My Davoren Connection

  of 107

Mary Canavan M Hugh Davoren in Magh Cuilinn, Co Galway. Hugh is reported to have said he was the 12th generation. I know of 4 brothers - 3 were priests James Michael and Peter. And one brother John Davoren who went out west. It is my understanding that the last Brehon law school in Co Clare was run by the O'Davorens.
They had 11 children that I know of:
Margaret (1871-1936), Kate, Michael, James, Mortimer, Annie, Delia, Julia, Mary, Sarah and Thomas

Patrick Gavin M Margaret McDonough around 1856 and about every two years they had a child...They had 12 children:
Julia, Mary, Bridget, William, Margaret, Patrick(1867-1935), Maria, Martin, John, Sally, Michael, and James
childrens marriages-
Julia (1857)M Thomas Riley
Mary(1859) M James Welch(Walsh)
Bridget(1869) M John Gavin
Willam(1863) M Delia Walsh
Margaret(1865) M Michael Barrett
Patrick(1867) m Margaret Davoren
Maria(1869) m Martin Foley (Folen)
Martin(1871) m Nora Costello
John(1873) m Mary Kelly
Sally(1875) m Michael Connolly
Michael(1877) m Mary Barrett
James(1879) m Adeline McGinley
Note have childrens names and some of their marriages as well

Margaret Davoren M Patrick Gavin They came to America and at the time of their deaths resided in South Boston Mass. They had 11 children:
William, Margaret, Hugh, Mortimer, Patrick, Martin, James, Mortimer, John, Joseph, and Mary (my grandmother).

Mary Gavin M George Murray and they had 6 children. Starting with a set of twins;
William and Mary (My Mother), Jeanne, James, Margaret, and Patricia.

My Mother Mary M John J Gill and also had 6 children of which I am the oldest.
Jean, Susan, Barbara, Ellen, Carol, and Thomas.

I have more names to add but this is the high points. I found a connection also for Thomas Davoren who married Jeannette (Jean) MacLeanon the Bonjour HomePage. The Bonjours I believe are from Nova Scotia and or their ancestors were.
