Talking Here we go again.

I've just been going backwards and sideways, to clarify and find the right rellies in Oxfordshire.
I have just stumbled across a Thomas Kenedy marrying a Catherine Allnot in Oxford, and their 1st child being baptised in Towersey, Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire.

Catrina Canedy(Ceanedey) in 1736.

She is a twig on a branch, so not that excited really.

My question is, how do I access Irish records for the early 18th century.

I wonder of J.F.K's family would know.

Descendant of cinnéididh' (helmeted-head); the name of at least two families in ireland: (1) Ó c. of ormond, a branch of the dál gcais, who derive their name and descent from cinnéidigh, son of donnchuan the brother of brian boru. they were originally seated at glenomra, coextensive with the present parish of killokennedy, in the east of co. clare, but on being driven thence at an early period by the o'briens and macnamaras, they settled in tipperary, in the baronies of upper and lower ormond, where they became very numerous and far more powerful than they had ever been in their ancient home in thomond. from the 12th to the 16th century, they ranked as lords of ormond, and were divided into three great branches, viz: Ó c. fionn (the fair), Ó c. donn (the brown), and Ó c. ruadh (the red). (2) Ó c. of clann cearnaigh, a branch of the ui maine, in co. galway. the name is now very common throughout ireland, (Sloinnte Gaedheal is Gall )

Re: Here we go again.

Yes I have that problem too and I'm a descendant of that clan too amongst others. Mine are not twiggs on my branches mine are direct lines, I suppose getting back to abt 1766 Co Cork was a feat in it's self

Re: Here we go again.

Yes, their huge array of census records and parish registers, Irish records are easy to search (Biggest hint of sarcasm ever).

Re: Here we go again.

There are 4 or 5 Kenedy's and variants of that name in the Oxford marriage index, and I think one of them was a cleric or priest/vicar.
The problem is there seem to be no occupations listed in the parish records.

I'll have to investigate him to see if that was the case, but that's another step outside my tree.

I've gone back a 100 years beyond census almost, and I'm almost at the point of a fruitless search for any confirmation of real and close connections. But one must try, musn't one.

For almost 30 years, a fellow Ives from Oxfordshire, has been trying to link the Buckinghamshire Ives to the Oxfordshire Ives.

In a Will of 1701, for my Thomas Ives, he lists and leaves all his Great Missenden properties to his sons and daughters, and names all them. But then he leaves his 'properties in Oxfordshire' to his daughters only.......property unnamed.

He did buy some property from the John Hampden estate(of the Civil war fame), around 1690. John Hampden(of Hampden) married Elizabeth Symeon in 1619 in Pyrton, Oxfordshire. So I wonder if the properties in Oxfordshire came through the marriage to his wife.

Anyway......I off back to my PR's and go back and see what other nightmares I can find. Hopefully, I might end up coming forward in time, but who knows.
