Delany / Delaney of Cork and Kerry
« on: Thursday 21 August 14 14:32 BST (UK) »
My ggg grandfather Mathew Browne married a Margaret Delaney in St Peters, Dublin.  The Irish church records site had given me the date of 21st Nov 1841, but today I found that it was in October, not November that they married:

[Dublin Evening Mail, 22nd Oct 1841] October 21, at St Peter's Church, by the Rev. B. C. Browne, Matthew Browne, of the city of Dublin, Esq., to Margarette, daughter of Matthew Delaney, of the county of Cork, Esq., deceased, and grand-niece of the late P. Delaney, Esq., of Glengariffe, and of Castle Lough, Killarney.

I’m completely new to this Delany family.  I’m interested if anyone has any connections.  Who was Matthew Delany of Co. Cork?  Who was “P. Delaney of Glengariffe, and of Castle Lough, Killarney” and why did he deserve special mention?  Does anyone know anything about Castle Lough or Glengariffe?

Thanks

Some progress at last!

It appears that a Patrick Delany of Glengariff was married to a Mary Lawlor whose father was Dr. James Lawlor of Castlelough, Killarney.  Therefore I think this pair are probably the parents of “P. Delaney, Esq.” and grandparents of my gggg grandfather Matthew Delaney.

Deed dated 25th Apr 1772 between 1st Henry Sheared of Cork City, 2nd James Lawlor of Killarney, Co Kerry, Esq., son of James Lawlor late of Castlelough, doctor in physick, 3rd Mary Delany of Killarney, widow and sole acting executor of the said Dr James Lawlor.

Will index:
Delany - Mary - Castlelough, Co Kerry – 1816

According to Illustrations of the Scenery of Killarney, “the name of Castle-lough is at present given to a neat little villa belonging to Mrs. Delany, the grounds of which are prettily disposed.”  A Mrs Delaney was also apparently responsible for building Grenagh House west of Killarney in 1792.  I think this is one and the same person because both properties were later owned by Denis Shine Lawlor, probably another descendant of Dr. James Lawlor.

I would really love to find another record to put a date to Mary’s death.  Unfortunately I don’t think her will survives.  However, a death notice might confirm she was the widow of Patrick Delany and with any luck might mention other connections.

Hi Hallmark,

Yup, according to Burke’s, Denis Shine Lawlor of Castlelough and Grenagh House (born 1808) was the son of Denis Shine and Ellen Lawlor, daughter of Martin Lawlor of Killarney.  Presumably he took the name Lawlor as part of a condition in someone’s will to inherit the Lawlor properties.

Two of his daughters married O’Connells.  Isabella Ellen married Daniel O’Connell (grandson of the Daniel O’Connell) and Frances Mary married Daniel James O’Connell (son of Sir James O’Connell, and nephew of the Daniel O’Connell).

I haven’t found anything yet to indicate who Martin Lawlor’s parents were, but I’m guessing he was a grandson or nephew of Dr. James Lawlor of Killarney.
