Brennan Families in Balla and Manulla Roman Catholic Parish Records with Spouse's Surnames M-N

Regarding Surname Malloy: Mary's baptismal record in 1842 has a Townland I had trouble deciphering that appears to be Ruorkin. There are no Townlands in Balla, Manulla or Drum Civil Parishes resembling Ruorkin. There is a Roslahan Upper in Drum, although that is quite a stretch.

Regarding the Baptismal record for Ann Brennan in 1838: Ann's Father's last name appears to be Brennan, but it could be Brown. There are Browns in this record and at times they are hard to differentiate when the record is poor.

Regarding Surname McDermott: Pat and Honor Brennan sponsored the baptism of Mary on August 10, 1868. Bridget Brennan? appears to be the sponsor for the baptism of Jas Brennan on May 15, 1872.

Regarding Surname McDonogh: Honor Brennan witnessed the marriage of Michael McDonogh and Bridget Brennan on September 10, 1863.

Regarding Surname McDonnell: The Town mentioned in Elleanor's Baptism appeared to be Lakilan. I couldn't find any similar towns in Balla, Manulla or Drum, only Lisnolan comes close in Manulla Civil Parish. The Baptismal record for Thos Brennan on October 22, 1859 was sponsored by Thos and Biddy Brennan in the Townland of Derreans (likely Derreen in Manulla or Drum Civil Parish).

Regarding surname McGreal: In the Baptismal record for Anne Brennan, daughter of Mary Brennan and Ric McGreal, Julia Brennan was one of her sponsors. Peter McGreal's Baptismal record lists Cloonlinskahan as the Townland; there is a Cloonlynchaghaun in Drum Civil Parish. Anthony MacGreal's parents Thos and Bridget MacGreal are from Ballacloher. I believe this is Ballyclogher, a Townland in Balla Civil Parish.

Regarding Surname McGuiren: Wetherford (most probably Weatherfort) is a Townland in Rosslee Civil Parish, a parish that lies just south of Balla, Manulla and Drum Civil Parishes.

Regarding Surname McHugh: Mary Brennan's parents (1838)are listed as having been from Kilm. This is recorded for several records on this page. I couldn't find a Townland of that name in Balla, Manulla or Drum Civil Parish. Mary (1845) has Kelnageer listed as her parent's Townland. I think that they were referring to Kilnageer in Drum Civil Parish. Derriens is likely Derreen in Drum or Manulla Civil Parish.

Regarding Surname Mitchell: Mch Brennan sponsored the baptism of Mary Brennan on May 6, 1877.

Regarding Surname Motehil: The record for the Baptism of Thomas in February 1874 was difficult to read. His mother's surname appears to be Motehil, but one sponsor is Metohl. M Brennan was the other sponsor. I am wondering if this surname could possibly be Mitchell as noted above?

Regarding Surname Mulinome: Pat Brennan sponsored the baptism of Mary Mulinone. The Townland mentioned was Cloonaconnor. I couldn't find a Townland resembling that in Balla, Manulla or Drum Civil Parish. There is a Cloonconor in Kilcolman Civil Parish, Clanmorris Barony (southeast of the above mentioned parishes).

Regarding Surname Mullen: Jas Brennan witnessed the marriage of Pat Brennan and Mary Muellin on January 12, 1871. Ellen Brennan sponsored the baptism of John Brennan on April 9, 1872. Jno and Bridget Brennan sponsored the baptism of Martin Brennan April 29. 1882. His mother's name appears to be Millin, though I think it is probably Mullen.
