Susan Arnold married William Crowley lived Stradbally

Any information would be appreciated.

I'm descended from William Crowley (1803-1868]  and Susan Arnold  married 1841 who lived in Stradbally.
William was the son of Charles who I believe was the son of Cornelius who lived at Curraghmore.

I have some information on the Crowleys but know nothing of Susan Arnold's family. Susan may have died in 1856.

My ancestor is George Crowley (B1852], son of William,and Susan Arnold  who came to Australia in 1871. His siblings John William, Eliza, Ellen and Charles all came to Australia as well.     Thank you.

  • Sally:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and do not see the 1841 marriage record for Susan and William. Do you have a copy? I also do not see the baptismal record for Susan. I'm wondering if the Church of Ireland parish for her baptism and marriage does not have records available back in the mid-19th century.

  • Thanks Roger the only evidence I can find is a handwritten entry in the Public Record Office of Ireland Marriage Licence Bonds, Diocese of Waterford and Lismore.

    Crowley   William and Susan Arnold 1841.  Names were as per information on Australian Certificates. On the Baptism Record fortheir children at Stradbally With Clonea and Ballylanheen, Waterford, Ireland her name is just given as Susan. I have not see original documents. Thanks again.

  • Hello Sallymarie,

    Thank you for your message.

    I was unable to find the marriage in the Stradbally Church of Ireland marriage register so I wonder if Susan was from a different parish.

    From memory, William and Susan lived in Knockrour, just outside the village. All that's left of the house is part of a gable wall. 

    I've done a good bit of research on the Church of Ireland parish of Stradbally and its families, and would be very interested to discuss this further. My email is

    Best wishes,
