James (Jim) THORNTON [Parents] was born in possibly June 1818 in possibly Lixnaw, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly 9 April 1884 in possibly Church St., Listowel, Co. Kerry. James married Hanora (Norrie) CUNNINGHAM on 10 Feb 1844 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

I think it possible that Jim was the James Thornton baptised in Lixnaw, Co. Kerry on 30 June 1818 is our Jim above, The parents of this James Thornton were John Thornton and Elizabeth McElligott.

There is a James Thornton listed in Griffith's Valuation (1848-1864) who occupied land in Kilbaha Middle in the parish of Murher (Moyvane). This James is the only Thornton listed for the entire barony of Iraghticonnor, of which Murher is a part, which suggests that this James is our Jim above.

A James Thornton in Church Street, Listowel on 9 April 1884. His death record describes him as a farmer and his age is given as 65, which ties in with the June 1818 birthdate mentioned above . I therefore think it likely that this James Thornton is our Jim above, despite the fact that he was living in Listowel rather than Kilbaha.

Valuation documents show that the occupier of Jim's farm changed from James to his wife, Hanora, in 1888. This fits with Jim having died in 1884 (changes in the valuation books often lagged behind actual changes). James, a son of Jim and Hanora's, became the occupier in 1902.

Hanora (Norrie) CUNNINGHAM [Parents] was born about 1826 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. She died on 15 Apr 1908 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. Hanora married James (Jim) THORNTON on 10 Feb 1844 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were James Cunningham and James Connor.

They had the following children.

  F i Johanna THORNTON was born about 1846. She died after 2 Apr 1911.
  F ii Elizabeth THORNTON was born about 1845. She died.
  F iii Margaret THORNTON was born about 1848. She died on 22 Jul 1926.
  M iv
John (Jack) THORNTON was born about 30 Jun 1852 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 2 Jul 1852 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

The sponsor at Jack's baptism was James Harrington.

I have been told by one family source that Jack lived in Kilbaha and never married, and by another that he was a priest in England.
  F v Catherine (Kate) THORNTON was born about 1853. She died in between 31 Mar 1901 and 2 Apr 1911.
  M vi Myles THORNTON was born about 25 Nov 1856. He died on 7 Apr 1930.
  F vii
Hanora (Nonie) THORNTON was born about 27 Jun 1859 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 29 Jun 1859 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died after 2 Apr 1911.

Sponsors at Nano's baptism were Thomas Relihan and Mary Kearney. Her date of baptism does not tie in with her age as given in the 1911 census (44) but ages given in census returns are quite unreliable as people like to shave a few years off their real age or, as was common in days gone by, they genuinely did not know their exact age as birthdays weren't celebrated as they are today.

I am told Nano "was born with a disability but lived a lengthy life". She never married and lived in Kilbaha, probably with her brother James as she is listed with him and his family in the 1911 census.
  M viii Michael (Mike) James THORNTON was born about 4 Oct 1861. He died in 1927.
  M ix James (Jim) THORNTON was born about 6 May 1864. He died on 20 Nov 1931.
  M x
Francis (Frank) THORNTON was born about 6 Mar 1866 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 8 Mar 1866 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Frank's baptism were Timothy Mulvihill and Johanna Cunningham.

Daniel (Dan) LYONS [Parents] was born about 20 Jan 1865 in Derry, Listowel, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 22 Jan 1865 in Listowel, Co. Kerry. He died on 8 Dec 1944 in Derry, Listowel, Co. Kerry. He was buried in St. Michael's Cemetery, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Daniel married Hanora (Nora) HUDSON on 4 Mar 1905 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

According to the 1911 census, Dan and Nora had been married six years and had five children born alive, four of whom were still alive at the time of the census.

Note: Civil records give give Dan's date of birth as 17 January 1865 but this is incorrect.

Hanora (Nora) HUDSON [Parents] was born on 25 Jul 1877 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 26 Jul 1877 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 7 Feb 1937 in Derry, Listowel, Co. Kerry. She was buried in St. Michael's Cemetery, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Hanora married Daniel (Dan) LYONS on 4 Mar 1905 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Civil records give a birth date of 3 August 1877 for Nora but this is incorrect. When one has differing birth and baptismal records one should use the information from the batismal record as births at that time, especially in rural areas, were often not registered until well after the event and incorrect birth dates were sometimes given, either because the exact date was forgotten or to avoid a fine for not registering a birth within the required time limit.

Nora's baptismal sponsors were William Hudson and Johanna Hudson.

Nora died of a cerebral haemorrhage aged 59.
