I have been working on my Mannix family line for a year now however have had little success finding anything about the parents of my ancestor who supposedly came from Scarriff.
My g-g-grandfather, Dennis Mannex, died in New Zealand and per his obituary I found he came from Scarriff, Co Clare. The same obituary source says his parents took the family when he was six in ~1850's to Australia goldfields then returned to Ireland around the 1860's. Dennis returned to Australia ~1870 and then came to NZ 1880's and settled here.
His sister was Bidelia Mannex who married Michael Maher.
His mother's maiden name may have been Malone, according to his death certificate.
Does any of this sound familiar with your Mannix family from Scarriff?
