Staunton Family Castlebar
« on: Friday 08 August 14 19:54 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I am looking for information on the Staunton family of Manulla, Castlebar, Co. Mayo.  I really do not know much about them, other than my Great-Grandfather Ulick Staunton moved to Lurgan, N. Ireland at the time of Partition.  He was a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary, and was offered unemployment or a place in the Royal Ulster Constabulary at Partition.

I think his father was William Staunton.  I'd love to know more about them.  About the land they lived on, what it was worth, who else was in the family etc.

Hi Holly,

Have you looked at the Irish Census   http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie

I found him in 1911 and suspect that there may be a mistranscription for 1901 but you will be able to trace the family in 1901.

In fact, he may be entered as Julia, a daughter in 1901  ??? :-\

The various images can tell you a bit more information.

If you need any help, we are here  :)

These are also useful sites:
Irish BMD indexes  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1408347

Some births and baptisms are also on FS.  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1584963

And  some marriages https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1584964

The latter two are not comprehensive.  There are other pay sites.

There are also census entries for James and Maria Staunton, Manulla who may be your William's parents. Their oldest son is James.

Griffiths Valuation ( about 1850s) shows Staunton in Manulla. This would show any land he farmed and who owned it.   http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/index.xml?action=placeSearch

Dear Holly

I see you posted this ages ago.  So, I am sorry I missed this post from you.  By now, no doubt you will have looked at the national archives.

I know the spelling changed sometimes from Stanton to Staunton.  This affected our family research. We have a ulick staunton, manulla in our family.
