Hi Michael, I haven't been able to reply privately but I'd love to keep in touch. You can get in contact via Removed. Would love to share info and family stories but generally just connect if I ever make it to Scotland and Ireland. Hope all is well, Aaron

Hi there, I have a ydna test at familytreedna, and am about to receive my autosomal test from ancestry. I only have the same ancestral tree on there. If you’d like to know more about the tree I’m always happy to trade research. I’ve done heaps and spent lots of money on buying records at rootsireland and scotlandspeople. Let us know what branch your from at least. Thanks.

Does anyone know where Tullahurk, Leitrim was? Must have been near Kinlough. Perhaps there's others related to him out there... All I found so far was this reference in a school record of “Paddy’s Lane” in Tullahurk (

Looking for family of John Clancy who married Elizabeth on 26 Nov 1896 at Kinlough RC Church. Witnesses William Gallagher & Bridget Gellespee.

John Baptised on 16 Nov 1848, son of Peter & Kitty McGowan, resident of Tullahurk, Leitrim, at Kinlough RC, who married 8 Feb 1847 at Kinlough RC. Wedding Witnesses: Thady Clancy and John McGowan.

Siblings: Catherine Bapt 1854 and Elizabeth Bapt 1859 at Kinlough RC.

John Died 17 Mar 1920, age 72 in Derryherk, informant Elizabeth, widow of John. John was denied a Pension from Jan 1909 - Nov 1911 on the grounds that his age couldn’t be confirmed in 1841 Census with parents. John was a Farmer & Carpenter.

A Peter Clancy (&Co) in Tithe Applotments (1823-37) on small farm in Drumachrin, Clogher, Innismacsaint near Ballyshannon could be his father.

Thought I'd add my place in this family tree for those interested. My great great grandad was Charles Peter Clancy who came to New Zealand in 1911 from Anderston, Glasgow with wife Jane Whyte (m1906). He was a Barman and got his first job here in Christchurch with his uncle John O'Neil at the Grosvenor Hotel. His son George Clancy (b1909,d1983), a Salesman & Caretaker and wife Mavis Ellen Cambridge (m1927) had child Ross Frederick Clancy (b1929, d2000). Ross was a Postal Officer, Singer & Sax player who married Nola Ruth Lawton (1952) and had 2 Children, one of who was my father Donald John Clancy (b1955, d1990). Don was Manager of the first Courier company in NZ and died in a vehicle accident in Rotorua, New Zealand.

So your a Clancy descended from the line on William's! Well that is just fantastic! I have hoped to get in touch with the branch of family that stayed in Glasgow one day. This photo is from William John Clancy's Navy record off Scotlands People. I found much of the family on this website but I struggled with finding more recent family. Thanks for the info and help finding more on your family.

What a gift thanks, have been hoping to find out more about your branch, and to see the home on the Loch that our ancesters lived in!!! I had Maria Wootton (nee Clancy) the author of "Historical notes on the ancient sept of Clancy/Glancy (MacFhlannchadha) of Dartry" helping me with your branch. She was the one who found Elizabeth Clancy, as I could never find her baptism at the family Catholic Church in Kinlough. Once I tracked the family land in the Griffiths Valuation she helped me find records of the home ownership. I'd hoped that Edward John and Peter Joseph hadn't died in WWI/WWII, do you know what happeded to Peter's brother Edward? I have attached all I know so far on your branch before meeting you. Where do you live now and is it near your Clancy family? Looking forward to hearing more and having someone to help locally  ;D

Got some old Kabristan Archives books for Leitrim:
There's a Bernard Harte in Kinlough Cemetery. At Killenora RC Cemetery there's Dominick Harte of Muleen in memory of his brothers Martin (died 28 Dec 1871, age 23) & James (died 7 Jul 1873, age 30). Also ? Harte (died 26 May 1865) but apparently the rest is illegible. At Rossinver RC Abbey your ancestor Peter Harte of Raheelin died 6 Nov 1904, age 67 (no mention of wife sorry). At Newtown Manor Carrick Temple RC Graveyard there's a memorial erected by James Harte in memory of his daughter Mary (died 1 Jun 1860, age 2), his wife Jane & their sons John, James, Bernard, Patrick & daughter Mary K. Also John Harte of Banagher who died 4 Jul 1945 & wife Anne who died 7 Aug 1932.

Slight update on Irish roots: Daughter of Peter & Bridget was Elizabeth Clancy who married John Clancy 26 Nov 1896 at Kinlough RC, the son of Peter Clancy & Kitty McGowan most likely in a desperate bid to keep the family farm in the Clancy name. John first took ownership of the 4.3 Ha Clancy property with a house on the banks of Loch Melvin in Derryherk. When John died 17 Mar 1920, age 72 in Derryherk the farm was in Elizabeth's possession and changed hands to Charles Kerrigan on 13 Jun 1928 and in 1957 to Thomas Kelly who turned the old house into an Office. Records are scarce around so recent of such events so if anyone in Ireland could help we would be excited to get in touch with any family in Ireland and around the world. This information would not have been possible without the help of Maria Wootton (nee Clancy), author of Historical Notes on the Ancient Sept of Clancy/Glancy.
