Marnellsgrove is in Kilcroan parish in Co. Galway. I am interested because my g-g-g-grandfather was herd there for the landlord. So far as I know, there are no blood ties between Larkins and Marnells.

Hi,
I just read your information about the Marnell family of Galway Co. Do you know anything about a Mary Marnell who's parents we believe are Edward and Bridget (Ryan) Marnell? She was married to my husband's greatgrandfather and we can not seem to find her anywhere.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you

Tony,

Don't know if it will help, but I remember seeing a Flax seed allocation to the Marnell's of Galway in the 17xx's? I'll have to check my notes further if you are interested.

Dear Irene: I was in contact with you a few years ago. My Marnells are from the North of Ireland, Lisburn, Belfast, Lurgan areas. I don't know if I would be related. Do you know of any sites online to check Irish dates such as Births,deaths or marriages. The only ones I can find are very complicated. Thanks, Mary

Hello Tony, I see you are still searching for info. on Marnellsgrove. I contacted you a few years ago. Marnellsgrove was a house and farmland belonging to Edmund Marnell. I have a copy of his Will dated 1792. His ancestors had been transplanted by Cromwell in 1654 to Galway near the border with County Roscommon. The family had, until then occupied a small castle and 800 acres of land in County Tipperary near to the border with County Kilkenny. The remains of the castle are still visible to this day. I was there last week. It was called Lisnambrock Castle (gaelic for Fort of the Badgers). Marie

Hello Irene, We lost touch some years ago. Probably due to several house moves on my part and a new Email address. I was pleased to see you are still searching your Marnell roots.I am too but at a much leisurely pace. I am now retired and doing quite a lot of travelling although I was in Ireland last week, poking around graveyards in County Tipperary. I hope to keep in touch with you this time. I was interested in your mention of flax seed for the Galway Marnells. Marie.
