Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue), Galway. Marriages 1821-22

Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue) Marriages, Galway

Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue) Marriage Index 1821-22

The following table of Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue)  marriages is transcribed from Microfilm No. 2433 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 married in this Roman Catholic parish during the years 1821-22.  This section of the register is in English.  Placenames are not given.

My list is sorted by the surname of the groom.  Question marks or dots indicate letters or words I had a problem reading, two question marks then the harder the register was to read and I am most likely guessing as best I can as to what the surname is

The ‘funny’ thing about this marriage register is that the names are given in English.  The baptismal register had the first names in Latin

Nicknames, Shortened names used in Irish records

My Lyons, Noonan and Porter families are from the Roman Catholic parish of Woodford

Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue), Galway. Baptisms 1821

Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue), Galway

Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue) Baptismal Index 1821

The following table of Woodford (Ballinakill Upper, Cloncue) baptisms is transcribed from Microfilm No. 2433 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 children who were baptised in this Roman Catholic parish during the year 1821. This section of the register is in Latin.  This means that first names are given in Latin surname are in English.  All names given here are as I read them. When registers are in Latin many times we see names spelled incorrectly.  I do have a page online which gives Latin names in English so you may consider looking at that if you have any problems here.

Placenames are not given in this section of the register

My list is sorted by the surname of the child.  Question marks and dots indicate letters or words I had a problem reading, the more question marks the bigger a reading problem I had!
My Grandfather was a man by the name of Mathew John Lyons (from Woodford), my father was a Matthew Anthony Lyons.  Matthew John Lyons married Helena Noonan. Interestingly in this set of records the first Lyons to be baptised was a Mathias Lyons.

The Lyons, Noonan and Porter families in the Woodford records are somehow related to my family.

Baptism Records, Woodford, Co. Galway, 1869

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

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.
