      Yes, I read that Kilcornan Townland was once called Kilcornan House Townland. I think Kilkishen is also a parish(?) or an electoral district(?).

      So was Killeen living in a house named Kilcornan House, or somewhere else in the townland that had once been known as Kilcornan House?

        I suppose the rather large-looking pub online is not the original KH building.


        The Galway KH tends to get in the way when searching.


        Maybe contact these people?

          Is the pub in Clare? There is a KH pub in Limerick.

                  Judging by his numerous appearances in court, Timís dad, Michael, was a bit of a tartar. In addition to the punch-ups, we see him trying to evict tenants and prosecute them for leaving his employment. On at least one occasion an employee sued him for unpaid wages, on another he was fined for being drunk in charge of a horse and cart. And then thereís the bloody dogs! What was it about the Killeens that they thought they were above the law in that respect, even when there were rabies scares?

                  If we want to get a handle on Timís psychological development, we might want to investigate Michael a bit further. A bit like Ma Lechmereís influence on her son. 😉

                      Maybe his dad was proud of him for becoming a doc. Or maybe it was a case of 'cow dung not good enough for you, eh?'

                        I wonder if Tim operated as MHO/registrar out of the family home?

                        Presumably thatís still there. Has anyone lifted the floorboards?

                          He was at his family's home in 1901 and 1911. Interestingly his brother James, aged about 30 in 1901, had no occupation. Maybe it was a rather small farm.

                            In 1911, the Killeens had two servants living in. For their household, 11 ‘out-offices and outbuildings’ were recorded. Theirs was a second class house with 5/6 rooms. They also had a tenant, Patrick Devitt, living in a smaller house nearby. In 1901, they had had a 17-year-old servant named Patt Devitt in their household, presumably the same person. Devitt’s house was 3rd class and had 2/3 rooms.

                            An 1876 list of Clare landowners shows Michael Killeen with 340 acres in Clonfeigh.

                              Harness Room
                              Cow House
                              Calf House
                              Dairy
                              Piggery

                                Hereís a thought, although Tim may not have had much exposure to human dissection through his medical training, he may have watched/helped his father butcher pigs on occasion.
