Bandon Genealogy and the Lismore Papers

Our recent research has been concentrated on the papers of the Dukes of Devonshire, the landlords for most inhabitants of Bandon town and many of the surrounds. We are posting as much as possible on the website but Bandon researchers should check this resource for themselves if they have the opportunity, as it is extensive and rich in information on local families.

The index to the Lismore Papers (estate papers of Dukes of Devonshire) can be found online at

and is searchable. The papers themselves, along with numerous microfilms, are held at the National Library of Ireland, Dublin. The National Library does not do research to our knowledge but if you find something of interest and are unable to visit in person it may be possible to have a professional researcher check that reference for you. Where the condition of the material allows, photocopies of documents can be obtained.

We have extracted as much specifically Bandon material as practical so we hope you will find something of interest once we have it all up on the website."
