My ancestors - McCarthy - Contents

McCarthy of Ardfert, Co.Kerry

Mary Barrett in [P102/207(29-30)] writes it "McArthy".
We assume that is just an error, because her spelling is very bad. She writes "grate gran mother", and "Abby" for "Abbey", and "maid" for "made", and so on.

--- McCarthy,
of Ardfert, NW of Tralee, Co.Kerry (see map),
[P102/207(29)] says: "the McEllistrems, McArthys and Scollards are from Ardfert",
had issue:

  1. Mary McCarthy,
    mar pre-1805 to Richard McEllistrem [born est c.1780, ran business at Ballylongford, Co.Kerry] and had issue.

  2. (dau) McCarthy,
    mar --- Scollard [of Ardfert].
    Mary Barrett in c.1907 [P102/207(30)] says there are some Scollard relations then living in Ardfert.

Mary McCarthy mentioned in [P102/207(29)].
"Big Mamma your father used call her".
