Dunkerrin Fanning Baptism Records Co Tipperary & Co Offaly, Ireland, 1820-1873

Fanning Baptism Records for Dunkerrin Parish, Co Tipperary, Ireland, 1820-1873 from nli site.

Moneygall (Dunkerrin ) Catholic Parish Co Tipperary Ireland

Fanning baptism records for Dunkerrin Parish (Moneygall & Barna): 1820-June 1873.

Variant forms of the parish name are Barna, Moneygall & Barna  and Dunkerrin.

The parish is in Co Tipperary & Co Offaly, (Kings Co) in the Diocese of Killaloe.

These records are from the National Library of Ireland’s site.

I looked through these baptism records as William Fanning and his brother Philip married two Eviston women, most likely sisters, from Loughmore Parish.

My Fannings are related to the Evistons. So I was interested to see if there might be  a connection to the Fannings from Lissaroon. I couldn’t find anything to indicate this other than Martin Eviston’s involvement.

Philip Fanning married Mary Eviston on 31 Jan 1822 in Loughmore Parish. William Fanning married Ellen Eviston on 27 Jan 1825 also in Loughmore Parish.

Rootsireland has baptism records for this parish from 1820 to 1911 and irishgenealogy.ie has civil birth records from 1864.

The main Fanning families in this parish seem to have lived in Castlerone.

Tipperary Fanning links to Midland Tribune Fanning Family Birr

The Fanning family of Birr who owned The Midland Tribune in Birr Offaly have roots in Roscrea and Castleroan. The grandfather of Aengus Fanning was born in Roscrea Co Tipperary.

When I was in Ireland a fourth cousin told me that our Fanning family is related to that of Aengus Fanning whose family owned The Midland Tribune in Co Offaly (Kings).  Dunkerrin was also mentioned. That was all they knew.

Now that Rootsireland is a subscription site I decided to research the Eviston material I have in a folder and trawl through some records. I had come across quite a few Eviston-Fanning marriages and was curious to see if the Fannings involved were connected to my family.

Previously I had missed records as I just searched in Co Tipperary in Rootsireland. This time I did all Ireland searches and found Fanning records for Dunkerrin in Co Offaly which borders Co Tipperary.

I’ll start with the Aengus Fanning connection to the Fannings of Tipperary and the Evistons.

Aengus’s grandfather James Joseph Fanning is in the 1901 census as a doctor aged 30 living in Cumberland St Birr. He was born in Limerick St Roscrea on 10 July 1866. He married Anne Josephine Powell “Birdie” in Dublin on 6 Oct 1903. She was the daughter of Margaret O’Connor and John Powell. Witnesses at their wedding were Francis Norton and Mary Kate Powell of Birr.

Annie and James had four boys: John Leo Martin born Birr 6 Dec 1904, Arnold Francis born Birr Nov 1905, Patrick born about 1905, James Ignatius born in 1907. James Joseph, died  in Bournemouth England on 17 March 1908 and is buried in Clonoghill Cemetery Co Offaly, he was only 41.

Obituary Annie Fanning nee Powell Kerryman 31 Dec 1955

The parents of James Joseph Fanning were Martin Fanning and Mary Slattery of Roscrea Co Tipperary. Martin Fanning was born at Castleroan in Dunkerrin Parish in Sept 1829. His godparents were Martin Eviston and Judith Fanning. Martin married Mary Slattery of Glen Bower in Terryglass Parish on 17 July 1860. Witnesses were Patt Fanning and Ellen Bermingham. His second wife was Ellen Burke.  Martin died in Jan 1903 aged 74 and is buried in St Cronans RC cemetery in Roscrea. He was a shopkeeper/merchant/publican in Limerick St Roscrea Co Tipperary.

Martin Fanning’s  parents were William Fanning and Ellen Eviston who married in Loughmore  Parish on 27th Jan 1825 witnessed by Robin Eviston and Mary Eviston. William died age 71 on 6 Mar 1866 and is buried in Dunkerrin Church of Ireland graveyard. His wife Ellen Fanning nee Eviston died Feb 7 1871 aged 70 and is buried with him. I am looking to find Ellen’s parents.

So the connection to the Fannings is through the Evistons although the Fannings of Castleroan Dunkerrin may also have a link to the Fannings of Lissaroon.


Fanning Wills in the National Archives Dublin

Co Tipperary and Dublin Fanning wills and probate papers listed in the National Archives in Dublin.

William Fanning & Sarah Guidera Co Tipperary and Wellington New Zealand

William Fanning c1828-1907 born Co Tipperary Ireland emigrated to new Zealand and lived in Wellington. He may be related to the Lissaroon Fannings.

