Hi,
My husband is from the Purcell family and i have been doing some research over the years.  Reading these posts I can't seem to fit anyone in but here goes.

Furthest back i can go is a church marriage record for Philip Purcell address Blackwood marries Mary Cahill on 24/09/1832 in the parish/district Lisdowney County Kilkenny. Age and parents names not recorded.  2 witnesses - John Dunne and Anastasia (Ansty) Walsh.

I also found the following children they had

Judith - date of baptism 18/9/1833 address Freshford Co Kilkenny Sponsor/informant Oliver Blanchfield and Mary Purcell.

John - date of baptism 19/5/1835 address Freshford Co Kilkenny Sponsor/informant Andrew Maher and Bridget Malone.

Bridget -  date of baptism 14/2/1837 address Freshford Co Kilkenny Sponsor/informant Patrick Blansfield and Bridget Delahunty.

Margaret - date of baptism 02/06/1838 address Freshford Co Kilkenny Sponsor/informant Edmund Purcell and Mary Blansfield.

Patrick - date of baptism 15/12/1840 address Freshford Co Kilkenny Sponsor/Informant Daniel Healey and Bridget Maher.

My husband's line was from John Purcell. He married Annie Gray in Glasgow 31/12/1864. They regularly went back and forward to Dublin as they had 2 children born there Mary Katherine in 1866 and William Patrick Allen in 16/2/1868. 3 more were born in Glasgow.

There seems to be no information on the brothers and sisters of John. I was fearing the worst and that they had suffered in the famine. I think they must have moved to Dublin at some point as that's where they went back to on visits. It's heartening to hear that some may have went to Australia or New Zealand.

Hope this helps someone!
