Somebody thinks they are related to that Michael see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Lawlor-122

Either way it suggests that he is the son of Hugh Lawlor who married Elizabeth Mahony in 1783, not Hugh Lawlor the doctor.

They might well be related but he wasn't a sea captain.

Michael Lawlor 8 Oct 1786-30 March 1824 was my 4x great grandfather, son of Hugh and Eliza(beth).

He had a father Hugh and as far as I have ascertained at this point, also a brother Hugh who was a doctor.

Michael was an army officer who first sailed for Madras on the 'William Pitt' as part of the 10th Regiment of Native Infantry. He fathered a child with probably an Indian bibi and died of a gunshot wound in Madras in 1824, leaving a young son, Henry Charles Lawlor who, after being educated in Scotland, married a descendant of the Foulis family (also born in India and grand daughter of a bibi). He arrived in NZ in July 1841 on the 'Brilliant' with his wife Anne Caroline and infant daughter born on the ship out.

This branch of the NZ Lawlors is thoroughly documented in a book "The 3 Worlds of Anne and Henry Lawlor" written by Henry Charles' great grandaughter Louise Buckingham and published in 2006, one of a series of family genealogy publications Louise wrote.

Hi Tish,

As far as I can see the children of this family appear to be:
1. Michael Hugh Lawlor 1786-1824
2. Hugh 1787-
3. James 1789-
4. Mary Ann c1790-1833
5. Elizabeth 1799-

Mary Ann is the only one I've seen mentioned elsewhere. Most Hugh Lawlor mentions are of the older doctor who died around 1824, and of Hugh Lawlor of Cork who inherited from him.

For followers of the earlier part of this thread it looks like James Conway did the 18th century equivalent of money laundering in 1771 when Samuel Windis, that famous hosier from Dublin, grabbed the Lawlor estates using a Protestant Discovers bill he then sold them on to Henry Blennerhassett. The money would of course have gone to James. See deed 189310 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSJW-P3G8?i=25&cat=185720

Elizabeth's father Eugene Mahony is mentioned in her marriage settlement.

Memorial: 336727 8th May 1798 Hugh Lawlor of Cloundonegan
“Eugene Mahony of Castle farm of Mullinge in sd Co Gent of 2d part and Elizth Mahony in sd Co spinster of the third part”. Hugh and Elizabeth are shortly to be married (in 1783)- https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSH3-Q9N3-Z?i=293&cat=185720

The Diocesan Wills for Ardfert and Aghadoe has the following two entries that are probably her parents:
- 7th January 1814 Eugene O’Mahony - http://census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/dw/IRE_DIOC_007246594_00141.pdf
- 2nd December 1819 Margaret O’Mahony, relict of Eugene - http://census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/dw/IRE_DIOC_007246594_00141.pdf

Eugene is mentioned at:
- Kerry, Oaths of Allegiance 1775 - 7th March 1776 Eug. Mahony, Castlefarm. Gent.
- The Belfast Newsletter, Co. Kerry freeholders – 19th July 1799 - O'Mahony, E. of Castle-Farm
- A Directory to the Market Towns: Villages, Gentlemen's Seats... By Ambrose Leet (1814) - Castle-farm   Killarney   Eugene O’Mahony Esq
See also http://homepage.tinet.ie/~sliabhluachraces/firies.htm and http://landedestates.nuigalway.ie/LandedEstates/jsp/property-show.jsp?id=5019

And this might be Eugene mentioned in another marriage settlement:
Memorial: 303699 20th January 1794 Daniel Mahony of Droumdisert is marrying Honora Griffin - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSJW-P5PL?i=86&cat=185720 Daniel is the eldest son of John, Honora the second daughter of Michael. Witnesses were Eugene Mahony of Molahiff and John Falvey of Killarney. Maybe he is related to the Mahony's at Droumdisert who descended from Teige Mahony who leased Droumdisert from the Browne's on 1st November 1669.

Eugene/ Owen isn't a common Mahony name though it does crop up in the Castleisland branch: http://maison.omahony.free.fr/Barthelemy_fichiers/genealogie_tableau.jpg

...

I have only seen an entry for an extracted IGI for Hugh 1787
