Clynch and Clinch Clonegal 1840 help
« on: Wednesday 25 January 17 02:58 GMT (UK) »
The bicentenary publication, Clonegal 1798, tells of the Clynches dwelling where William Carroll's family (1798) lived and where Paddy Kirwan presently (1998) resides.
I know that Mary Clynch born 1816, William 1820, John 1823 and James 1826 immigrated to Iowa USA by 1850, and these siblings had a brother who remained in Ireland. A family letter tells of the brother visiting from Ireland in the 1920's and dying shortly after returning to Ireland. The gravestone for John Clynch at Riley Ridge Iowa,notes "Cloneigal" next to his birth year.
Anyone able to connect these two Clynch Families? The same bicentenary publication mentions George Clinch (1798), a relative of Fr. Thomas Clinch, living at Cranemore. Anyone able to connect George Clinch and the Clynches of Carroll/Kirwan land?

Index of names from Clonegal in 1798 has- George Clinch of Cranemore, Fr Thomas Clinch and Clynches of Kilcarry.

A William Clinch (age 38) of Kilcarry in 1901 with sister Kate (age 35), a nephew & 2 servants-

Still there in 1911 with 3 servants-

Possibly George Clinch's widow in 1911- Anne Clynch (age 75) with 2 sons in Ballinvalley townland-

1901 census widow Anne transcribed as age 45 but original looks more like 65!

If a brother of Mary, William, John and James visited America in 1900s there should be outgoing and incoming passenger records (think both Ancestry and Find My Past might have them cvovering c1890-c1960), you can search the 1901 and 1911 census and also the death registrations.

hello aghadowey,
thankyou for your speedy response. I am slowly gathering information from Ireland and at the same time attempting to gather information on the movement of clinch and clynch and glynch families in the usa.
to date, I have been unable to trace my irish ancestor born at new York in 1852 to his family in Ireland. There are still too many missing pieces in the puzzle.
your links are most helpful as I am rather new to this pursuit.
I can track the clynch family of the state of Iowa USA to Carlow, but cannot connect how the Iowa family might be related to mine. I know that my grandfather was born in 1882 on a farm next to the Iowa Clynch brothers. No one in this country knows what the kinship was, if there was one. the search continues.

Have you traced all the Iowa Clynches, contacted any living descendants? traced land transfers and Wills? Checked local histories, newspaper obituaries, etc.?

If you use the Search box and input 'Clinch' and also use other words such as Wexford, Kilrush, Camolin, Wales, you will find a lot on Clinches already. You will find that 1798 Clinches of Clonegal connected to Kilrush, Camolin and Wales Clinches. I saw some burials in Ferns graveyard also.

See this link provided by another person here:

Same Clinch Family discussed on this link...... cheers j
