Kyle (Knock, Corbally), Tipperary & Laois (Queen’s Co.)

Marriage Index 1846-49

The following table of Kyle (Knock, Corbally) marriages is transcribed from Microfilm No. 2479.   This microfilm is kept online by the National Library of Ireland accessible through their Roman Catholic Parish Register Search page.  This is an index of the names of the people who were married in this Roman Catholic parish during the years 1846-49 This section of the register is in English.  It was very difficult to read

My list is sorted by the surname of the groom.  Question marks indicate letters or words I had a problem reading. Spellings are exactly as I read them, no corrections have been made, the letters in brackets ‘sic’ means that whatever spelling I have given it is as I read it. Square brackets [ ] hold letters that I am guessing at.

Place names are not given in this section of the register.  Witness names are NOT given in many of these records.

Rathdowney, Laois. Baptisms 1854

Rathdowney, Laois

Rathdowney, Laois.  Baptismal Index 1854

The following table of Lixnaw marriages is transcribed from Microfilm No. 5014/2 held online by the National Library of Ireland accessible through their Roman Catholic Parish Register Search page.  This is an index of the names of the people who were baptised in the Roman Catholic parish of Rathdowney, during the year 1853.

This register is in English and there were a few converts baptised – the children of Daniel & Anne Ringwood, Sophia Evans and Robert ?Marvet.  Robert was 65.  One child was baptised at the ago of ten and the register says that the parents of the child are unknown.

I have the letters n.g. where no word was written for a name or a placename.  Question marks indicate that I had a problem reading the name and I am giving a best guess.  With the repeated entries placenames were spelled differently.  I keep to all spellings as I read them.

My list is sorted by the surname of the groom.  Please note that a section of the register was repeated from about August 1854.  For some of the entries which were put into the register a second time there was a different placename, for one of them I read the male surname incorrectly the first time.  Edward Dunn got married in 1912.  A few of these children were born out of marriage.

Rathsaran Gravestone Photographs, Co. Laois

Rathsaran gravestone photographs, Laois

Church of Ireland,
Rathsaran,
Laois.

This church is in the Church of Ireland parish of Rathdowney. These photographs were taken between 2008 and 2009. This section is only the older section of the graveyard. The modern section has not been photographed.

We are giving you close up images of the gravestone photographs in some instances.  All gravestone photographs are reduced in size in order to allow us have copies of all photographs on this site.  We have a full photograph of each stone as well as the close ups.  From-Ireland.net charge 3 Euro to email you a copy of a photograph or set of photographs.

Contact From-Ireland.net to purchase a High Quality JPG of any gravestone for €3.00.

The surnames which are on the gravestones are given as the names of the gravestones.  Each stone will have a number on it indicating the number of times that the first surname has been found on any stones., e.g. if a stone had the surname Lyons as the first surname on the stone then the stone becomes Lyons 1.  If I find another stone with the surname Lyons on it in a different plot then this becomes Lyons 2.  If there are other surnames on the stone then these surnames come after the number.
The letters a, b or others after a number indicate that there were a number of gravestones on one plot and these all belong together

One thing needs to be mentioned here, I transcribed by hand all the information on stones in Rathsaran back in the 1996-98 period.  I created word documents of this information and you will find these documents on this website at the following link. The wording on older stones here will be in that document if I was able to read them at that time.  Be sure to check the document.

Baptism Records, Mountrath, Co. Laois, 1823-24

This is a  baptismal index of children who were baptised and their parents from the set of Roman Catholic parish registers for Mountrath, Co. Laois in the years 1823-24.  Very few of the townlands named belong to the civil parish of Offerlane which is where Mountrath is in Laois.  There are two placenames which I would guess fit the townland of Knockannagad and these are ‘Nockanna’ and ‘Knockann….e’ in Mountrath.  Also ‘Deranagh’ may be Dernamanagh from the list of townland in Ireland in a pre 1900 census return Mountrath.

See IRL-Atlas of Ireland.

The names and place names are as I read them.  The following are the first names that some abbreviations are or can be for.

Marriage Records, Rathdowney, Co. Laois, 1860-65

Roman Catholic parish, Rathdowney, Laois.  Marriages 1860-1865

Spellings are exactly as I read them, some of you could possibly read them differently. Surname spellings are not exactly as they are today in some instances.Question marks indicate letters or words I had difficulty reading.

First names are shortened by Priest in register.  Nicknames/short names are as follows. Where I have the word ‘can’ in this list it means that the name can be one or other names listed or it can stand as it’s own name.  Anty=Anastasia; Betty=Elizabeth; Bridgt=Bridget, Cathr=Catherine, Con=Cornelious, Dan/Danl=Daniel, Ellen can = Helen, Jer/Jermh=Jeremiah, Kate can=Catherine, Kitty can = Catherine or Kathleen, Kyran=Kieran, Magt/Marg=Margaret, Pat/Patt=Patrick, Richd=Richard, Wm=William

Fr. Richard O’Keeffe was Parish Priest in 1860.
Jermiah Whelan and Mary Dongan marriage on 20 Dec 1861 should really be 1860.  It was a December entry and  just before the first January 1861 entry.  I think the Priest meant to write 1860 but because he was also adding entries for 1861 he got confused.

n.g. = Not given.
Records are sorted in this table by the surname of the man.

Marriage Records, Rathdowney, Co. Laois, 1877-1880

Roman Catholic Parish Rathdowney,
Co. Laois (Queen’s Co.)
Marriages 1877-1880
extracted from microfilm 5014 03 online at the National Library of Ireland.

Interestingly this section of the film is difficult enough to read.  I am from the area, in the days before Ireland had much genealogical information on the internet I had gone to the NAI and the NLI indexing the names in items such as the Griffiths Primary Valuation for Laois and the surnames of every single head of household in Laois at the time of the 1901 census.  Put all of that with my gravestone work for Laois and I think I am quite familiar with the surnames in Laois.  I still had difficulty with this parish register.

Questionmarks after a name or surname in the index show those names I was not sure of.  This may change in time as I find them written in other records and I can correct my question marks. Spellings are left as I read them, I have not changed any surname to fit with the current spelling.  The table has been sorted alphabetically by the surname of the man.
