The McCabe List -- persons to South Gloucester from County Waterford, Ireland
Hi Al and Mike - hope everything is well with you. Al ~ you previously made a comment regarding all the Waterford immigrants in the McCabe list making mention of knowing George O'Flynn and perhaps they all knew each other back in Ireland. I was searching the web recently looking for additional information on my Powers ancestors. I found the following making reference to a will in Ireland. " Will of Mary POWER of Dunhill Lodge, dated 11.7.1821 mentions sister Kate POWER of Granny, brothers Matthew and William, niece Anne POWER of Granny, cousins Catherine WALSH and George O'FLYNN, relatives Nano POWER and Mary POWER of Croan. 16.11.1821 Proved 19.10.1821" So this George O'Flynn had some ancestry into the Powers family. Interesting eh? ... Mary __________________________ Hi Al, Mike and Anne - I have found that the Power name originates from Le Poer and they had many castles in Ireland (Waterford and Kilkenny, mostly). John Power and Catherine Nolans gravestone does state they are natives of Kilkenny. The names Granagh (Granny) and Croan seem to be Castles. Check out the following: Granagh Castle, County Kilkenny Founded by the Le Poer family in the late 13th century, the castle stands dramatically on the north bank of the River Suir just above Waterford. After the attainder and execution for treason of Eustace FitzArnold Le Poer, the castle was granted in 1375 to James, second Earl of Ormonde, whose family retained possession until 1650, when it was captured by the Cromwellian regicide, Colonel Axtel, and subsequently dismantled. The castle comprised a large, square, walled enclosure with cylindrical corner towers. The landward side was later rebuilt by the Butler family of Ormonde, but the old river fa?e survives complete with its south-west tower, parts of the north-east tower, the connecting curtain wall and latrines. An adjacent walled enclosure has now largely disappeared, save for a riverside drum tower. In the late 14th century the Butlers built a tall tower house in the north corner of the old castle and this was truncated later in the 15th century by a two-storey hall block built against it. The latter has vestiges of beautifully sculpted ornamentation, including an angel holding the Butler arms which decorates the inside arch of the window from which Margaret, the great Countess of Ormonde, hung rebels. 3 km (2 miles) NW of Waterford on the Carrick-on-Suir Road.
