I wonder, Raymond, if you got any satisfaction trying to trace this family? I am distantly related to your other poster, Annette Code. Where she traces her husband's family to William Codd b. 1813 at Aghold/Carnew, I trace my family to Thomas Codd b. 1772 at Cronelea (Aghold.)
The so-called patriarch of the Codd family at Aghold, the person who probably moved the Protestant branch of the family west of Enniscorthy around 1725 was JAMES CODD (c. 1705-1763 buried at Aghold). He and his wife ANN(E) _______ had two daughters baptized at St. Michaels Church of Ireland in Aghold (see. www.yclc.ca/indexzi ) JANE CODD bapt. March 5th 1743 who m. JOHN CONDELL (or CUNDLE - several spellings exist)of Hackettstown in April 1760. ELIZABETH CODD had been born a decade earlier, bapt. Feb. 20 1733 at St. Michaels, and m. a JOHN HAWKINS on May 24th 1754. The Hawkins family lived as Brusseltown (which I have not found) and perhaps Castleruddry, which is north of Hackettstown, and eventually sent sons and grandsons to settle Canada in 1832 wgere tgey probably met up with second geberation CODD emigrants to Canada at East Wawanosh Twp. on the banks on Lake Huron.
But this does not yet suggest how the CODD came came to Hackettstown, which I will now conjecture.JANE abd ELIZABETH had younger brothers, JAMES b. 1751, and THOMAS b. 1747-51(by various reports, but not recorded in the Aghold church ledger.) JAMES (1705-63) died and was buried at Aghold. leaving these two sons, JAMES who would gave been 12 and THOMAS who would have been 12-16 (in 1763). There was no record of their mother, ANN(E) being buried at Aghold. It seems very feasible that JAMES and THOMAS +/- their mother went to live with their older sisters in the Hackettstown area. Records laid down by emigrant JOSEPH CODD, who was a nephew to the sisters mention two cousins, ABRAHAM and EDWARD CODD, for whom there are no records at Aghold.It makes sense that these were the sons of JAMES and/or THOMAS. Further to this HENRY and MARY POLLARD are listed as cousins as well, and the POLLARD name appears frequently at Hackettstown (but not at Aghold) where a HENRY was seen as a member of the loyalist militia during the Rebellion of 1798. Further to this, but still to be investigated further, a HENRY and a MARY POLLARD are recorded as dying in Ontario - and a THOMAS CODD was seen to emigrate to Canada (Bowesville, Ontario) likely with the family of CAPT. WILLIAM JOHN FREEMAN who came from the Kiltgan area just south of Castleruddry in Wicklow County.
The bottom line here is that if you know about earlier generations of the family of WILLIAM CODD of Hackettstown, probably a lot of history could be pieced together.We are always tempted to be brief in posting, but posting extended family connections are what really makes history begin to unravel.May I invite you to do so.
