The following taken from James Frost, History of Clare (1893).
[Forfeitures and Distributions]-

Dysert parish, p 471-
Ballybrody townland-
Proprietor in 1641: Flann O’Kerin.
Stolen from him and transferred to Earl of Inchiquin.

Footnotes to Dysert parish on p 473:
In 1659, Killeenan townland occupied by Flann O’Kerin (as tenant).

In 1664, Ballyteernan townland occupied by Teige O’Kerin (as tenant).

In October 1641, Connell O’Kerin was a proprietor of Oankeagh (Ooankeagh) townland.
The English stole it from him and transferred Oankeagh (Ooankeagh) to the Earl of Inchiquin and Lord Clare.

In 1659, Dermot O’Kerin occupied Oankeagh (Ooankeagh) townland as a tenant.
Compare 1688.

In 1664, the Subsidy Rolls (whatever those might be) for Ruan show Dermot O’Kerin as tenant of Ballymacrogan townland, Ruan.
Compare 1688.
Compare 1843 and 1852.
[End of Forfeitures and Distributions]

1659. A rudimentary census of (the former) Dysert parish shows-
Dermott O’Kerrin, townland of Owen containing 20 people, all Irish.
Teige O’Kerrin, townland of Gleans, 32 people, all Irish.
Flann O’Kerrin, townland of Killenane, 50 people, all Irish.
[1659 census of Clare, Barony of Inchiqine]
Parts of the former parish of Dysert now are found in the parish of Ruan.

1678. Teige Kearin.
Will of Capt William Neylon of Disert, Clare, April 1678.
To Teige Kearin, the lands of Glane until he has been paid £30 due to him.
[Ainsworth, no 1491]

1682. Patrick Kerin.
Witness to a lease by John McDonogh of Ballykeel, Kilfenora, 5 May 1682. Witnesses, Francis McDonogh, Cor (Cornelius?) McDonogh, John Cassie, Patrick Kerin, John MacNemera.
[John Ainsworth (ed), Inchiquin Manuscripts, no 1193]

1685. Teige O’Kerin. Tomb in Ennis Abbey.
“ Here lies the body of Teige OKerin of Glean who dyed the 26 of January in the yeare 1685. This stone was set up by Thady Kerin son to the said Teige”.
Not recorded by James Frost, History of Clare (1893).
Brian ODalaigh, T J Westropp’s Notes on the Discoveries at Ennis Abbey 1893, in volume 43, The Other Clare (2019), at p 25-
“ The O’Kerin slab had been moved higher up the wall and the north windows opened”.
Compare 1664.

1688. Donnagh O’Kerin.
Inscription in the old church at Ruan:
This chapel and tomb were erected by Donnagh O’Kerin the son of Dermot O’Kerin of Owan for his and his posterities use in the year of Our Lord God 1688.
[Courtesy Frances O’Halloran of Ruan.
See also Frost, p 139]
As recorded by T J Westropp in 1897, the spelling was different. The chapel and tomb were erected by Donough O’Kerine the son of Dermot O’Kerine of Owen.
“ Owan” or “Owen” might be any of Ooankeagh; Nooan, or Ruan, or an obsolete place name, or perhaps somewhere else, e.g. Barony of Owney in Tipperary.
Compare 1664; 1704;1774; 1834, and 1864.

1690. D Kerin.
The list of persons summoned to go to Cork to aid the cause of James II, includes D Kerin of Inchiquin Barony. [James Frost, History of Clare (1893), pp 562-4]
Perhaps Donnagh O’Kerin.

1699. Teige O’Kearine and John O’Kearine.
Teige O’Kearine, tenant at Glaninteragh, manor of Inchiquin.
John O’Kearine, tenant at Ballylearnane, manor of Inchiquin.
[Ainsworth, Inchiquin Manuscripts (Rentals and Accounts), 1541, p 546]
“ O’Kearine” seems a phonetic rendition of the Gaelic name, O’Ceirin.

c1700. Teige Kerin and Gulliduff Kerin.
Teige Kerin, tenant at Ballyasshie; and Inchicnolught, and Mogowny.
Gulliduff Kerin, tenant at Derryuollogh/ Derryolagh.

Compare 1420, 1688 and 1864.

c1734. Terence Kerin, attorney, Court of Exchequer.
[Kings Inns Admissions Papers, p 267]
See WikiTree, Terence Kerin bc 1696. Married Everetta/Uretta Parker, at least a son, a daughter and a granddaughter. Will 1771, Probate 1780, Dublin.
See 1721 and 1768.

