Ireland Road Trip part 3 - Mary Fitzhenry and Martin Farrell

Back to the marriage and baptism records at the Abbey Centre, Graiguenamanagh.

The second Fitzhenry marriage was as follows and I believe this was the eldest daughter of Martin Fitzhenry and Judith Doyle
16 August 1865
Martin Farrell Clohasta
Mary Fitzhenry Clohasta
(Register 3, page 132)

The following three children were baptised at Graiguenamanagh but the family resided on the south bank of the river Barrow in Tinnahinch, spelt in 3 different ways in the register: These are baptism dates rather than birth dates.

1 August 1869
Martin Farrell
Martin and Mary Fitzhenry

16 August 1870
Mary Farrell
Martin and Mary Fitzsimons
(I think Fitzsimons is a mistake by the priest - in all other respects the details fit. There are no more Martin and Mary Farrell couples in Tinnahinch)

23 April 1873
Bridget Farrell
Martin and Mary Fitzhenry

From an old message left on the Ancestry website some years ago, this family emigrated to New South Wales in 1883. If there are any descendants out there who have more information on this family, please get in touch.
