William Fanning of Clondoty was married to Catherine Fogarty of Lisheenataggart in Loughmore West Parish Co Tipperary Ireland. Her father was Thomas Fogarty and her mother was Honoria Long. She had a sister Anne Molloy nee Fogarty.

Thomas Fogarty did not have any sons so he bought the Clondoty property off his cousin, also called Thomas Fogarty, and gave it to his daughter Catherine and son-in-law William Fanning.

William and Catherine Fanning at Clondoty and raised their family of fifteen children there. There are still Fanning descendants living at Clondoty today.

These are Fogarty gravestone inscriptions from Loughmore Catholic Cemetery Co Tipperary Ireland. I am not sure how many are related and what the relationships are as yet.

  2. I am trying to trace details of a Michael Fogarty who married a Judith Lahy and had a daughter Magaret born to them and baptised on 8/3/1835. Magarets baptisimal sponsors were Thomas Fogarty and Anne Brennan in Loughmore church [ reg.254] They lived in Clondoty Loughmore. Magaret later married William Hayes ,Ballyerk,Two -Mile Borris,and I believe her brother John and sister Honora lived in Laharden Twomile Borris while another sister Mary married a Thomas Bourke of Rathcunickeen , Two-mile Borris. Magaret Fogarty was my great grandmother.

    1. Hi Patrick,
      I am posting a list of all the Fogartys buried in Loughmore Cemetery and you might get some clues from that.I will add it to Fogartys of Lisheenataggert post.
      In Ireland Judith or Judy was often used for the birth name Johanna so I would look for Johanna Fogarty buried in Loughmore. I also had a look at an ancestry tree and Cornelius Fogarty and his wife Catherine Birmingham who lived at Lisheenataggert had a son Michael born about 1803.Have you had a look at Griffiths Valuations for Loughmore? Can view for free at the Ask About Ireland site. Have you been able to get a copy of Michael Fogartys and Judith Lahys marriage record? That should have their father’s names. Let me know how you get on. regards Kathleen Fanning

  3. I am looking for the ancestors of Catherine Fogarty who was born in Tipperary, Ireland c:1818 and died on 18 Jan 1855. Catherine is buried at St Patricks Catholic Cemetery, Marulan, NSW, Australia who married James Nesbitt on 26 Sep 1842 at St Mary’s Church, Sydney, NSW, Australia. James Nesbitt was born on 9 May 1812 in Tipperary, Ireland and died on 31 Dec 1882 and is also buried at St Patrick’s Catholic Cemetery, Marulan. I am led to believe that James Nesbitt’s mother was Judith Healy that I have no further information on. If you have any information on these Fogarty’s or Healy’s it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanking you in anticipation.
    Kind regards,
    Anne Margaret Nesbitt

  4. I am seeking information regarding
    Hanora Fogarty
    MY 2nd great grandmother Birth abt 1829 in County Tipperary, Ireland Death 04/05/1918 in Nazareth House Ballarat Vic. Australia
    Arrival 1853 17 Jan— Age: 24 Brisbane
    Age: 20
    Possible parents
    Michael Fogarty 1836
    Ireland and Hannah McGrath
    Notes: Emigration to AustraliaHonora Fogarty came to Australia as a house-servant some time before 1856. She was employed by a framing family in the Geelong area. It is beleived that she also had a sister that travelled to Australia. Marriage to Giacomo AuchettoIn about 1858 Honora met Italian immigrant Giacomo Auchetto. Their first first child was born on 10th November 1858, and their marriage solemnised in January 1859. Two more children were born to Honora and Giacomo.
    The Auchetto family established a 10 acre vineyard on a leased property near Geelong, making their living from the sale of both fresh grapes and wine. .

    In April 1864 Giacomo set off on a journey to Colac to sell his produce, but met with an accident near Winchelsea, the dray-cart passing over his abdomen. He died ten days later. .
    Patrick Fitzgerald Soon after the death of Giacomo in 1864 Honora took a another partner, Patrick Fitzgerald. Like Honora, Fitzgerald was born in County Tipperary. Then, at the age of 20 Fitzgerald was considerably younger than Honora.
    From 1864 the Auchetto children were raised under the name of Fitzgerald, later reverting to their correct name after finding out their true father. .

    Additional to the Auchetto children, Honorah bore Fitzgerald five children before they left Mount Moriac in 1869, when their lease expired. .

    Honorah and Fitzgerald took their family to Ballarat, where they tried their hands at mining. Six more children were born in the Buninyong/Ballarat area, last born in 1877 when Honorah was already in her late forties! .

    Honorah finally married Fitzgerald in May 1881! .
    After FitzgeraldPatrick Fitzgerald died 23rd October 1916 at the age of 72. Honorah was left alone, almost 90 years old, in the remote and broken down house at Buninyong, bed-ridden and dying. When her daughter, Catherine Coffey visited from Western Australia she found her covered in bed-sores, with no visitors or family caring for her, and Catherine had her admitted to Nazereth House in Ballrat, much to the disdain of her sister, Mary Anne Sherrif.
    Honora finally died in the nursing home in 1918.

    1. What an amazing story and amazing woman! I don’t have an information on your Fogarty ancestors but someone else may see this who has.

  5. Just thought I’d take a shot here as you have so much research done in Tipperary and maybe would show my family.

    Looking for a Margaret Fogarty born c.1817 and married Patrick Kennally in Killea on 13 February 1836. Quite a few children born to this couple in Killea before they emigrated to America shortly after 1850. They settled in Flushing, Queens County, NY. I find many Fogarty families in this place. I do not know Margaret’s parents but perhaps there are records in Killea that go back that far which might help. The parents of Patrick (born 16 March 1802 in Tipperary) are John and Margaret Kennedy Kennally.

