Hi again James, are you sure of your details? I have a Michael Corless born 22/9/1861 with a father William but mother's name is Mary Mullen. These Corless's descendants live near me, but are not related to us. I will keep on looking. Catherine.
Hi James, my apologies for not answering sooner, but your message got lost along the way and I have just come upon it now. Your Corless family would more than likely have come from Co.Galway, and there were a lot of them between Tuam Co Galway and Kinvarra in south Galway, Corless is really a Co.Galway name. I will have a look and see what I can find and I will get back to you. Catherine Corless
