Balynae (Ballynae, Johnstown) Co. Kildare

  Balynae (Ballynae, Johnstown) Marriage Index 1801-09 (very broken)

This is an index of the names of the people who were married in the Roman Catholic parish of Ballynae (Balynae, Johnstown) during the  years 1802-1809.   It sounds like a lot of years are covered in this but it is not so.  There are 3 records for 1801 and 2 for 1802.  Then the register jumps to October 1807.  Then we have Jan to Nov 1808 and June-Oct 1809.  The following table of marriages is transcribed from Balynae (Ballynae, Johnstown) Microfilm No. 4206 held online by the National Library of Ireland accessible through their Roman Catholic Parish Register Search page.   All names and surnames given here are as I read them.

My list is sorted by the surname of the groom.  Question marks indicate letters or words I had a problem reading.  The letters ‘sic’ indicate that is how I read the letters I have typed.
[ ] indicates that the letters within the brackets are my best guess at what the letters might be.

Townlands are  given for 1801 and 1802 where the script is beautiful and easy to read.  The Rev. M. Kennedy succeeded the Rev. M. Corcoran on 16th August 1802 and from that point forward No townlands are given.  I have not included the few townlands that were given in those first few months.  The ‘n’ of the name Elen Gallagher is superscript which would seem to indicate that she was an Eleanor.  Ele’n’ is not taken as a shortened version of the name Ellen.

Castledermot,
Co. Kildare,
Ireland.

According to the Lewis Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837) :”CASTLE-DERMOT, a post-town and parish (formerly a market-town), in the barony of KILKEA and MOONE, county of KILDARE, and province of LEINSTER, 7 ¼ miles (S. E. by E.) from Athy, and 34 (S. W. by S.) from Dublin; containing 3634 inhabitants, of which number, 1385 are in the town. This place, called anciently Diseart-Diarmuda, and afterwards Tristle-Dermot, appears to have derived its origin from an abbey founded here for Canons Regular, about the year 500, by St. Diermit, which was plundered by the Danes in 843, and again in 1040.”

Also “In the R. C. (Roman Catholic) divisions this parish is the head of a union or district, comprising the parishes of Castledermot, Moone, Timolin, Kilkea, Killelan, Dunmanogue, Grangerosnolvin, and Kinneagh, and part of the parish of Graney; there are three chapels in the union, one in this parish, a spacious edifice combining various styles of architecture, and one each at Moone and Levitstown. “
