Sealy Family, County Cork, Ireland
« on: Tuesday 22 January 13 02:35 GMT (UK) »
Any one researching the Sealy Family in County Cork? Would like to exchange ideas and information.
Some issues: what is relationship of the Sealy family in County Cork and the Sealy family in County Kerry? Do they both spring from the "original" migrant Sealy from Somerset about 1620? Who migrated from Cork to eastern Canada about 1830 and started that branch of family (there is a complete genealogy of these eastern Canadian Sealy's on the internet but the original migrant is not completely identified)? Who are the ancestors of Samuel Sealy of Kerry who married into the Cork Sealy family? Seems to be indications that a branch of the Cork Sealy family converted to the Roman Catholic religion in the mid-1800's, but who? Other than in Ireland, are the parish registers for the Church of Ireland in Bandon, County Cork and surrounding parishes available for study? Does the LDS church have them in Salt Lake City? Who are the parents of Arthur Sealy, Esq of
Lishheenbawn, Castle Island, County Cork (list in an index in 1846)? I have extracted all the information I can out of Ancestry.co.uk and now wonder if there is another pay site that is worth spending money on for Irish Sealy information.

All comments and/or suggestions welcome.

Mary Agnes Hickson's book Selection from Old Kerry Records 1872-74 mentions the Sealys of Cork and Kerry. She refers to the will of Alderman John Sealy Mayor of Cork   proved 6 July 1701 leaving his property at Croker in Wineaton Somersetshire  to his grand-nephew Samuel Sealy.
Edenburn in Kerry - now a nursing home - was "once the seat of the Sealy family .. later occupied by Samuel Murray Hussey"
There's quite a lot more but I have to rush out now - will post more tomorrow.

Hickson's book is available on line just google the title.
Also Jeremiah King in his book- County Kerry past and present - has a short section on the Sealy family of Kerry. Itís available online at askaboutireland .ie

This is some Bandon stuff on this site http://www.bandon-genealogy.com/ including link to marriages on right hand side of the page. Some references to Sealys there.

My wife's mother's surname was Sealy and her grand father was Richard Sealy who came from Dingle. He was down in the 1911 census as 80 years and living in John Street, Dingle. His father was William Sealy and mother maiden name was Catherine McMahon. They were down on there marriage certificate as living in Milltown, Dingle. William was in the 96th Foot regiment in the British Army from 1804 to 1818. We think he came from Bandon in Cork

PM sent. Your wife and I appear to be related. Most of Richard Sealy's children - with wife Catherine Berry - emigrated and ended up in the area around Joliet, Illinois.
