Francis (Frank) FINNIGAN [Parents] was born in Ireland. He died in U.S.. Francis married Lucy 'UNKNOWN'.

Other marriages:
'UNKNOWN', Margaret

When Frank emigrated to the United States, he changed his surname to Finnigan because of spelling and pronunciation difficulties the non-Irish had with the Finucane name.

Lucy 'UNKNOWN' died in probably U.S.. Lucy married Francis (Frank) FINNIGAN.

A Francis Finucane of Ballyhorgan, Lixnaw, Co. Kerry married a Lucy Steles in Lixnaw on 12 February 1834. Could this Lucy have been our Lucy above? Witnesses to the marriage were Simon Beasly and Michael King. This Francis and Lucy who married in 1834 had a son named John who was baptised on 19 June 1837. On John's baptismal record on www.irishgenealogy.ie, Lucy's surname is Styles and the family's address is Ballygologue, Listowel, Co. Kerry.

Other marriages:
'UNKNOWN', Lucy

When Frank emigrated to the United States, he changed his surname to Finnigan because of spelling and pronunciation difficulties the non-Irish had with the Finucane name.

Margaret 'UNKNOWN' was born in Ireland. She died. Margaret married Francis (Frank) FINNIGAN.

They had the following children.

  F i Margaret FINNIGAN was born on 10 Apr 1846. She died on 26 Nov 1919.

John FINUCANE was born in 1754 in Carhoonakineely, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He died about 1803 in probably Carhoonakineely, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Kilnaughtin Cemetery, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. John married Catherine (Kate) LYNCH.

According to William (Bill) Hudson's work 'The Hudsons of County Kerry and their Descendants' (written in 1960 and available in the National Library of Ireland in Dublin and in Tralee and Listowel libraries in Co. Kerry), our Finucane family is connected to the family of John above who, sometime in the 19th century, divided his large farm in Ardmore between two sons [no names are given]. One of these sons was the grandfather of Pat Finucane of Farranawanna who helped Bill with his Finucane research in the late 1950s. Pat told Bill that his (Bill's) great-grandmother (who was my great-great-great grandmother) Margaret Finucane was a sister of the two sons who got the land in Ardmore, and therefore a daughter of John above. Unfortunately no documented evidence has been found to support this.

Other Finucane research has been carried out by Brian and Kieran Sheehan from Dublin on the family history of their Finucane ancestors from Ardmore, Carhoonakinella (presumably a variant of Carhoonakineely). This Finucane family is the same as that of John above who divided his land between his sons as it includes Pat Finucane of Farranawanna. However, Brian and Kieran are not aware of a connection between their family and our Margaret Finucane.

Further doubt arises from the fact that 'The Hudsons of County Kerry' also tells us that it is possible that Margaret was a daughter of (perhaps another?) John Finucane who lived in Ardmore around the same time but whose only known children were John and possibly Francis. Given the Ardmore connection, they may be the same family as the Finucanes described in the first paragraph above. However, John, son of John and possible brother of Francis, emigrated to the United States whereas John, son of John who divided the land, remained in Ireland. It is possible that Margaret is related to one or both of these families but I am unable to make a definite connection. If anyone has any further information on any Finucane family from Carhoonakineely, I would be very grateful if you would get in touch by emailing Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com. Thank you.

Catherine (Kate) LYNCH was born in Coolnanoonagh, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. She died. Catherine married John FINUCANE.

A Thomas Finucane and his wife, Mary Connor, raised a family in Carhoonakineely. It is possible that he was connected to Kate above and her husband, John. In case they are related, we can tell you that Thomas and Mary had at least four children: Patrick (born in 1829), John (1832), Catherine (1836) and Thomas (1840).

They had the following children.

  M i John FINUCANE was born in 1795. He died in 1850.
  M ii Thomas FINUCANE died in possibly 1849.
  M iii
Daniel (Dan) FINUCANE was born in Ardmore, Carhoonakineely, Tarbert, Co. Kerry.

We have no further information on Dan although there is a Daniel Finucane listed in Griffith's Valuation (1851/52) who jointly leased land in Carhoonakineely with a John Finucane.

We also know (from www.irishgenealogy.ie) that a Daniel Finucane of Ardmore, Carhoonakineely who was married to an Ann Langan had at least four children (all born in Ardmore): Margaret (born in 1824), Thomas (1828), Daniel (1831) and Hanora (1834). There was also a Daniel Finucane of 'Carhunakinela' who was married to a Mary Buckley and who had sons named Patrick (born in 1844) and Michael (1845).  Could one of these Daniels be Dan above?

Thomas FINUCANE [Parents] was born in Ardmore, Carhoonakineely, Tarbert, Co. Kerry. He died in possibly 1849. Thomas married Mary QUINN.

According to Bill Hudson's work 'The Hudsons of County Kerry and their Descendants', a John Finucane of Ardmore in Carhoonakineely in Tarbert divided his large farm between two sons [no names were given], one of whom died in 1849 and was the grandfather of Pat Finucane (1885-1963) of Farranawanna who gave the above information to Bill. Thomas above was Pat's grandfather so we can say that Thomas inherited a portion of his father's land. We know that Thomas had two brothers, John (1795-1850) and Dan (1810-?), but we do not know who received the remaining parcel of land.

Mary QUINN died. Mary married Thomas FINUCANE.

There is a problem with the dates of birth of Mary and Thomas's children below. If Thomas was born in 1818 then the year of birth (1828) of Daniel is incorrect. Although it would have been possible for Thomas to have had children in 1869 and 1886 (Maria and Margaret), it would not have been possible for Mary to have given birth over a period of nearly five decades, assuming Patsy's year of birth (1839) is correct. Also, since it is possible that Thomas died in 1848, he could not have had children born in 1869 and 1886.
