James Joyce listed in Griffith's valuation tenant farmer listed in Coolacloy and Hogs Island.
He is the father of Thomas Joyce who married Mary McGawley (McAwley/ McGauley .. pick your own spelling!) in 1867 Civil Parish of Roundstone. Their children were all born at Coolacloy and they immigrated to North America. They arrived in San Francisco about 1882.
There are two Joyce families showing in the 1911 census. Michael Joyce and John Joyce, sons of Pat(rick). It seems their sister Bridget is nearby married to Valentine Diamond. Is the father Patrick the brother of my Thomas Joyce who is my great great grandfather? Are there any other Joyce siblings?
I am in California and will be visiting Ireland in August 2018.
