1881 Census Lookup, County Lettrim
« on: Tuesday 06 July 04 02:18 BST (UK) »
Hello, I'm researching some Doyle's and O'Rourke's from County Leitrim, in the mid to late 1800's.  I have found them in the 1901 census, but have been unable to find them listed elsewhere.  If anyone could provide any assistence, I would be very greatful.  

Below is the family I'm looking for.  I listed there estimated birth years if known.

John Doyle (unknown) married to an Esther O'Rourke (1850?)

Children:
    Mary Ann 1873
    Michael 1874
    Bridget 1875
    Patrick 1880
    Bernard 1882
    Ella 1885
    Catherine 1886
    Elizabeth 1887
    John 1894 (possible 1889?)
    Margaret  1893
    Sarah 1894
    James (unknown)

For those of you who might be looking into other surnames from county Leitrim, I am also researching two other surnames (Fox and McGovern) from around this time.

Thanks, Jim   :)
Sanders (Connecticut, USA, originally from London area, England [Henry L. Sanders & Barbara Ann Warwick])
Laurie (Connecticut, USA, originally from Scotland [John Douglas Laurie & Nicholas Martin])
Fox (Connecticut, USA, originally from County Leitrim, Ireland [Patrick Fox & Mary McGovern] )
Doyle (Connecticut, USA, originally from County Leitrim, Ireland [John Doyle & Esther O'Rourke])

Hiya Jim,

How are you progressing with your search for the Doyle's and O'Rourke's? I presume you may know by now
that there is not an 1881 Irish Census. Have you found the townland or townlands where these families lived?

Hi Jim

I don't suppose your Fox's and McGovern's were from Halls, Cloone parish?

Have just seen your message.
My paternal grandmother was Mary Mc Govern,born 1885.
Her father was Hugh & his father was James.
James & Hugh were from the Inishmagrath Parish,townland of Tullyclevaun,Co.Leitrim.
Nearest village Dowra.
My grandmother was born  just across the county boundary in Co.Cavan
I know of 2 sisters of Hugh,Margaret & Fanny.
There may have been 2 others.
Do you have an area for yours.
