I was tracing the family line of my brother-in-law, a Denis Heery, born in Liverpool, England. His great-great-grandfather appears on the 1861 English census for Liverpool with a birh place of Kilskipe, Ireland. His wife, and 4 children also have the same birthplace specified.
1861 England Census Record about Mathew Heery
Name: Mathew Heery
Age: 55
Estimated birth year: abt 1806
Relation: Father-in-law
Gender: Male
Where born: Kilskipe, Ireland
I can't find any placename, parish, or barony with this name. It might possible be a "homestead" name. Has anyone hear of it? I suspect it to be somewhere in the Leinster counties since most Heery's came from there in that time frame.
Thanks.

Hello John
The Matthew Heery you refer to was my great-great-grandfather. His son James had a lot of children including Matthew, my grandfather, and Charles who was grandfather of Denis Heery, brother of Alf, Charlie, Kevin, Rita and Nora. I know Denis and Alf went to USA and I presume that your Denis Heery fits in here somewhere.
Your problem with 'Kilskype' is explained by the fact that there was an error in the transcription of the census record. The name of the town is 'Kilskyre'. My brother, Pat, and I have done a bit of work on the Heery family tree and some of it has been written up on our website www.heery.org.uk Please let me know if this information is of any use.
Yours truly Jack Heery

I think perhaps you should try KILSYRE,Co. Meath. Ireland. It is near the Famous town of Kells. There are many families in Co. Meath of the Name Heerey & Heery. There are some of the the same name near Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan. Ireland. This family had 2 members in the priesthood, 1 sadly now dead the other living in a religous community in Dublin. Another member now sadly deaf was Carmel married to Sean McCabe The Moate, Oldcastle, Co. Meath. Ireland. Roy Jos.