1739 (perhaps 1759). Terence Keren, Junior, of Ennis. Registration of land leased at Castlekeal, Clare.
[Crossle Genealogical Abstract, 1739]
“ Junior” suggests he is son of Terence.

1740. Elizabeth Kerin born, at Aghrim (?Aughrim).
Date is a guess.
Daughter of Timothy Kerin and Mary Fitzgerald (aunt of Prime Serjeant Fitzgerald).
Possible sister of Rev John Kerin, vicar of Killury, Kerry.
Timothy Kerin was not a convert from Popery, but James Fitzgerald (then 3rd Serjeant-at-Law) was a convert in 1779.
She married Constans Curtin (c1735-1809) [according to George Unthank Macnamara, Pedigree of MacCurtins of Dysert (1898)].

Sister Ellinor Thyn (nee McDonogh).
Brother Martin McDonogh.

[Betham Genealogical Abstract, 1760, no 126, pages 51-2]
Hillsborough, see 1760, 1784, 1797 and 1807. Perhaps Hillsborough House, in or near Aughrim Kelly, parish of Dysert.
Thyn, see Thynne 1797. Possibly relevant, Mary O’Loghlen (d1751), daughter of Charles O’Loghlen [grave inscription in Kilshanny Cell Church near Ennistymon]. Mary married John Thynn, son of Augustin, who died 1720. Augustin was the son of Jeremiah who died in 1717.
Daniel McDonogh bc 1712 at Toonagh, died October 1790 [Ennis Chronicle, 11 January 1790]. Daughter Mary McDonogh, born Toonagh, distributor of stamps at Ennis [Ennis Chronicle, 22 August 1796] until replaced by M Canny [Ennis Chronicle, 16 September 1805], died unmarried June 1805 [Clare Journal, 1 July 1805; Limerick Gazette, 4 July 1805]. Possible brother or cousin of Margaret McDonogh of Toonagh who married Hugh O’Loghlen, died relatively young 1749 [Tombstone, old church yard, Ruan]. Possible great grandfather of Henry McDonogh (1797-1872), distributor of stamps at Ballyvaughan [ Clare Directory, 1862], died 19 March 1872 [The Argus newspaper, Melbourne, 29 June 1872; The Australasian, 6 July 1872], who married Eliza Shone (c1802-1886) grandniece to Peter O’Loghlen of Clareville House, Burren [The Argus, Melbourne, 9 July 1877 death of John Shone McDonogh]. Peter O’Loghlen of Clareville died 13 September 1823 [Connaught Journal, Galway 18 September 1823; Westmeath Journal, 25 September 1823].

1752. Will of Fr Patrick McDonogh, coadjutor Bishop of Killaloe, 1739-1752.
The detail of the 1752 Will includes bequests to “His Nephews, Michael, John and Timothy Kerin”.
Michael Kerin is also an Executor, and has a son, Joseph.
All these are still living in 1752.
[Archivium Hibernicum, vol. 3 (1914), pp. 190-92]
It follows that their mother is a daughter of Craven McDonogh, son of Daniel McDonogh of Ballykeel, Kilfenora.

1752. Patrick McDonogh.
Compare, also from 1752, at the Church of Ireland Kilfenora Cathedral, the inscription, “Here lie the remains of Dr Patrick McDonogh son of the above Donaldus and grandson of the Craven ...”: tomb of Donaldus McDonogh and his wife, Maria O’Connor, 1685. [Kilfenora Cathedral, County Clare Library]
Likely, this inscription refers to Fr Patrick McDonogh, and is slightly awry as he seems a son of Cravan McDonogh, and grandson of Daniel McDonogh.

1753. John Kerin born, later vicar of Killury, Kerry.
[Alumni Dublinenses (1924 edition)]
Trinity College, Dublin, 1773.

See 1779, 1792, 1809 and 1839.

1754. Will of Michael Moran of Ennis, Doctor in Physic. Among the beneficiaries, “Mary Power, daughter of nephew Dominick Power and Ellinor Kerin”.
[Betham Genealogical Abstract]

1754. Michael Kerin.
Six men appointed to serve as applotters of the town taxes, including Michael Kerin.
“ applot” means, to divide into plots or parts for the purpose of collecting tax.
[Corporation Book of Ennis, pp 179, 415.
Seán Spellissy (1996): The Merchants of Ennis. Page 100]

1756. Michael Kerin.
A jury, that included Michael Kerin, appointed a market jury that included Michael Kerin.
[Corporation Book of Ennis, p 186]

1756. Michael Kerin. Grand Jury member of Ennis Corporation (attended 2 meetings).
[Corporation Book of Ennis, pp 407-414]

