Thanks for your gift, and maybe you can help us. We've been looking for information on our first ancestor in the United States, a Morris Kirwan who lived from about 1700 to 1744 (or 55) in Dorchester County, Maryland. He started a long Kirwan line (which changed to Kirvin or Kervin or Kirven) that settled near Darlington, SC, and we have reunions with hundreds of Kirvens. But we don't know who he was or how he came to America! I've been looking in genealogical dictionaries from Ireland and Great Britain. Many Kirwans, but Morris?

Hi....I'm not sure if this of interest to you but I have information on Cregg Castle, it was owned by a Richard Kirwan and then later by the Blakes. I am tracing my Kirwan Family and thought it might have been mine, but don't think it is as my Kirwans came from Co Wexford.
We stayed a night at Cregg Castle, it is about 9 miles out of Galway. The owners of the castle have a Kirwan Family Tree.
Maybe we can help each other out here?I am looking for Kirwan or O'Grady. Around the 1840 era. I think they may have come from Gorey or close to it.

Regards
Lynn Langridge

Thank you Aoife, I would like that very much. I need all the help I can get. I have only traced back to my family coming into Australia in 1842. I know they came from Co Wexford. I have just returned from a visit to Ireland. While I was there I visited the National Library in Dublin. They told me because my great great Grandparents married in Ireland that they never usually travelled far to get there bride and to cross reference the Griffiths Valuation with both their names, which I did. I found a few Kirwans in Gorey and an O'Grady in Inch.....so am hoping thats them :) My Great Great Grandfather was a Shoemaker so would have lived in town they say, and the Gorey Kirwans lived in Main Street Gorey.....so fingers crossed :) Regards Lynn

Hi! I have both Kirwans and Blakes in my family. My gggrandfather was John Kirwan born in Blindwell, Galway in 1817. He married Julia Blake born in @1822. They had one child, Ellen, in Tipperary 1846, before they emigrated to the US and Towanda, Pennsylvania area in 1847-48 where they had several more children. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I do have a pedigree of the Kirwan's of Blindwell, these Kirwan's might not be your Kirwan's but might be related, you would need to do more research on that, I have not started researching the registry of deeds for the 1800's as I have been too busy with other things, My advice to you is to visit Dublin and do some research into this. I can send you the pedigree I have and some deeds pertaining to the Kirwan's in Blindwell up to 1799. But if you do need me or someone else to research your period in the registry of deeds for you, it can be an expensive bussness.
Here anyway is the last line of my blindwell pedigree which would be around the same period as your first generation. As you can see there is a James, a William and a Thomas is this family but then again these were very common names, none of the other names match and I would suspect that while they might be related, this is a different family, as I said above you really would need to research a bit more. If you have any more information, especially names of property, unusual family names that keep re occuring, unusual occupations etc let me know sometimes these give another clue to the family you belong to. Also any information about their connection to Tipperary.
Send me your email and I will send you the pedigree etc

1. Martin Staunton Kirwan Esq. of Blindwell J.P, D.L b. may 1802
2. James Kirwan d.30/5/1865
3. Thomas Staunton Kirwan now of Blindwell
4. William Kirwan d.15/6/1864 noteKirwan, William; Blindwell Galway; Cork Examiner (COR IRL); 1864-6-24
5. Catherine Kirwan d.13/1/1866
6. Charotte Kirwan d.1874
7. Margaret Kirwan a nun
P.S I sent you the same answer to genealogy.com but I wanted to add that Matthias is a name that pops up in the Kirwan's, not in the blindwell family but in the a family of merchants who lived not that far, I would need to look up my notes to see what I have
