I am searching for any info on my family with surname Russell who lived in what was then Glarryford or Gloryford in Templetogeter Parish in 1867. Any info at all would be lovely.
Thank you

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Can you provide some names and ages? Can't find an official townland called Glarryford or Gloryford anywhere in Co. Galway.. No Russell records in the 1855 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing for Templetogher parish. No Russells in Templetogher parish in the 1901 census.

  • What I have is my great great grandmother, Mary M Russell born March 9 1867 in Gloryford to Thomas and Mary Thompson Russell. I believe Thomas was born in County Antrim. Mary left Ireland for America in 1886 or 87.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to look for me.

  • I searched for a baptismal record for Mary and also a civil birth record in the Glenamaddy registration district but had no success. I then searched on Roots Ireland for all of Ireland with the parents names you provided and no luck. Same with a search for the marriage record.

    One of our other volunteers, Shane Wilson, who is very knowledgeable with OSI maps found Gloryford within the townland of Derrywode in Templetogher parish.So Gloryford is a sub-townland of Derrywode. Let me know if the link below does not work.

  • I am also a descendant of Mary Maymie Russell. She was Catholic and was born around 1867. She was born March 09. I have never found baptismal records or passage records for her. She left from Galway Bay around 1887. Her mother's maiden name was Mary Thompson. She had an Aunt whose maiden name was Elizabeth Robert also born in Ireland.
