Tithe Applotments 1823-1837 www.census.nationalarchives.ie

52 Masterson's, 1 in Parish Clooney, the remainder Killofin Parish


0 Whalen/Whelan checked as well as is spelling specific


Griffith Valuations: 1855 Co. Clare There are 572 in other Counties.

0 Whalen's
0 Masterson's (where did they go. 572 in Griffiths in other counties, Dublin for instance has 125
and Co. Cavan has 115.

If John Masterson 1824 was not born in Co. Clare you could try locating his birth in a online history foundation, I wouldn't even try Margaret Whalen (1833) as there are sure to be many. .www.rootsireland.ie

The names of their children will reflect the couple parents names.

Current on line telephone book has 0 Masterson's in Co. Clare, but 11 Cork, 1 Kerry and 1 Limerick

Thank you very much for this, Annette. I received a written record saying that John Masterson was actually born in Cavan county. I found one record of a John Masterson born 1924 there, but the parents names listed link up to a different non relative John Masterson in Pennsylvania.

Co. Cavan is on www.rootsireland.ie

John was the most common male name in Ireland, followed by James and Patrick. Families also were handing down names from brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles and parents and grandparents.

Good luck. Annette
