Carrolls, Ryans, Gleason in Co Tipperary and or Co Limerick 1820s


I write this with little expection of a reply.

Family myth about my maternal garndfather’s family (Carroll) from Co Tipperary has it that if I am ever in the Tipperary / Limerick area and come across Ryans or Gleasons that they will be related to me..

My grandfather Meredith Francis Carroll (O’Carroll is long dead (18/01/1893 - 17/12/1957)) as his father Thomas Carroll (c 1853 – 13/10/1919). Francis called his older sons:

Michael Thomas (25/08/1883 Crossmolina Co Mayo – 22/09/1919 South Africa)

Thomas Patrick (24/07/1888 Co Tipperary – 30/01/1961 New York USA)

Michael and Patrick are names of their mother’s male family members, with the double use of Thomas maybe indicating that Thomas’s ( born 1853) father was also called Thomas?

Meredith and Francis are not in their mother’s family names.

Are there any desendents of a Thomas Carroll (born c 1820 in Co Tipperary who married a lady called Ryan or Gleason, who may have either come from Co Tipperary or Co Limerick?

I know that Thomas (born 1853) was in the Royal Irish Constabulary (R.I.C.)
and because he was under 5 feet 9 Inches had to have relations already in the Police. Maybe a Ryan or a Gleason?

A you can see the queat may be futile but her goes.

Thanks for reading
