PHILIP KAVANAGH Leeds, UK Aug 21, 2001
Can anyone help me find the parents of a John Kavanagh born 1758 - 63 who came to England in 1775 - 80 and married a woman by the name of Elizabeth , she came from a place in Ripon Yorkshire and in 1793 they were living in Hunslet Leeds Yorkshire and had two children one was a Thomas Kavanagh the other was A Maria Kavanagh Thomas was born 1793 Maria was born 1795 on church record their name was in latin hence John's name was spelled like this >> Johnnis Caviner as was Thomas's and Marias but I have also the census for 1851 and on this is Thomas who then had spelled his name like Kavanagh so and was 58 years old hence this was the right one as anyway there were very few Kavanagh's in England and only my family in Leeds who eventually had also the name Cavanagh so it is point of fact that almost all Kavanagh's / Cavanagh's that come from Leeds or Yorkshire are most probably linked to my family one way or another . Here is a rundown of the family from 120 AD to 1691 then from 1758 to now . I hope that this will help someone as they are all correct and this is without doubt .THE LINEAGE OF THE KAVANAGH KINGS OF LEINSTER

DOMHANALL MACMURCHADA / MacMURROUGH // CAOMHANACH ( IS THE GEALIC FOR >KAVANAGH / HERE IS WHERE THERE WAS CONFLICT AS TO WHO WAS INFACT THE KING OF LEINSTER , AND WHY IS BECAUSE THE ENGLISH SAY THAT IT WAS THE SECOND EARL OF PEMBROKE THAT WAS RULER OF LEINSTER AT THIS TIME WHEN INFACT IT WAS DOMHANALL THE SON OF DIARMAIT MACMURCHADA WHO WAS NEXT IN LINE TO THE THRONE OF LEINSTER FOR HE WAS THE ELDEST SON AND ANYWAY IT WAS IRISH BRHEON LAW THAT MADE HIM KING AND KING WAS HE FOR THE BEST PART OF FOUR YEARS FROM 1171 AT THE DEATH OF HIS FATHER TO ( 1175 ) BECAME KING AND RULER OF LEINSTER , CONTRARY TO THE ENGLISH TEXT BOOKS AS THIS ON THE SIDE OF THE ENGLISH WAS JUST ANOTHER BLATANT LIE THAT WOULD GIVE THEM POWER OVER IRELAND , BUT THIS DID NOT HAPPEN UNTILL THE 17th CENTURY WHEN CROMWELL SENT TROUPS TO MASSACRE THE PEOPLE OF IRELAND IN ( 1643 )
DE CLARE EXECUTED DOMHANALLS SON MURTOG / MURTAG AND ALSO ART MACMORROUGH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH IN ( 1282 ) BY BEHEADING THEM AT THE PORT OF ARKLOW , THEY HAD BEEN INVITED OVER FOR PEACE TALKS , BUT ON THEIR ARIVAL THEY WERE SEIZED.
ALL BECAUSE UNDER IRISH BRHEON LAW DE CLARE HAD NO RIGHTS TO THE RULER OF LEINSTER THOUGH HE DID TRY FOR THIS .
BUT WAS REFUSED BY BRHEON LAW AND THEY THE IRISH PEOPLE ELECTED ,
DOMHANALL AS KING OF LEINSTER ---- ( 1171 TO 1175 ) NEXT WAS ---
DOMHANALL OGE -- KING OF LEINSTER -- ( 1175 TO 1228 ) SON OF ( DOMHANALL CAOMHANACH ) --- NEXT WAS --
DOMHANALL MAC MUIRCEARTEACH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH KING OF LEINSTER ( 1228 TO 1260 ) THE SON OF ( DOMHANALL OGE CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) --- NEXT CAME --
MURTAG MACDOMHANALL CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH -- KING OF LEINSTER ( 1260 TO 1282 ) SON OF ( DOMHANALL MAC MUIRCEARTEACH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) --- NEXT WAS
MUIRCEARTEACH MAC DOMHANALL CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH --- KING OF LEINSTER ( 1282 TO 1355 ) THE SON OF ( MURTAG CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) NEXT WAS --
ART MOR CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH --- KING OF LEINSTER ( 1355 TO 1355 END OF YEAR ) ( SON OF MUIRCEARTEACH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) ---
NEXT WAS ---
