Hi everyone I am coming to Ireland in August and will be staying in Moville for a night or so. Would love to know if there are any connections to the FAULKNER family still around.

The name is also spelt as Falconter and Farquinter in different records.

James FAULKNER married Mary Irwin  3 children I have found are John b1854 James b1859 and Mary Ann b1861 Both John and Mary Ann came to New Zealand married and settled here have not been able to find James at all.Family story is he went to America but have no way of knowing if this is true.

James Faulkner was found on Griffiths Valuation living in Cabry, Moville Upper, Inishowen, Co Donegal.
No description of tenement and the owner was noted as a James Brown.

Also living in Cabry and owning property in 1876 Landowners List were
Ann Faulkner -  2 acres
George Faulkner - 2 acres
Neal Faulkner - 7 acres     (these may be family relatives)

I would love to contact family if possible or maybe even find out where James and Mary are buried.

  • Patsy:

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The online Irish phone book (which is a partial list of phone users)   shows three or four Faulkner listings around Moville. For privacy reasons, we can't provide the records directly. Make sure you use the Residential TAB.

    There were three Faukiner families in the 1901 census for Cabry. Not sure how they relate to your ancestors.
