anyone with information or similar connections.  Marilyn


Searching for the family of Eliza Carr, b. in Co. Carlow 8 Sep 1845.  Emigrated to Williamsport, PA, c1851.  Travelled with her father (possibly named William) and two brothers.  I find her first in Henry, Marshall Co. IL where she married James O'Malley.  They had son William (b. 1865) in Henry, son James B. (b. 1867) in Ottawa, LaSalle Co., IL, and then moved to Fairbury, IL where they settled permanently and had children Edward, Mary, Elizabeth Johanna, Matthew, Anna C., Ellen Gertrude, Grace and Peter.   I'd appreciate any information on this family.
Kathy Strickland
Eliza CARR was born in Co. Carlow 8 Sep 1845, names of parents unknown.  Her mother died in Ireland c1848.  She emigrated to the Williamsport, Pennsylvania area with her father and brothers about 1851. Married James O'Malley in Henry (Marshall Co.) Illinois on 22 Apr 1864.  Eventually settled and raised a family in Fairbury (Livingston Co.) Illinois.
Any help with this family is most welcome!
Kathy Strickland


It may be a long shot but the name Carr rang a bell. The father of George Bernard Shaw, of Carlow of course, was Thomas Carr Shaw which might suggest, as it then was a common (protestant?) custom, that his mothers' maiden name was Carr. Thomas Carr Shaw was born in 1832.

George CUMMINS and his wife Margaret (maiden name unknown).   George first appears in the RC parish register in Tullow in 1770, as a baptism sponsor so I would estimate his birth about 1740s. I think their first child was born 1785. Margaret may have a connection to the Maher family. They lived in the townland of Castlemore, attended the RC church at Ratthoe, part of Ballon parish, and also had connections to Tullow.
Bridget CUMMINS, b 1785; m. Stephen AUGHNEY of Roscat

Hi Folks,
I am starting to research my family name, Cuddy, who came from Tullow Street in Carlow Town and I can go back to 1880 but the trail stops there. The family business were tailors and they ran the business from 45 Tullow street , Carlow town. If anyone has any additional information I would be delighted to hear from you.


Hi, I am relatively new to the list and have been enjoying the wealth of  information that everyone is sharing. Our links to Carlow include John Corcoran (born 1804 or 1814 - we have conflicting information on this) who married Bridget Kavanagh in 1849 in Leighlin Bridge. They came to America to Ohio around 1850. We believe that Bridget may be the daughter of Patrick and Mary Kavanagh. John, we believe is the son of Hugh and Alicia Corcoran who are buried in Leighlin Bridge. Any help would be appreciated.

My G-Grandfather, Michael Doyle was born at Ballykealy in 1816, son of Michael and Mary Dowling/Doolin. He married Mary Conroy, of Ballymogue, at Ballon, in 1843. Michael and Mary, with son, Michael, emigrated to America in 1846, settled first in New Jersey and in 1850 moved to Winchester, Illinois. Two of Michael's brothers, James and Hugh emigrated about 1849 to New York and settled in Westminster, Maryland. I can account for most of the descendants of Michael and Mary, but have lost the trail on the Maryland branches. At least one sister, Mary Katherine, also emigrated, and settled in Winchester after marrying Francis O'Brien. A brother, Yhomas remained at Ballykealy and died there in 1869. Michael's other three brothers and two sisters are not accounted for at all.


DOYLE of Ballykealy Townland near Ballon.
CONROY of Ballymogue Townland near Ballon.  Mary Conroy married Michael Doyle at Ballon in 1843.

Patrick Dunne marr. Catherine Roach/Roche sometime 1830-1833 in Bunclody, Newtownbarry, Carlow... they immigrated to Canada, Smith Falls, Lanark County, Ontario sometime in the late 1840's. they had 6
children I know of:
Thomas, 1834
Patrick, 1837
James, 1840
Michael, 1843
Margaret, 1845
Ann, 1847
Patrick died in 1850 according to an obit of one of his sons.. was when his mother Catherine moved the family to Wellington County, Burrell Line, Peel Township...
Anyone else looking at this family?


My surnames are as follows:
DARCY--Rathneegerath, Drumfea, Knockadrane, Myshall R.C. parish
MURPHY--the same
HOLMES--the same
BYRNE--the same
These four families intermarried during the early 19th century and the lines become quite confused. My ancestors, Murt Darcy & Catharine Murphy, were married in Myshall R.C. Church (probably Drumfea Chapel) in 1835 per parish record.
Darcy females married into the Holmes and Byrne lines, about the same time.

Tom Reed reporting in from New Castle, Delaware, USA. Still working on DARCY and MURPHY, but am also chasing collateral STAPLETON relatives as well. Query: the surname "D'arcy" doesn't show up on the 17th century list of original Carlow landholders - could it be that the Darcy family groups moved to Carlow sometime after Cromwell confiscated all the land from another county, say Kilkenny, Wicklow or Wexford there the surname is quite common.
Please note my E-mail address change;
