Flyleaf Press, the publishing arm of Ancestor Network, publish ‘Tracing your Ancestors in Kerry‘ by local historian Kay Caball which details the sources available for research in Kerry and how to use them to best effect.
The names of the scholars are varied and it is not clear if the school catered for any particular community. They include names that are relatively common in the area such as Kelly, Finucane, Dillane, Supple and Enright, but also names that are not usually found in Ireland such as Ware, Eggleston and Nott. An unusual name on the list is ‘Fowlone’, a variant of Folan according to www.johngrenham.com. Further Kerry sources are available in other blogs in this series – see below. If you make a connection, we would love to hear about it.
