Welcome to the Palmer Family

Welcome to the history of my Palmer family

Welcome to the history of my Palmer family, and my Doherty, Crumlish, Hernan, Loughnan, Cavanagh, D'Arcy, McGuire, Lee or (Ley) ancestors and many more besides .....

This site was updated on Tuesday 19 August 2014. Even more pages, photos and working links will be added soon. Please get in touch with me using the Contact tab above.

My journey has taken me to places in Ireland as diverse as the rain swept purple hills of Inishowen and the dense green oak groves of Shillelagh. I have traced direct links to family in Donegal, Derry, Belfast, Wexford, Dublin, Wicklow and Carlow. One line even extends back to Cornwall and Kent in England (from where my Palmer surname comes) and another to Scotland.

I've even come across an oral family tradition that I am descended from a soldier or sailor who arrived in Ireland with the great Spanish Armada of 1588, after trying to invade England!

Most of these pages are a bit of an indulgence, to share my family history with the world, as if anyone in the world would be interested, and to help me find more missing family members!

On my mother's side the family come from Donegal and Derry.

On my father's side, the Palmer line goes back to Derry, Belfast, Dublin, then on to Wexford, Cornwall and Devon, and finally to Deptford, Kent. There is also a link to Edinburgh. My grand-mother Josephine's family hail from Wexford, Carlow and Wicklow.

The Family Links box to the right will take you to my direct family line. However, when you click on the individual's name, you will find out more about other members of their family - if the information is available.

The General links box will take you to other internal and external links relevant to that person.

If you recognise any of the names on this site, or even if you just want to say "Hello", please contact me using the Contact tab above. I look forward to hearing from you.
