Looking for other Connolly's from Ireland.

Journal by Christianne

I am researching my family history and would like to find out if there are any other Connolly's from County Wicklow Bray in Ireland. I was prompted to do this when I saw someone on the TV with the same name as me, could anyone help?
There could well be others from our 'clan' that have also moved to England, Im not sure.

Stephanie,

In the 1910 New York, (12 district) Census, my great Grandmother's brother, Eugene Connolly, said that the family was "Irish English." All the other census records that I've found for Eugene, my great grandmother, Elizabeth Anne Connolly, and Great Grand Aunt Maria/Mariah Connolly say that they were from Ireland. So I assume, at least at the time of Eugene's birth, they were Irish living in England. If that's the wrong assumption to make, somebody please correct me. From the oral history, our family is supposed to be from Bantry Bay, Cork, but that could be through my GG grandfather John Francis Poole 's side of my family, or my GG Grandmother, Margaret Connolly's side. There are double Poole - Connolly marriages on that side of the family, in two different generations. The death certificate information on Elizabeth Ann Connolly and Eugean Connolly say that their parents were Cornelius Connolly and Elizabeth Carey. I recall a conversation my parents had with my grand aunts, Mary Elizabeth/Mae and Veronica Poole when I was a child where they were discussing either one of the Poole or Connollys coming from Liverpool, England in the as a young boy alone, and something about him possibly stowing away on a ship. I think the stowing away part was an item for conjecture.

Christianne,
You are looking for Connollys from Bray Co Wicklow? I am researching Connollys from the Calary area of Co Wicklow- that is about 15 miles from Bray. During my research I have come across records for Connollys baptised and married in the Bray parish in the 1800's. If you let me know who you are researching from Bray and when they lived there I could check to see if I have any records of interest to you.

My great grandparents came over from Ireland to England to work in London City Mission. They were Irish speaking but refused to use the language from that point on as it was perceived as being the language of commoners and the lower classes and it's use thus frowned upon by society. My great grandfather was from Wicklow but moved to Kerry before coming to England.

Hi, I'm one of the Connollys from this area, what are you interested in knowing? Calary isn't 15 miles from Bray it's only about 2 miles away at most. Who did you see on TV and if possible is it on youtube or online somewhere?
