Teresa, thanks for answering.
I believe it is true that the Kinsella name did originate in Co. Wexford-in Ferns, no doubt.
I have been told that all the Kildare Kinsellas are related. this is the story I was told: In 1732, my informant's (Kitty Kinssela Coffey)ancestor, Thady Kinsella was living in Rahill, Co. Carlow on the estate of the Fitzgearld Earl. Thady had a very pretty young daughter who had caught the eye of the Earl who told Thady he wanted her to start working at his mansion. Thady replied he would not be sending her there and knowing what his refusal meant added,"and I'll be moving my family off your land tomorrow." The angry, red faced Earl replied, "Notonly your family, I want everyone with that accursed name of Kinsella off my land forever. In May 1732, Thady and his family moved to Broadstown, Co.Kildare.
Jack
