Watchorn Family 1800 to 1876
Help, Does anyone have any information on the Watchorn Families of County Carlow. My daughter is married to Anthony Watchorn and his Mum and myself are trying to research the Family Tree of the Watchorns.
We know that Anthony's Grandfather was Thomas Watchorn, he married Eileen O'Farell 28/9/1927. they had five children.
Thomas's father was John Watchorn he married Margaret Ireton in Clonegal, in 1866. They had seven children.
John, born 6/4/1869
Frank,born 11/4/1869/70?
Julia, born 18/11/1870
Harriet, born 1872
Michael, born 1874 married a Kate
Patrick (PJ), born 20/9/1875 married Mary Duggan in 1897
Thomas born 1876?
We have done some research in Dublin and we have been to Derbyshire trying to link Anthonys ancestors to the Watchorn who went to Derbyshire in 1850's. They were John and Alicia Watchorn. They married in 1855 in Belper District.
This John Watchorn was born in 1831 in Carlow.
this is as far as we have got and have hit a few dead ends.
If anyone out there can give us any information on th Carlow Watchorn's we would be extremely grateful.


Ros Bates and Barbara Watchorn.
