Hello, I’m married into the Byrne line from Newfoundland. I haven’t been very successful in my search for the ‘original’ Newfoundland Byrne immigrants but I do know my husband’s grandfather was Samuel J Byrne b 1881. Any connections would be appreciated:) Thank you

Pamela Ann Drake Thank you for this site, as you can see Catherine Murphy Gingras

and I have found each-other and connected; now all we need to do is help each-other find or Irish past, (in Ireland) and we have a good start.

WOOT!  My dear cousin, Sally!  This has been (at least) a decade of genealogy research for me.  What a breakthrough: 3rd cousins, once removed.  I found your 1901 & 1911 Irish Census records for the Byrnes, and spent 5 hours (in typical crazed genealogy fashion) researching Bunclody and Clohamon.

Catherine Gingras I know we are related. I have all the proof we need. I have the birth records for 9 of the children. Three old letters sent to Anne's daughter Grandma Myrtle by her aunt Margaret and Margaret's daughter Maisie Hogan from Bunclody, Ireland. I have taken the info in them little; that it is and traced all the children to snippets of info like what you wrote here about your Sarah. All together they make up a pretty clear picture, especially when added to the records I have found. Sahara's mother was Mary Cuffe of what is now Newtownbarry, Ferns, Ireland.

Hi Sally,

I haven't logged onto Genealogywise in a long time (years?).  Do you really think my Sarah J. Byrne is related to your Byrne's?  If so, I'm totally ecstatic!  I'm going to look at the 1911 Census now.  Thank you so much!

The name of the town was changed to Newtownbarry in recognition of its patron "James Barry, Sovereign of Naas, in recent years Newtownbarry has been restored to its former name Bunclody.

No wonder I find confusing records for the Byrne's of Newtownbarry, Wexford, Ireland.

Shore family from the Wexford Byrne family are buried in the

Calvary Cemetery; County Wexford, Ireland.
