Sutherland / Mackay Mackenzie family
« on: Sunday 25 March 12 23:34 BST (UK)  »
I would like to discover any information about this family.
They are in 1901 Census Ireland in Myrtle Hill Terrace Cork City.

Robert Mackay MacKenzie, Wife: Abigail, Sons, Robert , Alexander Thompson
John Kelly, Daughter Kathleen Ann
Robert senior occupation given as Commercial Traveller. I would like to discover what brought them to Cork at this time, they lived in a very large house & owned it, so I am inclined to think Robert may have been a merchant of some sort.

I have found their burial plots in St Finbarres Cemetery.  I am researching for their great grand-daughter whose grandfather was an older son James (didnt live in Ireland) the family had no idea that Robert & family lived in Ireland

The family originated in Iverness, Scotland & Abigails maiden name was Macausland.

By what route would the family have travelled to Ireland in late 1800's?  Are there any records to be sourced for Travel or occupation of Father.

Hope someone is able to assist me, have been able to obtain lots of information but just the few unanswered items I would like to discover.

Thank you

I am researching the MacKenzie family (originally Scottish presbyterian) and have found them 1901/1911 census in Myrtle Hill Terrace, Cork City.
Their daughter Kathleen Ann the only child of the family to be born in Ireland married a Victor Blundell in 1914.  They lived in Midleton and had 2 daughters, Patricia Clare & Sheila Blundell.
Victor Blundell died in 1935 and I have "hit a brick wall" regarding his wife Kathleen, cannot locate her. Have found Victors burial place but Kathleen not interred there.

Any suggestions would be welcome as to where I might look to locate her after 1935.
Thank you.

Hi, thank you for your interest.  I think I must have all avenues explored at this point.  Have looked either side of 1877 date, also checked with GRO office Roscommon and Cork BMD office - no result.  Seems like David has disappeared off the radar.  I abandon the search but keep going back hoping I will come across something. So difficult when one goes back so far and records so sparce but cannot understand that the rest of the family Baptism records are available and he being the youngest and within Civil Reg is not available.

Best regards

I am trying to help his grand nephew research the family.  He has no information other than he was told he died in the War.
Will try your suggestion and look at deaths maybe this might throw up something.
Thanks again.  Had thought the WW2 records would not be available yet.

Hi, thank you for your reply.  The parents for the Maurice on the link you gave are incorrect.
Do you know if there are any records for WW2 soldier enlistments etc on any site.

I have David Cotter on 1901 Census age 24yrs. Parents Maurice Cotter & Elizabeth Geary in Midleton.
There are baptism records for his siblings, none for David & no Civil Birth Cert.
He has disappeared after 1901 census as have searched All Ireland in 1911 & no trace.
Have also searched immigration to USA - while there were a couple of Davids from Midleton, none with the above parents.
Would welcome any suggestions on where I might now go as after close on 10 years I think I have possibly exhausted most sources.  Thanks

Thanks for reply. Think the family source must have this information wrong.  I had also searched the CGC. Thanks again for your help.

Thank you Shane for your reply. Have searched IFH - no luck. Also church records in Cloyne parish. Have also done all ireland search -no luck either.
The lady of the Braham family told me there was a story in the family that they came from Scotland and were in Limerick firstly before Cloyne.  Have searched Ancestry and other sites again with no result.

Hi, the graveyard for Leamlara is Lisgoold. It is situated centre ways between Lisgoold & Leamlara.
There is a website for the parishes this has a link to transcriptions for the local graveyards.

Were your family that ran the Post Office named Kelleher? My husband is a native of Leamlara and the last postmistress there was Kitty Sweeney (Kelleher).

Best regards
