In Reply to: Kinsella's in County Wicklow, Ireland by Scott Kerwin of 392

Hi, We just might be researching the same family. My Grandmother's family were from The borders of Wicklow & Wexford near Arklow. The folowing is a copy of a mail I have prepared to look for information, perhaps you might see a common name here.
I would love to hear from any one who might be able to help me with information on my great grandmother's branch of the Kinsella family. She was Bessie (Elizabeth) Kinsella born about 1825 daughter of John Kinsella of Newtown, Coolgreany, County Wexford, (near Arklow on the border of Co.Wicklow), Ireland.
She had siblings, Mary Ellen, Martin and Pierce, One of her brothers (I think Martin) had children, Ned, Michael, Mollie and another Girl.
Bessie married Pat Greene (son of John Greene) from the neighbouring townland of Ballyfad on 25 Sept. 1873 in Johnstown (Arklow Parish). They had John, Mary E, Julia A, Elizabeth A, Annie and My Grandmother Lizzie (also Elizabeth perhaps the other Elizabeth died young). Annie Greene married Nicholas Ward and died on the birth of their first son. He later emmigrated to the USA. Lizzie married my Grandfather Joseph Rossney in 1906.
During the 1887 Coolgreany evictions there was a Martin Kinsella evicted from Newtown and a Patrick Greene evicted from Ballyfad. We believe both of these were our ancestors. We don't know where either family went to live after that. If you think your family may be related to ours or if you can help with information please contact me at
