21 Feb 1857, William Fannon & Sera Guidera, wit: Philip Fannon & Johanna Guidera. This couple emigrated to New Zealand with most of their children. I have written a post about them, William Fanning and Sarah Guidera.

I noticed that from the time of William and Sarah’s marriage in 1857 within three days two other Guidera marriages had taken place.

Between Feb 1857 and Feb 1863, a total of eight Guideras had married. I wonder if these marriages were prior to emigration.

22 Jan 1859, Dan Quinlon & Judith Hamill, wit: Tom Fannon & Mary Hamill

14 Feb 1895, Bourney Civil Marriage record. William Fanning, age 28, farmer of Loran & Margaret Coonan of Ashmere, age 26. His father William Fanning, her father Michael Coonan. Witnesses were Michael Hardgrove & Mary Coonan. Married in Couraganeen RC Church.

After 1867 there were so few marriages one wonders if this was the result of the famine and mass emigration from this parish.
