MALONES of 5 Poole St Dublin

I am searching for any descendants of my MALONES of 5 Poole St Dublin. Parish of St Catherines.  I have the family living at that address around the 1850s.

Father is  FARRELL MALONE, my  gt gt. gt grandfather,  occupation as a weaver, married  Susan Phi(l)lips, and they had 6 children.

Eliza b. 1822 m. Thomas STOKES  9 Apr 1844, her father Farrell as witness.

Mary Ann b. 1825 may have married a James GAFFENY

John b. 1832  m ?

Anne b. 1834 m. Bernard KAVANAGH, (English soldier, sergeant,)  on 06 Jun 1857

James  b. 1836 m ?

Susan b. Dec 1837 (my gt gt grandmother) m. Edward DICKER, (English army sergeant) on 09 Feb 1857 at St Catherines  C of Ireland.  That same year they transferred to Australia with the 77th East Middlesex Regiment.

That is all the info I have on the family so far, so I am excited to make enquiries to find any living descendants.

thank you

  • Dear Jacqui

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out and apologies for the delay in replying to your message. 

    Firstly, Have you tried searching for any mention of your ancestor?s name in member family trees or messages? 

    As you can see from the link below, St. Catherine?s s a Civil Parish in Dublin:

    Records for the corresponding Roman Catholic Parish of St. Catherine?s begin in 1740, though there are some missing records within the records series themselves. Church of Ireland records begin 1699 for baptisms and 1679 for marriages. There are also some death records dating from 1679 to 1898.

    There are some places where you can search online, however these websites do not have complete collections and many do not cover the period after 1900: has a huge database of genealogical records including some church records for Ireland. have begun a project to upload Irish church records to their site free of charge. However, so far only Counties Dublin, Kerry, Carlow and parts of Cork have been covered.

    Other important sources include the Tithe Applotment Books and Griffith?s Valuation:

    Tithe Applotment Books (1823-1837):

    Griffith?s Valuation (1847-1864):

    Some other websites that may be helpful are:

    The National Archives of Ireland:  you can search the 1901/1911 Census on the National Archives page too

    The National Library of Ireland:

    The National Archives UK ? genealogy search: that you could use to research the British Solider aspect mentioned above

    The Public Records Office of Northern Ireland:

    Irish Times:

    Irish Genealogy Tool kit:

    I too am researching Malone's Silk Weaver from No.'s 5, 7 and 19 Poole Street.

    My husband's great grandfather William Malone of 7 Poole Street married Mary Ann Goss on 30 February 1871 - although shown in as Mary Ann Gevis (misspelt).


    I have been trying to link in to Farrell Malone and Susan Phillips for a long time but cannot find the connection.


    All the malone down to my father-in-law were silk weavers from Poole Street and the Coombe.

    Would love to find connection.

    I live in Perth WA, born in Dublin, been here since 1970.

    Regards, Louise Malone
