Coffee (Coffey, Coffy) Families in Swinford (Meelick and Kilconduff) Roman Catholic Parish Records with Spouse's Surname J-L

There are additional details in these records such as date of birth, sponsors, priests, and at times notes in the margin detailing marriages and deaths. If you feel that your family is in this compilation, please feel free to contact me and I will share with you the additional details.

The early years of this film have been extremely hard to read. I am finding numerous families with what appears to be the Caffel or Coffel surname and not Coffee. They include the marriages of Thomas Kelly and Brigida Caffle in 1854 (baptism of Maria in 1856, Patricius in 1857, a child in 1859, Joannes in 1863), Joannus Kilgallon and Brigida Caffle in 1856 (baptism of Martinus in 1859, Mathaeus in 1862, a child in 1865, Antonius in 1866 and Brigida in 1871). Caffels were noted in the following baptisms: Francis (1856) of Gulielmus Lyons and Brigida Cafle, Thomas (1866) of Patritius Caffle and Brigida Johnston, Margarita (1880) of Patritius Caffle and Honora Kelly.

I have saved them in an excel file but I have not included them in this section at this point because I don't feel they are Coffee Families. If you believe your Coffee or Coffel family is in this Catholic Parish please contact me as I would be happy to share more detailed information with you.

I have noted the following marriage records for Caffels in film 926020: And'w Kelly and Elenor Kelly (2/18/1833), Edmund Caffel and Cath Lewan? (3/8/1840).There are many baptisms for Caffels in this film as well. I am documenting them in an excel file. Please contact me if you feel that your family may be in these records.
