I am trying to trace my family history and believe a relative, Joseph Manning came from Ahascragh, Galway.  He left Galway in 1819 with his wife Dorinda and baby Joseph.  I am not sure who his relatives may have been but see there were other Manning  nearby but cannot find a Joseph (I presume there was a Snr).  If anyone has any information about him, Dorinda or their family I would very much appreciate it.  Thank you.

    I assume you know that RC records for Ahascragh parish do not begin until 1840.

    I checked the 1824 Tithe listings and the 1855 Griffiths Valuation head of household listings for Ahascragh parish and the only Mannings I see are named either Thomas or Michael. Tithe listing has four Thomas records and one Michael. (There may be some duplicate Thomas records)…

    The Griffiths have three Thomas and three Michael records and again there could be some duplicates where the same person had two or three properties.

  • There are public family trees on Ancestry showing the Manning family.  It looks like the family went to India, where Joseph Jr.  was born. Dorinda died as follows:

    Name:Dorinoa Manning


    Marital Status:Married

    Age:22Birth Date:1798

    Burial Date:12 Aug 1820

    Burial Place:Bombay, Bombay, India


    Joseph Manning



    FHL Film Number:527691


    Check British army records online to see if you can find more info about Joseph Sr.


    I hope this helps.
