In Reply to: Michael Dignan County Cavan, Ireland by Eileen Irwin of 170

We recently received research from Nobber Parish in northern Co. Meath, just a few miles south of Cavan.

Several Dignams were mentioned.

The tithe applotment book (1826) shows a Patt Dignan holding land in Cregg townland, Nobber Parish.

These records are from the Nobber Catholic Church.

May 12 1788 Anne was born to Edmund and Cathy Clarke
of Killbride townland. Brien Dignam was a
sponsor.
March 23 1793 Phillip was born to Owen and Bridget
Clarke of College townland. Owen Dignam was
a sponsor.
Aug 27 1814 Thomas was born to James and Bridget Clarke
Shalvoy of Cregg. Patrick Dignam was a sponsor.
Sept. 1 1826 Bridget was born to James and Bridget
Shalvoy of College. James Dignam was a sponsor.
July 21 1832 Rose was born to James and Bridget Shalvoy
of Buracom (same family as above). Thomas
Dignam was a sponsor.
Jan 30 1787 Michael Clarke and Ann Martin were married.
Witnesses were Phillip and Thomas Lignam (most
likely Dignam)
Feb 2 1810 Michael Clarke married Ann Dignam (she from
College townland). John and Owen Dignam were
witnesses.

I am interested in the Clarke and Shalvoy families if someone makes a connection.
