I know it's been 14 years since your post - but I just saw it today. I'm sure you have found out things about the Gorry's by now. Let me know if you are still looking. Thomas R's sister, Mary Olivia, was my great grandmother.

My great grandmother, Ann Gorry, was born 1855 in Ireland. We think her parents were Catherine Monahan and Patrick Gorry (possibly related to your family?). She immigrated to New Jersey......married Sheridan.....eventually returned to Ireland, remarried and died 5-Dec-1928.
Not sure where in Ireland or when she immigrated to USA.

Gorry (and varients)

2011-11-11 21:07:33Z

I have traced my tree back to ny GGGrandfather Daniel HAWKINS bap 1835 Malew. He married Eleanor CAREN in 1852 Braddan.The family can be found in the 1861 census. Eleanor died in 1865 and Daniel married Elizabeth GORRY in 1867 Rushen. Daniel is probably at sea but Elizabeth is mother to the children in the 1871 census.
Daniel HAWKINS died in 1876 in Cork and his daughter Anne registered the death. Another daughter Ellen married in Cork August 1876.
My Question is could the family have moved to Ireland? The seem to have dissapeared from the Isle of Man.
Any help appreciated.

Hi Michelle,

It seems that Tubber & Rosemount might be the place for the Gorry's.

I might end up having to go over there some time next year for a ferret around to see if anything crops up. Are they a direct line to you or an offshoot ?

Thanks for getting in touch

Bonjour Ginette,

C'est moi ta cousine Diane. En parcourant le site de Ancestry j'ai découvert que tu avais fait des recherces sur le nom des Gorry. J'ai trouve un site sur Planète généalogie ou j'ai remonté jusqu'aux arrières-arrières-arrières grand parents de Grand-mère Gorry et Grand père Gorry. Si cela t'intéresse tu peux m'écrire à mon adresse courriel soit djolico@videotron.ca. Cela me fera un plaisir d'avoir de tes nouvelles. A bientôt

Hi Dave,

Just discovered that an ancestor is a Gorry. Her name is Ellen Gorry born abt 1817. I have her (via her grandchildren birth records) at Newtown, Moate Co.

She married James Meares 19 Nov 1839 in the RC Parish of Tubber & Rosemount.

Haven't found any siblings or parents for her yet; but believe that Newtown, Moate Co, Westmeath is her home area.

thanks Michelle

Re: bitter inheritance

I'm pretty sure there is a Charles Gorry in the tree - not sure where he was born, but there's a Charles Gorry who is my great-grandfather's brother from memory. I've asked my uncle to look at this link as he has the print out of the family tree. He may have some info.



Re: bitter inheritance

Hi Wendy - there are some relatives in Canada. I think they are my mother's cousins. You can email me at mennagower@live.com.au if you like.



Thomas Gorry born Westmeath Ireland abt 1822

2009-09-07 09:08:43Z

My Great Great Grandfather is Thomas Gorry born Westmeath Ireland about 1822.

I have english census records 1841 - 1911 and a copy of the marriage certificate of Thomas Gorry & Julia Crowley 1849 Islington, London, England.

For some reason unknown to me, the surname was changed from Gorry to Gorrie between 1861 and 1871. Looking on the FreeBMD site it appears to have happened around 1865.

By the 1871 census there were 9 living children to Thomas and Julia, so I am hoping that there are lots of relatives out there to help me build some family connections

Re: bitter inheritance

2009-04-30 08:54:19Z

Hi Menna,
Just to say hi, i was originally a Gorry and was adopted out of the family. Hence my family history is somewhat sketchy, although i do have some information. I have a daughter who is eleven who has recently been diagnosed with CPVT. I also suffered a heart conditon with was originally diagnosed as atrial tachycardia although i have had several episodes of collapsing. Since the earlier part of this week i have been retested after and been diagnosed with CPVT after the genetics team have discovered both myself and my daughter share the same gene they think is responsible for CPVT. We are in the process of testing my daughters gene to try and prove that we have inherited this particular gene in the hope it will end unnecessary suffering for the future generations of the wider family. Hope this is of some help to you.
Sorry for intrusion!
Many thanks,
Jackie.

Re: Thomas R Gorry

2009-01-29 14:37:18Z

Coincidentaly my father is a Thomas R Gorry, living on the Isle of Man, born 1949. There are 15 Gorry's listed in the 2008 Isle of Man phone directory still. I'm afraid i don't know as much of my family ancestry as i'd like but if anyone is visiting the Isle of Man to trace their roots they'll find the manx museum staff very helpful http://www.gov.im/mnh/heritage/museums/manxMuseum.xml The island is currently constructing a Manx Ancestry Centre to help with geneaology which should open 2010.

