I'm just a person who tries to give people resources to find information. Gives me something to do and keeps the old grey cells working.

Names could be spelt so many different ways back then, mostly due to who ever was writing it. Very few people could read and write. I've seen up to 3 different spellings of the same family on a gravestone!

Try the Registry of Deeds-Ireland if I didn't give you that
already. Just google and look for rootsweb. There is also
a Deed Registry Office in Dublin (there might be one in Cork?)
eg: Henry Ellis, Surgeon Glamhre, Cork 18/2/1839

Kingston, a few for Cork. Once you get to the surnames, click on the box with the surname you want, then scroll down the information is hidden on your screen till then.

Few people actually owned there own land. You can look at
1876 owners of land on

Carrickfadda was a townland, the smallest division of land and unique to Ireland.
The townland is in two parishes and two different Poor Law Unions.
PLU of Skibbereen, Parish Abbeystrowry and
PLU Clonakilty, Parish Ross

There is a website for Cork and Ross Diocese, I think with a map.

This area of Cork is to the south and West. There is a genealogy office there that can work through their baptism
and marriage records and find those family connections. I don't think there is any other way and they will charge you a commission for the research.

I found 1 Ellis in the Cork telephone book in Clonakilty out of 34 listings. I would write a letter to this person.
Address is sufficient for mail delivery.

There are 195 Kingston's 28 in the Clonakilty area.

I'm amazed you found the surname with Rossley! Very good
