Searching for Cunninghams in Galbally
« on: Tuesday 04 November 14 06:45 GMT (UK) »
Hello all!  This is my first post here. My great-grandparents were Cornelius and Mary (nee Halpin) Cunningham.  Cornelius was born on 14 January 1877 in Annagh, Galbally. His parents were Patrick and  Johanna (Daly) Cunningham.  Mary Halpin was born in 1879 in County Limerick.  They emigrated and arrived in the United States on 11 June 1908 with their three children Patrick, Michael and Josephine and settled in Park Slope Brooklyn.  I heard that Cornelius had siblings whose names were  James, Martin, Mary, Hanorah(Nora), Patrick and Catherine. Are their any descendants of theirs that are still in Ireland?

Thanks,
Brian

It's always hard to track girls of a couple given that if they married we'd have no idea of how they might show on the 1901 Census.

So, looking for James but I don't see any good matches.

Martin, I have just found one possibility ~

This is the chap in 1911

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Limerick/Riversdale/Ardnamoher/635103/

The same chap was with his wife and first son on the 1901 Census in London, England.

So, Ardnamoher is in Galbally.

Also, the naming pattern for his children looks promising.

I can't see a good marriage match for Martin in Ireland BUT he may have married in England.

I can only see this one possibility in London, England.

It's the same parish as the birth of their first son Patrick.

It's a bit tight but there is a Bridget Hanrahan on the same page !

Name:    Martin Cunningham
Year:    1901
Quarter:    Jan-Feb-Mar
District:    St Olave Southwark
County:    London
Volume:    1d
Page:    284
