My gg grandfather Patrick Bendon was born in Galway around 1825.  He emigrated to the US and settled in Kansas and  married  a woman from Cork.  The only place I have found records of Bindons is in Clarinbridge. I have recently found a possible connection to the surnames Ford/Forde and Burke in Galway and I wonder if anyone familiar with the area can connect the surnames.  Many thanks

  • Hello Rachael

    My name is Clare Horgan I am a volunteer for the Claregalway area in Co. Galway. 

    I did a little research on resources available to me. I could not find your Patrick Bendon born in Galway in 1825. I did find Bendon's in other parts, especially in Co. Limerick. May I ask what resource you got your information from that relates to Clarenbridge?

    Here are some heritage sites on Clarenbridge.

    If you do have any other information to help in the search, it would be most grateful

    If you wish to contact me for help and guidance, I would be only delighted to help.

    My email is

    Best of luck
