Hi I am trying to find any details on my Great Grandfather Thomas Falvey and his ancestors in Cork Ireland.

I know he married twice, I do not know the name of his first wife but do know they had two boys a Denis or Tim and a Daniel.

I know more about his second marriage, which is the line I am descended from. He married a Mary Vanston in the Q 30 Jun 1891 and had 7 children with her, Patrick, Denis(Ryner) , Ellen(Nellie), Thomas, James(Dooney) 1903, Elizabeth (Lizzie who moved to Boston and married there to an unknown gent and they had two girls names also unknown) & Humphrey.

I am looking to find Thomas' ancestors, his first wife's name, and the name (Denis or Tim) of their first child and his descendants.

Family have mentioned that Thomas may have been born in Innishannon Co Cork and there are a lot of Falvey's mentioned in Griffiths valuation,who live there. But at the moment I can't get there as all of my Falvey family that I have on record, who did not emmigrate, were from Cork City mainly on the Northside around Farran St, Gerald Griffin St, Shandon St area. Except the two children of the first marriage who I believe lived in Douglas which is on the Southside of Cork City.

Can anyone help? Would love to hear from my other Falvey relatives.

Thanks

Matthew,

The Falveys who came to the US during the potato famine (circa 1847) were all apparently from County Kerry and in particular from Dingle Bay. Therefore, I cannot help you. Sorry.

I was in Melbourne and Brisbane two weeks ago and as usual I looked in the phone book to see if any Falveys were listed. Boy oh boy, did I find a lot of our clan. Actually we are a sept of a famous clan. The other half of the sept is the Shea family. My theory is that the Sheas were warriors and the Falveys were lovers. As a result one can easily find verifiable family crests for the Shea family, but not for the Falveys. O'Falvey in Gaelic means "descendent of the lively one." In Gaelic our name is spelled O'Failbhe, but as I understand, it is pronounced Falvey.

Good luck in your research mate!

I came across your post while researching my family I have a baptismal record from the Innishannon parish. The record is that there is a John Falvey who was a godparent to James Coleman, parents were John Coleman and Mary Hurley, baptism took place 1/20/1850. A second daughter Ellen had godparents as Thomas Falvey and Ellen Coleman, baptism took place 10/8/1852. Hope this helps

Please goto the free website sponsored by Boston College for advertisements for Irish Immigrants and search for Dennis Falvy. You will come up with Dennis seeking info on his two brothers, Jeremiah and John (the latter I got from a pay site) who came to the US around 1844. Dennis cites Inishannon, Cork and Kinalea and Bandon in his posting.

It is unlikely that the John I found and the one cited on the baptismal records you found are the same person. However, with Irish naming traditions it is likely they are related?

Hi. I might be able to help here. At this moment in time i have nothinbg to add but my father and grandfather were both Falvey's, Born and bred in Cork. Unfotunately i did not spot my grandfathers name as one of the 7 children listed as his name was Eamon or better known as "Ned". My father also shared the same name. "Eamon John Falvey" born 1954.
I will see if I can find any information which could help.

My mother is from Bandon, County Cork, Ireland. My GG grandfather was a Daniel Falvey from Bandon. He was married to a Mary O'Donaghue and they had two children that I am aware of:

Daniel Falvey (my great grand uncle) and Mary "Minnie" Falvey (my great grandmother).

Minnie married Thomas Murphy from Bandon and had 3 children including my grandfather Daniel Murphy (named after my GG grandfather Daniel Falvey). My mother is an only child. My great grandparents and GG grandparents are buried in Bandon.

I don't know who my great grand uncle Daniel Falvey married, if he or any of his descendants emigrated anywhere. I would like to hear from anyone who might be connected.

I'm a Falvey and living on the northside of Cork City. We could be related. Unfortunately I can't help you with your research as I've lost contact with that side of my family, sorry. It isnt a very popular name here though.

Hi Ciara, would you be Mick and Jackie's daughter, Timmy & Kitty's Grandaughter? If so you are my 2nd cousin. Or if you are Martin and Deidre's daughter, you are also my second cousin, but be careful they don't want to discuss the family tree.