    Thanks for any possible clues or perhaps some knowledge you might have about available records for Killea or Templemore. I have checked the valuations. Hoping to find more baptisms and marriages and maybe some burials.

    Thanks for such an interesting site!

    1. The only place I can suggest is the Rootsireland site for North Tipperary. Fogarty is a fairly common Irish surname which makes it harder and of course this site charges 5 euros for a record! but if you narrow down the parish and parents names etc this can increase your chances.

      Margaret most likely was born in Killea as that was where she was married. Am assuming you have a marriage record so hopefully there are some details on that to help.

      Sometimes there is valuable info on passenger lists, like Margaret’s parents??

      It does get very hard to go back further than you have already.You have done well to get back as far as you have. My earliest birth date for a Fanning ancestor is 1731 and this came from a gravestone.

      The other possibility is to pay for research. I have done this with good results through Tipperary Family History Research.They came up with my ancestor’s marriage record for 1809. But in terms of money, genealogy, especially Irish family history,can be a bottomless pit.

      The National Library has digitized all the Parish records and hopefully they will put them online sometime in the not too distant future!! This is what I am waiting for. Not sure what the library is waiting on.

      Maybe someone else connected to your family may see your post.

      Good luck.

  6. Thanks so much for the fast and informative reply. To me this part of your comment was key: “The National Library has digitized all the Parish records and hopefully they will put them online sometime in the not too distant future!! This is what I am waiting for. Not sure what the library is waiting on.”

    That would really be nice! Still waiting on the release of the NYC Catholic records as well. Can you imagine how many family history problems will be solved when this happens? If you hear anything about the Irish parish records please do post about it. Is there a place I can look for updates?

    Thanks so much and continued good luck with your research,

    1. It is going to be BIG news when the National Library puts all the Parish registers online. There don’t seem to be any updates. Every now and then I email the library to see. Hope springs eternal.I will let you know.

      Have heard they may charge for the first 5 years!!! Hopefully nothing like Rootsireland.

      They have scanned the originals so it will be fun deciphering the handwriting but at least will eliminate strange and misleading transcription errors.

      Another place you could check for records is familysearch.org, the Latter Day Saints site bad also Rootsweb World Connect owned by Ancestry.com. Both are free but sources scarce and questionable. But no harm looking through.

  7. Hi! Your site is great! Thank you for sharing your work with the world. Do you happen to have any source material for Cornelius Fogarty and Catherine Birmingham and their children? I’m particularly interested in Margaret, whom you have listed as born in 1806. My earliest known Fogarty ancestor is a Margaret Fogarty who emigrated to the US in 1853. She gave her age as 45 on the ship manifest, which would mean she was born in about 1806. She emigrated with her 16 yr old son, Cornelius (b. About 1837) so I wonder if he was born out of wedlock to this branch of the Fogarty family you have listed. If you paid for the records, would you mind letting me know where you found them, please? I am FogartyT family tree on Ancestry.com. I would appreciate any help you might offer!

    1. I’ll get back to you re sources for these records, have contacted the person who gave me this info. regards Kathleen

        1. Sorry haven’t been able to get the source for these records, I think that they must be from parish records as sponsors names are given. The woman who gave them to me lives in Dublin so I bet she got them from the National Library’s microfilm. If she gets back to me I’ll contact you. regards Kathleen

  8. Hi Kathleen,
    Thank you for trying to contact her! I appreciate your reply. : )

    I just realized I made an error in math above, LOL–1853-45=1808, not 1806. 1806 is the birth year for the Margaret in the family tree you have listed. I spent all day yesterday looking up info on Margaret and Cornelius and their descendants, so now 1808 is burned into my brain.

    Anyway, happy searching and thanks again!

  9. Hi Kathleen, Interesting information your site has, I am wondering if we could be related. My relation was Martin Moylan he married Mary Fogarty on 7 Jan 1823 at Longhmore, Tipperary. I have their marriage record. Martin Moylan residing at Templetouhy and Mary Fogarty was residing Ballinroe. I am wondering if your Thomas Fogarty and Honoria Long had a Mary too. Their Witnesses where a Thomas Fogarty and Martin Brophy. Oh my Moylan’s where from Tullowmacjames, Templetouhy
    Faye Kennedy, Australia.

    1. Hi Faye,
      Thomas Fogarty and Honoria did have a daughter Mary but she was born in 1832. Thomas had a sister Mary born 1801 probably in Lisheenataggert. But nearly every family had a Mary!!and Fogarty was a common surname so doubly hard. Do you know who the parents of your Mary were?

  10. Hi- I know this is a complete long shot, because finding my Fogarty in Tipperary, Ireland would be much like trying to find a needle in a haystack. But here goes nothing….
    My 4 times great grandfather was John Fogarty- I have an approximate birthdate of 1824- and according to his death record in Columbus, Franklin, Ohio USA his father was Michael Fogarty and his mother was listed as Elizabeth. He moved to the USA sometime before 1854 because his oldest daughter Elizabeth was born in Marysville, Union, Ohio USA but I don’t know when exactly, and I have not been able to find any information about his life in Ireland. Anything would be most appreciated at this point!!
    Warm Regards,
    Melissa – Granville, Licking, Ohio USA.
