Trying to find the following in the online NLI RC parish registers, but a transcription I've seen indicates that a James Kirwick was baptised in Drom parish on 9 December 1827 for parents Patrick Kirwick and Margaret Herke(?), the sponsors were James Kennedy and Judy McGrath.


The above is just a speculative possibility, but just to note that Drom RC parish register transcriptions show other children for parents with names Patrick Kirwick and Margaret Herk/Herke as follows:

- Margaret baptised on 20 January 1813;
- William baptised on 17 May 1816;
- James baptised on 28 February 1822 (presumably died young);
- Andrew baptised on 29  March 1826;
- Judith baptised on 30 November 1833.

There was also a son John (#1?) baptised on 20 December 1829 and a son John (#2?) baptised on  20 December 1830 for parents Patrick Kirby and Margaret Herk, the address was the townland of Rathleasty in both cases:

Griffith's Valuation shows a Patrick Kenrick in Rathleasty, printing date for that locality was 1850.

Hi

Am browsing the following link (Estate Papers) and notice James Kerwick mentioned on Pages 43 and 44 in Grague, Tipperary.  I've only reached Page 44, so he might be mentioned elsewhere.  Anyway, take a look:-

Thank you L.H. for posting this information. I am uncertain what it means at present but will now look at it closer.
Appreciate you taking the time to send me a message.

Hi again

In the 1790-1801 Tithes Book below, there is mention at No. 107 (around Page 20, I think) of John and Patt Kerwick.

See:-

On Page 119, there is also mention of John Kierwick (sic) in - I think - the same townland.   The link is:-
