Edmond (Ned) CAREW [Parents] was born on 2 Apr 1898 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He died on 28 Jun 1974 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He was buried in Solohead Churchyard, Co. Tipperary. Edmond married Catherine FAHEY on 9 Feb 1932 in Annacarty, Co. Tipperary.

In the 1901 census Ned is listed, aged three, with the family of his aunt Catherine Ryan in Gortanerrig, Soloheadbeg. Presumably he was visiting at the time. Catherine was probably a sister of Ned's mother, Mary Coffey.

Ned was a farmer and lived in Soloheadbeg all his life. A death notice was located in online newspaper (Sunday Independent) archives for an Edmond Carew of Soloheadbeg who died at his residence on 28 June 1974. I believe that this notice refers to our Ned above.

Note: Ned's surname was Carew, and his children were christened with the surname Carew, but it appears the family sometimes goes by the name of Carey.

Catherine FAHEY [Parents] was born on 7 Jan 1900 in Crossayle, Cappawhite, Co. Tipperary. Catherine married Edmond (Ned) CAREW on 9 Feb 1932 in Annacarty, Co. Tipperary.

They had the following children.

  F i Mary CAREW was born about 1933. She died on 9 Jul 2013.

Bridget (Breda) CAREW was born in 1938 in probably Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. She died on 24 Jun 2017. She was buried in Solohead Cemetery, Co. Tipperary.

Breda, who never married, lived in Garryskillane in Tipperary town.

John SHANAHAN [Parents] was born in probably about 3 March 1809 in probably Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He was christened in probably 5 Mar 1809 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 9 Jan 1894 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. John married Mary WOULFE (caution: relationship to parents not verified) on 4 Feb 1840 in Athea, Co. Limerick.

If John's father's name was indeed Cornelius then it is surprising John did not name his eldest son Cornelius, following the tradition at the time of naming one's elest son after the paternal grandfather. It is possible, however, that John could have had a son named Cornelius before Patrick below (born April 1842) who might have died as a child.

Mary WOULFE (caution: relationship to parents not verified) [Parents] was born in about late 1810s in probably Athea, Co. Limerick. She died before 9 Jan 1894 in probably Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. Mary married John SHANAHAN on 4 Feb 1840 in Athea, Co. Limerick.

My Woulfe family came from Athea. I have been DNA-matched by Ancestry with various descendants of Maurice James Woulfe and Ellen O'Dower of Athea, the type of match suggesting that Mary was closely related to them. She may have been a duaghter of theirs but because this is not cetain I have added a caution.

I have been told that one of the children of Mary above and her husband, John, may have married someone by the name of Walsh from Marble Hole in Tarbert, Co. Kerry. However, Mary and John also had a granddaughter, Mary Collins, who married a Willie Walsh from Marble Hole, so perhaps it was a granddaughter rather than a son or daughter who married a Walsh from Marble Hole.

Marriage Notes:

A transcribed version of John and Mary's marriage certificate was purchased via the Roots Ireland website, www.rootsireland.ie. Unfortunately, neither the addresses of the bride and groom nor the fathers' names are provided. We do, however, have the witnesses' names, Richard Woulfe and James White.

A separate source has told me that John and Mary "were related in the 3rd and 4th grade". This apparently means they were second cousins once removed. However I have not managed to establish how they were related.

They had the following children.

  M i
Patrick SHANAHAN was born about 14 Apr 1842 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 16 Apr 1842 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died before 16 Mar 1851 in probably Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Patrick's baptism were James Shanahan and Ellen Shanahan.

It appears Patrick died as a child as another son of John and Mary's, born nine years later, was also named Patrick.
  F ii Mary SHANAHAN was born about 1844. She died on 21 Sep 1901.
  M iii Richard SHANAHAN was born about 1848. He died on 3 Apr 1924.
  M iv James SHANAHAN was born about 18 Aug 1849. He died on 27 Oct 1895.
  M v
Patrick SHANAHAN was born about 14 Mar 1851 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 16 Mar 1851 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died after 2 Apr 1911 in probably Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Patrick's baptism were William Woulfe and Bridget Woulfe.

It seems Patrick never married. He lived with his brother Richard and is listed as single in both the 1901 and 1911 census returns for Richard's household. According to the returns, Patrick could not read, unlike Richard.

However, a Patrick Shanahan, aged "about 72" and a widower, died on 5 December 1925 in Kilbaha (of "probably old age"). The informant on the death certificate was a John Shanahan of Kilbaha (releationship to deceased not specified). Could our Patrick above have married between 1911 and 1925? Could the John Shanahan be our Patrick's nephew (son of Richard)?
  F vi
Honora SHANAHAN was born about 7 Oct 1852 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 9 Oct 1852 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

The sponsor at Honora's baptism was Bridget Woulfe.

