Outline Family Origins - Boyle, Roscommon

Roscommon was the ancient capital of Connacht. The county that gave ancient Ireland its last High King and modern Ireland its first President. Co. Roscommon is an inland county 100km in length from the top of the Arigna valley in the north to Shannonbridge in the south, with a breath of 64km at its greatest width.

The River Shannon is the boundary in the east and the River Suck in most of the west. Two-thirds of the county is bounded by water. In the north are the largest lakes - Lough Key, Lough Gara and Lough Boderg - with the great Lough Ree in the east.

At least three of the families found in England seem to have come from this part of Ireland. There has been little progress in tracing these families back further but there is at least a chance that they are related. The following parish record entries, taken from the LDS British Isles Vital Records Index CDs, might give some clues to any family historian looking for ancestors here. [Update: this same information should now be available online at FamilySearch]
