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.

A Social History of North Main Street and Kilbrogan Hill, Bandon, County Cork

Our new publication entitled Bandon, County Cork.  A Social History of North Main Street and Kilbrogan Hill is now available from Amazon.  The study focuses on the evolution of a part of Bandon once filled with tanneries, malt houses, shops, public buildings and residential dwellings.  It is intended to be of assistance to those researching their ancestors who once lived in the area.  Family members of familiar Bandon settler surnames such as Bennett, Fuller, Hunter, Appelbe, Lee, Loane, Williams, Robinson, Clear, Baldwin, Burchill, Tresilian and Teulon all either held leases or lived on the street themselves for a time.  The study also analyses the immense influence of the Devonshire Estate as far as it related to the street.

The Tresilian Family of County Cork - Landowners and Bandon Merchants

The Tresilian Family of County Cork is our first publication which is now available at Amazon. The family came to County Cork from Cornwall in the early 1600s. Our study focuses on how they were affected by the economic developments of the time, how they integrated into the community, amassing considerable land holdings and building up successful businesses only for many of the family members to see their wealth evaporate by the mid 1800s. They had all disappeared from Bandon and the surrounding area by the time of the 1901 census. The Tresilians married into similar Bandon merchant families such as Popham, Sullivan, Allman, Coughlan, Belcher, Bernard, Seymour, Jagoe and Jenkins.
