Looking for Doyle Researchers in Kilkenny
« on: Thursday 02 February 12 17:26 GMT (UK) »
Hi

My ancestor Bridget Doyle was born in Kilkenny in 1816, I believe her to be the daughter of Matthew Doyle and Bridget Walsh who married in Kilkenny in 1815. I would be interested in making contact with any other Doyle researchers who might have links with this family.

Many thanks

David ;)

Does anyone have a Doyle family who may have lived in Graig-na-managh or Brandondale in the mid 1800s?  I have a Maria Doyle who ended up in Canada as the (possibly common-law) wife of Archdall Burtchaell, and no record of her previous existence in Ireland.  She probably would have been born around 1835.

Hello!

     I too am searching for my Doyle ancestors in Kilkenny. My 3rd Great Grandfather was Thomas Doyle born in Thomastown circa 1815. He was Catholic and immigrated to Prince Edward Island about 1840 where he married and my GG Grandfather Andrew Doyle was born in 1845. I have done some DNA testing which has lead me to other Doyle descendants from Kilkenny but I have yet to find any information regarding Thomas. Has anyone had any luck contacting the Catholic Parishes in Kilkenny? I do know that circa 1830 there was a Catholic Priest Martin Doyle and Bishop James Doyle who organized the resistance during the Tithe War but not much else regarding the Doyle Family.

Thanks in Advance for any insights  :)

Hi,

The Kilkenny Doyle's, of which I am one, are not easy to match together.  My roots are in Thomastown/New Ross as apparently the Doyle's of mid 1800's and before used the River Nore to do buisiness. My GG-GF was Patrick Doyle who married Maria Fleming about 1840.  I suspect that his father was James Doyle who married Elizabeth Layhy (Leahy) from Kilkenny City about 1800.  These Doyle's were farmers but, as far as I can detect, also had boats/barges with the Forrestals operating between Waterford and Kilkenny cities and up the River Barrow also.

Some of these Doyle's became priests and/or nuns and I'd wager many were involved involved in the land struggles or poor relief. Other Doyle's were into ships and one a Captain Thomas Doyle (the bishop's 'JKL' half brother, Rev. Martin Doyle was the bishop's first cousin) had a son Captain James Doyle who also went to PEI and had some schooners operating between Canada and the USA.

I have also had my DNA tested by Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) and belong to the Y-DNA R-M269 haplogroup.

If any of this is of interest please contact me.
