Hello,
Looking for information on the Shackleton Families of Lucan. With no census available I am finding tracing my ancestors really difficult. Looking for Information on Joseph Shackleton and a Abraham Shackleton who were in Lucan. Joseph brought the Mill. Does anyone know Joseph's family or anyone else in Lucan with the name SHACKLETON.??

I hope someone can help me?

The Shackletons are a well known Quaker family (Society of Friends). There are still some Shackletons in Ireland. The most famous one was Sir Ernest the Antarctic explorer. There is more information about them in the book 'A Biographical Dictionary of Irish Quakers' by Richard S. Harrison published by Four Courts Press Dublin 1997 ISBN 1851823042 It does not mention Joseph specifically but would be a useful source as there are not many Shackletons and they would all be connected I surmise.