I came across this obituary for a William Fanning from Co Tipperary born about1828 and he died in 1907. The fact that he is said to be related to John Eviston got me interested. How is he related? and could he be part of my Fanning clan?

William Fanning Wellington NZ Obituary 1907
William Fanning Wellington NZ Obituary 1907

The John Eviston he is related to was born in Clonomocogue just north of Thurles in 1844 and died in Bathurst, NSW Australia in 1925. His mother was Mary Fanning, daughter of William Fanning and Hanera Cormick of Lissaroon, my ancestors.

On William Fanning’s death certificate his parents are listed as Phillip Fanning and Mary Fanning nee Eviston. They were married in Loughmore Parish Co Tipperary on 31 Jan 1822, witnessed by Robert Eviston and John Leahy. So John Eviston and William Fanning were first cousins. William’s mother Mary Eviston marrying Phillip Fanning of Dunkerrin.

I could not find a birth or baptism record for William but did find records for two of his sisters. Margaret was born in Castleroan Dunkerrin Co Offaly, her godparents were John Hennesy and Mary Fanning. Mary, the other sister, was born in the same address and baptised on 7 Oct 1838, her godparents were John and Mary Maher.

Phillip, William’s father, died on 15 April 1875 in the parish of Shinrone, Kings county. He was a farmer.  He  died from bronchitis, aged 82. His mother Mary Fanning nee Eviston died in Castleroan on 1 Mar 1886 in Shinrone Parish Co Offaly(Kings). She was 86 and cause of death was marasmus, severe malnutrition.

The Evaston/Eviston Family from Clonomocogue Co Tipperary Ireland

The Evistons (spelt Evaston & Eveston) came from Clonomocogue near Thurles Co Tipperary Ireland. Two Evastons were married to Fanning women and quite a few of their descendants ended up in Australia particularly in Bathurst NSW.

Map of irish Counties use
Map of the Irish Counties

The Evistons from Clonomocogue More Thurles Co Tipperary Ireland are connected to the Fanning family from Thurles.

Clonomocogue is just north of Thurles. It is spelt as Clonamuckoge in Griffith’s Valuation.

I still have to research the Eviston-Fanning connections further and would appreciate any info on them or corrections if you see any mistakes or inaccuracies.

Eviston is spelt in different ways: Evaston, Eveston and in the Griffith’s Valuation as Evinston. There don’t seem to have been many of them in Co Tipperary. I have found records of Evistons in Thurles and Moyne Parishes. The records that North Tipperary Genealogy has for Evistons start too late to be of much use.

In Griffith’s Valuation at Clonamuckoge More in the Parish of Loughmoe East (Loughmore East) published in Sept 1849 Martin Evinston has 4 acres and 39 perches of land worth 2 pounds 17 shillings. He is at number 1. At number 9 are Thomas Evinston (Small) and Thomas Evinston (Big) and John Evinston and Martin Evinston. Between them they have 111 acres. In Baronstown townland in the same parish Martin Evinston has 58 acres with house, office and land.

The Townlands of Clonamuckoge Beg and More Loughmoe East Co Tipperary Griffith’s Valuation published Sept 1849

A good place to look at Griffith’s Valuations is the Ask About Ireland site. It is worth checking the date the particular parish valuations were published. This is at the end of the parish records. Looking at the descendant chart below I am sure Martin Evaston and Margaret Brennan would have had more children than Martin and Thomas but so far I haven’t been able to find them.

Martin married Johanna Fanning and Thomas married Mary Fanning. Mary is buried in Ballycahill Cemetery with the Fanning family. Her father was William Fannin (Fanning) and mother was Hanera Cormack. She would have been born in Lissaroon.

John Eviston Obit 1925 Freemans
Obituary John Eviston Freeman’s Journal 12 Feb 1925


“an upright citizen, a loving father, no greater testimony can be written against the name of any man.

Death came with tragic suddenness, For some time past Mr Eviston had been suffering from heart affection, a fact which will occasion no surprise when it is known that he was in his 81st year. Some little time back he was forced to take to his bed, but as a result of skillful medical attention and the careful ministrations of a loving daughter, he rallied, and was able to move about as usual. On Friday there was no indication that the end was near. His son, the Rev. Father Timothy Eviston, of Dunedoo, was on a visit to his father and left by Saturday morning’s mail. Mr Eviston remained up until about 2 a.m. to see his son off and then retired. At about 7 o’clock on Saturday morning his daughter made her usual visit to the bedside and found her father dead. Death had taken place a couple of hours earlier as a result of heart failure.

