Author: brian_marren Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.marren/72.3.1.1.1.1.1.1.2.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hello Karen! Nice to hear from you again. Hey, maybe I'm reading the tree you attached on the previous post wrong, but I don't see any of my branch of the Marren's from Dawros listed. As far as the links you provided above, I'm afraid ancestry.com will not allow me to view them, as I am not a paid subscriber. I believe our different Marren families lived on neighbouring farms, both located off the main road through Dawros. There were some marriages between the two families over the generations, but I was unable to locate a root male surnamed Marren who may have been the original ancestor connecting both of our branches of Marren's. My research can only reach back to a Thomas Marren, born aprx. 1815 in Dawros and his wife Anne, nee Whyte, from Coolaney. I can reproduce a portion of the original message I posted commencing this thread. This will give you a little more detail of who is who. One reminder, there were at least two, maybe more, sets of Thomas Marren's and Bridget Durkin's from Dawros marrying around this time, so that might be causing the confusion with your tree. Here is what I know about my branch of the Marren's from Dawros: My great-great-grand father, Thomas Marren, a joiner and farmer from Dawros, County Sligo was born aprx. 1810-1820. He was married to an Anne Whyte, an Anglo-Irish Protestant girl who's family supposedly hailed from Coolaney, County Sligo. They had 6 children. I have discovered that the Whyte family may have moved to Sligo from Yorkshire via Derry. I don't know when they arrived in Ireland, but I believe Anne's mother's maiden name was either Levingston (Livingston) or Middleton. She and Thomas Marren bore the following children: 1.) John - born: Early 1840s - Descendents are named Marren, Ambrose, Sullivan, Waldren and McDonnough. Mary Kate Ambrose is a descendent of John Marren. Many from this branch still live in and around the town of Curry and the surrounding region. Several from this branch also immigrated to America and now live in the Boston/Gloucester/Salem, MASS. Paddy Marren, who was a Sligo County Councilor was one of the most notable descendents of John Marren, as was our cousin, Louie McDonnough (deceased) who was the last of the Marren family to reside on our ancestral farm in Dawros. 2.) Catherine (?) - born: Early 1840s - Married a man named Arthur O'Hara. Many of their descendents live in Sligo/Mayo border area, including a Garda named, Arthur O'Hara. 3.) Mary (Maria)- baptised: 17 April 1845 - Married a Patrick Durkin (Durcan). Many of the Durcan's still live in the Curry area. 4.) Anne - baptised: 25 August 1847 - Married a man named either Durkin or Stenson. Descendents live in Dawros and Charlestown area. Many of who are surnamed Stenson. 5.) Thomas - baptised: 27 May 1854 - Descendents live in the Buffalo, New York in the USA. Thomas married Bridget Durkin, the sister of Patrick Durkin, who was married to Thomas' sister Mary (Maria). Thomas, just like his father Thomas Sr, was a skilled joiner by trade. He immigrated to Buffalo, New York in May 1888, but was tragically killed while working on the railway there in September 1888. He left a wife, 4 boys and 1 daughter back in Dawros. His widow, along with three of their sons and the daughter came over to America in stages between 1892 and 1906. The one remaining son in Ireland died as a boy while swimming in the River Moy, near Dawros. Another son, who like his father Thomas before him, was killed as a teenager shortly after his arrival in Buffalo, while he too was working as a switchman on the railway. The descendants of Thomas Marren and Bridget Durkin mostly reside in the Buffalo, New York area. They were born to Thomas and Bridget's surviving three chi! ldren: James, Maria (Olive) and Patrick. I am one of the direct descendants of Thomas and Bridget Durkin through their son, my grandfather, James Marren. 6.) James - baptised: 19 April 1857 - Little is known of the youngest brother except that he was a tailor by trade and immigrated as a very young man to Derby, Connecticut. His family still lives in that region. We know little, if anything at all, about this branch. It's terribly unfortunate we lost contact with this branch, as what little I have heard of them, they seem like a most interesting family. So there you have it, Karen. That's just about all I know of our Marren's from Dawros. Please straighten me out if I am reading your family tree correctly, but it is my belief that the Thomas Marren and Bridget Durkin listed on there are a different couple from the Thomas Marren and Bridget Durkin in my family. I'm not sure if the Mary Kate Ambrose connection you have on that tree is correct, as she should be descended from John Marren, born early 1840s, and the oldest son of the original Thomas Marren and Anne Whyte. All the best, Karen, and good luck researching the different Marren families of Dawros! -Brian Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

