Hello, 
My ancestor's gravestone says he was born in Killinicklinnan in 1822. 
I can find Killinick in County Wexford, but no "Killinicklinnan."  Any info you can provide will 
be much appreciated!

Hello Maureen, 

This is a good question! I've been looking around for the name Killinicklinnan, but it doesn't seem to pop up anywhere. Just like you, the only name I've found that is similar, is Killinick in Wexford. 

Since we know your ancestor was born in 1822, we could try to find him in the church records for County Wexford. Do you know his full name? 

I hope some of our genealogy experts will be able to shine a light on this as well! :)

Well, this is a long shot as I  know the area well ... 

Killinick is a village and is close to three different castles in the area.  They are ruins and one you can stay beside at Killiane Castle. 

Linnan means Castle in Finnish but as far as I can tell there is no townland named Killinicklinnan.  It might mean Killinick castle or it could mean pond in Irish. I've asked around so when I get a reply, I'll let you know. 

What is your ancestor's name?

Best,
Ginger

Thanks so much for your reply! My ancestor was Edmond Fitzgerald, born in 1822. 
I really appreciate your  help.

Thanks so much for the additional information, Maureen! Hopefully this will lead to more insight into where Edmund was from. :) 

Before 1864 records were kept in the form of church and parish records; while some of these have regrettably been lost over the years, all the surviving records have been sorted into county-based genealogical centres. I had a browse through the church records and wasn't able to find anything for Edmond myself, but maybe the centre in Wexford can help you clear things up. 

Where is Edmonds grave located? Do you perhaps have a photo or screenshot of the information on there? 

Hopefully Ginger will find out more as well, so fingers crossed! :)
