The Leavy name shows up commonly in the RC Parish of Clonmellon which includes the civil parish of Killalon and the townlands of Geighanstown and Archerstown. The Leavy family appears in the cemeteries at Archerstown (and Killalon, I believe, as well). In fact, my family held much of Geighanstown as lessees from the 1730s to @1880. The original family lessees from the Earls of Fingal were HOGANs . In 1848, Rebecca Hogan m. Edward ENNIS who took over the lease. When the ENNISes left for America 1879-1880, the LEAVY family took over the land. Good luck to you! Sharon

My mother is Brigid Kelleghan, daughter of James Kelleghan and Julia Wall of Navan, Co. Meath. I am trying to research her family, but having trouble since the family spells the name differently. My Uncle Anselm, a priest in Dublin, spells the name Keelaghan. My Uncle Oliver spelled it Keleghan. My mom's birth certificate has it spelled two different ways: Keelaghan and Kellaghan. Nevertheless, any information about the family prior to about 1942 when my mother was born in Meath is greatly appreciated.

Hi - I am just beginning to research my husband's and my ancestry. I found the Keleghan name in your message board and would like to exchange some information with you on the Keleghan's to see if we have a connection. My husband is William Joseph Keleghan, III. His father and grandfather were born here, but the great-grandfather was Thomas J. Keleghan born in Ireland. He was married to Bridget Hardiman. I just got this information, so I am in the process of searching census and immigration information to find where they lived and when they came over. I found a Thomas Keleghan, age 26, coming over in May 1888 and this may be the right one, since William the first was born 6/2/1891 in Jersey City, NJ, so the ages would be about right. At one point my husband's grandfather added a second L to Keleghan because he was inherting from a relative in Ireland that spelled it with 2 L's. However my husband and his father kept the spelling with only the one L. Looking forward to hearing from any Keleghans with any variant spellings!

I am looking for information on a Thomas J. Keleghan who emigrated to America. He is my husband's great grandfather and he married Bridget Hardiman. I found a Thomas Keleghan on a passenger list arriving in New York in 1888. It is possible the name was spelled Kelleghan, although the passenger list only has one L in the name. He was estimated to be 26 years old and listed Meath as the place he was from. Perhaps he moved from Westmeath to Meath before coming to America. Thomas' son was William Joseph Keleghan (the first) and he was born in Jersey City on 6/2/1891. Thanks to anyone who can help!

I believe Edward Ennis may have been a brother of my wife's great grandfather, Bryan Ennis. The Ennis family came from Killucan, County Westmeath.

There were Leavy's in Killucan and also in the Parish of Collinstown, Co. Westmeath close to Killalon.