The late Mr Eviston was born at Clonomocogue, in the parish of Loughmore, County Tipperary, in 1844, He was the second son of Thomas Eviston, whose ancestors lived in this district for six generations. it is interesting to note that the deceased elder brother, Martin, still survives in the old home in his 87th year. After receiving the usual elementary education then prevailing he entered business in Thurles, where he remained twelve months. He then proceeded to Dublin, and after three years decided to leave Ireland, as it did not offer the opportunities he desired. He sailed in the “Empire of Peace” for Melbourne, which reached in May, 1864. he settled in the Clunes district and obtained a position of book-keeper to Rabby Brothers, contractors. When he was there five years he made up his mind to come to NS Wales. He later settled in Bathurst, where he married in 1870 Elizabeth Connolly, second daughter of the late John Connolly, Rossoulty, Upper Church, Tipperary, Ireland, in the early seventies he opened a business as clothier and mercer with the late James Kelaher. As Kelaher and Eviston the firm became well known and the deceased commanded a large measure of popularity and won much esteem and respect for his transparent honesty and business integrity.

His activity for well night forty years was continuous and practical. AS a member of the hospital committee he was an energetic worker for that institution for more than thirty years. He was not a man that sought the limelight or looked for praise. he was deeply interested in every movement that concerned his native land. During his long residence in Bathurst he was closely associated with the different delegations that came there on behalf of the Irish cause. IN matters concerning Faith and Fatherland he was no rail-sitter. All knew where he stood. Without drum or trumpet to proclaim it, He was throughout his life an uncompromising Catholic and a true Irishman in all circumstances. He was no trimmer, and he placed no confidence in the Irish Catholic who was apologetic for either. As a Catholic who saw the development of the Bathurst parish to a large extent, and who contributed somewhat towards that development, he is perhaps best  known locally. Throughout the rule of the late Dr. Byrne, of happy memory, and for most of that of his successor, the saintly and gentle Dr. Dunne, Mr Eviston’s devotion and energy in promoting the material progress of the church are well known. During this period some of the important works accomplished were the new sanctuary and improvements to the Cathedral, the building of the monastery, the addition of another story to the Convent of Mercy, the erection of the Bishop’s house and the boy’s school. The amount of clerical work which his position as treasurer was enormous, but to him it was a labour of love for which he is now enjoying his reward. When the Conference of St Vincent de Paul was established over twenty years ago he was one of the first members and until a couple of years ago was a regular attendant at the weekly meetings.

he was also one of the earliest members of the Guild in its formation in Bathurst. He occupied many offices in it and at the time of his decease was trustee. he was, perhaps, the oldest Guildman in the State.

He had the distinction of being one of the oldest subscribers to the “Freeman’s Journal”, having taken it for over 50 years.

Deceased’s wife predeceased him by six years, and he is survived by the following members of his family: Sister M. Patrick, Convent of Mercy, Bathurst;Mesdames J. and P.J. Purcell (Woodstock), Miss Eviston (Bathurst), Rev. Father T. Eviston (Dunedoo), Rev. Brother Alphonsus (Patrician Bros., Sydney). Mr. M. Eviston, Bathurst.

The funeral moved from his late residence, William street, The cortege was exceedingly lengthy, and was representative  of the town and district. The chief mourners were three sons, Messrs. J. and P. J. Purcell (sons-in-law), and mesdames J. Moloney, M. Taylor and W. Tracey, and Miss M. Bourke (nieces). The remains were carried to and from the hearse by six members of the A>H.C. Guild, of which body deceased was the last of the founders in Bathurst. The bearers were Messrs. H. McGill, G.Fish, E. O’Brien, jun., J. Holden, R.A. Chifley and T. Burke. The hearse was preceded by members of the Hibernian Society and St. Vincent de Paul Society. The Rev. Father Norton, assisted by the Rev. Father Dunne, Very REv. Father E.P.O’Donnell (Dubbo), Rev Father T.Doran (Bathurst), REv Father Sheehan (Bathurst), Rev Father Dr. M. Mahon, C.M. (Bathurst) Rev Father E. Dowd (Orange) and several other visiting priests officiated at the ceremonies at SS. Michael and John’s Cathedral and also at the graveside. Rev. Bro. Benignun, Provincial of the Patrician Brothers was also present. There were a great number of floral tributes, including wreaths from Bathurst Trotting Club, Bathurst Police, Bathurst District Hospital, Messrs. Reg. Bailkey, J. Lupp, T.W. Willman, Mr. and Mrs. Lorimer, Mr. hearne and Mr. and Mrs. Minehan. R.I.P.” Freeman’s Journal 12 Feb 1925
