Research provided by John A. Joyce (Click here to read)

John Joyce (1) was a farmer, lived at Kilmison in the house now, in 1989, occupied by Terrence Kelley and his family. John married Bridget Fenlon (2). He is buried at Ballymurphy. In the 1820's John and five other male Joyces rented one hundred and forty-eight Irish acres and two rods. (approximately 250 statue acres) from the Kavanagh family of Borris House. (Ref: Kavanagh Rent Records at Borris House). The farm was held under a "partnership" lease with John (senior) who acted as "headman" being responsible for payment of rent, etc. In the Kavanagh Records the land is divided into six equal parts (as hereunder). Such a division would not coincide with the physical lay out of the farm but this type of lease arrangement was common in the early 19th century. The division was as follows:

Bridget Fenlon (2). is buried at Ballymurphy with her husband. It is possible that she was a member of the Fenlon family of Newtown, Borris. Though Jim Joyce (3) did not know his great grandmother's name, he told me that he had heard from his father that the Joyces and the Fenlons of Newtown were related. This connection may have come through John & Bridget.

Here are the beginnings of the Joyce Family Tree in outline form.
