A Proposed Family Tree for the Feltus Family of co. Carlow

Back to The Feltus Family of Carlow

Note: this is a proposed tree which fits in and accommodates all of the known references but it does not contain documented links between some of the generations. However, any assumptions which have been made are noted in the tree where they occur. This is a working proposal for developing their tree as more facts are gathered.  Should anyone have any problems, suggestions or corrections concerning this tree, please contact me (for my email address see my Home page).  I would welcome any help sorting out this very complex family tree.  However, please note that my interest is limited to the Feltus family lines in county Carlow only particularly up to the point where they crossed my own Bowles line.
 
Note: be careful with the town and parish names, there are lots of references online for the Feltus family at Dunleckney, co. Carlow but that is only the parish name and it was a large parish.  Both of the churches actually in Dunleckney townland had been closed and abandoned by 1817 although the burial ground continued to be used.  New churches were built in Bagenalstown where Beauchamp Bagenal of Dunleckney was trying to build a new modern showpiece community. While in Bagenalstown they were still called the parish churches of Dunleckney.  The records were kept in the registers there for any birth, marriage or death in the entire parish.  To make it harder there were also small chapels in many of the townlands where a Minister or Priest would visit occasionally and catch up on all the local events to be performed.  In most cases those records no longer exist although some of them were then transcribed into the parish records at a later date sometimes including the townland where the event actually occurred but not always.  So a Feltus baby born in Kildrenagh was possibly baptized there but the event was recorded in the Dunleckney parish register at the Bagenalstown church.  So transcribed records could state that the child was "of Kildrenagh", "of Dunleckney" or of "Bagenalstown" with equal accuracy.  See the map in The Feltus Family of Carlow
 
Note: be cautious with the significance of the spelling of the surname , according to Edward MacLysaght in The Surnames of Ireland (1973), Feltus was a local corruption, of comparitively  recent introduction, of the English Felthouse found in counties Carlow and Wexford (in the late 1700's, early 1800's the name spread to many other counties).  In a very small area, the name appears as Feltus, Feltis and Feltuce all in the same period and with multiple spellings in the same family.  It does not imply separate family lines any more than their religion does.  That occurred when a Church of Ireland Feltus male married a Catholic woman and the children were raised in her faith as was common in Ireland.
 
Henry Feltus b. ~ 1670 England (came to Ireland before 1702, )
1. Henry Feltus b. ~ 1700 Ireland m. Elizabeth Blake (Henry) ~ 1720 Ireland

1.1.1  Catherine Feltus b. ~ 1771 d. 1866 Carlow (age 95)  LDS Film 101583 (vol. 18, p. 307)
(possibly Catherine fits in here, based on birth date alone)
1.1.2  Adam Bloomfield Feltus b. ~ 1781
m. Rebecca Ball (bp. July 24, 1768 Dublin; Benjamin of Seisin Park, co. Wicklow) April 1806

1.1.2.2 Elizabeth Dorothea Feltus m. Rev. Nicholas Cuthbert Fenwick (Rev. Cuthbert of Northumberland)
Elizabeth d. 1886
Adam d. May 25, 1849 bur. Fenagh, co. Carlow
1.1.3  John Feltus (no children) (at Hollybrook in 1797)
1.1.4  Henry Feltus (no children) (he was an Apothecary ref.)
(Note:I haven't found any further references for this Henry Feltus in Ireland so he is a possible candidate for the well documented Henry James Feltus b. Dec. 25, 1775 co. Carlow, m. Martha Ryan Apr. 19, 1794 Dublin, son Edward b. Jan. 25, 1795 Ireland and the family then emigrated to the US in May 1795 where he later became the Rev. Henry James Feltus)
1.1.5  Elizabeth Feltus b. 1789
m. Major Benjamin Marcus Ball Oct. 19, 1814 St. George’s Church, Dublin
1.1.5.1  Right Hon. John T. Ball, Lord Chancellor of Ireland
Elizabeth d. Mar. 28, 1838 Dundrum
1.1.6  Jane Feltus b. ~ 1788 Carlow (probably here and fits with the mother's name being Jane)
m. Joseph Bowles Feb. 27, 1808 St. Mary's, Carlow, co. Carlow (C of I)
1.1.7  Sarah Feltus b. ~ 1793 (possibly here)

Cuthbert d. Nov. 3, 1799 bur. Fenagh
Jane d. Mar. 26, 1821 bur. Fenagh
 
1.2  Richard Feltuce  b. ~ 1737 (age 71 at death in Jan. 1809)
(or still slightly possible this could be a cousin of Cuthbert's rather than his brother, but some close relationship is certainly indicated)
m. Elizabeth (b. before 1746) (age above 60 on death in May 1806) ~ 1758 Carlow
(lived at Ballywilliamroe/Kildreenagh, co. Carlow)
1.2.1  Richard Feltus b. ~ 1760
(lived at Kildrenagh and Bagenalstown)
1.2.1.1   Richard Feltuce b. ~ 1784 m. Elizabeth Evans Sept. 2, 1804 Bagenalstown, Dunleckney parish, co. Carlow

1.2.1.1.1  William Feltuce b. Nov. 12, bp. Nov. 17, 1805 Bagenalstown, Dunleckney parish, co. Carlow

1.2.1.1.3.1  James Feltus b. Apr. 1, bp. Apr. 4, 1841 Bagenalstown, Dunleckney parish
(I'm not confident about putting this birth here as his father was recorded as James Feltus, farmer, of Kildrenagh and wife Sarah; however of the two known James at Kildrenagh, James Sr. was about 71 in 1841 and his wife was Edith not Sarah while James Jr. was only 11 in 1841 so it could have been this James in Richard's line (originally of Ballywilliamroe) who married a Sarah and farmed at Kildrenagh just a mile away; no proof of that yet though)
1.2.1.1.4   Maria Feltuce b. Dec. 14, bp. Dec. 19, 1813 Bagenalstown, Dunleckney parish, co. Carlow
(recorded as daughter of Richard Feltuce and wife Anne (?);
she probably goes here as a nice potential fit,
Anne could be an error in the original register)

m. Isabela Monroe ?????
1.1.?  James Henry Feltis b. Apr. 20, 1893 Nottawasaga twp., Simcoe co., Ontario (registration shows mother Isabella Monroe but states father was Henry Feltis, hotel keeper of Avening; this is from an original document and the registration was made by Henry so it should be correct; an illegitimate child?)
1.1.4  Nellie Feltis (possibly Helen May Feltis) b. 1895 Ont. (cannot find birth registration)
1.1.5  Erma C. Feltis b. 1897 Ont. (this birth was not registered although she appears as age 4 in the 1901 census; in 1940 her birth was finally registered as Irma Christina Feltis by her mother Amelia Sikes (then remarried as Dew) with the birthdate Mar. 12, 1902 in Avening and the father as James Henry Feltis of Avening; it seems strange that her mother was incorrect about the hear of the child's birth; the 1911 census of Toronto North shows Amelia Feltis as head of the household, marriage status single (not as widow), with all these children (Edith, Maud, Pansy, Nellie and Irma) except James Henry, in this record she has Irma's birthyear as 1897)
