Richard & Elizabeth had a number of children they were Michael, Mary, John, Richard and Ellen. As I mentioned at the beginning, it's Richard the father's origins that I am interested in finding out about. This refers to the period prior to 1840 when his father William signed the lease for the smallholding at Ovidstown. In that year Richard would have been about 6 years old.

As you can see Michael & Mary were brother and sister and the possible godparents of John.

Michael Connolly was a son of Richard |Connolly and he married Mary Ellis in the Star of the Sea Church Sandymount on 1 July 1878. He was my grandfather and they had 16 children, not all of whom survived childhood. Shiraz

Hi Dathai
I think they may have been brother and sister to John. I have Michael listed as being born 1854 and Mary 1859 as children of Richard & Elizabeth Connolly.

Aghadowney:
Richard was R.C. Family folklore suggests that prior to moving to Ovidstown, they may have lived in the Monasterevan area of Kildare. But I have never been able to verify that information.

Kildare / Richard Connolly
« on: Monday 08 October 18 15:37 BST (UK)  »
Richard Connolly was my great-grandfather who died in the South Dublin Union on 2 December1910. he was pre-deceased by his wife Elizabeth (Bowen). He was aged 76 when he died, which would make his year of birth 1834. My problem is I can only trace his father (William) and family back to a lease on a small-holding in Ovidstown Co. Kildare, which was signed in 1840. The landlord of the property was Nathaniel Barton of Barberstown Castle. Any ideas on how I could trace the family before 1840 and possibly where Richard was born? He would appear to have been 6 years old when the 1840 lease was signed.

United States of America / Seery Family in America & Canada

I would like to contact descendants of Daniel Seery (born in Dublin Ireland) who lived at one time at East Islip on Long Island but passed away some years ago. He was married to an English lady called Agnes (?) who predeceased him. Before retiring he worked for a paint company for many years. I think they had 4/5 children.

Similarly. I would like to contact descendants of Walter Seery (born in Dublin Ireland) who also emigrated to Canada. He lived in Montreal and worked all his working life for a brewery initially as a blacksmith and later did general metalwork and maintenance. He was married to a lady called Corinne (?) and they had four/five children.

Kildare / Re: Celbridge Workhouse County Kildare

Thanks Sinaan for your quick response.  I'm trying to track down the whereabouts of my great,great grandmother. With her son Martin Connolly they were tenants of Major Hugh Barton of Straffan House on a small holding in Ovidstown. In 1883 they were evicted from the smallholding, this despite Gladstone's act of 1880. Family folklore says the mother was ill and was taken in by relatives, but I can't find any trace of her and I think 'taken in by relatives' might be a euphemism for the workhouse. The son Martin is said to have moved to Mullingar, but then again I have failed to find him or his mother. As I live in South Africa it hasn't been an easy quest to locate my ancestors. Shiraz.
