Re: Kirkwood surname in Corkley

In Reply to: Kirkwood surname in Corkley by Mona of 624

Corkley is a townland in either the parish of Keady, or Armagh.

I searched the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,000,000 surviving rcds for abt 65% of Irish counties. Rcds are increasingly sparse B4 1840. Rare B4 1800.

For James Kirkwood B 1860 +/- 4 yrs in Co. Armagh, I found 0 B rcds. The closest is in 1875. His father was not named Samuel. This date is probably too late for your timeline.

Expanding the search to all Ireland, I get similar results.

The Kirkwood surname seems Scots-Irish. B/M/D registration for protestants was civil after abt 1856. Suggest you contact the Public Record Office for Norther Ireland for its rcds: google PRONI to lead you to its database.

Google the Foundation's name to lead you to this database. Pls post your search results to this genforum msg.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
