GREENAN--Newry, Co.Down area, mid-1800s
Posted by: Linda Z. O'Halloran Date: September 26, 2000 at 07:56:11
  of 124

I wrote down all the Greenans I could find around the District of Rathfriland, Union of Newry, Co. Down, Northern Ireland, for the years around 1851-1870. This area is covered by 2 Catholic parishes, Clonuff(Clonduff) and Annaclone(Annaghlone) in the Dromore diocese. The parish priest usually spelled the name as Grenan (and sometimes Grinan or once even Genan), but I know it is Greenan, from Civil records that match up with these.

There are 13 couples that I found who were married around 1851-1870 and/or had children baptised during this time. Children are listed under each set of parents.

CLONUFF/CLONDUFF PARISH RECORDS, DROMORE DIOCESE

Here is a list of all Greenan couples I found in this parish:

(spons. John McCumiskey & Catherine Sheals.)
c. James bapt. 13 Jul. 1859
(spons. Mick Branigan & Carla? Frances?)

d. Michael bapt. 21 Feb. 1868

e. Bernard born 26 Mar. 1870 (Civil Registration record)

5. JAMES GREENAN & MARY BRANIGAN:
(marriage on 15 May 1851, witnessed by a Patrick Greenan. May have
left the area, since nothing here about their children.)

6. BERNARD GREENAN & CATHARINE(aka ELIZABETH?) BRANIGAN of Cabra(gh):
a. Elizabeth bapt. 18 Nov. 1851 (mother was called "Catherine")
(spons. Edward Morgan & Mary Anne Branigan)

(spons. Catherine Greenan & Michael Branigan)
c. John bapt. 22 Apr. 1858 (mother was called "Elisa")
(spons. Charles Downey & Elisa Branigan)
[Though it's possible that Bernard Greenan was married to 3 separate
Branigan women, I doubt it...seems more likely that his wife was
"Catherine Elizabeth", called Elisa or Elizabeth.]

Hope this helps someone.
