Ainsworth KAVANAGH / CAVENAGH family of Ballinree, Carlow, Ireland
« on: Saturday 06 May 17 12:36 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any additional information on Ainsworth Kavanagh (c. 1803 1869) of Knocklonagad, Ballinree, Carlow Ireland, his siblings / parents / ancestors.

He was the son of a William Kavanagh (for whom I have no further information) and was a 'small farmer' and policeman.

He married Maria Doyle (1819 1900), daughter of Matthew Doyle, in 1855 and had the following children (and possibly others):
Possibly Isabella (c. 1857 1889), address Ballinree
Emily Maria (1864 ?), address Boris
Possibly William Charles (1860 1861), address Ballinree
John (c. 1856 ?) married Mary Ann Rigley in 1904, farmer at Knocklonagad
Thomas (c. 1857 ?) listed as an 'imbecile' on the 1901 census

He had a sister Isabella Kavanagh (c. 1808 1873), who married Joseph James (c. 1805 c. 1845) in about 1832 and had the following children:
Elizabeth (bap. 1833) Catholic baptism
John (bap. 1835) Catholic baptism
William (bap. 1837 1896) Catholic baptism
Thomas (bap. 1839) Catholic baptism
Isabella (bap. 1842) COI baptism, address Ballinree
Joseph (bap. 1844) COI baptism, address Ballinree
And later married Timothy Cahill (c. 1810 ?) of Ballinree in 1847, who fathered:
Sarah Anne (1847 ?)

There was a Johana Cavanagh who was a witness at Ainsworth's marriage, relationship unclear. Possibly mother or sister.

The name Ainsworth is uncommon, and was passed down to sister Isabella's grandson and great-grandson, so may have been Ainsworth's mother's or grandmother's surname.

Any further information would be greatly appreciated! Isabella, his sister, was my 3rd great grandmother and I would love to trace their parents.

Thanks, Jo

hi 'rathmore' and barb

thanks for the suggestions...

barb, i have been through the JAMES threads, and have as much information as i can find there.

'rathmore', i have the information for Ainsworth KAVANAGH / CAVANAGH from familysearch.org regarding marriage, birth of daughter and death, as well as griffith's valuation / land but am missing his birth record or information on his parents (other than that his father was a William KAVANAGH / CAVANAGH there are a few possibilities) and any info. on other siblings... it would be particularly good to discover his mother's name.

kind regards, jo

hi barb

thanks for that.

yes, i had found that particular William KAVANAGH and his wife Anne. they baptised five (possibly six) children in Rathvilly between 1799 and 1810, but sadly no Ainsworth or Isabella among them. so, although they remain a possibility as parents of Ainsworth, i have no tangible link...

the search continues!
