Kavanagh of Newfoundland
Posted by: Dianne Kavanagh (ID *****5278) Date: February 16, 2008 at 06:59:21

Hello. I see a ton of information here on kavanaghs from all over the globe, as well as those who came from Ireland to Newfoundland.

I am aware of 2 distinct groups on the Avalon Peninsula in Nfld...one group settled the Bell Island/Portugal Cove area, and there is another group on the Southern Shore in Ferryland/Calvert.

Does anyone know if these 2 groups are connected by a common anscestor ? I understand the first Kavanagh in Bell Island came from County Wexford, Ireland. Oral history of the group on the Southern Shore gives conflicting information....County Cork and/or County Kerry...it's possible the first immigrant was from County Kerry but sailed out of Cork.

Does anyone out there have any information on the Kavanaghs from the Southern Shore and/or know if there is an anscestral connection with those on Bell Island ?

All and any replies appreciated.
