County Mayo

Castlebar (Aglish Parish)

Surname Flannery


The first known record of a County Mayo Flannery came from the "The Search for Missing Friends: Irish Immigrant Advertisements Placed in the Boston Pilot", volume III 1854-1856, edited by Ruth-Ann Harris and Emer O'Keefe.  The following ad appeared on 19 August 1854:

    "Of Martin and Bridget Flanry (sic), of co Mayo, Castlebar parish; when last heard from in March '52, were at N Orleans, La.  Information to be sent to John Flanry, 39 China Alley, Baltimore, Maryland."

Flannery Clan Central Archives records Flannerys from the Griffith's Vaulation, taken in 1854 in Aglish parish, now called Castlebar. See a full listing (including non-Flannerys) of Griffith's Valuation for Castlebar, County Mayo, courtesy of Pat Deese's outstanding "Deese Links" site.

Nineteen (19) Flannerys were listed at that time.  The reader may use his own discretion to determine if those Flannerys from Co. Mayo found in Baltimore, Maryland in the mid-1850s are derived from or related to these families.  (In other words, the author has not yet proven a connection!)

Other Castlebar records:


In Castlebar, Aglish parish, Co. Mayo, in 1824, only three Flannerys were noted in the Tithe Applotment Books (also see Flannery Clan Central Archives).