1757. Patrick Curtin of Dysart and Patrick Kerin of Corofin, executors of the Will dated July 1757 of Constance Davoren of Currafine.
[George U Macnamara, O’Davorens of Cahermacnaughton, Burren, part 2, p 200 (Limerick, 1912-13), footnote 86.
He saw the Will and mentions its provisions]

1757. John Kerin married Elenor Magrath.
[Diocesan and Prerogative Marriage Licences Bonds Index- Diocese of Killaloe]
Compare 1818, another Kerin/ Magrath marriage

1759. Michael Kerin late of Ennis, merchant. Died after July 1759 and certainly before 5 December 1763 and probably before 1762.
Exchequer Bill, 5 December 1763, involving Francis O’Brien of ?Duira, Clare, Donat O’Callaghan of Kilgory and others in dispute.
Mentions Michael Kerin several times, including-
... until July 1759, at which time Michael Kerin late of Ennis in (Clare), merchant, since deceased ... .
[Thrift Genealogical Abstracts]
Compare 1762.
Not Michael Kerin, shoe maker of Ennis, who died 1801. But might be his father, and might be buried in the family vault at Lifford, compare 1845.
Shoe making amounts to a craft or skilled trade, probably requiring apprenticeship, the sort of calling a merchant might arrange for his son.

1760. See 1752.

1762. Michael Kerin of Ennis, deceased. Bond.
[Diocesan and Prerogative Wills and Administrations- Bonds]
Compare 1759.

1767. Thomas Kerin of Cahermore. Probate.
[Phillimore and Thrift, Index to Irish Wills- Killaloe and Kilfenora Wills]
Thomas Kerin of Cahiremore, deceased. Bond.
[Diocesan and Prerogative Wills and Administrations- Bonds]

1768. Andrew Kerin (originally of Hillsborough, but later of Ballyally/ Ballyala/Balliallia) born.
[Graveyard inscription, Templemaley, Barefield]
Father probably not John Kerin of Ballyala, who died 1799.
Brother (according to Betham) John Kerin of Rockview.
Probable brother James Kerin, Surgeon.
Probably, Jane Kerin (who married Andrew Enright/ Enraght in 1799), is not their sister due to anomalies that arise if she was, but might be a close relation.

1768. Patrick Kerin of Corofin, gent.
[Catholic Qualification and Conversion Rolls, 1701-1845, May 1768 via Findmypast.
James Frost, History of Clare (1893), pp 632-35: List of people belonging to Clare who were converts from Popery to the Protestant religion 1702-1789. Abstracted from the Convert Rolls in the Public Records Office, Dublin (before it burnt down)]
See 1773.

1768. Terence Kerin Esq, residence City of Dublin, land at Glenoughleragh, Clare.
[Voters and Freeholders of county Clare, 1768, county Clare Library]
See Terence Kerin bc1696 on WikiTree.
See 1734.

1769. Deed dated 5 January 1769, registered 11 January 1769, between Terence Kerin and Edmond Armstrong, recited that Terence Kerin was seized in fee of 92 acres of the lands of Nooan, subject to a yearly rent payable to the Earl of Inchiquin.
[Landed Estates Court Rentals, 1857, pertaining to the tenancy of Nathaniel Kerin in 1857 of lands of Nooan or Inowen, Ruan]
Evidently, this land was held in fee granted earlier than 1769 to Terence Kerin, Perhaps this descended from Terence Kerin bc1696 to Edmond Kerin who died 7 June 1849, and then to Nathaniel Kerin, suggesting a family relationship.
See 1864.
Plainly, this family held other land in fee but we have not found whereabouts.

1770. John Kerin of Kilsborough, 7 September 1770, Ennis assizes.
[Catholic Qualification Rolls]
Kilsborough might be Hillsborough.

1773. Patrick Kerin.
[Ainsworth, Inchiquin Manuscripts (Rentals and Accounts), 1618; 1619, and 1620. Page 578.]
Patrick Kerin is tenant at three locations, including Cragbrien and Corofin.
The verbiage mentions Dennis Kerin in terms that suggest he is the father of Patrick Kerin, and deceased by 1773.
The verbiage mentions Donough Kerin as if he is a son of Patrick Kerin, living in 1773.
Compare 1742, Cragbrien.
See 1768, 1784, 1785, 1792, Corofin.
Fitzgerald family information suggests that Gerald Fitzgerald of Kilcarragh d1762 and his first wife, Anne Perreau, had a son, Garrett Fitzgerald who married Juliana Kerin, daughter of Patrick Kerin of Corofin.
The original baptism records kept in Clare by the Church of Ireland might show more of this family.

