Walsh "Watt Moore", Aglish

Return to Mooncoin Families

The first record of this family is the marriage of Nicholas Walsh Aglish and Mary Henebry, Luffany on the 7th Feb 1779. The witnesses to the marriage were Nicholas’ father Walter and Mary’s father Richard. By the time of the 1821 census Nicholas was dead and Mary was recorded as having been born in 1755.

I suspect William Walsh “Watt Bawn” may have been a brother of Nicholas as he also named his first son and daughter Walter and Mary. In addition in the 1850s their descendants were listed together sharing 50 “English” acres in Griffith’s Valuation. In 1821 both families were listed with 15 Irish acres (24 odd English) which is close to the 1850 total.