ART OGE CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ( SON OF ART MOR CAOMHANACH ) --- CHEIF OF THE NAME AND ALSO OF THE CLAN AND BECAME -- KING OF LEINSTER FROM THE DEATH OF HIS FATHER IN ( 1355 TO 1417 ) AND ON THE 1st OF JANUARY 1417 ART OGE WAS ASSASSINATED WITH A CUP OF POISONED WINE -- AT HIS DEATH HIS SON ( DOMHANALL MAC ART CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) WAS GIVEN THE LANDS OF CARLOW WEST OF THE BLACKSTAIRS MOUNTAIN RANGE , AND HIS OTHER SON ( GEROLD MAC ART CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) WAS GIVEN THE LANDS OF WEXFORD EAST OF THE BLACKSTAIRS MOUNTAN RANGE .
GEROLD THE SON OF ( ART OGE CAOMHANACH ) NEXT WAS ---
DOMHANALL REAGH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH --- ( THE SON OF GEROLD CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) WHO BECAME THE SENIOR RULING LINE OF THE KAVANAGH CLAN .
ART BUI CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH WAS THE SON OF ( DOMHANALL REAGH ) AND WAS ALSO THE GRANDSON OF ( MURTAGH ) SUCCEEDED IN MAINTAINING THE CLANS INDEPENDANCE BUT ENGLISH ENCROACHMENT INCREASED , THE CHEIFTAINSHIP OF THE CLAN CONTINUED IN THE SENIOR LINE THROUGH THE DESCENDANTS OF ( DOMHANALL REAGH CAOMHANACH ) , BUT THEIR ATTEMPTS TO KEEP THE CLAN LANDS RESULTED IN CONSTANT VIOLENCE WITH THE ENGLISH , AND IN 1538 ( CAHIR CARACH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH ) WAS KILLED AND HIS SON ( DONNACHADA ) WAS EXECUTED IN ( 1583 ) DOMHANALL SPAINEACH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH -- THE SON OF ( DONNACHADA KAVANAGH ) AND LEADER IN THE NINE YEARS WAR IN THE 1590'S REMAINED IN REBELLION UNTIL HE WAS KILLED IN ( 1631 ) THEN SIR MORGAN SPAINEACH CAOMHANACH / KAVANAGH THE SON OF ( DOMHANALL SPAINEACH KAVANAGH ) CONTINUED THE FIGHT AGAINST THE ABOLITION OF CLAN RIGHTS AS LEADER IN THE ( 1641 ) REBELLION DURING WHICH HE WAS SLAIN .
THE SONS OF SIR MORGAN KAVANAGH / WERE DANIEL AND CHARLES CAOMHANACH KAVANAGH ) AND IN ( 1643 ) THEY RESUMED THE FIGHT WITH SIR MORGANS REGIMENT FOR THE CATHOLIC CONFEDERACY , UNTIL THEY WERE FINALLY DEFEATED BY THE ARMIES OF OLIVER CROMWELL .
THEY WERE BOTH SENT TO PRISON BY CROMWELL , AND AFTER THEIR RELEAS FROM PRISON DANIEL WAS EXPELLED FROM HIS LANDS , AND WENT TO SPAIN TO LIVE THE REST OF HIS LIFE .
CROMWELL DIED IN ( 1658 ) AND CHARLES FLED TO FRANCE WITH HIS SONS .
CHARLES RETURNED FOR ONE LAST FIGHT DURING THE JACOBEAN WAR OF ( 1691 ) BUT THE CLAN WAS DESTROYED .
HOWEVER THERE WERE OTHER BRANCHES OF THE CLAN , AND BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT CONFORM TO THE NEW ENGLISH RELIGION THEY HAD THEIR LANDS TAKEN FROM THEM AND WERE KILLED OR SOLD AS SLAVES TO THE ENGLISH AND OTHER PARTS OF THE ENGLISH EMPIRE , .
THE FEW THAT WERE ABLE TO STAY BECAME THE TENANTS OF THE ENGLISH OVERLORDS , AND THEY WERE MADE TO PAY TO THEM RENTS FOR THE THINGS THAT WERE ORIGINALY OUR OWN .
THE NAME KAVANAGH AND IT'S MANY VARIATIONS ARE MOSTLY BECAUSE THE ENGLISH DID NOT KNOW HOW TO SPELL THE NAME THOUGH KAVANAGH IS THE ORIGINAL WAY AND REMAINS SO TODAY AS CAN BE SEEN IN MANY CITY'S AND COUNTRY'S THROUGHOUT THE WORLD .
THE CLAN KAVANAGH NEVER STOPED AND TODAY IF THEY WERE ALL TO MEET YOU WOULD PROBABLY HAVE ONE OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST ARMIES , AND BY WAY OF THE INTERNET IT IS POINT OF FACT THAT THE KAVANAGH'S ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE NOW BEGUN TO SEARCH FOR LONG LOST RELATIVES , SO WHO KNOWS ONE DAY THERE MAY BE A MEETING OF THE CLAN .

