Surnames: Croke.
I am currently researching the Croke family, my grandmother lived with grandaunts called Croke who were related to Archbishop Croke. I have acquired information relating to the Croke family. This information is specific to any Croke family members whose ancestors originated in Co.Cork. Donna McAuliffe has an ancestor called James Croke who also appears in my research.

Hi John,

I know it's been a while since your post but I 've only just seen it.

My mother's Grandmother was Mary Farrell.Her parents were Patrick Farrell and Mary Croke married in Shandrum in 1869.All their children were born there.My mother was always told that Mary Croke was a grandniece of Archbishop Croke.I've only just started researching this family and I've see there is a lot of interest in connecting to the Famous Archbishop.I know that there were five of the family joined the clergy Thomas,James,Isabella and two other sisters(names unknown).His uncle Thomas was parish priest in Charleville for over 40 years which is where my mother's family are still.I believe Mary Croke's father was William but not sure.As you can a lot of names and dates are still to be found so if you have any connection with this I'd appreciate any info you might have...Ray

Hi, Johm
I am sorry it took me so long to reply to your search. but I just found it. All the information I have is my grt grand father Michael Croke arrived in New York in 1865 from Ireland. One of his sons was my grandfather Robert E. Croke, his son was my father Leo R. Croke. I am trying to find out who Jame's wife was. On James death certificate she is marked as unknown. I hope we have a family connection

Hi John
My Grandmother's maiden name was Croke. Her father was Michael John Croke b.1885. I was 12 years old when he died. My Grandmother had written a little history down before she died. Her dad's father was James Croke who married in Co Cork Ireland - she did not know spouse name. They had a daughter Mary in Ireland before they migrated to Australia. They then had Kate, Julie, Michael, James, Bridget.
Does any of this tie into your information. Unfortunately my Grandmother did not write down any dates. I am guessing that James Croke was born some time between 1850 and 1860 and that they migrated around 1880. Cheers Susanne

Might I assume you too are protestant? I ask this because at one time I too stated to a friend that archbishop Croke was my great great grandfather. I can still see her shaking her head. You see, she is Catholic and pointed out that priests are not allowed to marry and don't have (acknowledged) children.

I have just finished reading 'Croke of Cashel', an amazing and thoroughly interesting book on archbishop Croke. What an amazing man. Unfortunately even though I am sure we are related it is much further back than I can yet find. I think there must have been many many Crokes in County Cork.

I have listed the Archbishop's family as found in the book under Croke family on my site.
