Irish pedigrees

I will gradually load a number of pedigrees from the Irish sides of my family. This work is ongoing. Some of the details remain unverified due to loss of sources or insufficient data. If you have rigorous research which will add to my information, please contact me.

I do have a large amount of information about descendants and ancestors of these people. What is on this website is only a fraction of the available material.

Belford pedigree (Fermanagh, Inisclin). My Scottish ancestors from Perthshire are also on this pedigree. My direct ancestors were James Belford and Mary Anderson, not the later descendants shown here. If you have research which shows the origins of the earliest Belfords (Balfourd/Balfour) and Marshalls, I would be very interested to hear of it. Some of these Belfords migrated to NSW. Some Marshalls also emigrated, but I've yet to find them.

Belford descendants. The same family as above, but shown from the other end. Also see the Australian rels page.

William Belford's descendants. Son of James Balfour and Mary Marshall, and brother of my gt gt grandfather James Belford. Some of his progeny moved to Australia, these to Queensland.

Henry Lambert, M.P. for New Ross, Carnagh, Wexford, my gt gt gt grandfather. He is one of the family mysteries. He married Catherine Talbot in 1835 and had several children. However my gt gt grandfather Henry Lambert (1805-1879) was his son by one Mary Walsh, whom he never married. Henry's death certificate suggests he was born in 1815, but in fact we have found his baptismal record for 1805.

We are sure these details were hushed up, as Henry Lambert jnr left Ireland for England c. 1835, and was forced to give up his inheritance as eldest son. To add insult to injury, Henry and Catherine's first son was named Henry Patrick Lambert. I (and my cousins) would love to know more about Mary Walsh, and if it exists, info about Henry Lambert Jnr's early life.

Another family mystery is that for several decades in the English censuses, a Georgina Levinge was living with Henry Lambert jnr and his wife Anne Elizabeth Spencer. Georgina was born in Dublin in the 1820s to George Levinge (who died in 1825) and Margaret Louisa Gray (1791 - 1877), and died c. 1904 at Bognor. She's always listed as a visitor, but she chaperoned the youngest daughter to Yorkshire when Anne Spencer died in 1891, and was a witness to Henry Lambert jnr's will. There HAS to be more to this than meets the eye. Would love to hear from relatives of Margaret Louisa Gray who had 4 marriages, and was born in co. Offaly, Ireland to Owen Wynne Gray and Elizabeth Philpot.

Mary Anne Lattin, daughter of George Lattin and Catherine O'Ferrall is my gt x 4 grandmother, and married Patrick Lambert of Wexford, (father of Henry Lambert) in 1781. Mary Anne was one of the last generations of Lattins of Morristown Lattin in co. Kildare, Ireland. I have gleaned a lot of information on the Lattin family from the Journals of the Kildare Archaeological Society, dating from c. 1900.

John Lattin (1598 - 1667) descendants for 5 generations.

Begnet Ball (c. 1623 - 1678) incomplete pedigree, showing her relationship to the early Mayors of Dublin, the Berminghams, the Barnewall family and the Luttrells. This connects with Mary Anne Lattin's pedigree.

McManaway of Castlerea, co. Roscommon, emigrated to New Zealand in the 1840s. Descendants of the earliest names I've found. Also related to McManaways in the USA and Australia, and the family still in Ireland. Would love to hear from the Irish McManaways particularly.

McManaways that emigrated to New Zealand, starting with my gt gt gt grandparents.
