The Sealy, Cornwall and Allin families of County Cork. Merchants and Bandon Gentry

Our new publication is entitled 'The Sealy, Cornwall and Allin Families of County Cork: Merchants and Bandon Gentry'.  It is now available on Amazon.  This latest study focuses on three protestant families who had important connections with Bandon.  Proceeds from the sales of the book with be donated to the Allin Institute Restoration project.  Fundraising initiatives have recently commenced in earnest as the community building has fallen into considerable disrepair in recent years. The building was bequeathed to the community by James Allin in 1867.

Hello and thank you for writing this blog. We live in Canada and have never been able to figure out where any of our branches came from in Ireland because they came to Canada before decent records were kept here. Just today the Ancestry website gave me a new hint that pointed me to a baptismal record from 1818 in Kilbrogan. Google brought me to this blog and from this blog to the Bandon genealogy site. I browsed that site and I am beginning to think that this might actually be the place that one of our lines is from. If so that is a really big deal. So, great job on leaving a beacon out from the ones that left long long ago! Wonderful!
