Roddy Family

Hello I am tracing my fathers family his grandfather is Thomas Roddy born march  1879 address Lisphilip  Parish ballinameen,  Parents are james Roddy (a farmer/stonemason) born around 1842 in Scor beg I think and thomas's mother is bridgit/brigid Redican or Rattigan born around 1843.

In the Griffiths valuation there are 4 roddys listed in the Kilmacumsy area I think they might all be related. I believe my lot are listed on the griffiths valuation in lisphilip there are two people listed there Luke and Bryan Roddy possibly brothers. There is also an Owen Roddy in Gortnacloy and a James Roddy in Tartan.

I also think there is a Luke Roddy from this property involved back around 1820 or so maybe.

My Roddys  are also listed at the same property in 1901 and 1911 at house 2 lisphilip, Kilmacumsy

Thomas has other siblings

Bridget Roddy 1875 ?? unsure about this person

John Roddy 1875

Luke Roddy 1877

Thomas Roddy 1879

Catherine Roddy 1882

Michael Roddy 1885

Honor Roddy 1873 who went on to marry a Mathew Quinn  from Runnacocka their children are

Patrick Quinn 1895   james Quinn   1897 Mary Katherine Quinn   1899  John Quinn 1901

Bridgit teresa Quinn 1905  Mathew Quinn 1908.

Thomas Roddy 1879 moved to leigh in lancashire where he married and had a family. He also served in world war 1 and survived.

  • Pam:

    I found the 1873 marriage index record for James Roddy and Bridget Rattican. ( You can ignore the other spouse names. They were for other marriages recorded on the same page). You can write to the GRO for a copy of the marriage record which will show the names of the fathers of the bride and grrom and where they were living when the marriage occurred. Fill out the GRO form and provide the year of marriage, registration district ( Boyle) and the volume and page number ( 4 and 81). Costs around 4 euros.

    By the way, my grandmother was a Norah Roddy from Roscommon but she lived near the town of Ballaghaderreen.

  • Hi Pam, my ancestor Francis Conry and his wife Brigid (nee Dempsey) are listed in the tithe appointment books as neighbours of your ancestors. Their son named Luke was baptised in Elphin in 1811.

  • I am wondering if you have been successful in finding out more on the Roddy family.
    Lisphilip, Scurbeg & Tartan are all villages on the same road, now called Tartan Road. appx 3miles from Ballinameen village.
    I was born in Tartan & I am familiar with the area. If you had no success I can try and make enquiries on your behalf.
    I know for certain that this family name is no longer based there.
    Hope this is of some use to you.
