Welcome to Our Joyce Family Tree

Our Joyce's originated in County Carlow, Ireland. Some of the family of James Joyce emigrated to Boston and New York.  Others left Ireland and settled in Australia.

{Under Construction: This family tree is an exercise to learn about Microsoft’s Front Page and to prepare information about the Joyce Family. Material has been collected and compiled by Bob Joyce and Rob Joyce.}

Original research by John A. Joyce of, of Whitehall House, Graignamanagh, County Carlow, Ireland.

The children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Edward Joyce and Mary Doyle   will be presented here. Edward and Mary emigrated from Ireland and settled in the Central New York area about 1911. (Picture of Joyce homestead in Borris, County Carlow, Ireland)

On a trip to Ireland February 2-4, 1990, my wife Judy and I had the pleasure of visiting with my Grandfather Ed's nephew, Jim Joyce. He provided me with 11 pages of handwritten notes on the Joyce Family history. John Joyce, of Whitehall House, Graignamanagh, County Carlow, Ireland signs it. (See revision by daughter above.) The date given as August 4, 1989. Rob Joyce has since this time collected documents and information about our forefathers from the National Archives in Washington, DC. (See Edward Joyce)

One verbal story passed on to me by Jim Joyce went as follows:

Long ago when Kings ruled Ireland, one King Seamus wrote to the King of Spain asking for 500 pairs of brogues (boots) to be sent to Ireland. The King of Spain misread the note and sent 500 pairs of rogues. They, of course, became the Joyces.
