Journal of the Cork Historical and Archaelogical Society


The Journal of the Cork Historical and Archaelogical Society (founded 1891) contains many genealogies and notes on particular families. The genealogies are of wealthy families or those of historical interest. However Richard Henchion's series of Cemetary Inscriptions in JCHAS also contains notes on 'ordinary' families in the various localities.

Copies of JCHAS can be found in major universities worldwide. Among the genealogies and notes on families in JCHAS are:
Barry of Barrymore, Besnard, Edmund Burke, Carew, Cotter of Rockforest,
Cramer/Coghill, O Crowley of Coill t-Sealbaigh, Denny, Drew, Galweys of
Munster, Healy of Donoughmore, O Hurly, Kingston,Lavallin, Limrick, Long
of Muskerry and Kinalea, O Mullane of Whitechurch, Murphy of Muskerry, O
             Mahony of Kinelmeaky and Ivagha, O Regan of Carbery, O Hea of SW Cork, Penrose,

of Edmund Spenser, Stout of Youghal, Uniackes of Youghal, Trant,