My name is Brian Marren, and I am originally from Buffalo, New York, but I currently reside in Liverpool, England. I don't mean to confuse you, but I think there is something you might be interested in about all the Marren families residing in Dawros. According to Irish census records, my Marren family lived next door to your Marren's in Dawros. And even more coincidental is that family also had a Thomas Marren married to a Bridget Durkin (Durcan). Undoubtedly, we are related somehow, but it must go back several generations, and I haven't found the root. Your Marren's (...who sometimes spell the name Marron) have a large branch who settled in Chicago. The family tree you see posted on this thread by Tracey illustrates your branch of Marren's, not ours. And because of the similarity in names (eg. at least one set of a Thomas Marren being married to Bridget Durkin), I think a few of the people inquiring on this thread are getting confused. Believe me, it is confusing, I know....I just wish we Marren's were a bit more original when naming our children. The surname Marren to be ubiquitous in that sliver of Sligo, and most will have a Thomas or a Bridget counted in their families. If not Thomas, then there will undoubtedly be a John, Patrick or James for the males and a Mary, Catherine or Elizabeth in the stead of a Bridget. This makes genealogical research for the Marren family especially difficult....Ha ha!

Author: khtillberg Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.marren/72.1.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hi Brian, I was very interested to see your message on the rootsweb internet site, concerning the Marren family. It is so nice that you have been researching the Marren family. I have been trying to learn the history of my Marren family, from Dawros, Ireland. Where is your family from? My great-great-grandmother was named Bridget Marion May (May was her married name and Marion was an alternative spelling of Marren). She was born in about 1840, and her parents were Mark Marren and Bridget Marren, Sr, both Mark and Bridget having had the same surname, so that Bridget did not need to change her name, upon marriage. I was interested to read your account that the name Marren was brought to Ireland, by 2 brothers, Mark and Thomas, especially since Mark is the name of our ancestor. Also, that you learned that the brothers may have been Spanish merchants. Our family was told that this family might have been Marranos (Sephardic Jews expelled by the Inquisition) originally, and later became Roman Catholic. Do you know any more about the family? Are you living in Liverpool? I live near Boston, Massachusetts. This branch of the Marren family had immigrated to the US, in the Newark, NJ area, I think, though we are told that Marrens immigrated to other nations, as well.

