Hi,
I've done some research and have deduces that infact your Kate and Samuel, are v probably children of Samuel Burchill and Mary Driscoll, my great great grand parents. Their younger son Michael ( my great granddad) inherited the farm, which is still in the family

I think that the timing might be out by about ten years but do any of you have a record of Samuel Burchill marrying an O'Leary or Leary from Bawnishal in Castlehaven. I don't have a first name but I think that she was born around 1860 so probably too old. I know that this Samuel Burchill came from around Skibbereen but I don't know the townland

I am also related to the Burchills in Skib.
To be fair it's such a small population and until late such big families that I seem to be related to more there than in the UK.
It is a wonderful place full of fantastic people.

I see an Abraham Burchill mentioned here. I have just noticed that when my grand-aunt was baptised in Castlehaven Church in 1878, one of the sponsors was an Abraham Burchill. Also when my grand-aunt's sister was baptised two years later, one of her sponsors was a Mary-Anne Burchill. I must dig a bit deeper.

I think that the Abraham Burchill being mentioned in this thread from Gorteenalomane married a Honorah Leary. If I am correct, does anybody know where she came from. My information by hearsay was that my great grandfather's sister (whose name I do not know) married a Sam Burchill.
However when I look at the baptism records for the children of Abraham and Norah, the sponsors match my family members. Just wondering if my information was wrong and Norah might be my great-grandfather's sister

The Kate Burchill to whom you refer was born in 1860, the first child of Abraham Burchill & Honora O'Leary.   She had 5 sisters & 2 brothers.  3 of them went to the US in 1901, Mary, Ellen & Abraham.
There were 4 others born, Eliza, Johanna, Hanora & Samuel.  Hanora was the last of the family to live in Gorteenalomane.

My Greatgrandmother was Eliza Burchill, sister of Abraham Senior who married Honora o'Leary.
