I am trying to pinpoint an orignating place that my line of Buckley's (they emigrated to London) came from. Kilmurry has been suggested, but does anyone know of any Buckley's that came from there?

Most grateful, should you be able to assist.

Regards

  • David:

    The 1852 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing shows six Buckley households in Kilmurry civil parish.

    If you can provide names and years of birth, we will try to assist further.

  • My great-grandmother was Margaret Buckley.  Her parents were Jeremiah Buckley and Margaret Sullivan.  According to Baptismal records that I found online, she was baptized in Kilmurry in 1843.  It appears that most of her siblings were baptized there also.  Her siblings include Julia, Ellen, Johanna, John, and possibly Catherine.

  • Rich:

    I searched the free site www.irishgenealogy.ie which has Kilmurry RC church records. I saw Margaret's baptismal record on December 19 1843 and one for John on April 11 1842 but no records for the other children in that parish. 

    I did find a baptismal record for an Ellen Buckley in Innishannon RC parish on March 2 1836 with the correct parents names. Also a September 23 1830 record for a Daniel Buckley in Innishannon and a July 28 1833 record for a Julia Buckley in Innishannon. There was a May 6 1838 record for a Johanna Buckley in the Murragh and Templemartin parish.

    In total six records. I did not find a record for Catherine but I did locate a Daniel. All three RC parishes are in close proximity. None of the records showed a townland.

    I did not find the marriage record.

  • Dear helpers,

    many thanks for your replies.

    The best I can offer at present is to say that Daniel Buckley's birth is likely 1826. This ascertained by early census in London.

    Via 'Ancesrtry', there are Hurley's and Donovan's in my lineage (and of course, heaps of others...) However, one distant 'cousin', who has Buckley's in her tree, lists Kilmurry as a possible village of departure.

    It is furher believed that 'Timothy' might be the father of Daniel together with a wife called Bridget - surname not positive.

    It is unsure whether Daniel married in Ireland or London, whichever, his wife's name was Margaret. 

    All a bit vague I'm afraid, but your persistence is appreciated.

    Regards all,

  • Update.

    this afternoon I notice a new addition on Ancestry's website in that the following has been added to a cousin's tree:-

    Daniel Buckley dob 1765 - Knocknakilla, Millstreet - father of James Buckley dob 1794 d.1848 - Knocknakilla, Millstreet, (wife Julia Healy 1787 - 1889) - father of Daniel Buckley dob 1821 Ireland d. 1917 Knocknakilla.

    Unfortunately, I am not in contact with the the said person to verify any of this, but I hope it helps.

    Regards

     

    David.

  • David:

    I'm confused with your reply. See my second response to you where i listed all six children that I located for parents Jeremiah Buckley and Margaret Sullivan. The oldest child I located was a Daniel Buckley who was baptized September 23 1830 in Innishannon RC church.

    In your reply, you are indicate the following:

    The best I can offer at present is to say that Daniel Buckley's birth is likely 1826. This ascertained by early census in London.

    It is furher believed that 'Timothy' might be the father of Daniel together with a wife called Bridget - surname not positive.

    I as indicated Daniel was baptized in 1830 in Innishannon to parents Jeremiah Buckley and Margaret Sullivan. Are there two Daniel Buckleys? Also, I would be very cautious about information added to a tree back in the 1700s.

    Let me know.

  • Thanks Roger,

    yes,sorry to confuse...

    The problem is that I cannot be sure of Daniel's date of birth and so Im relying on 'cousins' info, and the problem with that is it changes!.  I am writing again to enquire about latest information on a person's tree, hopefully, this time, I may get a reply and then share it with you...

    I too am very wary of what is stated and where it comes from, hence Ireland RO. I have another 'Buckley' connection in Canada who's only information derives from sea passage in the early 1800's, place of origin is given as Cork and Ross. As I'm sure you will be aware, that is a huge Catholic diocese, so not that helpful.

    Thanks again for help.

  • Roger,

    on closer inspection of cencus records, 1861/71/81, I have three approximate birth dates for Daniel and his wife Margaret. However, the 1861 cencus, which indicates an 1821 birth date for Daniel and 1836 for Margaret, (the biggest variation of the three) there is listed a daughter, Catherine, born, say, 1857 in ireland. Problem being, the other cencus, 1871 and 1881 state born in London. Who knows, perhaps the cencus taker was too quick with the pen! Of course, if true, perhaps a marriage and a birth in ireland - or indeed, another red herring!

    Best

    David
