I think I can help the MA Barnicle's with how many of you are related...My husband's great--great grandfather was Dennis Barnicle father of James Barnicle b. 1841 in County Mayo Ireland. He was married to Anne McGreal and had approx. 13 children. Their children were Thomas b.2/16/1869, Bridget b. 1870, Maria b. 1874, Cecelia b. 1875, Dennis b. 1878, Anne b. 1879, Agnes (Barnicle) Madden b. 7/12/1884, John J. b. 11/14/1881 and possibly a daugheter named Winifred. James J. Barnicle moved to the US in 1906, to Brookline, MA where another group of Barnicles sprang up. John J. is my husband's grandfather. My husband's father used to talk about visiting some Barnicle's in Natick when he was young. Also, we know that Mike Barnicle's great-grandfather and my husband's were brothers. John J. was born in Parish of Crossboyne, Claremorris, County Mayo, Ireland.
If any of you are related to any of these folks, then you are not only related to the Barnicle's of Worcester and Natick, but also to the Barnicle's of Brookline - our line of the family. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to chat and give you more detail as well.
