Genealogy of the O’Cormacain Family of Thomond by John P. McCormack

Census of Ireland 1659

From "A Census of Ireland, circa 1659" by Petty (Dublin, 1939)

(NOTE: This survey is not complete. There are several Counties missing, one of them being Co. Galway, and there are also baronies missing from some counties. Also, the survey was conducted by English people, some of whom knew the Irish language and some did not. Consequently, the listing of Irish names, and their spelling, varies from place to place. Many nick-names and the usual Irish descriptive names, such as "oge" (young), "beg" (small), "buidhe" (yellow or blonde, usually anglicised as 'boy'.), etc., in many cases appear in the listings as family names. For instance, you might find a Barony with a dozen "boy" families, several "oge" families, etc. There are no families of our name listed for co. Clare. Yet we know they were there. It is very exasperating!)