EVA MACMURROUGH / MACMORROUGH DID MARRIE THE THEN LORD OF LEINSTER AND SECOND EARL OF PEMBROKE RICHARD DE CLARE IN ( 1171 ) AND AOFE ( EVA ) MACMURROUGH DID BECOME THE COUNTESS OF LEINSTER --- AGAIN THERE IS HERE CONFUSION AS TO WHO BECAME KING OR RULER OF LEINSTER THOUGH THE NEXT COUNTES WAS, ISABEL DE CLARE--->COUNTESS OF STRIGOIL ( WAS THE DAUGHTER OF RICHARD DE CLARE STRONGBOW THE NORMAN KNIGHT AND SHE MARRIED WILLIAM MARSHALL--->WILLIAM MARSHAL-EARL OF PEMBROKE LORD OF LEINSTER (VIA MARRIAGE TO ISABEL)

1640 1658 when Cromwell put his own men in place. NEXT, MEINHARD VON SCHOMBERG------>DUKE OF LEINSTER------AFTER CROMWELLS MEN AS OVERLORDS STOLE THE LAND AND THE MEN HE CALLED SOLDIERS , WHO WERE INFACT NOTHING MORE THAN MURDERERS , RAPISTS AND CHILD KILLERS, OF THE IRISH MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN .
CROMWELL WON THE KAVANAGH'S , BUT ONLY AFTER HE AND HIS MEN HAD STARVED THE IRISH HALF TO DEATH , SO AS TO MAKE THEM TOO WEAK TO FIGHT AND WHEN THEY WERE TOO WEAK TO FIGHT HE MERSILESLY AND SYSTEMATICALY MASSACRED THE REST OF THE MACMURROUGHS / KAVANAGHS .
THE ROYAL LINE STILL CONTINUES TO THIS DAY , BUT THE QUESTION THAT I WOULD ASK IS THIS WHO KNOWS FOR SURE WHO THE RIGHTFUL HAIRS SHOULD BE SINCE THE LAST RIGHTFUL HAIR WOULD HAVE BEEN WITHOUT DOUBT CHARLES KAVANAGH IN 1691WHO FOUGHT IN THE JACOBIAN WAR AGAINST THE ENGLISH WITH HIS FATHER SIR MORGAN KAVANAGH'S REGIMENT AND THE BROTHER DANIEL WHO FLED TO SPAIN .

IT IS POINT OF FACT THAT ALL THE KAVANAGH'S HOW SO EVER THE NAME MAY BE SPELLED ARE DESCENDANTS OF THE KING DONEL KAVANAGH AND THE SON'S OF THE SON'S OF ALL THE REST OF WHAT WAS LEFT OF THE FAMILY .

WHO AT THE TIME HAD BEEN LORDS AND EARLS AND WHO KNOWS WHAT OF VAST AMOUNTS OF LAND WHICH WAS TAKEN BY THE ENGLISH BECAUSE WE WOULD NOT CHANGE FROM BEING CATHOLIC TO CHURCH OF ENGLAND .

THERE WERE TWO MISSING EARLS ONE IN 1688 AND ONE IN 1758 IT IS NOW MORE THAN PROBABAL THAT I HAVE TRACED THE LINIAGE TO ONE OF THEM BEING MY G.G.G.G.GRANDFATHER WHO'S NAME WAS JOANNIS/JOHN KAVANAGH HE HAD EMMIGRATED FROM IRELAND IN AROUND 1775 - 80 AND CAME TO ENGLAND, AND IN 1793 HE HAD THIS SON THOMAS KAVANAGH , BUT THE TITLE OF PRINCE OF LEINSTER IS AT THIS MOMENT WITH A PATRICK KAVANAGH WHO'S RESIDENCE IS IN PEMBROKE WALES ENGLAND , THIS PATRICK KAVANAGH IS THE DESCENDANT OF RICHARD DECLARE WHO WAS THE SECOND EARL OF PEMBROKE IN ( 1171 ) HOW DID THE FAMILY OF DECLARE END UP WITH OUR NAME ? SINCE HE MARRIED THE DAUGHTER OF DIARMAIT MACMURCHADA AND THAT FAMILY SHOULD HAVE THE NAME DECLARE NOT KAVANAGH , SO JUST HOW DID THE FAMILY OF DECLARE GET THE NAME KAVANAGH ? OR IS THIS JUST A MISTAKE OF THE ENGLISH ,.

The next here are my own family and though I'm not one hundred percent that we are the next in line to the ones above , it is most unlikely that anyone can prove me wrong since there are supposed to be no record's after this point of the Catholics of this time and since I'm told that as far as they know I am the only one that has been able to trace them back this far , and I do have all the documents to prove what I say on my family's side is correct and from the following Years I am missing only one or two step's back in time , what I need may have been destroyed by the English Cromwellian Army , but even at that who can say I'm wrong and do they have the proofe .