I have not managed to find any more information on Bridget.
  vii
'unknown' SHANAHAN was born about 29 Apr 1854 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. 'unknown' was christened on 1 May 1854 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

On 'unknown's baptismal record, the first name is not recorded, nor are there any sponsors listed. It is possible that 'unknown' is Johanna. Although I have no evidence that John and Mary had a daughter named Johanna, a Johanna Shanahan from Kilbaha, whose father's name was John, was married in Moyvane on 14 April 1874 to a Michael Sheahan of Crohan (I have been unable to determine where exactly Crohan is located). Michael's father's name was Martin and witnesses were John Shanahan and John Sheahan.
  F viii Bridget SHANAHAN was born about 14 Jan 1857. She died on 1 Apr 1895.
  F ix Ellen (Ellie) SHANAHAN was born about 1859. She died on 15 Oct 1903.

Joseph NOLAN was born about 1821 in probably Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. He died on 3 Jun 1896 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. Joseph married Catherine (Kitty) HEALY on 1 Feb 1860 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry.

Joseph was a farmer and lived in Lenamore (also spelled Leanamore), Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. While Griffith's Valuation (1848 to 1864) has no Nolans listed as occupying land in Lenamore, indicating that Joseph may have been born elsewhere, a Mary Nolan of Lenamore married a Thomas Shanahan in Ballylongford in 1836. Could Mary have been a sister of Joseph's?

By the time of the birth of his daughter Elizabeth (January 1862), Joseph was living in Lenamore.

The only Nolans listed in Griffith's Valuation for Aghavallan (equivalent to today's parish of Ballylongford) were the following:
Cornelius (Aghanagran Lower)
Patrick (Ballymacasy)
Timothy (Killelton)
Perhaps one of the above was Joseph's father.

Both Joseph and his wife, Kitty, had died by the time of the 1901 census and no Nolan households in Lenamore were found in eiher the 1901 or 1911 census suggesting that Joseph and Kitty had no surviving sons. There was only one Nolan household in the entire parish of Ballylongford listed in the 1901 census (none in the 1911 census), that of Tom Nolan in the townland of Tullahennell. Could Tom have been related to Joseph? The informant on Joseph's death record was his son-in-law Nicholas Madden of Lenamore so it is possible that Nicholas and his wife, Sarah, were left the Nolan family farm.

Joseph died of "paralysis" from which he had been suffering for nine months, according to his death record.

The Nolan surname is very common throughout Ireland, especially in the south-east. It is strongly linked to the Carlow area where it is an anglicised form of O Nualláin. The prevalence of the name in Mayo and Galway is explained by the migration of a branch of the Carlow family there in the sixteenth century. There was also a separate Ó hUallacháin family from west Cork, whose name was anglicised as Nolan. Could Joseph have been a descendant of these west Cork Nolans?

Catherine (Kitty) HEALY was born about 1829 in Clontubrid, Listowel, Co. Kerry. She died on 29 Aug 1883 in Lenamore, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. Catherine married Joseph NOLAN on 1 Feb 1860 in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry.

Very sadly, Kitty died just three days after her 22-year-old son Tom. She was 54 years of age and had been suffering from tuberculosis.

Unfortunately we know nothing about Kitty's parents or siblings, if any, apart from the fact that they were from Clontubrid (I have also seen Clontubrid spelled as Clountubrid, Cloontubrid and Cloontubbrid), near Listowel, Co. Kerry. However it is possible Kitty was related to two other Healys from Clontubrid in my family tree: Philip, born about 1830 and John who was born about 1870.

Healy is a very common surname throughout Ireland. For the most part, those bearing the Healy name today are descended from one of two Irish families, the Ó hEilidhe (from the Irish word "eilidhe" meaning "claimant") originally from south-east Sligo, and the Ó hEaladaighthe (from the Irish word "ealadhach" meaning "ingenious") from the parish of Donoghmore in Co. Cork. Given the proximity of Cork to Kerry, I imagine Catherine may have been a descendant of the Donoghmore Healys.

Kerry. He was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Michael married Bridget SHANAHAN on 21 Feb 1928 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Mick's baptismal sponsors were Michael Moran and Honora Moran.

Mick was also known as "Mickeen John Paddy" (because his father was John and his grandfather was Paddy). It is likely he inherited the family farm. Mick was well known in the area for his ability to cure ringworm, this knowledge apparently having been passed down to him by his father. When people would come to him with ringworm, he would apply to the skin a mixture made up mostly of unsalted butter, but nobody knows what he put into the butter to make the cure.
