kearney's of ennistymon
« on: Thursday 07 August 08 18:59 BST (UK) »
hi,
im looking for any information that anyone could give me about the kearney family listed on the 1901 census in ennistymon

john kearney born about 1872
kate o'halloran born abt 1875

they had 13 children in all (not all listed on the census)
 Patrick Kearney Abt. 1896
Mary Kearney b 22 Feb 1896
Martin Kearney Abt. 1898
Bridget Kearney Abt. 1900
Norah Kearney 20 Jun 1907

all these children are unknown birthdates
Ann Mary Kearney
Christopher Kearney
Eileen Kearney
Elizabeth Kearney
Kate Kearney
Kathleen Kearney
Magaret Kearney
Martha Kearney

Norah Kearney b 20 Jun 1907 was my grandmother , she left ireland in the 20's and married a charles blackwell in surrey in 1933
unforunately the above is all i know about her family.
it would be great if i could find out anymore. if anyone could give me any pointers to where i could start looking would be great as im havent looked into any irish relatives before .
thanks

I'll have a look in the Slaters Trade directories later on... and let you know what I find.

Do you know any occupation or address details ?

thanks shane,
i dont know what slaters includes but john is listed as a ag lab on the census living with his brother in law michael o'halloran (also a aglab) they are listed on this page of the census living in kilfernora
http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/genealogy/1901census/kilfenora_ded_kilfenora_town49_21.htm


unfortunately this is all i have on the family , ive been a bit wary of applying for my nans birth cert as although we all knew her as norah , i know when she applied for a passport she had some hassle as they didnt not have anyone of that name and said her name was something like honara? which she herself took great umbrage to . so i dont even know what her real registered name was.

Slaters is an equivalent to todays yellow pages - mainly concentrates on Gentry, Shops, Businesses and the larger farmers.

from Slaters 1881 :

Kearney Patrick, Ennistymon - Grocer
Kearney Patrick, Ennistymon  - PUBLIC HOUSE.

no - O'Halloran's listed

Slaters : 1894

Kearney Patrick, grocer & publican

no - O'Halloran's listed
(no farmers listed for Ennistymon)

It seems the alternate spelling is Carney and both names are common in Clare on Griffiths valuation with about 70 listed. This would only include people who leased or owned land, which may not apply to a young Ag. Lab.

1855 - Parish of KILMANAHEEN

Connor Carney, Leased a House from Denis Rowan on 'Lane off Church Hill St, Ennistymon"

Mary Carney, Leased a house from Frances Tobin in Deerpark West (near Ennistymon)


I'll have another look in the directories under the Carney spelling later on...

It should be possible to guesstimate  the year of marriage for John and Kate - if they are both 26 and the eldest child in the house is 6 then presumably their marriage would be around 1894?

GRO Dublin should have that... and since you know both surnames you would be sure of a match.

I'm based in Dublin, with recent roots here, further back my connections are Dublin City & North County and Co. Wicklow as well as Yorkshire & Cambridgeshire. One couple in my tree lived & married in Offaly/Kings County which is much closer to Clare.

Hi there. My grandfather bought my house from the Kearney's back in the early 1900s. There are two houses, still standing, which were used by the Kearneys as a "hotel" and pub. I'e been in contact with another descendant Byford Lee (I think) and his sister in recent years. Contact me only at (*)

Cheers
