|About Earls Family Tree (2)
I started this Family Tree on a quest to find my connection to McDonalds of Glencoe but discovered as they were Catholic's there was land clearance and persecution on the basis of faith in Scotland during the 1700's so as protection most births, marriages & deaths were left unrecorded and vast numbers emigrated. However, I have traced family back to 1790 approx.
My Earls family have been traced back to Galway in the 1790's. They were Tennent farmers according to The Tithe Applotment Books. Because of the Irish Famine many left for foreign shores never to return again to their homeland. Some family members still remain in the Massachusetts Area of USA.
Whilst some of my Mooney family appear to flourish in Antrim during the Famine years other suffered hard times and it appears my GGGG Grandfather ended up as a destitute and a Beggar in Portglenone, Antrim. My GGG Grandfather emigrated to Dunbartonshire, Scotland but sadly lost many of his children at a young age from Tuberculosis. My GG Grandfather returned to Drogheda early 1900 as a Master Baker with his family including my Grandfather Samuel.
Records in Ireland are extremely if not impossible to trace before 1864 with the added problem of a Custom house fire in Dublin where many records were lost.
