Hi all,
I am seeking information on the decendents of the relatives of my 2G grandfather, John Cawley, who remained in Ireland after John emigrated about 1834 to Canada / America. They were living in Kilmorgan parish, Branchfield townland.
The 1858 Griffith’s valuation indicates Hugh and Thomas Cawley in Branchfield.
The 1901 census show Anne, (widow of Hugh 1822-1888), and Catherine (1841-?) still there.
1911 census Anne (1833-?), Patrick (probable son b. 1854), Anne (b. 1857 possible wife of Patrick), James (b. 1887 possibly son of Anne & Patrick still in Branchfield.
The next information I have is 1960. A Patrick Cawley who appears to be the last Cawley landowner living in Branchfield recorded in the Landowners record around 1960.
That’s all I have on my Sligo ancestors.
Does anyone know about these Cawley families or anyone from Branchfield townland?

Thanks much
Beth McCauley Gray
