Killian and Kilronan (Cilleronan) Ballygar, Galway. Baptismal Index 1804

This is one of those ‘interesting’ Roman Catholic parish records in that the actual name on the microfilm of records is different to the one in the reference book I have.

The name on the microfilm of parish records says ‘Killian & Kilronan Ballygar’, the name on the reference book says ‘Killian & Cilleronan’.

The register at this point of time (1804) is in Latin. That means that the first names, the Christian names are written in Latin and the surnames are in English.  The spellings as you see them here are exactly as I read them, except for one letter.  For some names or place names you will see the letter É I have only just noticed this.  I did not write that letter and I can only assume that the computer converted whatever I typed in to that letter. Question marks indicate letters or words that I had a problem with, the more question marks  at any word, the bigger the problem I had reading the letters.  Place names are given in most instances, dates were missing from some entries as they had been on the side of the page.  All entries are in the order I read them. I have not included the names of ‘witnesses’ or ‘sponsors’

For information on the translation of these Latin first names, see my article on Latin names in English

The first names are abbreviated: Hona=Honor ; Mathw=Matthew ; Jonnes=an error and should be Joannes ; Thos/Thoms=Thomas ;

One final note. I only got to 11th Dec 1804 with this register, I may have missed a few entries before the end of Dec.

Baptism Records, Woodford, Co. Galway, 1869

Woodford Roman Catholic Parish,
Clonfert Diocese,
Co. Galway,

My Lyons family are from Woodford, along with Noonan.  My Grandfather, Matthew John Lyons cycled a bicycle from Woodford up to Longford and there began a meat business.

Woodford Roman Catholic baptismal record begins in 1821, the first section I came cross on the film I had was from Feb 20th, 1869 and there I began.  This section of the register is in Latin and for once the Priest seemed to know his Latin.  Where you see names spelled differently it is because the ending of the name changes if you are the ‘son of’ or the ‘father of’.  I do have a page on from-ireland translating the Latin names to English names.

As usual, I have kept the spellings of the names as best I could read them.  I have not changed any.  I have not sorted the surnames aphabetically, I have left them as they were listed.  We had exactly 47 registrations in 1869.

The film ref for the National Library of Ireland is 2433.

The LDS have a copy of this film and their ref as per my records is 1279217/8,18,19-21, 1-6.

I indexed all children and parents for 1869, and from then until Oct 25th, 1872 I transcribed the details for any Lyons, Noone or Noonan surnames.  My main index is for the 1869 records and below that you will see all records for these three surnames 1870-Oct 73

Question marks indicate letters or words I had a problem with. Placenames were not given in this section of the register.

The first section is for the year 1869.  The year is included in the second section.

Joseph son of Colman Madden & Sarah Egan. SS. John Fahy & Sally Fahy
