Bourney Church of Ireland Graveyard. Name Index

You will find an index to the names of people from memorial stones which are in the Church of Ireland graveyard in Bourney, Co. Tipperary.  Roman Catholics have in the past been buried in Church of Ireland graveyards as was the law.  Please don’t forget that.

An index to the names of people which appear in stones in the Church of Ireland graveyard at Bourney, Co. Tipperary.  Some of the stones were illegible at the time I was there but these stones will be re-visited in the Summer of 2016.  My index has question marks for those details that could not be read on the stones, these will also be checked during the Summer of 2016.  The table will then be changed if needs be.
e.s.= erected stone ; n.g.=not given

The table headings are as follows: Name : Surname : Date of Death : Year : Age at death : From : Stone name.

When I load the photographs to go with this index the photographs will not be linked to the index.  The photographs unlike earlier photographs on this web site will carry the surnames that are on the stone, these are the ‘stone name’.  Every time a surname occurs then the stone receives a different number, e.g. here in Bourney there are 3 stones with the surname Benn.  The first stone I read with the surname is Benn 1 , the next stone I read with that surname is Benn 2 and the third stone with the surname Benn on it had a second surname, Hoffler.   That stone became Benn 3 Hoffler.

Bourney (Couraguneen, Corbally), Tipperary & Offaly. Marriage 1836-37

Bourney (Couraguneen, Corbally), Tipperary & Offaly

Marriage Index 1836-37

The following table of Bourney (Bournea, Couraguneen, Corbally) marriages is transcribed from Microfilm No. 2478.   Please see farther below for placenames given by P.P. on this register.  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 1836 and 1837.  This section of the register is in English.  Unfortunately some entries on each new page were almost impossible 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 given in this section of the register.   This register is confusing in some ways.  The Roman Catholic parish of Roscrea & Kyle is listed as covering parts of Co. Laois because Kyle is only a wee bit from Borris in Ossory.  People in the parish records of Bourney (Bournea, Cuoraguneen) are generally listed as being from Roscrea.  Does this mean Roscrea town, Roscrea parish?  If Roscrea Roman Catholic parish is it possible that some of them were actually from Co. Laois?  This register is not listed as being associated with Co. Laois (Queen’s Co.)

On the register itself are written the following by a P.P. :
Cooraganeen : St Thomas
Clonoken[r]y : St. Mary of the Assumption
Camline: St. John the Baptist
Knock : St. Patrick

Then on the register when the P.P. was speaking of the different Parish Priests who had been associated with the parish “Roscrea & Bourney” ; “Bournay & Corbally”