Author: irishpubsinger Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.marren/72.5/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Let me see where I fit in? I am the grandson of Thomas Marren (Dawros), and Bridget Marren nee Durkin (Curry). My Father was Martin Marron (Dawros, England, San Francisco, Chicago, late of Tourlestrane). Born April 19th, 1919, died suddenly May 19th, 2007. I have the last hand written letter sent by Bridget Marren nee Durkin to her sons Fr. James Marron and my father, Martin who were then living in San Francisco at the time of her death in 1950. I have a hand written letter written by Thomas Marren (Dawros) to his same two sons. It was a letter that was penned shortly after Bridget's death. I have a photograph of the old four room cottage (originally three rooms), the home of Thomas and Bridget Marren, Dawros circa 1950's. This cottage, I believed spanned four generations of Marrens. Potions of it remain standing to this day. Also, I have photograph's of Thomas and Bridget when they both attended the ordination of their son James Marron (then Marren) in Maynooth. I'm pretty sure my Great Grandparents (Thomas Marren and Catherine Marren nee Gallagher) were burried in the old cemetery in Banada, whereas, Thomas Marren and Bridget Marren nee Durkin are buried in the new cemetery in Rhue. They are survived by Elizabeth (Lizzy) Conry, Birmingham, Thomas (Tommy Marren), Dawros and Luke Marren, Chicago. The original gravestone in Rhue cemetery was erected with the name spelled Marron in the 1950's. It was replaced in the late 90's and no change to the spelling of Marron was made at that time. This fact was pointed out to Tommy Marren (Dawros) in 2007 when I overheard him say: "It sticks out like a sore thumb!". And it does. As far as the "EN" - "ON" controversy perpetuated by some, it's a controversy about nothing. The family name is undeniably "Marren" - the end (probably not). It is my understanding, as told to me by my father Martin Marron, that it begins (and I'm no historian) with the immigration of the Dawros clergy Matthew, Michael (Brother Jarlath), etc. I believe there were spelling mix ups upon entering the United States. I know that when my father immigrated he was sponsored by Fr. James Marron. Rather than be questioned by the authorities, it was decided that it would be easier for my father to assume the Marron spelling in the same way Fr. James Marron did when he was a sponsored immigrant to Fr. Matthew Marron. How far back it goes I have no idea. The footnote to the story is that both the old and the newer gravestones erected in Rhue cemetery were put there by Fr. James Marron which may explain the spelling. However, in 2006 I was told by my father that towards the end of his life, old Thomas Marren (husband of Bridget Marren nee Durkin) was occasionally signing his name with an "o". So, although my name is spelled Marron, I'm in fine company. And the beat goes on.

James Marren branch. James Joseph Marren (Sr) is my Great, Great Grandfather (b. 1859 in County Sligo, d. 1944 Derby, Connecticut). He married Mary A. Rooney and had 8 children. One of those, my Great Grandmother, was Catherine Viola Marren (b. 1891 in Derby, Connecticut and d. 1974 in Derby, Connecticut). She married James Arthur Carroll (b. 1890 in Torrington, Connecticut and d. 1973 in Derby, Connecticut). They together had four children, one of whom is my grandmother, who lives in Derby, Connecticut. Karen, I've been examining the tree you uploaded, and I have to admit I'm having trouble with it. I see where the Durkin-Marren relationship comes in, but the Marren side itself is a little more confusing. Is there any indication of an Anne Whyte being the mother of Thomas Marren (Jr) or husband to Thomas Marren (Sr)? If I'm reading this correctly (very possible that I'm not), it would appear that Thomas Jr is the son of Thomas Sr and a Catherine Gallagher.

My father was John Patrick Ambrose (her second son and third child of the five children she had) and my dad passed away in May 2012. We are from the North Shore area of Massachusetts. (Although I have been living in Maine since attending college her in the late 1970s) I started to investigate our geneology a little bit before we lost my father but never knew very much specific about Nana's background. We knew we were Irish of course, but not lots more than that. Dad told us that when Nana (Mary Kate) came to the US in the 1920s she had been "sponsored" by the Durkin family in Salem, Mass. To work as domestic. The Durkins were a fairly prestigious family in Salem and I can recall at least one member of that family who was a respected judge in Massachusetts. I know that Mary Kate Marren came to Massachusetts as well as did her brother, John. They did not come together but I do not know who left Ireland first although I think it was John. John still has children living in the North Shore area today as do most of my family through Nana (Mary Kate).l Mary Kate Marren married William Ambrose and they had 5 children: William (Mike), Mary Elizabeth (Betty), John (Jack), Paul, and Judith ( Judy). At the time of this posting, Judy is the only one who is still alive.

Your information has been invaluable and thank you very much. From your attachment I can verify that I am a decendant of the Durkins on the top left of your tree. Mary Durkin is my grandmother and Bridget Durkin married Thomas Marren. I have come across at least two photos that I would like to share with you. I've attached one and this is most of the Durkins. Bridget is on the far right in the front row. My email address is perkins_aj@hotmail.com A big thanks to Brian for his info too. regards Joan Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
