Irish Family History and Genealogy
with curious news and notes from Ireland.

Notes This Week:
What’s happening today at the Irish Roots Cafe

1) A note on Buchanan from Bill Buchanan.
Family Website
I have enjoyed your “Irish Roots Cafe” podcast from the beginning. You
really have the personality to make it entertaining as well as informative.
You asked us if we have websites on Irish families in America. I have one
on my Buchanan family that contains genealogy, old stories, some photos,
and free e-books about the family.

The Famine: Tyrone to Canada
In 1847 during the peak of the great famine, Andrew and Jane Buchanan
and their 8 (mostly grown) children left Binnawooda townland in Tyrone
for Canada.

Ship Sinks, Grosse Isle Full
The ship nearly sank in a storm and had to return for repairs.
On the second attempt, they reached Canada but like so many ships, a
plague of “immigrant fever” had broken out onboard.

Quarantine
The official quarantine station on Grosse Isle, Quebec was already
overwhelmed, so they were quarantined onboard for 3 weeks at
Kingston, where Andrew and an infant granddaughter died. The family
settled in the unsurveyed wilderness that later became Elma Township,
Perth County, Ontario, where it grew and prospered. From there it spread
out to Manitoba and Washington State, and far beyond.

Clan DNA
A YDNA study found that we were of “a typical chiefly line of Clan
Buchanan”. These chiefs traced their ancestry back to Annselan
O’ Cahan son of King Dermond O’ Cahan, who reigned in Ulster
province, and was a descendant of the ancient kings of Ireland.

O’Cahan it is
(The O’Cahans ruled the kingdom of Coleraine, now in County Derry.)
Anselan landed in Argyll, Scotland in 1016 with some followers and
helped Scottish King Malcolm II to repel Danish invaders, and was
granted the Buchanan lands in Lennox, from which his descendants
took their name.

So my Buchanans were of ancient Irish descent as well as more
modern Irish descent.

Do you have any suggestions for researching my family at their earliest
known Irish “address”, Learmore Townland (2 miles west of Castlederg),
County Tyrone, in the 1810s?

Todays Podcast extract is from:
A few bars from  very nice song from the Irish Song podcast.

We publish more Irish genealogy books than anyone in the world !

Book of the Month:

1)  Names in the Land Grants, (hardbound, gold stamped book)
http://www.irishroots.com/id4446.htm
This book is also a part of the ‘Conquest of Ireland’ series.
The information is divided into these sections:

Land Grants for the English (Undertakers), complete with names.
Land Grants for the Scottish (Undertakers), complete with names
Land Grants for the Servitors, complete with names
Land Grants to the Native Irish, complete with names

The names of specific persons and specific locations in the land grants is
of immense interest to family researchers. The wealth of information in
the footnotes brings daily history to life for us all. The land grants are of
differing lengths, and one short example in Co. Tyrone follows:

1) “Grant to Neale OQuin, gent., Ballineloughy, one balliboe, containing 60
acres. Rent, 13 s.”

2) Name Changes
We also find many notations on family names and the spelling of the
same. Take the name Smelhome on the land record, which this book
also tells us is found as Smailholme in Scotland, and as Smethorne in
an inquisition in 1629. Take the name of ‘Cooke’, which was an alias of
‘Gray’ for one settler; and the name Calefield which was also spelled as
Caulfield. Very helpful information if you are trying to trace someone in
the family.

3) We are not left with only the dry ‘census’ type information here.
Take the example of Sir Richard Waldron, who is given with lands in
the Precinct of Loughtee, in County Cavan. Below the listings of his lands
we find footnotes telling us that Richard was the son of John Waldron,
that he became a knight, that there is record of a petition from him in
1610, and that his son, Thomas Waldron came to live on the land there
as well. This type of commentary is often given on families found in the
records.

Eugene Horan (as above)

Related Spellings of the Name
O’Horan, Horane, Haran, Haren, Harhan, Haughran, Horin, Horn, etc..

Varient Spelling Groups:   #914, #2387
From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name Horan:

Families of the name of Horan, etc.. may spring from one of
several origins in Ireland.
Keatings History finds O’Horan, a clan of the Ui Mani, in Galway.
They were centered in the Galway/Mayo areas, and remain near
there to this day.  This is likely the origin of our members Horan
family, don’t you think ?
The family name is also found in the 1659 census of Ireland
centered in Kildare, and also spelled as Horane elsewhere.
Our Birth Index of Ireland also shows 63 births of the name in the
19th century…(continued in the Book of Irish Families, great & small)

Book of the Month:

1)  A Special census of Ireland, Pynnars Survey
This Book Includes Rare Land Owner Records and Historical
Notations Including Counties Armagh, Tyrone, Donegal, Cavan,
and Fermanagh, with notes on Londonderry (Derry).

What it is
It was originally compiled as a result of the 17th century plantation
of Ireland (1609+). A landholders census record, it set about to give
us the results of the ‘planting’ of families from outside Ireland onto
Irish lands. Here, Pynnar gives us the name and condition of
Undertakers, servitors, and principal natives on these Ulster lands.
The footnotes by Hill are of particular note, at times bringing updates
into the 19th century.

Some of the Families
This volume is very useful, to historians and family researchers today.
There are too many families and specific plots of land to mention,
but here are a few of the families with multiple listings in this work:
Acheson; Alexander; Bingley; Beresford; ODonnelly; O’Boyle; Browne;
Chichester; McCaffery; Butler; McBryan; Cole; Dillon; Hamilton  (30 listings); Moore; Maguire; Oneale; OReilly; Stewart; Richardson; Wilson; Wray
and hundreds more…..

Todays extract on Strafford:
“An order to restore the estate was issued by the Earl of Strafford, when
Lord Lieutenant of Ireland…. This order formed the 6th article of
impeachment against Strafford on his trial in 1642.’’  This was noted in a
land case involving Richard Roulstone and the Plantation of Settlers in
Ulster in the 17th century.  Also mentioned are Moore and Tatton and
Boucher, and Wigson, and O’Quinn, and Swinfin, etc…
Note the date of  the trial given above, which is near the onset of the civil
war in Ireland, which saw many Irish leaving Ireland in exile by the end
of that century.
