Jordans of Kilbride / Clara around 1811
« on: Wednesday 27 December 17 05:35 GMT (UK) »
I've traced my ancestry to Thomas Jordan born 23 December 1811 from Kilbride, Kings county.  Date and location from his army records - signed on to 69th Regiment at Athlone in Sept 1829 and served until medical discharge in 1851 , then settled back in Offaly.). I have lots of info from military records but can't locate any other siblings or parents. His occupation at 17 was noted as tailor.  Would love to find more about Jordans in this area.....

Hi Bclc71,

if you check out irishgenealogy.ie (the official government website) and search for Jordan's in the Tullamore Electoral Division you will see a list of names etc.  Some refer to Clara Jordan's. Some resided in Erry, Maryborough and Kilmanaghan as well as Kilbride which are all in the same area.

There is a John Jordan married to Eliza Fitzpatrick, River Street, Clara
Alicia Jordan  D. 16.01.1948 Clara (born approx. 1866)

Henry Jordan B. 1858 - 1878 son of John Jordan (Erry Maryborough)

In addition if you look up the Griffith Evaluation you can see Alicia Jordan is residing in Clara at the time. 

I'm from the area so may be able to provide some local knowledge.

Regards

T

Hi bclc71,

I have the same ancestor. Thomas Jordan was my 4th Great grandfather.

I have some info on him, but there's a Jordan page dedicated to the family, I can't seem to find it. It was called something along the lines of "In search of castles" etc.

What I do know is that Thomas Jordan although was in the army (Regiment: 69th Regt Of Foot; Rank: PRIVATE; Service number: 717, Athlone) and also the 19th Regiment, he was Married in Galway. Find his army record here: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ , Search for "Thomas Jordan 69th" you'll find him as born in Kilbride.

He married on 30 Sep 1844 in Rahoon, County Galway, to Catherine Healy (Hely).
Catherine was born 14 Apr 1825 in Galway to Matthew Healy and Julia O'Brien. Find this info here: https://registers.nli.ie/ , search for St.Nicholas Est & North church it's in there.

Thomas and Catherine had three children: Catherine (1844), Mary Anne (1848-1849, Malta) and my 3rd Great Grandfather, Joseph (1851-1916).

Find this info also on my public tree at Ancestry.co.uk, search for "O'Raw family tree" or my user name: www_danieloraw or try this link: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/tree/151888652/family

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Daniel O'Raw
