Could anyone help me with William McCarthy (could be McArthy) born 1818 c Cork.

These are the only details I have from paperwork at Central Criminal Court London 1837.
SAYS he was Protestant - single - could read & write and lived County Cork.
I know it is a huge amount of information, but I would be happy if someone could help me.

Have you looked at Church of Ireland records at all?

This is a long shot, but on the off chance -

Perhaps this fellow fibbed and said he was Protestant, in the hopes of getting a more merciful sentence? You might even want to try searching the Catholic records.

On the possibility that this guy was really descended from a C of I line, I took a look at the religious census of 1766 in the hopes his father's family might be in there:
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/DB.aspx?dbid=5990

but I don't find anybody named McCarthy in Cork or in all of Ireland for that matter.

Even as recently as the 1901 census, there were very few McCarthys in Ireland who were tallied as members of the C of I. Another long shot - but the townlands and streets in Cork City listed here might be places to focus on, and from there figuring out what church parishes to search.

Thanks again Skibbgirl, Looks like he is getting further out of our hands. Just did not want us looking over our shoulders, otherwise he would have left a trail.

From the reports in Australia, I do not think he would off wanted to remember his past, but it is our past as well.

Thank you again....Lee

That's wonderful! Was that in a RC baptismal or C of I baptismal?

Lee, We have common relations. My GrGrGrandmother was Mary McCarthy, father Daniel (b 1809), his father and grandfather also called Daniel. All Protestant - actually Presbyterian as recorded in the 1901 census but were marrying in CofI churches near Bandon, Cork. Check out my page at http://web.me.com/ijlmoore/Site/Welcome.html
Let me know if there are any common ancestors, ian_moore@verizon.net

My great-grandfather was Thomas J. McCarthy, son of Daniel McCarthy and Nora Coughlan from Kinsale. Could there be a connection?