1774. Ellinor Kerin.
Mary Parker, widow and Matthew Ryan Esq., executors of Thomas Parker Esq deceased, Plaintiffs, v. Howlet Parker and Ellinor Kerin, Defendants.
Chancery sale of the lands of Coom-more Barony of Owny and Arra, county Tipperary the estate of the late Thomas Parker.
[Limerick Chronicle, Thursday 6 January 1774]
See Everetta/Uretta Parker, wife of Terence Kerin of Clare and Dublin (the landed Dublin attorney bc 1696).

1774. Ellinor Kerin.
A granddaughter of Terence Kerin, attorney (c1696-1779). Another granddaughter is Elizabeth Kerin.
“ Ellinor Kerin and Elizabeth Kerin, infants, by Terence Kerin, gent, their grandfather, next friend and guardian”.
[Bill entered in Chancery 27 March 1761. Other similar bills in Chancery in 1763, 1768 and 1774]

1775. Jane Kerin, sister in law of Daniel Lysaght late of Ennis whose Will dated 24 December 1775; probate 30 May 1782.
[Betham Genealogical Abstracts 1775]
Compare 1784, Lysaght.

1779. James Kerin, Surgeon, born.
Estimate made well after the event by Cameron.
Maybe James Kerin, Surgeon, born in Clare, rather than Kerry.
[The History of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland by Sir Charles Cameron, published in 1886.]
J.Kerin was born about the year 1779 in the County of Kerry. His father was a farmer and his uncle, the Revd. John Kerin was Rector of Killury in the diocese of Ardfert. His mother was a relation of Sir Colman O’Loughlen, Bart.
See, importantly, 1839.

1779. Dublin.
Died. In Michael’s Lane, Terence Kerin Esq, an eminent attorney.
[Saunders Newsletter, 13 October 1779]
See his entry in WikiTree.

1780. Mrs Kerin’s house, corner of Connell’s Lane.
[Corporation Book of Ennis, p 253]

1780. Timothy Kerin, son of Timothy Kerin farmer, educated by Mr Hare, entered Trinity College Dublin aged 17 years.
[Alumni Dublinenses, p 464]
Though the first edition of Alumni Dublinenses shows Timothy Kerin as father of the student, Timothy Kerin, the handwritten entry gives John Kerin as the father. The student was prepared for Trinity College by Rev Patrick Hare of Cashel, Tipperary, as to whom see WikiTree. Perhaps this John Kerin was a son of Terence Kerin, gent, the “Landed Dublin Attorney”, and this Timothy Kerin a grandson. Granddaughters, as known so far, were Ellinor and Elizabeth. Very likely, Timothy Kerin was a younger son of John Kerin, farmer. The content of Terence Kerin’s Will (made in 1771) does not militate against this understanding, having regard to the rules of primogeniture as applicable to Protestants in Ireland.

In 1783, Anne Powell married William Fitzgerald of Kilcarragh, Clare, son of Francis Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Comyn, the marriage producing two sons, Francis Fitzgerald (1785-1854), and William Fitzgerald (1789-1872

[Limerick Chronicle, 26 October 1839]
See 1779, 1814 and 1842.
James Kerin (c1779-1848), surgeon, President Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland 1833, married (1840) Catherine Staunton (daughter of Michael Staunton of Clare, sister of Michael Staunton the Dublin newspaper man and Lord Mayor, Dublin) died in Dublin, leaving no children.

1839. Surgeon Kerin: Constabulary appointment.
The following paragraph from the Dublin Evening Mail:-
“ Surgeon Kerin has been appointed to the medical office created by the Constabulary Act of the last session.
He is no politician, and as he has filled a similar situation for many years in the General Post Office department, with advantage to the public, we must admit that the appointment is a good one.”
The appointment is an excellent one. There cannot be a better man- in every sense of the word- than Mr Kerin. The Mail is unusually candid, which is the more to be admired in this instance- seeing that the gentleman is a Catholic, and a friend and kinsman of Sir Michael O’Loghlen. Appointments have been made, occasionally, in the police which the Mail found little difficulty praising; but it is very rare indeed for that Journal to commend an appointment so justly acceptable to the public as that of Surgeon Kerin.

[Distressed Estates Collection, County Clare Library, Local Studies Centre- text not accessed]
This indicates that “Inowen” is interchangeable with Nooan, or part of Nooan, in Ruan. See Owen, Owan, in 1659, 1688, 1704 and 1709. If Owen describes the location, Michael Owaen Kerin in 1729 should be understood as Michael Kerin of Nooan.
