Hi there

My mother Mary Kate Gibbons was born in Ballyart in 1930.

My grandparents Patrick Gibbons and Bridget Kerins were married in 1925.

There were 3 Gibbons families in Ballyart in the Griffiths Valuation of 1857 and we assume they were all related as the houses were very close to each other. The houses in Griffiths were headed by Tobias, Pat and Michael Gibbons.

Tobias - This house is a combination of Gibbons / Burke in both censuses through marriage.

Pat - This house became Carney by the censuses through marriage.

Michael - My great great grandfather who with his wife Julia had 2 children that we know of. Anthony ( my great grandfather ) who married Mary Walsh from Curelaim / Toormore East and Mary who married Mick McHugh from Carrowkeel.

We know that the Tolan family from Rockfield, Turlough descend from another Michael Gibbons who left Ballyart in 1860, and there are Gibbons in Ballynew with Ballyart ancestry. All the Gibbons in Upper and Lower Cashel in the censuses are also believed to have come from Ballyart.

There were also Patrick, Ellen and Mary Gibbons from Ballyart who descended from yet another Michael Gibbons who emigrated to the USA in the mid 1800s. Patrick and Ellen were in Alton,Illinois and Mary was in Quebec, Canada and Rochester, NY.

Ive been in contact with Castlebar library and there are no records which can link the families.

I know its a long shot but I would be grateful if anyone has any information which could link the Ballyart Gibbons families.


Thank you

Brendan O'Connor

My Uncle Tom Gibbons ( London ) remembers Fred when he was a postman delivering the mail to Ballyart. He says we are not related but I'm sure there would be a link a few generations back !

My great grandfathers sister Mary Gibbons from Ballyart married Michael McHugh from Carrowkeel on 8 February 1877. Michaels father was Mark McHugh. They are the only McHugh house in Toormore East in both censuses. Any relation ?!
