These marriage records are from the Catholic Parish registers now online, free, at the National Library of Ireland site.
For Drom and Inch at The National Library of Ireland online site there are marriage records from 5 May 1827 to 16 Oct 1880.
Rootsireland has earlier marriage records for this parish. For Drom and Inch they have marriage records from 1807 to 1880. I have included these records from Rootsireland from 1807 to 1827.
The Drom Catholic marriage registers are unusual in that a lot of the time the priest wrote the address in the margin and the entries are easy to read. The most frustrating aspect of the Irish parish marriage records of this time is that the parents’ names were not entered.
Marriages took place usually in the bride’s townland, so this address would be her family’s. These records are of use in finding female Fannings but of course the males were married in the woman’s townland so they are harder to track.
Often “House” was written in the margin. I am assuming this is because the marriage ceremony took place in their house rather than a chapel or church but I may be wrong. Let me know otherwise.
I am also including any marriages where a Fanning or Fannen or Fannon was a witness.
My Fanning ancestors came from Lissaroon and there was only one Fanning family in Lisaroon as far as I know. Lisaroon was/is a townland of 296 acres near Thurles. In Grifiths Valuations there are 31 entries for Lissaroon.
