Found - John Driscoll (abt 1832) Rineen, Castlehaven
Posted by: Kerry Driscoll (ID *****1832) Date: June 06, 2012 at 09:51:43
  of 1388

My luck was in.
My ancestral search was successful. My G Grandmother Annie Driscoll (1868) Rotherhithe, London, was the daughter of John Driscoll and Catherine Neill of Rineen, Carrigtishane, or near Castlehaven. Their children's births are recorded in the Castlehaven and Myross Parish records between 1855 and 1862 before they left for the Thames where four more children were born. Rineen is in the Griffiths valuation as Island and John is recorded in 1852 as the tenant for Beamish.
Children are Thomas (1855), Mary (1857), James (1858), Catherine , Johanna, Ellen, Ann, Laura, Margaret and Bridget (the last 4 were the Rotherhithe births).
I would love to hear from anyone who has links to the above people, particularly Thomas. He was a barge builder who married Susan Dudley and must have either emigrated or returned to Ireland.
