Conneely col
« on: Sunday 07 May 17 21:24 BST (UK) »
Hi there

I am researching the Conneely and O flaherty ancestors of my grandmother.

I have come across the letters / word 'col' following Conneely on the 1901 census.

There does not seem to be any relation to an army colonel , does anybody know what the significance of col could be , if any.

They were from Galway.
Upon moving to the UK , my grandmother used the spelling Connolly.

I would love to know what the col signifies.
Thanks , Siobhan.

I suggest that you provide the census reference, so that it can be considered in context.

It's the Irish way to differentiate between different families of the same name in the same townland., You'll often see the same in Griffith's Valuation.

If you look at the listing of people in Inisher townland there's also a Conneely Andy, Conneelly Larry, several Conneely Johns, etc.

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