Hi Frank : thanks for your info. My daughter has the same thing that is why when I read your mesasage about the heart problem I wondered if it was a heriditary thing. Glad you are doing so well at your young age. thanks for the info God bless Wendy



Re: bitter inheritance

2008-12-01 01:56:31Z

Hi Wendy
My Gorry family and relatives started out in County Westmeath in the early 1800s.
Some went to Scotland and and others went to Australia.
I don't know of any Gorrys who went to North America except one who seemed to have went there after being involved in a murder ! Not one of mine :o).
Having Atrial Fibrillation hasn't affected me much,I'm fit for my age,now 76,and recently had my appendix out.

I'm taking 5 mg of Warfarin and 180mg of Tiazac per day..the heart specialist started me on 240mg of Diltiazem per day and I swelled up like a balloon,so I cut it down myself and then changed it to 140mg of Tiazac.

Regards
Frank McGonigal Brampton Ont.




Re: bitter inheritance

My grandparents are Armand Ovela Gorry born June 3 1881 in Quebec he married Marie Edith Bosse Born July 15 1883 . Armands parents were Cyrille Gorry and Melina Hines-Hayes. Edith parents were Georges Bosse and Hermine Boucher. My father one of their children was Ronald Horace Gorry born Nov. 17 1916 and died July 17 1954. In the obituary of Papa Armand it says he has one brother Horace living L'Oringinal Ontario. Also I found the wedding ceremony of my father's brother Joseph Armand Edward Gorry to Irene Dubeau in St. Jean Berchmans church montreal. It also says Aunt of the groom Miss Rejane Gorry of Montreal was there. Could this be the same person . Any Info would be great Thanks

Re: All Gorry's with ancestors from I.O.M.

2007-12-31 15:39:12Z

Hi James
I don't know if you're still about as your message was obviously posted quite some time ago, but I hope you are!
I have recently discovered a rather sad connection of a James Gorry to my own family. My Gt Grandmother, Jessie had a baby (out of wedlock) Margaret, who was described as a 'delicate baby' on her baptism record - I suspect Margaret died, because I can find no further mention of her. However, in the parish record, James Gorry is cited as the father.
Because I have no further info about him, I can't be sure of where he came from, or indeed what became of him. My family were all living in Maughold, Ramsey, Isle of Man, but if he was a casual labourer, he could have travelled from anywhere on the island.
I'd love to hear from you if you get this message.
Regards
Maggie

Re: John Gorry - County Meath - 1815?

2007-04-20 23:20:54Z

Do you know if John had any younger sisters?
I have a Catherine Gorry born to parents Michael and Lizzie (nee-O'Toole) Gorry in Meath roughly in 1833.
I am under the impression that its not a very common surname.



Re: Just To say Hi

2007-04-02 21:23:48Z

Hi
I'd like to have a wee chat with you about the GORRY surname.
My grandmother was Margaret Gorry from Co.Westmeath Ire..
I've always suspected that the GORRYs came from the Isle of Man.

Re: bitter inheritance

2007-04-02 20:35:33Z

My grandmother was Margaret GORRY born 1868 in Moate Co.Westmeath Ireland.
Recently I have been diagnosed with Atrial Fibrilation,which is similar to the "GORRY CURSE",fast and erratic heartbeat.
But I'm 74 years old and I'm on drug treatment for it,taking Warfarin and Diltiazem.

John Gorry - County Meath - 1815?

2006-05-31 16:58:49Z

Can anybody assist identifying links to JOHN GORRY, born County Meath around 1815?
He joined the Royal Irish Constabulary in 1836, transferring to County Armagh, where he served his entire service (Upper Creggan & Seagoe) until retirement in 1873.
He married ANNE MULLEN (Meath) in 1845. They had the following children - THOMAS (16 Sept 1848), MARY (7 Oct 1850), JOHN (1 Sept 1852), JANE (12 Aug 1854) & ANNE (1 Nov 1856).
John Gorry was the first of a long line of law enforcement officers within our family. It would be great to establish any other links.

The Leece Museum in Peel, IOM is an excellent source of information. We visited Peel in 2002, and discovered that a history of Peel Gorrys had been written as a school project. We may have purchased their last copy, in which case I could make photocopy what I have and send it to you.

I'm a descendant from the Gorrys of the Isle of Man. Apparently, most of them were located in the district of Peel. I know my great-grandfather moved to Liverpool, but can't remember when. We have Gorry relatives living in Canada also.
